"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week, I'm featuring:
The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas
Book One of the Elemental trilogy
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Publication Date: September 17, 2013
Summary (from Goodreads):
It all began with a ruined elixir and an accidental bolt of lightning…
Iolanthe Seabourne is the greatest elemental mage of her generation—or so she's being told. The one prophesied for years to be the savior of The Realm. It is her duty and destiny to face and defeat the Bane, the greatest mage tyrant the world has ever known. A suicide task for anyone let alone a sixteen-year-old girl with no training, facing a prophecy that foretells a fiery clash to the death.
Prince Titus of Elberon has sworn to protect Iolanthe at all costs but he's also a powerful mage committed to obliterating the Bane to revenge the death of his family—even if he must sacrifice both Iolanthe and himself to achieve his goal.
But Titus makes the terrifying mistake of falling in love with the girl who should have been only a means to an end. Now, with the servants of the Bane closing in, he must choose between his mission and her life.
Okay. I'm cheating a little. I've had an eARC of this book for months now. BUT, the new cover was revealed, and I really can't wait to read this book! I'm not reading it until July, because I'm still getting through June/July eARCs.
I absolutely loved the old cover, and I miss it, but this cover is fantastic. BUT, if anyone has an ARC of The Burning Sky with the old cover that they don't want... PLEASE let me know. PLEASE. I will beg and grovel and plead.
Love you all!
