Waiting on Wednesday (#100): Empire of Night by Kelley Armstrong


"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:


Empire of Night by Kelley Armstrong
Book Two of the Age of Legends series
Publisher: HarperCollins
Publication Date: April 7, 2015

Summary (from Goodreads):

Sisters Moria and Ashyn are the Keeper and Seeker of Edgewood. Or at least, they were.

Their village is gone. Their friends have betrayed them. And now, the emperor has sent them on a mission to rescue the children of Edgewood—accompanied by Prince Tyrus and a small band of imperial warriors. But the journey proves more perilous than they could have imagined. With treachery and unrest mounting in the empire, Moria and Ashyn will have to draw on all their influence and power to overcome deadly enemies—not all of them human—and even avert an all-out war.



Sea of Shadows was one of my favorite novels of 2014! Fantasy is awesome :D


Also - 100 Waiting on Wednesday posts!! I'm going to do a post on how many books I've read, of the 100 that I have featured. Yes.

  16. Congratulations on your 100th WoW post! I've always wanted to see how many of my WoW picks I've actually read. It should be a high percentage because I usually feature books that I have for review.

    I haven't read anything by this author before. I hope you enjoy reading this one. Thanks for stopping by My WoW.
