Waiting on Wednesday (#115): Glittering Shadows by Jaclyn Dolamore


"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:


Glittering Shadows by Jaclyn Dolamore
Book Two of Dark Metropolis series
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Publication Date: June 16, 2015

Summary (from Goodreads):

The revolution is here. 

Bodies line the streets of Urobrun; a great pyre burns in Republic Square. The rebels grow anxious behind closed doors while Marlis watches as the politicians search for answers—and excuses—inside the Chancellery. 

Thea, Freddy, Nan, and Sigi are caught in the crossfire, taking refuge with a vibrant, young revolutionary and a mysterious healer from Irminau. As the battle lines are drawn, a greater threat casts a dark shadow over the land. Magic might be lost—forever. 

This action-packed sequel to Dark Metropolis weaves political intrigue, haunting magic, and heartbreaking romance into an unforgettable narrative. Dolamore's lyrical writing and masterfully crafted plot deliver a powerful conclusion.



I liked Dark Metropolis well enough, so I'm interested in reading this sequel!

  3. I didn't even realise Jaclyn Dolamore had written another series after Magic Under Glass! This sounds cool (although I probably shouldn't have read this summary if I haven't read this first book) so I'm adding it to the TBR.
