Waiting on Wednesday (#226): Into the Bright Unknown by Rae Carson


"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:


Into the Bright Unknown by Rae Carson
Book Three of the Gold Seer trilogy
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Publication Date: October 10, 2017

Summary (from Goodreads):

Leah Westfall, her fiancé Jefferson, and her friends have become rich in the California Territory, thanks to Lee’s magical ability to sense precious gold. But their fortune has made them a target, and when a dangerous billionaire sets out to destroy them, Lee and her friends decide they’ve had enough—they will fight back with all their power and talents. Lee’s magic is continuing to strengthen and grow, but someone is on to her—someone who might have a bit of magic herself. The stakes are higher than ever as Lee and her friends hatch a daring scheme that could alter the California landscape forever. With a distinctive young heroine and a unique interpretation of American history, Into the Bright Unknown strikes a rich vein of romance, magic, and adventure, bringing the Gold Seer Trilogy to its epic conclusion. Includes a map and an author’s note.



To be fair, I haven't read Like a River Glorious yet (though I do have it). I plan to binge-read that one and this conclusion novel! =)

  3. I am such a slacker. I loved the first book in this series, but have not gotten to book two yet. Uh, I guess I should giddy up if book 3 will be out in Oct!!! Great pick. A Carson book is always a good experience for me.

  7. That cover is so pretty! I haven't read any of the others in this series, but I may have to check them out one day! I have a book or two on my Kindle that I am waiting to read until I can get the next one so I can read them together. haha! I'm not good at waiting to find out what happens.

  10. I can't wait for this one either! I loved Walk on Earth a Stranger. I didn't enjoy book two as much, but it was still very good. Can't wait to see how the trilogy ends.

    1. Ahhh, interesting. I've seen most people say that book two was even better than book one! I have yet to read it so I'll see how it goes for me in a few months. :D I hope you enjoy this book, Mogsy!

  18. Binge reading is the absolute best way to read a series. Every single time I go to read a new book in a series I am either rereading or looking for spoilers. lol Anyways, this series is one that is high on my list as well. I hope that we both love it. :)

  20. This is a new author to me but the book sounds great. So unique. I've never read anything like it. I'm more into contemporary now but as miss paranormal/urban fantasy books lately. I'll check out this book. Thanks for sharing, Alyssa. :)

  22. Ooh nice cover! Magic and the California Territory- that's a unique setting seems like and I remember seeing the first two. This cover might be the best of the three! And it does sound really good...
