This week, I'm waiting on...
Queen of Shadows
by Sarah J. Maas
Expected publication: September 10th, 2015
Genres: High Fantasy; Young Adult; Paranormal; Fae
Everyone Celaena Sardothien loves has been taken from her. But she's at last returned to the empire—for vengeance, to rescue her once-glorious kingdom, and to confront the shadows of her past . . .
She will fight for her cousin, a warrior prepared to die just to see her again. She will fight for her friend, a young man trapped in an unspeakable prison. And she will fight for her people, enslaved to a brutal king and awaiting their lost queen's triumphant return.
Celaena’s epic journey has captured the hearts and imaginations of millions across the globe. This fourth volume will hold readers rapt as Celaena’s story builds to a passionate, agonizing crescendo that might just shatter her world.
Is it terribly surprising I’d choose Queen of Shadows for my WoW this week?! I mean, just LOOK AT THE COVER!!
I need, need, need, NEED this book in my life ASAP! I’ve become obsessed with this series, and I can’t wait to see what happens next. This blurb terrifies me, though! Sarah J. Maas isn’t afraid to exterminate a few characters along the way… *sobs* I need Celaena to live! And Chaol. And Aedion. Oh, and don’t forget Dorian! He’s really begun to grow on me… And, I also need my ship to survive - Chaolaena will make it through, people!! Oh my gosh, September seriously can’t come quick enough!
