Waiting On Wednesday #26

Days of Blood and Starlight
by: Laini Taylor
Expected Release: November 6th, 2012

Synopsis: In this stunning sequel to the highly acclaimed "Daughter of Smoke and Bone," Karou must come to terms with who and what she is, and how far she'll go to avenge her people. Filled with heartbreak and beauty, mysteries and secrets, new characters and old favorites, Days of Blood and Starlight brings the richness, color and intensity of the first book to a brand new canvas.

Shadowfell
by: Juliet Marillier
Expected Release: September 11th, 2012

Synopsis: Its name is spoken only in whispers, if the people of Alban dare to speak it at all: Shadowfell. The training ground for rebels seeking to free their land from the grip of the tyrannical king is so shrouded in mystery that most believe it to be a myth.

But for Neryn, Shadowfell's existence is her only hope. She is penniless, orphaned, and utterly alone - and concealing a treacherous magical power that will warrant her immediate enslavement should it be revealed. She finds hope of allies in the Good Folk, fey beings whom she must pretend she cannot see and who taunt her with chatter of prophecies and tests, and in a striking, mysterious stranger, who saves her from certain death but whose motives remain unclear. She knows she should not trust anyone with her plans, but something within her longs to confide in him.

Will Neryn be forced to make the dangerous journey alone? She must reach Shadowfell, not only to avenge her family and salvage her own life, but to rescue Alban itself.

The Torn Wing
by: Kiki Hamilton
Expected Release Date: October 2nd, 2012

Synopsis:  A bloody escape, a deadly threat, a shocking revelation...

Tiki’s greatest fear suddenly becomes all too real: the fey have returned to London seeking revenge. As war escalates in the Otherworld, Queen Victoria’s youngest son, Prince Leopold, is attacked. In order to protect her family and those she loves, Tiki needs to know the meaning of an fáinne sí, the birthmark that winds around her wrist. But will she be brave enough to face the truth?

  • Days of Blood and Starlight - Firstly, I think this cover blows the first book's cover out of the water. The cover for his book is freaking stunning. I also, really loved the first book and I cannot wait to see where Karou will end up in this sequel.
  • Shadowfell - This book sounds like a Maria V. Synder or Samantha Young book, and I absolutely adore adventures in magical worlds. I have a feeling I'll really enjoy Shadowfell and cannot wait to read it.
  • The Torn Wing - I loved The Faerie Ring so much. I cannot wait to read more of Tiki's story. Plus, I need way more Rieker! I ADORE him.

  2. I still have to read The Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I will make time to read the book before the second book comes out. I'm excited to read The Torn Wing! The first book was great!

  3. I am DYING for Days of Blood and Starlight. Daughter of Smoke and Bone was one of my top best reads last year. I was so blown away. I'll definitely be picking Book 2 up the second it's available. I've never heard of Shadowfell but it sure sounds like a good read. I'll have to check that one out. *sigh* I haven't even read The Faerie Ring yet (don't hate me LOL) so I can't say much for The Torn Wing, but I hope to read both books. Eventually! *runs away*

    Wonderful wonderful picks! <33
