Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we’re eagerly anticipating. This week I’m choosing Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas which is the fourth book in Throne of Glass series. I’ve just caught up on the series and read book three, Heir of Fire. I waited until closer to the Queen of Shadows release so I wouldn’t have to wait as long between books (although, since it’s a 6 book series, I will have a lot more waiting ahead of me). The second book, Crown of Midnight, broke me and I knew I wouldn’t be able to handle it again so I’m considering re-reading the series each year before the new book is released. The only other series I’ve done that with is Harry Potter. Seriously, it’s that good.
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. (via Goodreads)
