Waiting on Wednesday (2)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where bloggers feature upcoming book releases that they're looking forward to.

This week I'm eagerly anticipating...

by Andrea Cremer

Publisher: Philomel (Penguin)
Release Date: January 8, 2013

Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Everything Conatus stands for is at risk. Hoping to gather enough resistance to save their order, Ember and Barrow attempt a desperate escape. But fate offers little mercy. When their mission is exposed, the couple face relentless pursuit by the supernatural horrors that act on the commands of Eira’s ally: the mysterious Bosque Mar. A shocking revelation forces Ember out of hiding, sending her back into the heart of dark magic at Tearmunn keep, where she must convince her old friend Alistair of her love or face dire consequences. Ember’s deception offers the only chance for the resistance to succeed, but what she discovers in the shadows beneath the keep will shatter her world and bring about the Witches’ War.

Richly sensual and full of magic, action and danger, Andrea Cremer's fifth book set in the Nightshade world is an edge-of-your-seat page turner.

Add it on Goodreads.

I haven't actually read the Nightshade books yet, but I really enjoyed the first prequel, Rift, so I'm counting down the days 'til this one!

Also, I recognize that these covers are fierce, but does anyone else prefer the pretty UK ones?


  1. Enjoyed but didn't adore the first one but I'm still intrigued enough to want to know what happens!

  2. You know, I freaking LOVED the original Nightshade covers. I hated what they got switched to. It looks so bland and boring. The original Nightshade literally shimmered. STUNNING. Now? No sparkle.

    But at least the prequel series matches them, so there's that.

    Rift was fantastic and I have high hopes for Rise. But, I also fell hard for Nightshade and by the end of the series I was ready to burn my books. (I have since recovered from that feeling.)

    Andrea Cremer is a fantastic writer, but she's also gutsy. She takes big risks with her characters and no one is safe.

    1. Ahh yes, those cover changes seemed to bring about a lot of dislike. I definitely don't care for the new ones either.

      Ooooer this makes me nervous. I still really want to read the trilogy at some point, though.

  3. I haven't read this series yet but I might just have to start!

  4. This looks good. :D Haha. I've not read the other books but I really should get on that......;)

  5. I've not read this series yet, but it's on my TBR list! I love those covers, but I am a sucker for the pretty ones we have here in the UK. ^.^
    Thanks for sharing, also - thanks for stopping by my blog! ^.^

  6. Sounds pretty awesome and I would love to read it. I haven't finished the Nightshade trilogy yet so that's first on the list. Great pick! I hope you enjoy reading it.

  7. I want to read the Rift series too! I haven't even read Bloodrose yet. [I know.. I know!] Thanks for stopping by the blog! and you've got new follower here!

  8. Okay so I read Nightshade and then abandoned the series but I'll be finishing that up and so it's definite that I;ll read this series, too. Also, the covers are gorgeous!

    Here's my WoW!

  9. I liked Nightshade but hated the second so I'm wondering about if this series would be any better. I did love the world so maybe I'd like this. Anyways, hope you enjoy! Thanks for sharing :D

  10. I've only read Nightshade but I really need to continue with this series because I love it. I'm interested about the prequels too because I'm not sure how they are going to work without Calla. Great pick!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment; I appreciate each one!
