Waiting on Wednesday: Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

****"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.****

My pick this week is:
Ruin and Rising (The Grisha, #3)
Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
Expected publication: June 17th 2014 by Henry Holt and Co
The capital has fallen. The Darkling rules Ravka from his shadow throne.
Now the nation's fate rests with a broken Sun Summoner, a disgraced tracker, and the shattered remnants of a once-great magical army.
Deep in an ancient network of tunnels and caverns, a weakened Alina must submit to the dubious protection of the Apparat and the zealots who worship her as a Saint. Yet her plans lie elsewhere, with the hunt for the elusive firebird and the hope that an outlaw prince still survives.
Alina will have to forge new alliances and put aside old rivalries as she and Mal race to find the last of Morozova's amplifiers. But as she begins to unravel the Darkling's secrets, she reveals a past that will forever alter her understanding of the bond they share and the power she wields. The firebird is the one thing that stands between Ravka and destruction—and claiming it could cost Alina the very future she’s fighting for.

I'm kinda cheating with this one since I haven't read the second one. But, I know without reading Siege and Storm that I'm dying for this pretty. I plan on buying and reading Siege and Storm and Ruin and Rising back to back. I can't wait to finish out this amazing series. It will be well worth the wait!

  1. Don't worry. I totally do that too- not reading the last one but totally planning on buying the next one! The second book is awesome and I loved it. Ruin and Rising is going to be fantastic.
    Great post!
