Waiting on Wednesday

I hate waiting...
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blog post by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights releases we're eagerly awaiting.

Bad Things Always Come In Threes…

As a thief, I'm good at three things: hiding in the shadows, getting in and out unseen, and uncovering secrets. I put these skills to work for the Sinclair Family, one of the magical mobs that run the tourist town of Cloudburst Falls.

Everyone knows Victor Draconi wants to take over all the other Families--and kill every last Sinclair. What they don't know is that I'm on to him, and no way will I let the man who murdered my mom get away with hurting all the other people I care about. Especially when I've got places to break into, stuff to steal, and Devon Sinclair fighting right by my side…

"An adventurous ride you will never want to get off." --#1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout on Cold Burn of Magic.

I still need to read the second book! EEK! I'm like behind in nearly every series I read!! LOL!

TITLE: Bright Blaze of Magic
AUTHOR: Jennifer Estep
PUBLISHER: Kensington
GENRE: Paranormal YA
RELEASE DATE: April 16, 2016

The second book in the best-selling Legend trilogy comes to life in this vibrant graphic novel adaptation.

After escaping from the Republic's stronghold, Day and June are on the run in Vegas when the country learns that their Elector Primo has died and his son has stepped in to take his place. They meet up with the rebel stronghold of the Patriots—a large organization straddling the line between the Republic and its warring neighbor, the Colonies—and learn about an assassination plot against the Elector. Using threats and blackmail to get what he wants, the Patriots' leader, Razor, convinces June to let herself be captured by Republic soldiers so she can win over the Elector and feed him a decoy assassination plan. But when June realizes that the new Elector is nothing like his father, she must work with Day to try to stop the Patriots' plot before Razor can fulfill his own devastating plans.

So excited that we get to see more of this series in graphic novel format! I'm still mourning the loss of Vampire Academy! To end at Shadow's Kiss? That's just torture!! Besides, I would've LOVED to SEE Dmitri as a Strigoi!

  4. BRIGHT BLAZE OF MAGIC!!!! Yesssss. I love everything Jennifer Estep writes:)

    Thanks for stopping by My WoW earlier.

  6. I still need to read the first two in the Estep series but can I just say...Tentacles! That's all it takes on a book to draw me in....that or a cute pup...but preferably not a cute pup AND tentacles. I digress. Great choice!
