Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blog post by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights releases we're eagerly awaiting.
The next blazing-hot installment of the Souls of Fire series from the New York Times bestselling author of Flameout
The clock is ticking as Emberly--a phoenix capable of taking human form--races to take revenge against the sadistic and mysterious Rinaldo. The elusive rebel leader threatens to keep killing until he is given all of the research about a plaguelike virus derived from vampire blood. 

Forced to reach out to the Paranormal Investigations Team for help, Emberly and her partner, Jackson, must decide who to trust as they follow the trail of dead bodies. When classified information is leaked and their safe house is ambushed, Emberly's suspicions are confirmed--someone at PIT has betrayed them. 

A final battle looms and Emberly will need to command all her powers--or watch the world turn to ash....

Love this new series by Keri! Hoping my copy of this comes in soonish! I signed up for the blog tour and hoping to get an early copy any day now! LOL!

TITLE: Ashes Reborn
AUTHOR: Keri Arthur
PUBLISHER: Berkley Books
GENRE: Urban Fantasy
RELEASE DATE: September 5, 2017

In this action-packed sequel to Frostblood, the future of Ruby's world and a court ruled by the love of her life depends on the uncovered secrets of her past..

Against all odds, Ruby has defeated the villainous Frost King and melted his throne of ice. But the bloodthirsty Minax that was trapped inside is now haunting her kingdom and everyone she loves. The answers to its demise may lie to the south in Sudesia, the land of the Firebloods, and a country that holds the secrets to Ruby's powers and past....

Despite warnings from her beloved Arcus, Ruby accompanies a roguish Fireblood named Kai to Sudesia, where she must master her control of fire in a series of trials to gain the trust of the suspicious Fireblood queen. Only then can she hope to access the knowledge that could defeat the rampaging Minax--which grows closer every moment. But as sparks fly in her moments alone with Kai, how can Ruby decide whom to trust? The fate of both kingdoms is now in her hands.
I tried unsuccessfully to get an ARC of this one since I read an ARC of Frostblood, my attempts were futile! So I find myself waiting for it to release the old fashion way! Sigh...this is what I get for reading ARCs of first books! LOL!
