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 highly anticipated sequel to Flame in the Mist—an addictive, sumptuous finale that will leave readers breathless from the bestselling author of The Wrath and the Dawn.

After Okami is captured in the Jukai forest, Mariko has no choice—to rescue him, she must return to Inako and face the dangers that have been waiting for her in the Heian Castle. She tricks her brother, Kenshin, and betrothed, Raiden, into thinking she was being held by the Black Clan against her will, playing the part of the dutiful bride-to-be to infiltrate the emperor's ranks and uncover the truth behind the betrayal that almost left her dead.

With the wedding plans already underway, Mariko pretends to be consumed with her upcoming nuptials, all the while using her royal standing to peel back the layers of lies and deception surrounding the imperial court. But each secret she unfurls gives way to the next, ensnaring Mariko and Okami in a political scheme that threatens their honor, their love and very the safety of the empire.

Definitely cannot wait to see how this series ends!

The Winter Solstice. In a week. I was still new enough to being High Lady that I had no idea what my formal role was to be. If we'd have a High Priestess do some odious ceremony, as lanthe had done the year before. A year. Gods, nearly a year since Rhys had called in his bargain, desperate to get me away from the poison of the Spring Court to save me from my despair. Had he been only a minute later, the Mother knew what would have happened. Where I'd now be. Snow swirled and eddied in the garden, catching in the brown fibers of the burlap covering the shrubs My mate who had worked so hard and so selflessly, all without hope that I would ever be with him We had both fought for that love, bled for it. Rhys had died for it.

I know it's only a novella, but I am super excited to read this one too!!

  1. I have yet to read Renee's new series T.T *cries* have you read Flame in the Mist? It's on my TBR and idk if it's buying worthy.
    I'm definitely not a fan of SJM so I'll just... pass on that one.

  2. I still need to read both these series

  3. A Court of Frost and Starlight!!! YES :D

  4. I'm so excited about Smoke in the Sun. I can't wait for its release.

    Happy readings! ;)

  5. I hadn't seen Smoke in the Sun before. Thanks for the heads up. I also love the cover! 📚

  6. Smoke in the Sun has the most amazing cover. Seems like I remember the first one had a great cover as well.

  7. All SJM will be on my TBR. I am a fan. I am curious to see where she takes this series.

  8. Still haven't read ACOMAF. *sigh* I'm conflicted about that one.

  9. Flame in the Mist was sort of a mixed read for me, I'm still trying to decide if I want to read the sequel. And I still need to catch up with the ACOTAR series to look forward to the next one, but I hope you'll enjoy it!
