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.

Return to New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh’s darkly passionate Guild Hunter world, where human-turned-angel Elena Deveraux, consort to Archangel Raphael, is thrust center stage into an eons-old prophecy....

Midnight and dawn, Elena’s wings are unique among angelkind…and now they’re failing. The first mortal to be turned into an immortal in angelic memory, she’s regressing. Becoming more and more human. Easier to hurt. Easier to kill.

Elena and Raphael must unearth the reason for the regression before it’s too late and Elena falls out of the sky. Yet even as they fight a furious battle for Elena’s very survival, violent forces are gathering in New York and across the world.

In China, the Archangel Favashi is showing the first signs of madness. In New York, a mysterious sinkhole filled with lava swallows a man whole. In Africa, torrential monsoon rains flood rolling deserts. And in Elena’s mind whispers a haunting voice that isn’t her own.

This time, survival may not be possible…not even for the consort of an archangel.

I am SUPER behind in this series yet, I still look forward to every new release because that just means more fun with Elena and Raphael...most likely! I think I have at least one or maybe two that are featuring other side characters as the main ones! It's been years since I was here in this world, so I've got a lot of catching up to do!

RELEASE DATE: October 30, 2018 

In this spellbinding sequel to the New York Times bestselling The Last Magician, Esta and Harte set off on a cross-country chase through time to steal back the elemental stones they need to save the future of magic.

Hunt the Stones.
Beware the Thief.
Avenge the Past.

Esta’s parents were murdered. Her life was stolen. And everything she knew about magic was a lie. She thought the Book of Mysteries held the key to freeing the Mageus from the Order’s grasp, but the danger within its pages was greater than she ever imagined.

Now the Book’s furious power lives inside Harte. If he can’t control it, it will rip apart the world to get its revenge, and it will use Esta to do it.

To bind the power, Esta and Harte must track down four elemental stones scattered across the continent. But the world outside the city is like nothing they expected. There are Mageus beyond the Brink not willing to live in the shadows—and the Order isn’t alone in its mission to crush them.

In St. Louis, the extravagant World’s Fair hides the first stone, but an old enemy is out for revenge and a new enemy is emerging. And back in New York, Viola and Jianyu must defeat a traitor in a city on the verge of chaos.

As past and future collide, time is running out to rewrite history—even for a time-traveling thief.

I still need to read The Last Magician but I decided to include this one anyway. I struggled with TLM the first go around and set it aside, I ended up buying a copy when I met Lisa last year, because impulse buys and all! Hoping that I will love it this time around and then love this one too!

  2. I have never read any of Singh's books, but I have been wanting to start her Rock Kiss series, because all my romance reader friends rave about her.

  3. Can you believe I still have to start Nalini Singh's series? *sigh* And what about that second title you shared? The cover kinda scares me, but I think the premise is good!

    Thanks for sharing and stopping by my blog earlier :)

  4. Ooh good stuff. Love the look of the Singh one!

  5. Great choices! Both of these are authors i'm wanting to read too.

  6. I received a copy of The Devil's Thief earlier this week, but I didn't know it was a sequel! Aw, guess I need to quickly catch up :)
