Wishlist Wednesday is a book blog hop where we will post about one book per week that has been on our wishlist for some time, or just added, that we can’t wait to get off the wishlist and onto our wonderful shelves. Hosted by the wonderful PentoPaper Blog!
My choice for this week is
The Bitter Kingdom by Rae Carson
Release date: Aug 27th 2013
The epic and deeply satisfying conclusion to Rae Carson’s Fire and Thorns trilogy. The seventeen-year-old sorcerer-queen will travel into the unknown realm of the enemy to win back her true love, save her country, and uncover the final secrets of her destiny.
Elisa is a fugitive in her own country. Her enemies have stolen the man she loves in order to lure her to the gate of darkness. As she and her daring companions take one last quest into unknown enemy territory to save Hector, Elisa will face hardships she’s never imagined. And she will discover secrets about herself and her world that could change the course of history. She must rise up as champion-a champion to those who have hated her most. Riveting, surprising, and achingly romantic, Rae Carson has spun a bold and powerful conclusion to her extraordinary trilogy. (End Goodreads)
I. can’t. wait. for this book to come out. I only just read the first two in this trilogy and it was like a breath of fresh air. Finally a heroine I’m not seriously annoyed by, finally a main character with obvious but not annoying flaws, finally a love story that wasn’t so generic (HECTOR!). I really like Rae’s writing style and I love the book 2 ended on Elisa preparing to go on an adventure.
