is a weekly event that was originally hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place that spotlights upcoming releases that we´re eagerly anticipating with pure joy. There are a lot of new books coming out each year and some of them catch my attention and will get a spotlight in my Waiting on Wednesday post. While some of them will finally end up here at my place, others won´t. I am joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can´t-Wait Wednesday.

At first, I had the impression, that this was only a dilogy. But it seems that this has become a series, because of its huge success. I don´t mind, if the following book is as good and fascinating, as the first three have been. So, yes, I am one of those who are waiting for this one. I like about Kendare Blake and this series, that her style is different from most fantasy writers. She writes about magic, about nature, and reading her novels feels like reading about something that could easily have happened in the here and now. And yet, her world of the Dark Crowns isn´t from this planet.

Three Dark Queens #4
Publishing Date September 3, 2019

After the battle with Katharine, the rebellion lies in tatters. Jules´s legion curse has been unbound, leaving her out of her mind and unfit to rule. Arsinoe must find a cure, even as the responsibility of stopping the ravaging mist rests heavy on her shoulders, and her shoulders alone. Mirabella has disappeared. Queen Katharine´s rule over Fennbirn remains intact – for now. But her attack on the rebellion exacted a high price: her beloved Pietyr. Without him, who can she rely upon on truce? As oldest and youngest circle each other, and Katharine begins to yearn for the closeness that Mirabella and Arsinoe share, the dead queen hiss caution – Mirabella is not to be trusted. Three dark sisters will rise to fight as the secrets of Fennbirn´s history are laid bare. Allegiances will shift. Bonds will be tested, and some broken forever. The fate of the island lies in the hands of its queens.

Happy reading & waiting on
