Waiting on Wednesday (11): The Burning Sky

 Hi Loves!

This week I'm waiting on...

The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas
Releasing: September 17th 2013

Goodreads Summary

It all began with a ruined elixir and an accidental bolt of lightning…

Iolanthe Seabourne is the greatest elemental mage of her generation—or so she's being told. The one prophesied for years to be the savior of The Realm. It is her duty and destiny to face and defeat the Bane, the greatest mage tyrant the world has ever known. A suicide task for anyone let alone a sixteen-year-old girl with no training, facing a prophecy that foretells a fiery clash to the death.

Prince Titus of Elberon has sworn to protect Iolanthe at all costs but he's also a powerful mage committed to obliterating the Bane to revenge the death of his family—even if he must sacrifice both Iolanthe and himself to achieve his goal.

But Titus makes the terrifying mistake of falling in love with the girl who should have been only a means to an end. Now, with the servants of the Bane closing in, he must choose between his mission and her life.

Why I'm Waiting: Because mages are awesome, duh, and I really need a good high-fantasy novel! I'm not feeling the whole guy-using-girl angle, but hey, it is what it is. This could be a killer book, I can feel it, and all the books I'm dying for don't come out until later this year! *Sigh* I guess this will be another reason to look forward to the months of September-December...

What are you waiting on?


  1. I don't usually read high fantasy, but I definitely plan on checking this one out. That cover is seriously spectacular. Great pick!

  2. I haven't heard of this one before but it sounds epic! Definitely looking forward to it :)

  3. This looks really good. It's new to me. Happy that you shared.

The Truth And Nothing BUT...

Going by FTC guidelines, allow me to point out that all the novels reviewed on this blog were either bought by me, or given by an author or publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Those books received from Authors and Publishers will be stated clearly as such, as will the ones purchased by myself. There is no shady business going on; no coercion, bribery or compensation has or will ever be received in exchange for any reviews. These thoughts are mine, wacky as they may be, and my honest opinion is all you can truly expect. Still reading? You should be off checking out those awesome reviews ;)
