Waiting on Wednesday: The Bitter Kingdom by Rae Carson

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.
(Coming August 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.

"Carson joins the ranks of writers like Kristin Cashore, Megan Whalen Turner, and Tamora Pierce as one of YA's best writers of high fantasy."-Locus magazine

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.
I can't wait for the conclusion to this series! After finishing the second book, The Crown of Embers, my sister and I spent almost an entire weekend discussing it and how much we loved it. And after being able to meet Rae at the Austin Teen Book Festival as well, I've been even more excited to get my hands on the final installment. She created such a fascinating world, and even more fascinating characters!
What are you waiting on? 


  1. This is a series I have been wanting to read for quite a long time now. For some reason it reminds me of Game of Thrones but a YA version of GOT.
    Your excitement for the series has me very interested in it.

  2. I still haven't read the blurb, because I'm waiting for my copy of part two. But I'm so excited. I loved the first book :D
