Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I am waiting (and appears I will continue to wait for the ending) for One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake
Expected publication: September 19th 2017 by Harper Teen
The battle for the Crown has begun, but which of the three sisters will prevail?
With the unforgettable events of the Quickening behind them and the Ascension Year underway, all bets are off. Katharine, once the weak and feeble sister, is stronger than ever before. Arsinoe, after discovering the truth about her powers, must figure out how to make her secret talent work in her favor without anyone finding out. And Mirabella, once thought to be the strongest sister of all and the certain Queen Crowned, faces attacks like never before—ones that put those around her in danger she can’t seem to prevent.
In this enthralling sequel to Kendare Blake’s New York Times bestselling Three Dark Crowns, Fennbirn’s deadliest queens must face the one thing standing in their way of the crown: each other (goodreads summary)
Why I Am Waiting
Well I was anxious to see what happened after the cliff hanger of Three Dark Crowns and get to the end of the conclusion of the story, buuuuut it appears that due to the overwhelming popularity of the first book Kendare Blake has now decided to extend the series from two books to FOUR. FOUR! ugh WHY?! Dulogies are great! I really liked this first book and was intrigued by this strange island that had queens kill of their sisters with their magical abilities in order to win their crown. But I’m not sure this story is enough for FOUR books.
Sorry this waiting on Wednesday post has turned into whining on Wednesday about waiting for more books. I’m still excited for the release of One Dark Throne though, just bummed I wont get the conclusion I was waiting for just yet.
BTW if you have read TDC who is your favorite queen? I’m still a little torn between Arsinoe and Katharine. I just wish Jules could be queen. She’s the toughest of them all. Watch that be a twist in one of the newly added books! HA!
