Waiting on Wednesday – Tower of Dawn

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week I am waiting waiting WAITING on Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas

Expected publication September 5th 2017 by Bloomsbury U.S.A. Children’s Books

31450852In the next installment of the New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series, follow Chaol on his sweeping journey to a distant empire.

Chaol Westfall has always defined himself by his unwavering loyalty, his strength, and his position as the Captain of the Guard. But all of that has changed since the glass castle shattered, since his men were slaughtered, since the King of Adarlan spared him from a killing blow, but left his body broken.

His only shot at recovery lies with the legendary healers of the Torre Cesme in Antica—the stronghold of the southern continent’s mighty empire. And with war looming over Dorian and Aelin back home, their survival might lie with Chaol and Nesryn convincing its rulers to ally with them.

But what they discover in Antica will change them both—and be more vital to saving Erilea than they could have imagined. (Goodreads summary)

Why I Am Waiting

  • Because Sarah J. Maas
  • Because Empire of Storms destroyed me and I need MORE!
  • Because it feels like A Court of Wings and Ruin seems like forever ago.
  • Because Sarah J. Maas
  • Because even though Chaol isn’t anywhere close to being by favorite character ( I seem to be in the minority here) I am very curious about the southern continent, we only explored a small fraction in The Assassin’s Blade stories. I want more.
  • Because I want more Nesryn.
  • Because I need more of this world.

Oh my lanta was ACOMAF just 10 times better then A Court of Thorns and Roses or what!? I read this monster of a book in one sitting, I just could not put it down!17927395

I loved this book. I loved the new Feyre. I loved the Nightcourt
. I love Rysand!

Feyre has been changed into High Fae, She is not longer the weak starving puny little human that she was in ACOTAR. She possesses power that no one truly understands. She is left emotionally scarred and broken from the events that occurred Under the Mountain. Her bargain with Rysand looms over her until it actually saves her. Tamlin doesn’t seem to notice that she’s going though all this pain, instead he goes into super high lord fae male overprotective mode and sticks her with party planning, meet and greets and won’t let her leave the manor house at all. He has his demons too, but instead of confiding in each other they both try to face them (or ignore them) alone. I didn’t so much care for Tamilin in ACOTAR, at least not like everyone else seemed to. I actually liked Rysand right off the bat, even though he seemed like a conceded tantalizing jerk, he was the only one actually trying to help Feyre win her tasks. (Aside from Lucian that is, he is still on my good list for that) Even if it might have also been for other reasons, he acted. Tamilin sat through it all. And after reading this book I LOVE Rysand! He just all around more fun! Snarky, and a shameless flirt, but then you learn there is so much more then the Night Court expected façade that he puts on for everyone else. His relationship with Feyre grows and changed throughout the story into something I’m not sure anyone expected. Unlike Tamline, he sees the value in Feyre’s strength and encourages her to train and test her abilities rather then locking her up in his home. Unlike Tamlin. The world building was much better in this book. We get to see more of Prynthian, a lot more! And we revisit the human relm. New characters from the Night Court are introduced and I, like Feyre, began the like them more and more as the book went on. Now after that ending I’m afraid I won’t see much of them in the next installment   SARAH J. MAAS PLEASE PROVE ME WRONG! Again I curse myself for being such a fast reader. I will suffer through the long wait for the next book. At least I have her newest Throne of Glass book Empire of Storms to look forward to in September!
