Waiting on Wednesday #50

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Jocelyn's Waiting On: 

The Burning Isle: Will Panzo 
Publication Date: October 4th, 2016 


A powerful and gripping debut grimdark fantasy novel, set in a world of criminals, pirates, assassins, and magic…

“A man has only three reasons for being anywhere: to right a wrong, to earn a coin, or because he is lost.”

Cassius is not lost…

The mage Cassius has just arrived on the island of Scipio. Five miles of slum on the edge of fifty miles of jungle, Scipio is a lawless haven for criminals, pirates, and exiles. The city is split in two, each half ruled by a corrupt feudal lord. Both of them answer to a mysterious general who lives deep in the jungle with his army, but they still constantly battle for power. If a man knows how to turn their discord to his advantage, he might also turn a profit…

But trained on the Isle of Twelve, Cassius is no ordinary spellcaster, and his goal is not simply money. This a treacherous island where the native gods are restless, and anything can happen…

This book looks so cool! A JUNGLE? WITH MAGIC?!!!! YES PLEASE! Plus Ace Roc publishes some mean fantasy books *cough* The Sookie Stackhouse Series *cough* so I definitely trust them ;). 

Cassie's Waiting On: 

Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass #5) by Sarah J. Maas
Publication Date: September 6, 2016


Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass, #5)The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those don't.

As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world. With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.

Aelin's journey from assassin to queen has entranced millions across the globe, and this fifth installment will leave fans breathless. Will Aelin succeed in keeping her world from splintering, or will it all come crashing down?

I think pretty much everybody is waiting on this book...I know I have ever since Queen of Shadows was released haha! This book is going to be epic in so many ways, and I seriously cannot wait for it to be in my (and all of your) hands!  Plus, look at that amazing cover!!  That already shows how wicked this book will be :)
