Waiting on Wednesday #97

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.

Cassie's Waiting On: 
Lord of Shadows (The Dark Artifices, #2)
Lord of Shadows (The Dark Artifices #2) by Cassandra Clare 
Publication Date: May 23, 2017

Emma Carstairs has finally avenged her parents. She thought she’d be at peace. But she is anything but calm. Torn between her desire for her parabatai Julian and her desire to protect him from the brutal consequences of parabatai relationships, she has begun dating his brother, Mark. But Mark has spent the past five years trapped in Faerie; can he ever truly be a Shadowhunter again?

And the faerie courts are not silent. The Unseelie King is tired of the Cold Peace, and will no longer concede to the Shadowhunters’ demands. Caught between the demands of faerie and the laws of the Clave, Emma, Julian, and Mark must find a way to come together to defend everything they hold dear—before it’s too late.

Obviously no WoW is complete without Cassandra Clare's newest novel! I was seriously impressed by Lady Midnight and I hope that this one will be even better.  Cassie Clare is a master at writing, and I can't wait to see what's in store for my new favorite Shadowhunter gang (as well as getting some answers about our old favorites)!

Jocelyn's Waiting On: 
The Suffering Tree by Elle Cosimano 
Publication Date: June 13th, 2017


“It’s dark magic brings him back.”

Tori Burns and her family left D.C. for claustrophobic Chaptico, Maryland, after suddenly inheriting a house under mysterious circumstances. That inheritance puts her at odds with the entire town, especially Jesse Slaughter and his family—it’s their generations-old land the Burns have “stolen.” But none of that seems to matter after Tori witnesses a young man claw his way out of a grave under the gnarled oak in her new backyard. 

Nathaniel Bishop may not understand what brought him back, but it’s clear to Tori that he hates the Slaughters for what they did to him centuries ago. Wary yet drawn to him by a shared sense of loss, she gives him shelter. But in the wake of his arrival comes a string of troubling events—including the disappearance of Jesse Slaughter’s cousin—that seem to point back to Nathaniel.

As Tori digs for the truth—and slowly begins to fall for Nathaniel—she uncovers something much darker in the tangled branches of the Slaughter family tree. In order to break the centuries-old curse that binds Nathaniel there and discover the true nature of her inheritance, Tori must unravel the Slaughter family’s oldest and most guarded secrets. But the Slaughters want to keep them buried… at any cost.

As a HUGE fan of supernatural novels, it's safe to say I can't wait to read this. I love the idea of ancestral magic so this seems like a perfect novel for me. Have you heard about this book yet? Is it on your TBR?

  1. Ooh nice!! I'm super curious for Elle's book! LOVED her Nearly books, still need to read her one from last year that was not Nearly! Never really got into Clare's books sadly but I hope you both will enjoy these once you read them!
