Waiting on Wednesday #98

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: 
The Fallen Kingdom (The Falconer, #3)
The Fallen Kingdom (The Falconer #3) by Elizabeth May 
Publication Date: June 13, 2017

The long-awaited final book in the Falconer trilogy is an imaginative tour-de-force that will thrill fans of the series. Aileana Kameron, resurrected by ancient fae magic, returns to the world she once knew with no memory of her past and with dangerous powers she struggles to control. Desperate to break the curse that pits two factions of the fae against each other in a struggle that will decide the fate of the human and fae worlds, her only hope is hidden in an ancient book guarded by the legendary Morrigan, a faery of immense power and cruelty. To save the world and the people she loves, Aileana must learn to harness her dark new powers even as they are slowly destroying her. Packed with immersive detail, action, romance, and fae lore, and publishing simultaneously in the UK, The Fallen Kingdom brings the Falconer's story to an epic and unforgettable conclusion. 

This conclusion has been a long time coming and I couldn't be more excited for it! The second book blew me away and that was well worth the wait, so I don't expect anything different with this one! Elizabeth May knows how to tell an extraordinary story, so I can't wait to see how the story ends. Plus, isn't that cover gorgeous??

Jocelyn's Waiting On: 
The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell 
Publication Date: July 18th, 2017 


Stop the Magician.
Steal the book.
Save the future.

In modern day New York, magic is all but extinct. The remaining few who have an affinity for magic—the Mageus—live in the shadows, hiding who they are. Any Mageus who enters Manhattan becomes trapped by the Brink, a dark energy barrier that confines them to the island. Crossing it means losing their power—and often their lives.

Esta is a talented thief, and she's been raised to steal magical artifacts from the sinister Order that created the Brink. With her innate ability to manipulate time, Esta can pilfer from the past, collecting these artifacts before the Order even realizes she’s there. And all of Esta's training has been for one final job: traveling back to 1902 to steal an ancient book containing the secrets of the Order—and the Brink—before the Magician can destroy it and doom the Mageus to a hopeless future.

But Old New York is a dangerous world ruled by ruthless gangs and secret societies, a world where the very air crackles with magic. Nothing is as it seems, including the Magician himself. And for Esta to save her future, she may have to betray everyone in the past.

Magic and time travel? Yes please! I have yet to read anything by Ms. Maxwell, but I've heard great things about her peter pan retelling, Unhooked. This seems like a book about classic magic, and I can't wait to see what The Last Magician has in store for us! Also, beautiful cover am I right?

  1. OOh nice picks! Haven't read the first series but I did start reading The Last Magician awhile back. It was a little confusing so I set it aside and haven't really gotten back to it. Hope you both enjoy your reads once you get them!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!
