Waiting on Wednesday #42




Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine and is where we can talk about books we are looking forward to being released!




Here are my picks for the week:
 
 
When the Stars Threw Down Their Spears (The Goblin Wars, #3)
 
Summary:
 
“People will die.”

Locked doors are opening, and uncanny creatures are tumbling through mysterious portals from Mag Mell, the world-between-worlds, into the streets of Chicago. The Dark Man has marked Aiden with a new song that’s scared him badly, and a frightening new group of sĂ­dhe is lurking nearby.


Teagan knows this is war, and she must protect her family. She leaves her flesh and bones behind to join Finn in hunting the evil beings across the city. Meanwhile, their relationship is heating up—almost faster than they can control. But he is still bound to fight goblins his entire life . . . and by blood she is one of them now.


Then the gateway to Mag Mell cracks open again, and the Wylltsons find themselves caught in a trap. As her loved ones begin to die, Teagan realizes that she must destroy the Dark Man and his minions once and for all in order to save those who remain . . .

. . . before it is too late.

Length: 400 pages
Expected Publication Date: June 4th 2013 by Clarion Books
 
Why I'm Waiting:
 
I loved the first two novels in Kiersten Hamilton's Goblin Wars series and I cannot wait to see how this book turns out. The only downside is we have to wait until June!
 
Between Two Thorns
 
Summary:
 
Something is wrong in Aquae Sulis, Bath’s secret mirror city.
The new season is starting and the Master of Ceremonies is missing. Max, an Arbiter of the Split Worlds Treaty, is assigned with the task of finding him with no one to help but a dislocated soul and a mad sorcerer.

There is a witness but his memories have been bound by magical chains only the enemy can break. A rebellious woman trying to escape her family may prove to be the ally Max needs.

But can she be trusted? And why does she want to give up eternal youth and the life of privilege she’s been born into?

Why I'm Waiting:
 
I LOVE the cover for this one. I'm very fond of books with covers like this and while the book's summary isn't very telling it sounds good enough for me to want to give it a try!
 
Now, what are YOU waiting for this Wednesday?

  2. The Goblin Wars series sounds vaguely familer so I'll have to check it out. I love the cover of Between Two Thorns! I thought about requesting it on netgalley, but I wasn't sure what to expect from the summary.
