[Waiting On Wednesday: The Perilous Sea]

Waiting On Wednesday happens every week on Wednesdays (hence the name) and is hosted by Breaking The Spine.  It's were people talk about the books they want to read about that aren't out yet.

My pick this week is...

"The Perilous Sea"
Author: Sherry Thomas
Release Date: August 26th, 2014

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Summary:

After spending the summer away from each other, Titus and Iolanthe (still disguised as Archer Fairfax) are eager to return to Eton College to resume their training to fight the Bane. Although no longer bound to Titus by a blood oath, Iolanthe is more committed than ever to fulfilling her destiny—especially with the agents of Atlantis quickly closing in.

Soon after arriving at school, though, Titus makes a shocking discovery, one that makes him question everything he previously believed about their mission. Faced with this devastating realization, Iolanthe is forced to come to terms with her new role, while Titus must choose between following his mother's prophecies—and forging a divergent path to an unknowable future.

I really liked The Burning Sky, a lot.  It had it's issues, but I can't wait to catch up with characters again and see what they're up to.  This book sounds so good and I'm glad that Thomas is sticking to her gender bending plot as well!  Bring it!

What are you waiting on this week?  I wanna know!

I haven't read any of this series yet. This doesn't sound like something I normally read, but I hope you enjoy it!

I CAN NOT FREAKING WAIT. This is the only physical ARC I have ever requested and I don't think I am getting it but it's not on EW and the wait might kill me. If this book shows up at BEA I'll probably cry tears of joy.

I haven't read The Burning Sky, but holy is that cover pretty. I was bummed when they did a design of the first cover, but this one is gorg. I hope you love it!
