It appears that another Wednesday has rolled around, bringing with it the fun weekly meme Waiting on Wednesdays by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It is a highly entertaining and cooperative meme and I have a lot of fun with it, so I hope all you charming sweethearts do too!

Rebel Spring (Falling Kingdoms, #2)
Morgan Rhodes
Publisher: Razorbill
Release Date: December 3, 2013

Auranos has been conquered and the three kingdoms — Auranos, Limeros, and Paelsia — are now unwillingly united as one country called Mytica. But alluring, dangerous magic still beckons, and with it the chance to rule not just Mytica, but the world...
CLEO is now a prisoner in her own palace, forced to be an ambassador for Mytica as the evil King Gaius lies to her people
MAGNUS stands to eventually inherit the new kingdom but is still obsessed with his feelings for his adopted sister Lucia
LUCIA is haunted by the outcome of the breathtaking display of magic that allowed her father to capture the kingdoms
JONAS watches at the palace gates, a troop of rebels behind him, waiting for him to tell them how he plans to overtake King Gaius
When Gaius announces that a road is to be built into the Forbidden Mountains, formally linking all of Mytica together, he sets off a chain of events that will forever change the face of this land. Because Gaius is not just burrowing into a pile of rock. He’s tunneling directly into the Watchers’ Sanctuary. And his actions will have cosmic consequences.

I need this book, you guys. Falling Kingdoms was absolutely one of my most adored books ever, and I absolutely must know what happens next. Reading the blurb has only made me more eager. How does it not come out until December??!? *wails* I need it now!!

Also, I love the cover. I'm guessing that's supposed to be Jonas, and I love the long red cloak. It's a lot like flowing blood, which is really morbid of me to say, but it fits him. I suppose it could be Magnus (who is my favorite character by far although I love them all), but he just looks more Jonas-y.

So, yes, I'm dying for this book. I am willing to do anything for this book. Anything. Just keep that in mind.


What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
