Hello, everyone! Welcome to my Waiting on Wednesdays post! It's a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and also something I have a lot of fun putting together. So, yay! My pick this week in one of my most anticipated of the year.
An assassin’s loyalties are always in doubt.
But her heart never wavers.
After a year of hard labor in the Salt Mines of Endovier, eighteen-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien has won the king's contest to become the new royal assassin. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown – a secret she hides from even her most intimate confidantes.
Keeping up the deadly charade—while pretending to do the king's bidding—will test her in frightening new ways, especially when she's given a task that could jeopardize everything she's come to care for. And there are far more dangerous forces gathering on the horizon -- forces that threaten to destroy her entire world, and will surely force Celaena to make a choice.
Where do the assassin’s loyalties lie, and who is she most willing to fight for?
So, to address first things first. The cover change. While I like the new covers that are very similar to the original UK covers, I still would prefer the old covers to a cover change. Now my covers won't match and it's annoying. I do adore this cover. It's gorgeous, and so much more fitting than the old covers. But matching sets are still preferable.
Anyway, I'm dying for this book. Throne of Glass was easily one of my favorite books, and this is one of the books I've been most dying for since the last book. I'm in the minority (aka Team Dorian) because I find Chaol boring as hell. (Sorry not sorry.) But I'll definitely be interested in seeing where this book goes since this book is completely new. I absolutely cannot wait!
