"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
The Dread by Gail Z. Martin:
War has come to the Winter Kingdoms. The Dread will rise. Kings will fall.Summoner-King Tris Drayke takes what remains of his army north to fight a war he is ill-prepared to fight, as reports from spies confirm Tris's worst fear. A new threat rises across the sea: a dark summoner who intends to make the most of the Winter Kingdoms's weakness.
And in Isencroft, Kiara's father is assassinated and she will now have no choice except to return and claim the crown. But she must leave behind her husband Tris and their infant son and face the dark power that threatens her rule.
With this, the epic conclusion to Gail's Fallen Kings Cycle, it looks like I have another series to get caught up on. First, though, I need to wrap up her Chronicles of the Necromancer (which shares the same world).
