"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
The Last Mortal Bond by Brian Staveley
Expected publication: March 15th 2016 by Tor Books
The trilogy that began with The Emperor's Blades and continued in The Providence of Fire reaches its epic conclusion, as war engulfs the Annurian Empire in Brian Staveley's The Last Mortal Bond
The ancient csestriim are back to finish their purge of humanity; armies march against the capital; leaches, solitary beings who draw power from the natural world to fuel their extraordinary abilities, maneuver on all sides to affect the outcome of the war; and capricious gods walk the earth in human guise with agendas of their own.
But the three imperial siblings at the heart of it all--Valyn, Adare, and Kaden--come to understand that even if they survive the holocaust unleashed on their world, there may be no reconciling their conflicting visions of the future.
Brian announced on Facebook last week that "It is finished," and those are 3 of the sweetest words I have heard in a good long while. We're looking at a March release, as opposed to January (as was the case with the first two books), so I suspect there won't be an early ARC landing for xmas . . . but one can always hope.
