Waiting on Wednesday *72*

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by  Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming book releases that we're especially looking forward to!

I'm pretty sure that my choice this week will come as no surprise to anyone:

Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas
Throne of Glass #3
Expected Publication: September 2nd 2014 by Bloomsbury

Lost and broken, Celaena Sardothien's only thought is to avenge the savage death of her dearest friend: as the King of Adarlan's Assassin, she is bound to serve this tyrant, but he will pay for what he did. Any hope Celaena has of destroying the king lies in answers to be found in Wendlyn.

Sacrificing his future, Chaol, the Captain of the King's Guard, has sent Celaena there to protect her, but her darkest demons lay in that same place. If she can overcome them, she will be Adarlan's biggest threat - and his own toughest enemy.

While Celaena learns of her true destiny, and the eyes of Erilea are on Wendlyn, a brutal and beastly force is preparing to take to the skies. Will Celaena find the strength not only to win her own battles, but to fight a war that could pit her loyalties to her own people against those she has grown to love?
*It'sssss mine....my own...my prrrecioussss*

*ahem* *coughs*

Err, sooo yeah.  Heir of Fire has a cover and was it ever worth the wait! There was no way I wasn't reshuffling my entire WoW schedule to feature it this week.  It is stunning. I am drooling.  I want it, nay need it it my life.  Right now. Accio Heir of Fire! *waves wand around* *waits*
...
...
dammit!

In all seriousness though, I'm in love with this one already guys.  I love the choice of green, even after they tricked us with all the purple promo stuff hehe. The switch from Celaena's dual swords to a bow and arrow hints at some elvish type secrets to be revealed and I HAVE TO KNOW ALL ABOUT IT!!

Ok so, clearly I'm incapable of reigning in my inner fangirl at the moment, so I'll just stop now. O.O

Are YOU excited for Heir of Fire? Please gush in the comments below ♥
Don't forget to link me up!

  1. YES!! I was actually going to do this one for my WoW this week, but I decided to wait just a bit. I am so excited for this one to be out and I love the cover! I'm still hoping that there will be a purple one at some point hehe.

    1. I debated waiting too, till the release was closer but in the end my excitement got the best of me XD Man I can NOT wait to get my hands on this one but in the meantime, might as well bask in the pretty! I agree though, hopefully there will be a purple one down the line LOL

  2. That is quite the cover! And the blurb draws me in. Thanks for sharing and enjoy. Here's mine: “SCARED SCRIPTLESS”

  3. I was excited when I saw this too! Green just happens to be my favorite color too! lol
    I actually just finished reading Throne of Glass last week and sadly I was a bit disappointed. Don't get me wrong I really did like the story just a bit let down on certain things. I'll have my review up soon. I am looking forward to Crown of Midnight though, everyone has told me that it is so much better than the first book.
    What did you think? and have you read any of The Throne of Glass novellas?

    1. IKR, this cover just rocks SO freaking hard!! I'm sorry ToG didn't quite live up to your expectations. People either love Celaena (like me!!) or she rubs them the wrong way. I have read ALL the ToG novellas of course :) They really show a lot of details about Celaena's past and explain her current personality better. And YES CoM is even better than ToG which is awesome. It's so rare for a sequel to be better than it's predecessor!

  4. OMG I NEED THIS BOOK. SO BAD. TO THE POINT WHERE I'M TALKING IN CAP LOCKS BECAUSE I'M SO EXCITED FOR IT. September can't come fast enough. I hope it lives it to expectation.

    Check out my WoW

  5. OMG. I so want this book. I'm hoping that I can pick up a copy at BEA this year. It sounds so good. The previous books have been outstanding in the series. Great WOW pick.

    1. I am SO GLAD you're loving ToG!! I can't wait to read your thoughts on it. Not to mention CoM. Then we can pine for HoF EVEN MORE!!! XD

  7. I just need to think of how long it took me to recover from reading Crown of Midnight to make me miss this series all over again, Chaol most especially! I'm going to be so broke come fall; so many must-own books releasing then!

    1. hahaha yup CoM left a hangover that just would not go away. I still risk drowning in feels just thinking about it! We should all get together and do a re-read when September gets closer :D

  8. ACCIO HEIR OF FIRE!! haha, if ONLY that worked! Not only is that one beautiful cover (I may have drooled a bit, too), but I really can't wait to see where the story takes us next! You could try the Accio trick at BEA this year - worth a short! At least it would be better than the pushing and biting you hear about from attendees.

    1. Man I wish that worked!! *grumbles* life wouldn't be so hard if we weren't Muggles XD Anyways, I totally drooled for this one too and your right knowing where the story goes next is KIIIILLLING MEEEE! We didn't see any of the crazy shoving and bitting at BEA last year but things might get insane at the SJM autographing booth for this one. All I'm going to say is that I need it. I pretty much don't care for the rest but I need to meet the queen and get my claws on HoF O.O LOL

  9. HOW COULD I FORGET THIS BOOK. I am so ashamed of myself. That cover is so gorgeous... *happy sigh* Plus it's long so there is even more to gush over mwahaha. And good call about the bow, I noticed it but you're right about the meaning-symbolic for sure!

    1. Noooo, don't be ashamed! There's ALWAYS next week. And every other week to pine for this one until September rolls around hahaha I just saw SJM tweeted a pic and it's like DOUBLE the size of ToG and CoM! *squeeeee* Yup, I think the bow's going to usher in some big changes for our beloved Celaena!

  10. I love the look of this one so so much! It's absolutely gorgeous and I hope to get my paws on it asap!
    I hope you get it soon, we all know we'll love it :D
    Happy reading!
