Waiting on Wednesday *141*

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we spotlight an upcoming book release we're especially looking forward to!

Here's my pick this week: 

Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson
The Stormlight Archive #3
Expected Publication: November 14th 2017 by Tor

In Oathbringer, the third volume of the New York Times bestselling Stormlight Archive, humanity faces a new Desolation with the return of the Voidbringers, a foe with numbers as great as their thirst for vengeance.

Dalinar Kholin's Alethi armies won a fleeting victory at a terrible cost: The enemy Parshendi summoned the violent Everstorm, which now sweeps the world with destruction, and in its passing awakens the once peaceful and subservient parshmen to the horror of their millennia-long enslavement by humans. While on a desperate flight to warn his family of the threat, Kaladin Stormblessed must come to grips with the fact that the newly kindled anger of the parshmen may be wholly justified.

Nestled in the mountains high above the storms, in the tower city of Urithiru, Shallan Davar investigates the wonders of the ancient stronghold of the Knights Radiant and unearths dark secrets lurking in its depths. And Dalinar realizes that his holy mission to unite his homeland of Alethkar was too narrow in scope. Unless all the nations of Roshar can put aside Dalinar's blood-soaked past and stand together--and unless Dalinar himself can confront that past--even the restoration of the Knights Radiant will not prevent the end of civilization.
OATHBRINGER!!! *heavy breathing* *internal screaming* We finally have a cover and it is GLORIOUS!  This series is easily my favorite high-fantasy series OF LIFE but the wait between the books is killer - for real - the last book came out in 2014 O.O  Honestly, the series is worth it though, it's my favorite Sanderson offering so far and that is saying something.  I know I still have to wait until November to get my greedy hands on this beast but I'm already counting down the days!

Where are my Stormlight Archive peeps?
What are you waiting on this week?

This blog is an award-free zone. I appreciate the thought but I can't invest the time needed.
