Waiting on Wednesday #142

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:

Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas
Throne of Glass #6
Expected Publication: September 5th 2017 by Bloomsbury

In the next installment of the New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series, follow Chaol on his sweeping journey to a distant empire.

Chaol Westfall has always defined himself by his unwavering loyalty, his strength, and his position as the Captain of the Guard. But all of that has changed since the glass castle shattered, since his men were slaughtered, since the King of Adarlan spared him from a killing blow, but left his body broken.

His only shot at recovery lies with the legendary healers of the Torre Cesme in Antica—the stronghold of the southern continent's mighty empire. And with war looming over Dorian and Aelin back home, their survival might lie with Chaol and Nesryn convincing its rulers to ally with them.

But what they discover in Antica will change them both—and be more vital to saving Erilea than they could have imagined.
Tower of Dawn is set parallel to Empire of Storms but will follow Chaol Westfall - who was woefully absent from EoS - instead of the usual MC Aelin.  I guess now it makes sense that he was MIA if he's going to get center stage in this one.  I've always adored Chaol even though I've come to accept that who I first shipped him with simply wasn't meant to be.  As Bec of Readers in Wonderland once said: I'm Maas thrash so naturally I'm eager to get into Chaol's POV...especially since this started out as a novella and turned into a full-length book. What the hell happens in Antica?!

What are you waiting on this week?

  1. Yes, I'm so looking forward to this book! I really liked Chaol in the beginning of the series, but my positivist towards him began to wane quite a bit as the series wore on, so I'm really interested to finally read a book that focuses on him and his story and hopefully go back to liking him as much as I did in the beginning. Great pick!

  2. GAH- CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS!!! I seriously think I was the last person to find out that this wasn't going to be the last ToG book, LOLOL. My curiosity is totally killing me because this went from a novella to a hefty novel AND without Aelin and co. Is it too much to hope for that there'll at least be a Chaol/Dorian bromance moment at the end of this? XD

  3. I hated that Chaol was absent in the last book! That and other things made me so upset with the series that I wasn't even sure I was going to continue...but knowing this one is all about Chaol, I think I'll have to pick it up after all!
