WOW: The Perilous Sea

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

fter spending the summer away from each other, Titus and Iolanthe (still disguised as Archer Fairfax) are eager to return to Eton College to resume their training to fight the Bane. Although no longer bound to Titus by a blood oath, Iolanthe is more committed than ever to fulfilling her destiny—especially with the agents of Atlantis quickly closing in.
Soon after arriving at school, though, Titus makes a shocking discovery, one that makes him question everything he previously believed about their mission. Faced with this devastating realization, Iolanthe is forced to come to terms with her new role, while Titus must choose between following his mother's prophecies—and forging a divergent path to an unknowable future.

Let's take a moment and admire that cover first. The colors are beautiful and that is a DRAGON MADE FROM WATER. How gorgeous is that?

I read The Burning Sky last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was fun fantasy, and we don't have nearly enough fun fantasy. I have a feeling that things will get darker and harder in this volume. It is the second in a trilogy after all, but I think it will still be fun. I love this world and the characters and can not wait to read this one when it comes out on August 26, 2014.

    1. Titus and Iolanthe are amazing, though I fear things may get even more angsty in this next one. I will still love it though.
