Waiting on Wednesday: The Perilous Sea

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine and is a fun way to see what books other bloggers just can't wait to get their hands on!


The Burning Sky #2
Young Adult/Fantasy
Releases September 16th from Balzer + Bray

After 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.


I absolutely adored The Burning Sky last year, it was one of the books that fully cemented my new found love of the fantasy genre and I simply cannot wait to get back to Titus and Iolanthe. Sherry Thomas writes outstanding characters in my opinion, and I was completely mesmerized by the world itself and the way the friendship and eventual romance unfolded, so this sequel really cannot release fast enough for me! *stares longingly at calendar*

  1. I never got to read Burning Sky although I've heard many good things. Maybe I'll get to it before this comes out.

  6. I'm so excited for this too, Jenny! I loved the first book and I can't wait for more Iolanthe, Titus and butterfly-inducing romance! :) And isn't this cover just gorgeous? When the cover was first revealed, I couldn't stop staring at it for a solid 10 minutes.
