Waiting on Wednesday (20)

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

(Oops, posted it on Tuesday. Oh well. One less thing to worry about on Wednesday.)

So I saw the cover and description went up for this just a little while ago and I did a very embarrassing arm-flail I'm glad the Internet couldn't see. Not only did I feature the first book of the series (The Gathering Storm) as an earlier Waiting on Wednesday post (see?), but I also read it and loved it (as seen here). I'm excited about The Unfailing Light and can't wait to have a copy of my own so the creepy cover model can stare me down. I usually hate covers that can stare back at me, but I'll make an exception this time.

The Unfailing Light
by Robin Bridges
October 9, 2012
400 pages (hardcover) 

Having had no choice but to use her power has a necromancer to save Russia from dark forces, Katerina Alexandrovna, Duchess of Oldenburg, now wants to forget that she ever used her special powers. She's about to set off to pursue her lifelong dream of attending medical school when she discovers that Russia's arch nemesis--who she thought she'd destroyed--is still alive. So on imperial orders, Katerina remains at her old finishing school. She'll be safe there, because the empress has cast a potent spell to protect it against the vampires and revenants who are bent on toppling the tsar and using Katerina for their own gains. But to Katerina's horror, the spell unleashes a vengeful ghost within the school, a ghost more dangerous than any creature trying to get in.

I love hearing what others have to say about books and it makes me feel less like I'm talking to an empty auditorium, so comment away. Thank you for reading my blog post!
