Yay! I've finally made it to another Waiting on Wednesday! The universe seems to conspire against me whenever I try to take part in this, but this week marks two on the go. Success! A big thank you to Jill at Breaking The Spine for hosting this weekly feature.
My Waiting on Wednesday this week is Siren's Song by Mary Weber. It's also Siren's Fury. That book came out this year but I absolutely refuse to read it until the finale of the trilogy is out. The ending of Storm Siren nearly tore my heart out, and I won't put myself through that again until I have the next book to dive into. In April 2016.
So here's book one - Storm Siren;
As a slave in the war-weary kingdom of Faelen, seventeen-year-old Nym isn’t merely devoid of rights, her Elemental kind are only born male and always killed at birth - meaning she shouldn’t even exist.
Standing on the auction block beneath smoke-drenched mountains, Nym faces her fifteenth sell. But when her hood is removed and her storm-summoning killing curse revealed, Nym is snatched up by a court advisor and given a choice: be trained as the weapon Faelen needs to win the war, or be killed. Choosing the former, Nym is unleashed into a world of politics, bizarre parties, and rumors of an evil more sinister than she’s being prepared to fight . . . not to mention the handsome trainer whose dark secrets lie behind a mysterious ability to calm every lightning strike she summons.
But what if she doesn’t want to be the weapon they’ve all been waiting for? Set in a beautifully eclectic world of suspicion, super abilities, and monsters, Storm Siren is a story of power. And whoever controls that power will win.
I'd been kind of ignoring this series until the finale was out, but now I've got myself all worked up for it again. Dammit! Still, only 126 days to go ... Quick, someone give me some book recommendations to take my mind off it! What's on your Waiting on Wednesday?
