Waiting on Wednesday (59)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on The Offering by Kimberly Derting (1/7/14):

Description on Goodreads:
True love—and world war—is at stake in the conclusion to The Pledge trilogy, a dark and romantic blend of dystopia and fantasy.
Charlie, otherwise known as Queen Charlaina of Ludania, has become comfortable as a leader and a ruler. She’s done admirable work to restore Ludania’s broken communications systems with other Queendoms, and she’s mastered the art of ignoring Sabara, the evil former queen whose Essence is alive within Charlie. Or so she thinks.

When the negotiation of a peace agreement with the Queendom of Astonia goes awry, Charlie receives a brutal message that threatens Ludania, and it seems her only option is to sacrifice herself in exchange for Ludanian freedom.

But things aren’t always as they seem. Charlie is walking into a trap—one set by Sabara, who is determined to reclaim the Queendoms at any cost.
Why I’m Waiting:
So, I’m a huge Kimberly Derting fan. I’ve been loving this dystopian series by her since the first one came out. And I was so happy to finally see a cover for this third installment. And it’s a cover that isn’t all dark and gloomy like the others! I just love how Derting writes suspense and romance. And I know I won’t be disappointed in this one. What are you waiting on this week?
