Waiting on Wednesday (101)

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 Shadow Scale by Rachel Hartman (3/10/15):

Summary (from Goodreads):
The kingdom of Goredd: a world where humans and dragons share life with an uneasy balance, and those few who are both human and dragon must hide the truth. Seraphina is one of these, part girl, part dragon, who is reluctantly drawn into the politics of her world. When war breaks out between the dragons and humans, she must travel the lands to find those like herself—for she has an inexplicable connection to all of them, and together they will be able to fight the dragons in powerful, magical ways.

As Seraphina gathers this motley crew, she is pursued by humans who want to stop her. But the most terrifying is another half dragon, who can creep into people’s minds and take them over. Until now, Seraphina has kept her mind safe from intruders, but that also means she’s held back her own gift. It is time to make a choice: Cling to the safety of her old life, or embrace a powerful new destiny?
Why I’m Waiting:
This cover is so, so pretty. Also, how awesome does this sequel sound? I do have to admit though that I kind of forgot about Seraphina. It came out a couple years ago, and this sequel will be published at least 3 years after the first. That’s a long time. And I think I’ll have to go and skim/re-read a little because it’s kind of too long ago and I don’t remember it that well. On the other hand, I remember being blown away by it and loving it, so there’s that. So if it’s anywhere close to as good as book 1, I know I’ll love it.
What are you waiting on this week?

  2. I haven't heard of this series, but I think I'll be checking Seraphina out. I am really into high fantasy right now, and this sounds amazing.
