Waiting on Wednesday: Queen of Shadows

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.
It's a weekly meme about upcoming books we're excited about!

Queen of Shadows
by Sarah J. Maas
(Throne of Glass: #4)
Publication Date: September 1, 2015

From Goodreads:

Everyone Celaena Sardothien loves has been taken from her. But she's at last returned to the empire - for vengeance, to rescue her once-glorious kingdom, and to confront the shadows of her past. . . .

She will fight for her cousin, a warrior prepared to die just to see her again. She will fight for her friend, a young man trapped in an unspeakable prison. And she will fight for her people, enslaved to a brutal king and awaiting their lost queen's triumphant return.

Why I'm Excited

- After the build-up in the third book, I am extremely curious to see what happens next.
- I hate Celaena as a protagonist, but Sarah J. Maas has built a rich, epic fantasy world that I love exploring.
- Maybe I'll like Celaena in this one!


  1. I've really got to start this series! I'm so far behind! Great pick this week! New follower by the way!

    Sandy @ Somewhere Only We Know

    1. While I wasn't the biggest fan of the first book, Sandy, I'm a bit alone in my opinion on it and even I have to definitely say that the next two books - plus the novella collection - totally make the first book worth it. I don't think I'll ever be a big fan of Celaena, but the world building is amazing and there's so many awesome characters introduced in Book #3.

      Thanks for following! :)
