Darkness never dies.
Hunted across the True Sea, haunted by the lives she took on the Fold, Alina must try to make a life with Mal in an unfamiliar land, all while keeping her identity as the Sun Summoner a secret. But she can’t outrun her past or her destiny for long.
The Darkling has emerged from the Shadow Fold with a terrifying new power and a dangerous plan that will test the very boundaries of the natural world. With the help of a notorious privateer, Alina returns to the country she abandoned, determined to fight the forces gathering against Ravka. But as her power grows, Alina slips deeper into the Darkling’s game of forbidden magic, and farther away from Mal. Somehow, she will have to choose between her country, her power, and the love she always thought would guide her–or risk losing everything to the oncoming storm.
This is possibly one of my most anticipated books of 2013. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Shadow and Bone. It was beautiful, and conflicting, and creative, and lush, and romantic, and thrilling, and seductive. And the Darkling? And Mal? And that ending? Amazeballs. I’m super duper, undeniably, fangirly grabby-grabby-grabby hands for this one.

What if your whole world was a lie?
What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?
The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth’s #1 New York Times bestselling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent.
I seriously can’t wait for this book! I’m stalking the internet for any kind of news about this book. I need a title…I need more Four…more Tris…I NEED to know what the heck is going on outside Chicago. October, why are you so far away?
So… what are you looking forward to this Wednesday?
