Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it spotlights upcoming books that we as readers are anxiously awaiting...

Shadow Heir by Richelle Mead
Genre:  Urban Fantasy
Dark Swan Series, Book 4
Expected publication:  December 27, 2011
Amazon | Book DepositoryGoodreads

Description (taken from Richelle Mead's website):
Shaman-for-hire Eugenie Markham strives to keep the mortal realm safe from trespassing entities. But as the Thorn Land's prophecy-haunted queen, there's no refuge for her and her soon-to-be-born-children when a mysterious blight begins to devastate the Otherworld...

The spell-driven source of the blight isn't the only challenge to Eugenie's instincts. Fairy king Dorian is sacrificing everything to help, but Eugenie can't trust the synergy drawing them back together. The uneasy truce between her and her shape shifter ex-lover Kiyo is endangered by secrets he can't--or won't--reveal. And as a formidable force rises to also threaten the human world, Eugenie must use her own cursed fate as a weapon--and risk the ultimate sacrifice...

The final book in the Dark Swan Series.  Did I mention this is my favorite book series right now?  Did I mention Richelle Mead is one of my favorite authors?  If you haven't read any of her books, I suggest you read them (whether it be this series or her young adult Vampire Academy series).  Also, I've been rooting for Dorian all throughout this series; I never liked Kiyo.

This will definitely be a belated Christmas present from me to myself when it comes out...


  1. I loved the first book in this series & have the next two sitting on my Kindle. I'm sure they won't disappoint. Richelle Mead is a genius :) Have you read her series about Georgina the succubus? It is really fabulous. Great pick!

  2. I really have to start this series I loved her VA series! Awesome pick!

  3. Okay so I need to read this series, like Giselle above I loved the VA series!! Question: which series do you prefer, VA or the Dark Swan series? Would love to know!!!

    ARGHH loving your blog!!! Following now:DDD


  4. SUCH a great cover!

    I'm hosting an exclusive Cover reveal for TOUHCING THE SURFACE, by Kim Sabatini, a 2012 release from SimonPulse! Will you come by and comment your thoughts on it?!

  5. I prefer the Dark Swan series over the Vampire Academy series. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love the Vampire Academy and new Bloodlines series, but I love the Dark Swan series more.

    And I have not read the Georgina Kincaid series. I have the first book but haven't started it.

  6. Love Richelle Mead! I like the cover! The book sounds pretty good! Thank you for sharing such an awesome book! Great choice!
