Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The purpose of this weekly event is to spotlight soon-to-be-released books that you are so [im]patiently waiting for. It also gives other bloggers a chance to find and share books for To Be Read lists.My "Waiting on Wednesday" book of the moment would have to be The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa.
Author: Julie Kagawa
Publisher: Harlequin, paperback, 386 pages
Expected Publication: October 25, 2011
Goodreads Synopsis: Ash, former prince of the Winter Court, gave up everything. His title, his home, even his vow of loyalty. All for a girl… and all for nothing.
Unless he can earn a soul.
To cold, emotionless faery prince Ash, love was a weakness for mortals and fools. His own love had died a horrible death, killing any gentler feelings the Winter prince might have had. Or so he thought.
With the (unwelcome) company of his archrival, Summer Court prankster Puck, and the infuriating cait sith Grimalkin, Ash begins a journey he is bound to see through to its end— a quest to find a way to honor his solemn vow to stand by Meghan’s side.
To survive in the Iron realm, Ash must have a soul and a mortal body. But the tests he must face to earn these things are impossible. At least, no one has ever passed to tell the tale.
And then Ash learns something that changes everything. A truth that turns reality upside down, challenges his darkest beliefs and shows him that, sometimes, it takes more than courage to make the ultimate sacrifice.
Why I want/need this book: I have read the first three in the series, and I absolutely love and adore these books and the characters within. I'm so excited to see that the final book to this series is in Ash's point of view and that I am going to be inside his head to learn so much more about him as a person and what he has been through in the past. And of course I have to find out if he and Meghan end up together in the end! And if they do, how?
