Waiting On Wednesday (29)


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. This is a once-a-week look at the book(s) I am anxiously awaiting release.

"The Descent" by Alma Katsu

This book is to be released January 7th, 2014. This is the third and final book in the Taker trilogy.

The final installment in the "mesmerizing" (Booklist, starred review) and addictive trilogy--find out who truly holds the key to Lanny's heart and whether she'll ever be reunited with her beloved in the gripping supernatural tale of magic, lust, and longing.

Lanore McIlvrae has been on the run from Adair for hundreds of years, dismayed by his mysterious powers and afraid of his temper. She betrayed Adair's trust and imprisoned him behind a stone wall to save Jonathan, the love of her life. When Adair was freed 200 years later, she was sure that he would find her and make her existence a living hell. But things turned out far different than she'd imagined.

Four years later, Lanore has tracked Adair to his mystical island home, where he has been living in self-imposed exile, to ask for a favor. She wants Adair to send her to the hereafter so she may beg the Queen of the Underworld to release Jonathan, whom she has been keeping as her consort. Will Lanore honor her promise to Adair to return? Or is her intention to reunite with Jonathan at any cost?

Of all the forces of the universe, the most mysterious, confounding, and humbling is the power of love. The epic story of love and loss, magic and destiny than began with The Taker and sparked a chase around the world in The Reckoning comes a surprising conclusion with The Descent.

Sad as it is to say, I have not began this series. I do, actually, own the first book The Taker. I actually bought the UK paperback version of it because the UK cover was absolutely gorgeous. I bought it on complete cover appeal but the synopsis was intriguing. I am anxiously awaiting the final book so I may collect the rest of the series and finally delve into Alma Katsu's fantasy world :)

What are you "Waiting On" this Wednesday?
