Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine where we readers salivate over the books we wish were on our bookshelves yesterday.
This week’s victim: The Burning White by Brent Weeks
Publication Date: Fall 2018 by Orbit Books
Stripped of both magical and political power, the people he once ruled told he’s dead, and now imprisoned in his own magical dungeon, former Emperor Gavin Guile has no prospect of escape. But the world faces a calamity greater than the Seven Satrapies has ever seen… and only he can save it.
As the armies of the White King defeat the Chromeria and old gods are born anew, the fate of worlds will come down to one question: Who is the Lightbringer?
I absolutely love The Lightbringer Series. It’s probably one of my favorite book series of all time. So I’m sure it’s no surprise that I’m absolutely jazzed for the final installment, especially because while I still loved The Blood Mirror, it felt more like a Part One of the end, with the ending feeling a little lackluster to me (especially compared to the ending of The Broken Eye, which floored me to the point of being stuck frozen in my chair for ten minutes after finishing the book). So I’ve been particularly eager for the next book, which finally has a title (I can’t wait for the cover reveal), to experience the epic conclusion of such a fantastic series.
