I don’t always have much going on during Wednesday’s around here so I thought I’d participate in one of the Wednesday meme’s now and then. I don’t know if I’ll stick with this every week, but it may be something I participate in once in a while, we’ll see how things go. 🙂
Can’t-Wait Wednesday, aka Waiting on Wednesday, is a weekly meme originating from Jill at Breaking the Spine and now hosted by Wishful Endings. If you’re interested in participating, stop by Wishful Endings to link up your posts.
Thanks to her geomantic magic, Ingrid has successfully eluded Ambassador Blum, the power-hungry kitsune who seeks to achieve world domination for the United Pacific. But using her abilities has taken its toll: Ingrid’s body has been left severely weakened, and she must remain on the run with her friends Cy and Fenris.
Hoping to learn more about her magical roots and the strength her bloodline carries, Ingrid makes her way across the Pacific to Hawaii, home to the ancient volcano goddess Madam Pele. What she discovers in this paradise is not at all what she expects—and perhaps exactly what she needs.
But Ambassador Blum comes from the same world of old magic and mythic power. And if Ingrid cannot defeat her once and for all, she knows Blum will use that power to take the lives of everyone she holds dear before escalating a war that will rip the world to pieces.
I’m a huge fan of this series and I’m really looking forward to the conclusion. The first two were fast paced and such fun rides. It’s an interesting alt-history / steampunk / geomancy world Beth Cato has created here. There are so many plot threads hanging from the last book, it will be interesting to see how everything gets tied up here at the end. Roar of Sky will be published October 23rd from Harper Voyager.
