Waiting on Wednesday #219

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine where you can spotlight an upcoming release that you're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm waiting on.....
 
The Wicked King by Holly Black 
Releases on: January 8th 2019

The enchanting and bloodthirsty sequel to the New York Times bestselling novel The Cruel Prince.

You must be strong enough to strike and strike and strike again without tiring.

The first lesson is to make yourself strong.

After the jaw-dropping revelation that Oak is the heir to Faerie, Jude must keep her younger brother safe. To do so, she has bound the wicked king, Cardan, to her, and made herself the power behind the throne. Navigating the constantly shifting political alliances of Faerie would be difficult enough if Cardan were easy to control. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her even as his fascination with her remains undiminished.

When it becomes all too clear that someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her own life and the lives of everyone she loves, Jude must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan to maintain control as a mortal in a Faerie world.

Thoughts:
SQUEEEEEE! *happy dances* Look at that cover!!!! It's so purdy and perfect and I. Must. Have. It!
Like many people, The Cruel Prince has been my favourite novel of 2018 so far (unexpectedly I might ad as strangely I've never been blown away by Holly Black's novels in the past) so it goes without saying I'm DYING for this novel to come out. I only wish we didn't have to wait until 2019 to get it!
  Are you excited about The Wicked King too?
And what are YOU waiting on this week?
