Waiting on Wednesday – The Thorn of Emberlain
Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to let us share our excitement for books coming out soon.
Goodreads has a date of September 17, 2015, but I am not sure how accurate that is. I have seen though that this is expected to hit the shelves before the year is up. Whenever it is, it is way on the top of my MUST READ list!! I can not wait!

Expected publication: Fall 2015?
Publisher: Del Rey in the US, Gollancz in the UK

A new chapter for Locke and Jean and finally the war that has been brewing in the Kingdom of the Marrows flares up and threatens to capture all in its flames.
