Waiting On Wednesday #119: Gathering Darkness, by Morgan Rhodes

This is a weekly event hosted by
It showcases future releases which
we book bloggers
are eagerly anticipating!!

Here's my choice for this week!

Gathering Darkness
(Falling Kingdoms #3)
December 9, 2014
Fantasy, Romance, Young Adult Fiction

Love, vengeance, and greed spark a deadly quest for magic in the third book of the Falling Kingdoms series. Prince Magnus has just witnessed torture, death, and miracles during the bloody confrontation that decimated the rebel forces. Now he must choose between family and justice as his father, the cruel King Gaius, sets out to conquer all of Mytica. All Gaius needs now are the Kindred--the four elemental crystals that give godlike powers to their owner. But the King of Blood is not the only one hunting for this ancient, storied magic. . . . THE KRAESHIANS join the hunt. Ashur and Amara, the royal siblings from the wealthy kingdom across the Silver Sea, charm and manipulate their way to the Kindred, proving to be more ruthless than perhaps even the King of Blood himself. THE REBELS forge ahead. Princess Cleo and vengeful Jonas lead them, slaying with sweetness, skill, and a secret that can control Lucia's overpowering magic--all so they can use the Kindred to win back their fallen kingdoms. THE WATCHERS follow Melenia out of the Sanctuary. They ally in the flesh with King Gaius, who vows to use Lucia's powers to unveil the Kindred.The only certainty in these dark times is that whoever finds the magic first will control the fate of Mytica...but fate can be fickle when magic is involved.

Why I'm waiting on this one!!

The plot summary above gave 
me goosebumps when I first read  it!!
This is incredibly wonderful 
fantasy of the highest kind, reminiscent
of Tolkien and Brooks!!
I have the first two books in the series,
which I must confess I haven't
read as yet....but I've already
started on my New Year's resolutions....
Well, this way, I'll have all three
to go to, one after the other,
with no waiting!
It's definitely something to
look forward to!!

What do you think of my
choice this week?
What incredibly wonderful book(s)
are you waiting on?
