Waiting on Wednesday (147)

is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine that 
showcases upcoming releases people are very much anticipating.

There's something about the way this author writes (which is fantastically) and how she creates characters (which is wonderfully) that I just find to be really compelling. I may not love her books, but they're certainly good books, and they feature stories that are hard to resist. And because of all that, I am very much looking forward to this character-fueled, adventure-run sequel.

Four months have passed since the shadow stone fell into Kell’s possession. Four months since his path crossed with Delilah Bard. Four months since Rhy was wounded and the Dane twins fell, and the stone was cast with Holland’s dying body through the rift, and into Black London.

In many ways, things have almost returned to normal, though Rhy is more sober, and Kell is now plagued by his guilt. Restless, and having given up smuggling, Kell is visited by dreams of ominous magical events, waking only to think of Lila, who disappeared from the docks like she always meant to do. As Red London finalizes preparations for the Element Games—an extravagant international competition of magic, meant to entertain and keep healthy the ties between neighboring countries—a certain pirate ship draws closer, carrying old friends back into port.

But while Red London is caught up in the pageantry and thrills of the Games, another London is coming back to life, and those who were thought to be forever gone have returned. After all, a shadow that was gone in the night reappears in the morning, and so it seems Black London has risen again—meaning that another London must fall.

Is your pick this week a sequel?
