Waiting on Wednesday #270

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

NOW I RISE (The Conquerer's Saga #2) BY KIERSTEN WHITE

Goodreads Description:

Lada Dracul has no allies. No throne. All she has is what she’s always had: herself. After failing to secure the Wallachian throne, Lada is out to punish anyone who dares to cross her blood-strewn path. Filled with a white-hot rage, she storms the countryside with her men, accompanied by her childhood friend Bogdan, terrorizing the land. But brute force isn’t getting Lada what she wants. And thinking of Mehmed brings little comfort to her thorny heart. There’s no time to wonder whether he still thinks about her, even loves her. She left him before he could leave her.

What Lada needs is her younger brother Radu’s subtlety and skill. But Mehmed has sent him to Constantinople—and it’s no diplomatic mission. Mehmed wants control of the city, and Radu has earned an unwanted place as a double-crossing spy behind enemy lines. Radu longs for his sister’s fierce confidence—but for the first time in his life, he rejects her unexpected plea for help. Torn between loyalties to faith, to the Ottomans, and to Mehmed, he knows he owes Lada nothing. If she dies, he could never forgive himself—but if he fails in Constantinople, will Mehmed ever forgive him?

As nations fall around them, the Dracul siblings must decide: what will they sacrifice to fulfill their destinies? Empires will topple, thrones will be won . . . and souls will be lost.

I am so, so excited about this one. Eeee. I liked book one oh so much. And I Darken was just amazing. And I'm just dying to read this sequel. Yet beyond nervous too. I'm unsure about the romance, hah, yet I don't want it ruined, lol. I'm nervous. And excited. And I think I will love this book a bunch. Just wishing for the chance to get an ARC of it and reading it early :D Eee. Wish it was June. My cover reveal post here.
What are you waiting for on this dark Wednesday?


  1. Impressive cover! This series sounds good!

  2. Yaaasss, this book! I'm going to ignore the weird romance and hope that this one will be a lot better than And I Darken, in terms of romance. The story (outside of the romance) is awesome, and this cover is amazing. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a wonderful week, Carina. =)

  3. I haven't read the first book yet, but I've heard good things. I hope you love this one! Great pick ^_^

  4. You know, I struggled reading the first book! I don't know what I expected from it, but I suppose I wanted more action? That's weird for me, because I'm normally fine with lots of character development and not a lot of action... I'll definitely give this sequel a try, though! Great pick, Carina!
