Waiting on Wednesday: A Poison Dark and Drowning by Jessica Cluess

My TBR list is always growing and I thought it would be fun to share my anticipation for those books with all of you. This is not my own original meme; it belongs to Breaking the Spine. It specifically spotlights upcoming releases. As it implies in the title, I'll be posting this meme on Wednesdays. Please feel free to comment and let me know what books you guys are waiting on as well!



Publisher: Random House BFYR
Pub. Date: September 19th, 2017
Pre-Order it: Amazon | B&N | Book Depository 
The magicians want her to lead.The sorcerers want her to lie.The demons want her blood.Henrietta wants to save the one she loves.But will his dark magic be her undoing?

In this seductive and explosive second book in the Kingdom on Fire series, Jessica Cluess delivers her signature mix of magic, passion, and teen warriors fighting for survival. Hand to fans of Victoria Aveyard, Sarah J. Maas, and Kiersten White.

Henrietta doesn't need a prophecy to know that she's in danger. She came to London to be named the chosen one, the first female sorcerer in centuries, the one who would defeat the Ancients. Instead, she discovered a city ruled by secrets. And the biggest secret of all: Henrietta is not the chosen one.

Still, she must play the role in order to keep herself and Rook, her best friend and childhood love, safe. But can she truly save him? The poison in Rook's system is transforming him into something monstrous as he begins to master dark powers of his own. So when Henrietta finds a clue to the Ancients past that could turn the tide of the war, she persuades Blackwood, the mysterious Earl of Sorrow-Fell, to travel up the coast to seek out strange new weapons. And Magnus, the brave, reckless flirt who wants to win back her favor, is assigned to their mission. Together, they will face monsters, meet powerful new allies, and uncover the most devastating weapon of all: the truth.


I loved A Shadow Bright and Burning, it had everything I love in fantasy books. Magic, swoony boys, amazing setting, and great writing. So you can imagine how much I want A Poison Dark and Drowning?


Plus, I need to know what happens to my precious babies Rook and Blackwood!


Also, I read a bit of the display copy that they had at ALAMW and it's sooo good! I need this book NOW!

What about you guys? Have you read A Shadow Bright and Burning? Are you excited for A Poison Dark and Drowning? Are they on your TBR? Let me know ^_^

  2. A Shadow Bright and Burning was one I was so excited for last year....... and I just never got to it. I've heard some pretty low ratings though and maybe that kind of put me off. Knowing that you loved it though makes me even more determined to get to it sometime soon.

    Great pick!

    1. Low ratings can do that. That's why generally I avoid all reviews until after I've read a book because I want to form my own opinion on it. I hope you get to it soon and that you love it as much as I do.

  16. I am very interested in reading this book! I liked but didn't totally love book one - there were some aspects that I wanted more of, and some I wanted less of. I'm really pulling for a Blackwood romance. ;) I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a lovely week, Brittany. =)
