"Waiting on" Wednesday [14]

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

Hello there! Happy Philippine Independence Day!

It's a holiday here in the Philippines so I have time to get some rest and relaxation today. *sigh* That just sounds so good with the busy schedule I have these days. 

Anyway, here's my pick for this week's WoW post:

TITLE: Kinslayer (The Lotus War #2)
AUTHOR: Jay Kristoff
PUBLISHER: Thomas Dunne Books

The mad Shōgun Yoritomo has been assassinated by the Stormdancer Yukiko, and the threat of civil war looms over the Shima Imperium. The Lotus Guild conspires to renew the nation’s broken dynasty and crush the growing rebellion simultaneously – by endorsing a new Shōgun who desires nothing more than to see Yukiko dead.

Yukiko and the mighty thunder tiger Buruu have been cast in the role of heroes by the Kagé rebellion. But Yukiko herself is blinded by rage over her father’s death, and her ability to hear the thoughts of beasts is swelling beyond her power to control. Along with Buruu, Yukiko’s anchor is Kin, the rebel Guildsman who helped her escape from Yoritomo’s clutches. But Kin has his own secrets, and is haunted by visions of a future he’d rather die than see realized.

Kagé assassins lurk within the Shōgun’s palace, plotting to end the new dynasty before it begins. A waif from Kigen’s gutters begins a friendship that could undo the entire empire. A new enemy gathers its strength, readying to push the fracturing Shima imperium into a war it cannot hope to survive. And across raging oceans, amongst islands of black glass, Yukiko and Buruu will face foes no katana or talon can defeat.

The ghosts of a blood-stained past"

Stormdancer, the first book from The Lotus War series, is my all-time favorite of 2012 debuts. It had everything I was looking for in a fantasy novel. It was freakin' awesome! So I am eagerly awaiting Kinslayer's release. I can't wait to join in on Yukiko and Buruu's adventures. :)

What are your thoughts on this? And what book are you eagerly waiting for?
Happy reading!
