Waiting on Wednesday 7/20: Cold Fire



“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week I chose Cold Fire by Kate Elliott. I have the first in the series, Cold Magic, on my Kindle. Given the steam bath that we have for weather in the upper Midwest, it sounds like the perfect book to help cool things down, so maybe I’ll read it soon. The world of the Spiritwalker series is reminiscent of the “His Dark Materials” series, which I really enjoyed–at least the first two books. I haven’t read The Amber Spyglass yet because I’ve heard that the ending is not-so-happy, and I’m worried it would ruin my wonderful experience with the first two books.

Expected publication: September 26th 2011 by Orbit

Cat and her cousin are key players in a drama of dragons and politics. Everyone wants something from them – including the warlord who’s conquering all Europa and the Cold Mages who dare defy him. But the Master of the Wild Hunt is most dangerous of all. He will command Cat’s loyalty using what she holds most dear.

In a world where science and magic are at war, one girl must save those she loves, or lose everything.

What about you? What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
