Waiting on Wednesday. Shadow Rise

Wednesday, 18 October 2017


"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week on WoW is Shadow Rise by Audrey Grey. Once again (it seems like a tradition now) I still haven't read the first book, Shadow Fall, even though I've it. ­čÖł Anyway, although I've heard some blurb about a love triangle (which I can't stand since most times the main character's feeble heart annoys me to no end), I'm still excited for this series. I always enjoy a good dystopia and I've read wonderful things about this one. Hopefully, my expectations aren't too high. The book will be released on November 14th.

"Terrorist. Rebel. Traitor.

One rash decision during the Shadow Trials led to unspeakable horrors that left innocents dead, friends injured and hunted by the Empire, and Maia Graystone imprisoned in the Tower at the Archduchess’s mercy.

Unsure if Riser Thornbrook survived, Maia must find a way to battle the Empire from within its own walls and escape so she can fulfill the promise to her father and stop the asteroid. But when she breaks free and joins Nicolai's Rebel army, she discovers she’s been branded a traitor. With war between the Rebels and the Empire looming, old alliances shifting, and suspicion hanging over her head, she must fight in the Rebel Blood Courts—and win command—to regain their trust.

Only problem is, first she has defeat the reigning champion, someone she knows all too well. Will Maia’s emotions lead to her defeat, or will she rise up and claim her victory

  1. You've got me kind of scared with the whole love triangle comment but I hope you love this when you get to it...and that the triangle doesn't annoy you too much.

    1. I was also scared when I learned this series has a love triangle. I'm probably still scared since the synopsis seem so intriguing and I fear the love triangle will ruin my reading experience.

      Happy readings! ;)

  5. I don't mind a love triangle sometimes, depends on the why behind it I guess. But this sounds really good, and I will have to check out the first book too. Great pick.

    1. The reason why I can't stand love triangles is because it is an overused trope in YA fiction. And many times the MC's flickering emotions harm the plot. However, I'm still giving this series a chance because I love a good dystopia and this one has been receiving raving reviews.

      Thank you. I hope you enjoy it too. Happy readings! ;)

    1. If the rest didn't look so good, I probably wouldn't give this series a chance after learning about the love triangle. Love triangles just make me cringe!

      Thank you. Happy readings, Amy! ;)

  11. OMG, this sounds SO good!! I'm not too happy about the love triangle thing, but the plot does grab me! It reminds me of both Star Wars and "The Hunger Games"! WOWZA!! It should be AWESOME!! GREAT pick!! :) :)

    Thanks for sharing, and thanks for commenting on my "Can't Wait Wednesday" post!! <3 :)

    1. It also reminds me of The Hunger Games which is one of my favourite dystopias (three novels? Not enough). And, I think the main reason why I'm giving this series a chance, even though there is a love triangle, it is because of the similarities with The Hunger Games.

      Happy readings Maria!;)

  12. I haven't heard of this series, but it sounds interesting! It's been a while since I've read a dystopian! I've just come to expect love triangles now. They are usually pointless, but I just tend to go with it! :D

    1. When reading YA fiction, I always expect to come across a love triangle. As you said, they are usually pointless and also, in my situation, make me mad at the MC for not making up her/his mind. Happy readings! ;)
