Upcoming Releases: September 2016


upcoming releases books september
September 11th, a dark day in the history of human kind. A day of remembering and looking forward to a better future. And almost the halfway mark of the first month in summer's aftermath. Perhaps a bit late to still be posting upcoming releases. But I can't hold out on all these wonderful books. As to why I am late? I spent every spare minute of the last four days reading EMPIRE of STORMS. I finished it about an hour ago and... Whoa. It was everything I'd hoped it would be and more. 700 pages also proved to be not enough at all. GIVE ME MORE. But september is also bringing that other book I have been going crazy about for months now. CROOKED KINGDOM is only two weeks away and even after just finishing the masterpiece that was TOG 5, I need Six Of Crows 2 in my life and I need it RIGHT NOW! What is your most anticipated release?

Katharine is a poisoner, one who can ingest the deadliest poisons without so much as a stomachache. Arsinoe, a naturalist, is said to have the ability to bloom the reddest rose and control the fiercest of lions. But becoming the Queen Crowned isn’t solely a matter of royal birth. Each sister has to fight for it. And it’s not just a game of win or lose…it’s life or death. The night the sisters turn sixteen, the battle begins. The last queen standing gets the crown. If only it was that simple. Katharine is unable to tolerate the weakest poison, and Arsinoe, no matter how hard she tries, can’t make even a weed grow.

But with alliances being formed, betrayals taking shape, and ruthless revenge haunting the queens’ every move, one thing is certain: the last queen standing might not be the strongest…but she may be the darkest.
