Waiting on Wednesday #63: The Perilous Sea

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick for this week's WoW is...

The Perilous Sea by Sherry Thomas

Title: The Perilous Sea (The Elemental Trilogy #2)
Author: Sherry Thomas
Release date: September 16th 2014
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy

After spending the summer away from each other, Titus and Iolanthe (still disguised as Archer Fairfax) are eager to return to Eton College to resume their training to fight the Bane. Although no longer bound to Titus by a blood oath, Iolanthe is more committed than ever to fulfilling her destiny—especially with the agents of Atlantis quickly closing in.

Soon after arriving at school, though, Titus makes a shocking discovery, one that makes him question everything he previously believed about their mission. Faced with this devastating realization, Iolanthe is forced to come to terms with her new role, while Titus must choose between following his mother's prophecies—and forging a divergent path to an unknowable future.

This cover was revealed quite recently, and I totally fell in love with it! This cover is even more gorgeous than that of The Burning Sky, which is really saying something. The Burning Sky was one of my favourite books of 2013, so I'm positively dying to read this one.


  1. Great pick! I've got The Burning Sky on my wishlist. I fell in love with ST's adult historical romances and wanted to glom up her backlist :)
