Waiting on Wednesday ~ The Unfailing Light by Robin Bridges

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme
 hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine
where we spotlight books we are eagerly anticipating.


The Unfailing Light
by Robin Bridges
Series: The Katerina Trilogy #2
Publisher: Random House
Publication date: October 9, 2012
Genre: YA Historical/ Paranormal
Purchase: Barnes and Noble/Amazon/Book Depository 


Having had no choice but to use her power has a necromancer to save Russia from dark forces, Katerina Alexandrovna, Duchess of Oldenburg, now wants to forget that she ever used her special powers. She's about to set off to pursue her lifelong dream of attending medical school when she discovers that Russia's arch nemesis--who she thought she'd destroyed--is still alive. So on imperial orders, Katerina remains at her old finishing school. She'll be safe there, because the empress has cast a potent spell to protect it against the vampires and revenants who are bent on toppling the tsar and using Katerina for their own gains. But to Katerina's horror, the spell unleashes a vengeful ghost within the school, a ghost more dangerous than any creature trying to get in.

I loved the first novel in the Katerina trilogy, The Gathering Storm and you can see my review: here. First, I am fascinated by necromancers. (I know creepy right?) Katerina is such a fun, strong, fearless protagonist and I look forward to seeing how she handles the return of Russia's nemesis and a ghost! 


Isn't the cover gorgeous?
What book are you waiting for?

I still can't get over her absurdly tiny waist, but I'm definitely looking forward to this. I didn't love book one, but I definitely liked it and want some more drama! And definitely more of the hero. :-)

My WoW.

I still haven't read the first book, but I just read your review and I'm convinced! I'm definitely going to be on the look-out for that book.
I hope you enjoy the second book once it comes out.
BTW I agree with Christina, that girl's waist is tiny! :O She must be wearing a corset ?
Thanks for sharing, Kim! :)

I haven't read the Gathering Storm, but it does sound fascinating (necromancers!). I also love this cover, but I think I prefer the cover of The Gathering Storm!

The first book in the series was not a favorite, so I haven't decided if I will read this one. I am looking forward to seeing what you think of it. I hope that you love it!

Oh, fantastic choice! :o I've never seen this before, but I'm totally adding it to the to-read pile. Ever since Anita Blake I love necromancers, so I can't wait to see how it is!

I have the first one but I haven't had the chance to read it unfortunately. These books look so good, maybe I'll get it finished before this comes out.
