Waiting on Wednesday: The Unfailing Light by Robin Bridges

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly Meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It is an opportunity for us to show books we can't wait to get our hands on.

This week, my pick is:


The Unfailing Light by Robin Bridges
Katherina Trilogy #2
October 2012
Random House Children's Book

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.



What book are you waiting for this week?

  1. I had some problems with The Gathering Storm but I'm very interested to see how the author moves events forward in this sequel. Plus I'll admit that I'm kind of a sucker for the cover!

  17. Oh this reminds me that I need to read The Gathering Storm. lol I found a gorgeous copy awhile back at our used bookstore, but never got around to reading it. I really must though, because the whole period Russian thing meets necromancy just really appeals to me :) Thanks for visiting our WoW, Em! :)
