Waiting on Wednesday: Smoke in the Sun by Renee Ahdieh

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. Today we are waiting for Smoke in the Sun by Renee Ahdieh!

The awaited sequel to Flame in the Mist is here!

Publication date: May 1st, 2018
Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton

The highly anticipated sequel to Flame in the Mist - an addictive, sumptuous finale that will leave readers breathless from the bestselling author of The Wrath and the Dawn

After Okami is captured in the Jukai forest, Mariko has no choice - to rescue him, she must return to Inako and face the dangers that have been waiting for her in the Heian Castle. She tricks her brother, Kenshin, and betrothed, Raiden, into thinking she was being held by the Black Clan against her will, playing the part of the dutiful bride-to-be to infiltrate the emperor's ranks and uncover the truth behind the betrayal that almost left her dead.

With the wedding plans already underway, Mariko pretends to be consumed with her upcoming nuptials, all the while using her royal standing to peel back the layers of lies and deception surrounding the imperial court. But each secret she unfurls gives way to the next, ensnaring Mariko and Okami in a political scheme that threatens their honor, their love and very the safety of the empire.

First, I want to say that depending on the publisher this book will be released in May or June so don't be surprised if you see different release dates ;)

Second, you will have to excuse me for not reading the blurb and thus not talking about it but I really REALLY want to read the 1st book (which is on my TBR) and I don't want to spoil myself accidentally. Sorry pals, I hope you understand!

Third, anyway did someone read it? Did you like it? Are you excited for the sequel?

PS: Am I the only one who thinks the cover has nothing to do with the cover of the 1st book? You can't even see it's the same series... weird.

Are you excited about Smoke in the Sun?
