Waiting on Wednesday: A Poison Dark and Drowning by Jessica Cluess

This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

A Poison Dark and Drowning (Kingdom on Fire, #2)

     Devastatingly magical and monstrously romantic. I can't decide if this book stole my heart or ripped it out of my chest. Stephanie Garber, author of Caraval
     The magicians want her to lead.
     The sorcerers want her to lie.
     The demons want her blood.
     Henrietta wants to save the one she loves.
     But will his dark magic be her undoing?
     In this seductive and explosive second book in the Kingdom on Fire series, Jessica Cluess delivers her signature mix of magic, passion, and teen warriors fighting for survival. Hand to fans of Victoria Aveyard, Sarah J. Maas, and Kiersten White.
     Henrietta doesn't need a prophecy to know that she's in danger. She came to London to be named the chosen one, the first female sorcerer in centuries, the one who would defeat the Ancients. Instead, she discovered a city ruled by secrets. And the biggest secret of all: Henrietta is not the chosen one.
     Still, she must play the role in order to keep herself and Rook, her best friend and childhood love, safe. But can she truly save him? The poison in Rook's system is transforming him into something monstrous as he begins to master dark powers of his own. So when Henrietta finds a clue to the Ancients past that could turn the tide of the war, she persuades Blackwood, the mysterious Earl of Sorrow-Fell, to travel up the coast to seek out strange new weapons. And Magnus, the brave, reckless flirt who wants to win back her favor, is assigned to their mission. Together, they will face monsters, meet powerful new allies, and uncover the most devastating weapon of all: the truth.

Why I'm Waiting: Did y'all read the first one?! Well that's why I'm waiting on it! lol I really loved Henrietta and I really want to see what they're up to next. Also, with all the bombs that were dropped at the end of the last one, I really want to see what else they will be doing after all of this has happened. 

What are you waiting on this week?
