Waiting on Wednesday #19 ~ Ice Kissed (Kanin Chronicles #2) & Crystal Kingdom (Kanin Chronicles #3) by Amanda Hocking

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine which spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.

This week I’m waiting on: 

Ice Kissed
(Kanin Chronicles #2)
Amanda Hocking

Expected publication: May 5th 2015 by St. Martin's Press

Bryn Aven has always longed to be a part of the Kanin world.

Though she has no social status because she’s a half-breed, she refuses to give up on her dream of serving the kingdom she loves. It’s a dream that brings her to a whole new realm . . . the glittering palace of the Skojare.

The Skojare people need protection from the same brutal rival who’s been threatening the Kanin, and, being half Skojare herself, it’s a chance for Bryn to learn more about her heritage. Her boss Ridley Dresden is overseeing her mission and wants to help. He’s always been her most trusted friend—but as their undeniable attraction heats up, he becomes a distraction she can’t afford.

Brynn is about to discover that the Skojare world is full of secrets, and as she’s drawn in deeper and deeper, she doesn’t know who to trust. As she gets closer to Ridley, she realizes she may not even be able to trust her own heart.


Crystal Kingdom
(Kanin Chronicles #3)
Amanda Hocking 

Expected publication: August 4th 2015 by St. Martin's Press

Bryn must decide: follow her head or her heart.

Thrown into a world of suspense and intrigue, Bryn has to fight to clear her name. But she's not alone. With help from the Trylle - including Finn Holmes - she's on a quest to discover the truth.

With her life and her world on the line, will Bryn be able to risk it all?

Even though I have yet to read Frostfire (Book 1) I am eager for these two books to be released so that I can read the entire trilogy in succession.

What are you waiting for?

  2. Sounds good. I haven't read anything like your picks in a while. Maybe it's time. =0)

  3. I am waiting for these to come out before I read the series too. Just because it is hard to not know what is going on with your favorite characters for months on in.
