Waiting on Wednesday - The Bitter Kingdom

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine,  that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating or books that are in our TBR pile.  This week’s “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is

Summary (by Goodreads)

The epic conclusion to Rae Carson's Fire and Thorns trilogy. The seventeen-year-old sorcerer-queen will travel into the unknown realm of the enemy to win back her true love, save her country, and uncover the final secrets of her destiny.

Elisa is a fugitive in her own country. Her enemies have stolen the man she loves in order to lure her to the gate of darkness. As she and her daring companions take one last quest into unknown enemy territory to save Hector, Elisa will face hardships she's never imagined. And she will discover secrets about herself and her world that could change the course of history. She must rise up as champion-a champion to those who have hated her most.

The Bitter Kingdom is the final book in the Fire and Thorns trilogy.  I haven't yet started this one but what I like about it is that I have heard that fans of Tamora Pierce and George R.R. Martin will enjoy this series.  I'm a huge fan of the Game of Thrones series (surprisingly because I feel like a closet fantasy lover) so this one just got bumped up a few notches on my TBR list.
