Waiting on Wednesday - The Darkest Magic by Morgan Rhodes

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

by Morgan Rhodes
Publisher: Razorbill
Format: Hardcover
Release Date: June 28th, 2016
Pre-order: [Amazon] [Chapters/Indigo]
In the second installment of New York Times bestselling author Morgan Rhodes's highly acclaimed Falling Kingdoms spin-off series, danger looms and the mystery deepens as two warring evils vie for possession of one elusive, powerful book.

Modern-day Toronto: Sisters Crystal and Becca Hatcher are reunited after reclaiming the Bronze Codex and narrowly escaping death. They have no one to trust but each other, and the only thing keeping them safe is the book that sent Becca's spirit to Ancient Mytica--the same book that their enemies would kill them for.

Ancient Mytica: Maddox grapples to keep his newly discovered powers under control, while the ruthless goddess Valoria hunts him down.

Modern-day Toronto: Farrell embraces his dark side as he unwittingly falls further under the spell of Markus, the mastermind leader of the nefarious Hawkspear Society, who will stop at nothing to find Crys and Becca--and the remarkable book in their possession.

New York Times bestselling author Morgan Rhodes takes readers into exhilarating new high-fantasy territory with volume two of the Book of Spirits and Thieves series, an epic contemporary saga perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander.

Why I'm Anticipating This Title:
The first title in the series, A Book of Spirits and Thieves, was absolutely thrilling! When the announcement for ABOSAT was made, I was excited to learn that it would begin in Toronto (where I was born, raised, and still continue to live). Morgan Rhodes is a phenomenal author, and with the upcoming release of book two, The Darkest Magic, I can't wait to see what adventures my favourite characters will take me. Have you read A Book of Spirits and Thieves?

Throwback to the ABOSAT launch in Toronto!

Happy Reading,


  1. I have yet to read a book by Morgan Rhodes, but I think I really should since there are a lot of praises for her novels. I actually just recently bought Falling Kingdoms and I can't wait to read it!

  3. I actually can't wait to start this series, and finish her other series. That cover is the business!
    My WoW

  4. I saw this one this week too. Although I haven't read The Fallen Kingdoms series, I did read A Book of Spirits and Thieves and loved it so I can't wait to get my hands on this one too.

  5. Is this a spin off series of her Falling Kindoms series? If so, I still need to start the original. Great pick! My WOW

      Yes, it is =D

  6. I'm not sure if my orginal comment went through... Is this a spin off of The Fallen Kingdoms? I still haven't read that one so I feel like I should wait on this series. My WOW

  7. Oh my goodness, this sounds like a great book. Now it is added to my wishlist :) Great recommendation!

  8. I read Falling Kingdoms a year and a half ago and haven't picked the series up again for some reason! It was such a good book but I let things slip through my fingers. Now I have another book to add to the pile, great choice! Awesome blog, btw! -new follower

  9. This cover is so great! My favorite of the series for sure. You know, I've not read a single book by this author (under any of her various pen names)! I love fantasy and I've heard great things about this series, so I want to change that. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a lovely week, Wendy. :)
