Waiting on Wednesday (102) ENDSINGER by Jay Kristoff

WOW new copy

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and is a great way to share upcoming books that you’re exciting about. Hop on over there and check out other WoW posts! This week I have another book I’m over the moon about. I don’t read a lot of series, simply because it’s not always easy to keep up with them. But this is one series I’ve adored since the beginning, and unfortunately, it’s coming to an end *weep*


Endsinger (The Lotus War #3) by Jay Kristoff. Release date: September 23 2014 (Thomas Dunne Books). Oh you guys, just look at this cover! That’s Buruu flying up there! And that saw thing, WTH? Yukiko looks dangerous and pissed off, and I think she’s about to kill something. And why are there snowflakes on this cover?? I am dying to read this, not only to solve the mystery behind these images, but I want to see how this epic story is going to end. Bring it on, Kristoff!

The flames of civil war sweep across the Shima Imperium. With their plans to renew the Kazumitsu dynasty foiled, the Lotus Guild unleash their deadliest creation—a mechanical goliath known as the Earthcrusher, intended to unite the shattered Empire under a yoke of fear. With the Tiger Clan and their puppet Daimyo Hiro in tow, the Guild marches toward a battle for absolute dominion over the Isles.

Yukiko and Buruu are forced to take leadership of the Kagé rebellion, gathering new allies and old friends in an effort to unite the country against the chi-mongers. But the ghosts of Buruu’s past stand between them and the army they need, and Kin’s betrayal has destroyed all trust among their allies. When a new foe joins the war tearing the Imperium apart, it will be all the pair can do to muster the strength to fight, let alone win.

The traitor Kin walks the halls of Guild power, his destiny only a bloody knife-stroke away. Hana and Yoshi struggle to find their place in a world now looking to them as heroes. Secret cabals within the Lotus Guild claw and struggle; one toward darkness, the other toward light. And as the earth splits asunder, as armies destroy each other for rule over an empire of lifeless ash and the final secret about blood lotus is revealed, the people of Shima will learn one last, horrifying truth.

There is nothing a mother won’t do to keep her children by her side.



Look how awesome all three covers look together…I’d love to know if you’re reading this series. Leave me your WoW links in the comments:-)

  1. Interesting. I thought this one got a pretty negative reaction when the first book came out, yet a lot of people are pretty excited about it. I gotta get on Goodreads and see why certain people didn’t like it and whether it would really apply to me.

    • Really? I haven’t seen those negative reviews. It is so beautifully written, although very sad, very violent and just a wee bit over the top LOL. Awesome characters too. I think you’d love these, Nathan.

  2. I really need to start this series, I have the first book on my shelf I just haven’t managed to get to it yet. Thanks for sharing.

    Here’s my WoW if you’re interested.
