Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event originally created and hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating. Jill has been MIA since August of 2016. Despite this, the meme lives on….Hope you come back Jill! Until then I will be joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can’t-Wait Wednesday.
Happy Wednesday y’all! This week I’m eagerly waiting on Seasons of the Storm by Elle Cosimano. First, can we all take a moment to adore this cover?! Look at all the little details and symbolism. I can’t wait to connect those to elements of Jack’s story. Speaking of Jack, instead of dying, according to the blurb, he chooses immortality as one of the seasons, Winter. He is destined to be killed by Spring every year, yet they fall in love and want to defy their fates.
Star-crossed lovers, immortality, seasonal magic….this book checks all the marks for my favorite fantasy tropes. I’m lucky enough to have received an advanced copy y’all, and I cannot wait to dive in!
Series: Seasons of the Storm #1
Published by HarperTEEN on 2020-06-23
Length: 480 pages
One cold, crisp night, Jack Sommers was faced with a choice—live forever according to the ancient, magical rules of Gaia, or die.
Jack chose to live, and in exchange, he became a Winter—an immortal physical embodiment of the season on Earth. Every year, he must hunt the Season who comes before him. Summer kills Spring. Autumn kills Summer. Winter kills Autumn. And Spring kills Winter.
Jack and Fleur, a Winter and a Spring, fall for each other against all odds. To be together, they’ll have to escape the cycle that’s been forcing them apart. But their creator won’t let them go without a fight.
