Waiting on Wednesday: Oath Bound, by Rachel Vincent

Waiting on Wednesday is aweekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine to highlight upcoming releases that we're excited about.

This week's pick is the final book in an adult trilogy:

Release date: April 23, 2013
Publisher: Mira
Format: Paperback, 400 pages

Goodreads description:
The Tower Syndicate will fall...

The secret daughter of the head of an infamous Skilled crime family, Sera Brandt has hidden her past, her potential and especially her powers. But when a tragedy strikes her other family, Sera needs justice. And the only way to get it is to reveal her heritage– including a rare Skill– and take the reins of the Tower Syndicate from her cunning and malicious aunt.

If he can figure out how...

Kristopher Daniels might have the answer. He's fought the syndicate to protect his sisters, but he'd never realized just how close to the new heir he needed to get....

And if they can survive.

Neither is used to trusting. But there's something between them that can't be ignored. And so Sera is on the run with a man she can't figure out, a target on her back and the new knowledge of just how powerful she really is....

I am both desperately pining for and dreading this book. I finished Shadow Bound a week ago and I loved it so, so much! The world Rachel Vincent created in this series is one of my favorite book worlds (even though it's so dark and ruthless) and I am not ready to say goodbye to it, or the characters! On the other hands, I am so curious to see how and if the Tower Syndicate (and Julia - I hate that bitch) will fall! Also, I really like that Kris apparently gets a voice in this book because he's always sort of been around but in a very peripheral way, so naturally I'm want to know more about him. I just hope Kori will make an appearance too because I love her, and I'm curious about Sera as well!
