Waiting on Wednesday (45) Crystal Storm

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming releases we're really excited about.

I would usually wait until there is more information, but I just couldn't. There is a cover and a synopsis and that's enough!

Crystal Storm (Falling Kingdoms, #5)Title: Crystal Storm
Author: Morgan Rhodes
Publisher: Razorbill
Release Date: December 13, 2016

An epic clash between gods and mortals threatens to tear Mytica apart . . . and prove that not even the purest of love stands a chance against the strongest of magic.

MAGNUS and CLEO are forced to test the strength of their love when Gaius returns to Mytica claiming he’s no longer the King of Blood but a changed man seeking redemption.

LUCIA, pregnant with the child of a Watcher, has escaped the clutches of the unhinged fire god. Her powers are dwindling as she goes forth to fulfill a prophecy that will keep her baby safe . . . but could mean her demise.

JONAS treks back to Mytica with a plan to overtake Amara, but fate takes hold when he runs into the beautiful Princess Lucia and joins her on her perilous journey.

AMARA has taken the Mytican throne, but with no way to unleash the water magic trapped within her stolen crystal, she’ll never be able to seize glory and get sweet revenge.

And what kind of darkness will descend—and who will be safe—after Prince Ashur reveals the dangerous price he paid to cheat death?

Okay. So we don't have a specific release date yet.  Or a page count.  -breathes- I need this book.  THIS COVER! THIS SYNOPSIS! I think that's Magnus on the cover because of the scar on his right cheek.  Omg -flails- Calm down, Christina. You can do this.  Nope. I can't.  I need it.  I can only hope it will be at ALA in June.

Edit: there is now an exact date. I have updated it.

What are you waiting on?
