 Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine! This week I'm eagerly awaiting the release of Shadow Study by Maria V. Snyder, which is a continuation of the Study series despite the publisher's weird notation of a new series called Soulfinder. This book will take place sometime after the events of Spy Glass.

Shadow Study by Maria V. Snyder
 Expected Pub Date: February 2015
Publisher: Mira

The Study series was one of the first book series that was recommended to me by one of my students after we chatted about Graceling by Kristin Cashore. When I started the Study Series, I immediately fell in love with the world and characters that Snyder created. I devoured each book and incessantly checked Snyder's website for any indication that we could revisit Yelena and her world. I was thrilled to find out that three more books in the Study series are in progress! I plan on rereading this series as well as the spinoff Glass series before picking this latest book up. 

New York Times bestselling author Maria V. Snyder wowed readers with Poison Study, the unforgettable story of poison taster Yelena. Now she's back with a new tale of intrigue.

Once, only her own life hung in the balance.

Oddly enough, when Yelena was a poison taster, her life was simpler. But she'd survived to become a vital part of the balance of power between rival countries Ixia and Sitia. Now she uses her magic to keep the peace in both lands and protect her relationship with Valek.

Suddenly, though, they are beset on all sides by those vying for power through politics and intrigue. Valek's job - and his life - are in danger. As Yelena tries to uncover the scope of these plots, she faces a new challenge: her magic is blocked. She must keep that a secret - or her enemies will discover just how vulnerable she really is - while searching for who or what is responsible for neutralizing her powers.

Yes, the days of tasting poisons were much simpler. And certainly not as dangerous
