Waiting on Wednesday: Glittering Shadows (Dark Metropolis #2) by Jaclyn Dolamore

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting.  I've chosen another sequel this week.  This time to a book I got an ARC of right about this time of the year last year.  Unfortunately I haven't received the sequel as an ARC.  I'm very excited to read on and see what happens next. And while I love this cover,  I feel like it doesn't quite match the feel of the first one in the series, Dark Metropolis.  But enough about that, here is the blurb from Goodreads:
Bodies line the streets of Urobrun; a great pyre burns in Republic Square. The rebels grow anxious behind closed doors while Marlis watches as the politicians search for answers—and excuses—inside the Chancellery.

Thea, Freddy, Nan, and Sigi are caught in the crossfire, taking refuge with a vibrant, young revolutionary and a mysterious healer from Irminau. As the battle lines are drawn, a greater threat casts a dark shadow over the land. Magic might be lost—forever.

This action-packed sequel to Dark Metropolis weaves political intrigue, haunting magic, and heartbreaking romance into an unforgettable narrative. Dolamore's lyrical writing and masterfully crafted plot deliver a powerful conclusion.


Sounds like there will definitely be some resolving of the questions left at the end of the first one, especially since this is the conclusion to the book.

So, what are you waiting for this week?

  1. I'm so excited for this book! I loved Dark Metropolis and it feels like it's been forever since I read it. That's probably because I had an ARC and read it months before it was out. I'm not a fan of the cover change, but I guess that's being nitpicky. Great choice!

    1. It has been since this time last year I believe. In fact, I think I finished reading it on my flight to NYC to go to BEA last year. :-) I'm with you on the cover change. I like the new one, but don't like that it doesn't go with the first one. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Definitely a different cover to the first book. Though, I've not read Dark Metropolis yet, It's on my TBR. Nice choice but that cover threw me for a loop.
