“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted on Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s selections are:

Rage of the DragonRage of the Dragon by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman

Release Date: April 24, 2012

Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling authors Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman comes Rage of the Dragon, the action-packed third book in their Dragonships fantasy series.

Skylan Ivorson is the gods-chosen Chief of all Vindras clans. But the gods from whom the Vindrasi draw their earthdwelling power are besieged by a new generation of gods who are challenging them for the powers of creation. The only way to stop these brash interlopers lies within the Five Bones of the Vektia Dragon—the primal dragon forged during the creation of the world—which have been lost for generations.

With the Gods of the New Dawn amassing a vast army, Skylan finds allies in former enemies. Calling upon the ogres to fight their common foes, the Vindrasi soon find themselves in the middle of an even larger war. Skylan and his Vindrasi clan must sail the Sea of Tears into the heart of the Forbidden Empire of the Cyclops, to implement a cunning yet delicate plan that risks his life and leadership at every corner. But a new enemy lies deep in the sea, one who draws upon powers never harnessed by land dwellers.

Master world-builders Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman, who have entertained generations of fans with the Dragonlance series and the Death Gate Cycle, prove they’re at the top of their game.

Into the Dreaming (with bonus material)Into the Dreaming by Karen Marie Moning

Release Date: April 24, 2012

Synopsis:

This new edition of the novella contains over 100 pages of bonus material including:

• A deleted scene from Kiss of the Highlander
• A proposal for a never-published romance
• An alternate opening version of The Dark Highlander
• Sneak peek at art from the upcoming graphic novel Fever Moon

Between the Highlander and Fever worlds lies a place beyond imagining.
 
For the first time in hardcover, here is #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning’s novella Into the Dreaming, a tale of Highland fantasy, star-crossed lovers, and the timeless manipulation of the ancient, immortal Unseelie king. This is Moning at her romantic, funniest finest.
 
Free him from his ice-borne hell . . .
 
Stolen from his beloved home in the Highlands of Scotland, imprisoned in the Unseelie king’s dark, frosty kingdom, Aedan MacKinnon endured centuries of torture before becoming the icy, emotionless Vengeance, the dark king’s dispatcher of death and destruction in the mortal realm.
 
And in his century you both may dwell . . .
 
Aspiring romance novelist Jane Sillee has always believed that she was born in the wrong century, but she’s managed to make a decent enough life for herself—if only she could stop having those recurring dreams about a man too perfect to exist.
 
In the Dreaming you have loved him . . .
 
Haunted every night of her life by a devastatingly sexy Highlander who comes to her while she sleeps, Jane tries to write him out of her head and heart. As a child he protected her, as a woman he loves her.
 
Now in the Waking you must save him . . .
 
When an ancient tapestry bearing the likeness of her beloved Highlander arrives on her doorstep, Jane is whisked back in time to fifteenth-century Scotland, to the castle of Dun Haakon on the isle of Skye, where she is given one chance to save her dream lover . . . or lose him forever to the Unseelie king.
 
Caught in a deadly game between the light and dark courts of the Fae, Jane must find a way through the ice to the heart of her Highander. But will the love of one mortal woman be enough to defeat such ancient and ruthless immortal enemies?

That’s what we are waiting on this week!  What about you?  Hope you will leave me your wishes in the comments!

    Into The Dreaming sounds really good. I always hear good things about Moning but never actually read any of her novels. I probably should get on that because all of her books sound fantastic! Thanks for sharing! Happy reading!

    I haven’t read the dragonship series (or even heard of it) sounds like something I would enjoy. Into the Dreaming sounds good also.

    I better go hide because I haven’t read the Fever series, or anything by her for that matter. Lol you can just add it to the list of books to force me into reading since I own the first book in the Fever series.
