Waiting on Wednesday: Dawn Study

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which shines a light on eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.

This week my pick is;

Dawn Study

Dawn Study by Maria V. Snyder

Publisher: Mira Books

Release Date: 31st January 2017


New York Times bestselling author Maria V. Snyder brings her Poison Study series to its exhilarating conclusion.

Despite the odds, Yelena and Valek have forged an irrevocable bond – and a family – that transcends borders. Now, when their two homelands stand on the brink of war, they must fight with magic and cunning to thwart an Ixian plot to invade Sitia.

Yelena seeks to break the hold of the insidious Theobroma that destroys a person’s resistance to magical persuasion. But the Cartel is determined to keep influential citizens and Sitian diplomats in thrall—and Yelena at bay. With every bounty hunter after her, Yelena is forced to make a dangerous deal.

With might and magic, Valek peels back the layers of betrayal surrounding the Commander. At its rotten core lies a powerful magician—and his latest discovery. The fate of all rests upon two unlikely weapons. One may turn the tide. The other could spell the end of everything.”

I am a massive fan of Maria V. Snyder’s Study series, and a few years ago when I discovered there was a sequel trilogy being written I was so excited. Both Shadow Study and Night Study have lived up to my high expectations so I have no doubt Dawn Study will as well, and I am beyond excited to find out how things end for Yelena and Valek.

So what does everyone think; is Dawn Study a must on anyone else’s to-read list or are there any other books that you can’t wait for to be released?

    1. Same here, I’ve loved all the covers of the Study series but this one is by far my favourite. This is the US cover though and I’ll be buying the UK edition so I’m waiting to see what that one looks like.
      If you’re interested in high fantasy I would highly recommend the Study series, and anything by Snyder actually. She’s an amazing author and her books are some of my all-time favourites!
      Thanks, and thanks for the link as well. I’ll definitely check out your WoW post! 😀


  1. A family! Do they have kids? That seems to be the only one that crosses my mind. 😛

    I really enjoyed this series (or what I’ve read of it… I think the first two books?). Hopefully the conclusion is as great as the beginning – Yelena is one of my favourite protagonists. ❤

    1. I’m not going to spoil anything but I think in this case the family thing refers to a lot of the friends they’ve made along the way, as well as Yelena’s actual family!
      It’s an amazing series, I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve re-read these books. In my opinion, even though I haven’t read it yet, the conclusion is definitely going to be as great as the beginning of this series! 🙂


    1. Oh I know that feeling all too well! There are plenty of books I’ve brought which have been pushed back and back in my to-read list. But Poison Study is amazing. It’s one of my all-time favourite series and there hasn’t been a book released that I haven’t loved! 😀
