Waiting on Wednesday {31}

Hey everyone and welcome to my weekly Waiting on Wednesday meme post! This is just a once a week deal where each Wednesday I post about one book I am looking forward to reading and then link it up to the host blog, Breaking the Spine, where I can be connected to over 200 other readers and bloggers who are looking for a new read! My friend Kim from kimberlyfayereads participates in this meme each week and it has always looked like a great time. Below you will find the book cover, synopsis, Goodreads link and my reasons for waiting on this read! Enjoy!

This week's WOW is... Earth God by Jon Messenger!

Title: Earth God (World Aflame #4)
Author: Jon Messenger
Genre: New Adult/Adventure/Fantasy
Release Date: May 25, 2015

ebook - earth god 4


The Fire Elemental has risen and its followers, the Fire Caste, have destroyed the planet. Humanity hangs on the cusp of extinction; their only hope now lies with the troubled Wind Warrior, Xander Sirocco.
Xander has absorbed the power of the Wind and Water Elementals but at great personal cost. Finding Sammy has been his anchor through the chaos around him, but now he finds himself wondering if saving her is enough.
Sammy remains a prisoner of the Fire Elemental, her mind trapped, as the dragon possesses her body. Her love for Xander keeps her going, but will her passion be enough to stop the Elemental from killing Xander once and for all?
Humanity's last hope rests in Xander finding the Earth Elemental. Claiming the power of the Earth is the last step before he can confront the dragon holding Sammy hostage. Unfortunately, he's not the only one who knows the location of the Earth Elemental.
It's a race against time between Xander and the dragon to claim the last of the Elemental power and bring an end to a war that's spanned millennia.

Earth God is the exciting conclusion to the bestselling and award-winning World Aflame series.

Why am I waiting?

Some of you may remember last summer when I was introduced to a new author with a big story to tell. After downloading Wind Warrior, I was hooked. I devoured the first three novels in the series in no time and I've been patiently waiting for this final installment every since. Jon Messenger very quickly became one of my new favorite authors. As any of you who read my blog regularly know, as a male reader, I like seeking out male authors. I haven't found many that have written book I've cared for, but Messenger is near the top of my list. His character development is amazing, his action is spot on, and the feels? Oh yeah. He can bring those too. Any fans of paranormal, elemental, or coming of age stories will absolutely love this series. It's an extremely bittersweet feeling to see this series come to a close! It's been a wild wide and I cannot wait to see how Messenger wraps this one up! What are you waiting for people? Add this one to your TBR ASAP! I'll be reviewing this one in the coming weeks so be on the lookout!

What are YOU waiting on this week?
