"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
I've cheated a bit this week as I've choosen two, but I have a good reason. =)
Expected publication: April 23, 2013I've been waiting on this sequel since I finished the first book The Immortal Rules some 6 months ago. The cover for this one was just recently released so I choose it for my WoW. This is the new cover design for the series - yes that's right a new cover for The Immortal Rules too =(
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Allison Sekemoto has vowed to rescue her creator, Kanin, who is being held hostage and tortured by the psychotic vampire Sarren. The call of blood leads her back to the beginning—New Covington and the Fringe, and a vampire prince who wants her dead yet may become her wary ally.
Even as Allie faces shocking revelations and heartbreak like she’s never known, a new strain of the Red Lung virus that decimated humanity is rising to threaten human and vampire alike. - Goodreads
Expected publication: January 15th, 2013I'm cheating a bit putting Level 2 here because I've just recently got an ARC for it, so in a way I'm not really "waiting" on it any more, but since I haven't started to read it yet I wanted to feature it as my WoW this week as well I'm really excited about it!
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
In this gripping exploration of a futuristic afterlife, a teen discovers that death is just the beginning.
Since her untimely death the day before her eighteenth birthday, Felicia Ward has been trapped in Level 2, a stark white afterlife located between our world and the next. Along with her fellow drones, Felicia passes the endless hours reliving memories of her time on Earth and mourning what she’s lost—family, friends, and Neil, the boy she loved.
Then a girl in a neighbouring chamber is found dead, and nobody but Felicia recalls that she existed in the first place. When Julian—a dangerously charming guy Felicia knew in life—comes to offer Felicia a way out, Felicia learns the truth: If she joins the rebellion to overthrow the Morati, the angel guardians of Level 2, she can be with Neil again.
Suspended between Heaven and Earth, Felicia finds herself at the center of an age-old struggle between good and evil. As memories from her life come back to haunt her, and as the Morati hunt her down, Felicia will discover it’s not just her own redemption at stake… but the salvation of all mankind. - Goodreads
