Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming books that we are eagerly anticipating.
Here's my pick:
Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi
Expected Publication: 28th January 2014
The earth-shattering conclusion to Veronica Rossi's "masterpiece" Under the Never Sky trilogy and sequel to the New York Timesbestselling Through the Ever Night (Examiner.com).
Their love and their leadership have been tested. Now it's time for Perry and Aria to unite the Dwellers and the Outsiders in one last desperate attempt to bring balance to their world.
The race to the Still Blue has reached a stalemate. Aria and Perry are determined to find this last safe-haven from the Aether storms before Sable and Hess do-and they are just as determined to stay together.
Meanwhile, time is running out to rescue Cinder, who was abducted by Hess and Sable for his unique abilities. And when Roar returns to camp, he is so furious with Perry that he won't even look at him, and Perry begins to feel like they have already lost.
Out of options, Perry and Aria assemble a team to mount an impossible rescue mission-because Cinder isn't just the key to unlocking the Still Blue and their only hope for survival, he's also their friend. And in a dying world, the bonds between people are what matter most.
UtNS and TtEN were probably one of my favorite books I've read in 2013. I love everything seriously. Perry, Aria, Cinder, especially Roar! Who doesn't love Roar?! (Psst, I'm actually secretly hoping Veronica would continue the books from Roar's point of view. How awesome would that be?)
