Waiting on Wednesday (41)



For those of you who don't know, Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where book bloggers devote a post to an upcoming book release they are particularly looking forward to reading.



THIS WEEK'S PICK:
EMBERS AND ECHOES BY KARSTEN KNIGHT
Ashline Wilde is about to discover that when you’re the reincarnation of a Polynesian volcano goddess, “new beginnings” are just a myth. 

Leaving the fiery ruins of her sophomore year behind her, Ash travels to the sizzling beaches of Miami, hot on the trail of the little sister she’s only seen in visions. But her happy family reunion isn’t all palm trees and paradise. A cult of evil gods-on-earth, known as the Four Seasons, has kidnapped her sister to use in its terrifying new religion. Soon, the streets of Miami erupt in chaos and violence…and Ash gets caught right in the tropical crossfire 

Ash isn’t without help, however. Unexpected romance arrives in the form of Wes, an Aztec god of night with his own vendetta against the Four Seasons. As memories of Ash’s previous life begin to flicker into her dreams, the boundaries between ally and enemy, life and death, and love and hate all bleed together. And when a mysterious trickster from her past reappears to derail her new quest, Ash must choose between the echoes of a once-forgotten yesterday and the embers of an uncertain future. 

Because when old flames return from the dead, even a volcano goddess can get burned.




I absolutely adored Wildefire when I read it last year. And that ending was pretty much the textbook definition of a cliffhanger. The book wasn't even out yet and I already wanted to read the sequel, that's how much I've been pining for this book. Basically, there isn't much I wouldn't do in order to get my hands on this book. I just can't wait to find out what happens next to Ashline.

Ember and Echoes by Karsten Knight will be published August 28, 2012 by Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing.

  4. Ooooh I didn't know Wildefire had a sequel! I haven't read it yet, but it's on my TBR list! I guess I should read it before this one comes out! Great choice :)

    Here's my WoW!

  5. I never got a chance to read Wildfire, but the fact that you say it has a major cliffhanger I might just wait. I love reading books back to back (I tend to forget details if I don't).
