"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's "Waiting On" Wednesday selection is:
By Meg Cabot
Publish Date May 2012 by Scholastic Inc.
Escape from the realm of the dead is impossible when someone there wants you back. Seventeen-year-old Pierce Oliviera isn't dead. Not this time. But she is being held against her will in the dim, twilit world between heaven and hell, where the spirits of the deceased wait before embarking upon their final journey. Her captor, John Hayden, claims it's for her own safety. Because not all the dearly departed are dear. Some are so unhappy with where they ended up after leaving the Underworld, they've come back as Furies, intent on vengeance...on the one who sent them there and on the one whom he loves. But while Pierce might be safe from the Furies in the Underworld, far worse dangers could be lurking for her there...and they might have more to do with its ruler than with his enemies. And unless Pierce is careful, this time there'll be no escape.
First of all, is that not a beautiful cover? I was so excited when I saw it on Goodreads and on several blogs' Cover Reveals. Abandon was my first ever Meg Cabot book, and I really did enjoy reading it. The cliffhanger at the end of the novel really makes me eager for Underworld to be released as soon as possible. May cannot get here soon enough, and I hope that the sequel is just as good as its predecessor.
What are you waiting on this Wednesday? ^_^
