Waiting On Wednesday is a meme where you basically share an upcoming book that you’re excited to read. It’s hosted over at Breaking the Spine by Jill.
The book I am waiting on for this week is: In the Afterlight (The Darkest Minds #3) by Alexandra Bracken.
Please be mindful of spoilers if you haven’t read the first two books!
Ruby can't look back. Fractured by an unbearable loss, she and the kids who survived the government's attack on Los Angeles travel north to regroup. With them is a prisoner: Clancy Gray, son of the president, and one of the few people Ruby has encountered with abilities like hers. Only Ruby has any power over him, and just one slip could lead to Clancy wreaking havoc on their minds.
They are armed only with a volatile secret: proof of a government conspiracy to cover up the real cause of IANN, the disease that has killed most of America's children and left Ruby and others like her with powers the government will kill to keep contained. But internal strife may destroy their only chance to free the "rehabilitation camps" housing thousands of other Psi kids.
Meanwhile, reunited with Liam, the boy she would-and did-sacrifice everything for to keep alive, Ruby must face the painful repercussions of having tampered with his memories of her. She turns to Cole, his older brother, to provide the intense training she knows she will need to take down Gray and the government. But Cole has demons of his own, and one fatal mistake may be the spark that sets the world on fire.
So I may or may not have saved this book for my WoW post for today, so that when I posted about it, I wouldn’t have a very long wait. I got Never Fade as a gift from some of my book blogger buddies who went to ALA and managed to grab me an ARC. So, I have actually been waiting FOREVER for the final conclusion to a series that defines “heartbreaking” for me. I know Alexandra Bracken will mess with my feels even more in this book, but I can not wait to see how everything goes down (although I will truly miss all the characters in this book).
This book will be released September 16th, 2014.
What are YOU waiting on this week?
