So, I joined in with this… ONCE… and then completely forgot about the feature. That was before Christmas. Wow. I thought I’d join in again, because there’s a new book I’ve just found out about on Fangirlish that sounds awesome, as I’m a huge fan of the author! Here goes…
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini:
Love burns. Worlds collide. Magic reigns.
This world is trying to kill Lily Proctor. Her life-threatening allergies keep her from enjoying many of the experiences that other teenagers take for granted…which is why she is determined to enjoy her first (and perhaps only) high-school party. But Lily’s life never goes according to plan, and after a humiliating incident in front of half her graduating class Lily wishes she could just disappear.
Suddenly Lily is in a different Salem – one overrun with horrifying creatures and ruled by powerful women called Crucibles. Strongest and cruellest of all the Crucibles is Lillian . . . Lily’s identical other self in this alternate universe. This new version of her world is terrifyingly sensual, and Lily is soon overwhelmed by new experiences.
Lily realizes that what makes her weak at home is exactly what makes her extraordinary in New Salem. It also puts her life in danger. Thrown into a world she doesn’t understand, Lily is torn between responsibilities she can’t hope to shoulder alone, and a love she never expected.
But how can Lily be the saviour of this world when she is literally her own worst enemy?
Why I’m looking forward to it: Last year, I fell in love with the Starcrossed series, by Josephine Angelini! They were brilliant, and probably the best paranormal romances I’ve read- which is a pretty good achievement considering the fact that that’s not my favourite genre… I spotted this cover reveal on Fangirlish and didn’t realise the author was bringing a new title out. It sounds really brilliant. I’ll definitely be hunting down a copy in September when it’s released!
What book are you waiting for? (:
