Waiting on Wednesday 07/09/14

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that lets us feature upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

Mogsy’s Pick:

Blightborn by Chuck Wendig: July 29, 2014 (Skyscape)

I recently made the decision to be a bit pickier with my Young Adult reads (so YA Weekends will still be a regular feature, but maybe not every week) but there are titles, series, or authors that I’ll pick up no matter what. Chuck Wendig is a name that falls in that list. I really enjoyed the first book of The Heartland Trilogy last year, so no surprise that I’m craving the sequel, out at the end of the month!

 

Blightborn

“Cael McAvoy is on the run. He’s heading toward the Empyrean to rescue his sister, Merelda, and to find Gwennie before she’s lost to Cael forever. With his pals, Lane and Rigo, Cael journeys across the Heartland to catch a ride into the sky. But with Boyland and others after them, Cael and his friends won’t make it through unchanged.Gwennie’s living the life of a Lottery winner, but it’s not what she expected. Separated from her family, Gwennie makes a bold move—one that catches the attention of the Empyrean and changes the course of an Empyrean man’s life.

The crew from Boxelder aren’t the only folks willing to sacrifice everything to see the Empyrean fall. The question is: Can the others be trusted?

They’d all better hurry. Because the Empyrean has plans that could ensure that the Heartland never fights back again.

Chuck Wendig’s riveting sequel to Under the Empyrean Sky plunges readers into an unsettling world of inequality and destruction, and fleshes out a cast of ragtag characters all fighting for survival and, ultimately, change.”

  1. GAH. Wendig is another author I have yet to read. I have at least the first couple of books in his Miriam Black series. Looks like I need to add this one too 😉
