Waiting on Wednesday {16}

2.22.2012
"Waiting on Wednesday " is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Silver by Rhiannon Held
Expected publication: June 5th 2012 by Tor Books 


The Girl is Running. She's alone; a werewolf without a pack, a shape-changer who cannot change, an intruder in Roanoke's territory. It's Andrew Dare's job to catch her, expel her, or kill her. He's the enforcer, after all, in charge of security. But when he catches her at last, he finds someone he wants to protect, not kill. A tortured stranger who needs him...and who warns of a threat to all the packs of North America.

Anyone who knows me knows I love werewolves. This sounds very mysterious ;)






Chosen Ones by Tiffany Truitt
Expected publication: April 10th 2012 by Entangled Publishing, LLC 


What if you were mankind’s last chance at survival?

Sixteen-year-old Tess lives in a compound in what was once the Western United States, now decimated after a devastating fourth World War. But long before that, life as we knew it had been irrevocably changed, as women mysteriously lost the ability to bring forth life. Faced with the extinction of the human race, the government began the Council of Creators, meant to search out alternative methods of creating life. The resulting artificial human beings, or Chosen Ones, were extraordinarily beautiful, unbelievably strong, and unabashedly deadly.

Life is bleak, but uncomplicated for Tess as she follows the rigid rules of her dystopian society, until the day she begins work at Templeton, the training facility for newly created Chosen Ones. There, she meets James, a Chosen One whose odd love of music and reading rivals only her own. The attraction between the two is immediate in its intensity—and overwhelming in its danger.

But there is more to the goings-on at Templeton than Tess ever knew, and as the veil is lifted from her eyes, she uncovers a dark underground movement bent not on taking down the Chosen Ones, but the Council itself. Will Tess be able to stand up to those who would oppress her, even if it means giving up the only happiness in her life?

I don't think I even need to explain why I'm waiting for this one. It just sounds amazing. (Plus it's from Entangled. I have yet to come across a book from them I didn't like.)

Leave a link to your WoW and I'll be sure to stop by :)

  1. I got bored of werewolves for a bit, but Silver sounds like it could get me in the mood again. Plus I love the cover! :)

    I am so excited for Chosen Ones! I love Entangled, too, and can't wait to read it.

  4. I just came across Silver last week when I was looking through the Macmillan catalog. It sounds really awesome. I am going to be reading Chosen Ones in the next week or two.
