Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blog post by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights releases we're eagerly awaiting.
“I plead the blood.”
Those were the last words seventeen-year-old golden boy quarterback Clay Tate heard rattling from his dad's throat when he discovered him dying on the barn floor of the Neely Cattle Ranch, clutching a crucifix to his chest.
Now, on the first anniversary of the Midland, Oklahoma slaughter, the whole town's looking at Clay like he might be next to go over the edge. Clay wants to forget the past, but the sons and daughters of the Preservation Society—a group of prominent farmers his dad accused of devil worship—won't leave him alone. Including Ali, his longtime crush, who suddenly wants to reignite their romance after a year of silence, and hated rival Tyler Neely, who’s behaving like they’re old friends.
Even as Clay tries to reassure himself, creepy glances turn to sinister stares and strange coincidences build to gruesome rituals—but when he can never prove that any of it happened, Clay worries he might be following his dad down the path to insanity...or that something far more terrifying lies in wait around the corner.
I enjoyed Kim's first book and am interested in reading more from her! Plus I love a good creepy read!
TITLE: The Last Harvest
AUTHOR: Kim Liggett
PUBLISHER: Tor Teen
GENRE: Horror YA
RELEASE DATE: January 10, 2017
Some say I’m worse than death. But I’m also a normal girl. I just happen to be cursed with the ability to drive a mind to insanity simply with my touch.
I can’t control my curse, which is why I’ve spent most of my life in a cage. Nothing survives my touch either, at least as far as I know.
Most call me a monster. Sometimes I wonder if maybe they’re right.
So when Caspian, a cocky, demanding—and I’ll admit, extremely good looking—jinni shows up at my cage, along with a few immortals, and demands I go with him so he can exchange my life for his sister’s, I agree, hoping I can do something good for once. I just wish Caspian didn’t despise me so much.
I haven't read this author before but this story intrigues me! Definitely want to check it out!!
