Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blog post by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights releases we're eagerly awaiting.
A Torch Against the Night takes readers into the heart of the Empire as Laia and Elias fight their way north to liberate Laia’s brother from the horrors of Kauf Prison. Hunted by Empire soldiers, manipulated by the Commandant, and haunted by their pasts, Laia and Elias must outfox their enemies and confront the treacherousness of their own hearts.

In the city of Serra, Helene Aquilla finds herself bound to the will of the Empire’s twisted new leader, Marcus. When her loyalty is questioned, Helene finds herself taking on a mission to prove herself—a mission that might destroy her, instead.

It's in my BEA pile and I am dying to read it! But I'm trying to get to a few other priority books first and it's driving me bonkers!! I now wish I could speed well as being able to go without sleep and still be a functional human being! LOL!

AUTHOR: Sabaa Tahir

RELEASE DATE: August 30, 2016

A stunning, terrifying novel about a house the color of blood and the two sisters who are trapped there, by The Dead House author Dawn Kurtagich
When Silla and Nori arrive at their aunt's home, it's immediately clear that the "blood manor" is cursed. The creaking of the house and the stillness of the woods surrounding them would be enough of a sign, but there are secrets too--the questions that Silla can't ignore: Who is the beautiful boy that's appeared from the woods? Who is the man that her little sister sees, but no one else? And why does it seem that, ever since they arrived, the trees have been creeping closer?

Filled with just as many twists and turns as The Dead House, and with achingly beautiful, chilling language that delivers haunting scenes, AND THE TREES CREPT IN is the perfect follow-up novel for master horror writer Dawn Kurtagich.
Another BEA title that's calling my name!! Ack!! I wish I could read faster! And not have to work! LOL!

  7. I really want to read And the Trees Crept In. I enjoyed The Dead House, although not as much as some other people, but I do believe the author has a lot of talent and I am excited to see what she comes up with next.

  8. I still need to read an Ember in the Ashes, but I couldn't be more excited for And the Trees Crept In! Sounds creepy, and I really enjoyed The Dead House1
