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

This week's WoW selection is...



Add to Goodreads

Title:  Shadows
Author:  Ilsa J. Bick
Series:  2nd book in the Ashes trilogy
Publisher:  EgmontUSA
Publication Date:  September 25, 2012

The Apocalypse does not end.
The Changed will grow in numbers.
The Spared may not survive.

Even before the EMPs brought down the world, Alex was on the run from the demons of her past and the monster living in her head. After the world was gone, she thought Rule was a sanctuary for her and those she'd come to love.

But she was wrong.

Now she's in the fight of her life against the adults who would use her, the survivors who don't trust her, and the Changed who would eat her alive.

Welcome to Shadows, the second book in the haunting apocalyptic Ashes Trilogy: where no one is safe and humans may be the worst of the monsters.


Why I'm waiting:  First off, I need to know that Alex doesn't get eaten.  The ending of Ashes was uber-creepy and left me open-mouthed and panting.  I need to know that everything Alex has been through hasn't been for naught.

Also, I'm kind of on a zombie-kick as of late.  Just finished This is Not a Test, which I LOVED, and I'm about to start Something Strange and Deadly, which I'm sure I'll love because it sounds similar to Dearly, Departed, and I really enjoyed that one.

So, what are you waiting on this week?

  27. The cover certainly matches the tone of the blurb for this book. I may give this one a go eventually.
