"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...
Author: Bethany Griffin
Series: Masque of the Red Death, book #2
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Publication Date: April 23, 2013
Why I'm waiting: I wanted this book the second I finished Masque of the Red Death. That book was captivating and so full of surprises, and book two is poised to be even more so. And did I read that right? There are only two books in this series? That's kind of impressive...an author who knows her story could be told in two books rather than stretching it out to make three. I mean, I would probably [gladly] read a third book in this series, but I'll settle for what I can get. =)
Not sure how I feel about the cover. So, if the red on the cover of Masque symbolized warning and death, does this purple really symbolize royalty and wealth...as in Araby's rise to the front ranks of the rebellion, maybe? I can get on board with that, I suppose. As long as Elliott is there by her side. I don't trust him, but I'm pulling for him, anyway. :P
