We’re here, then we’re gone, and that was true before they came. That’s always been true. The Others didn’t invent death; they just perfected it. Gave death a face to put back in our face, because they knew that was the only way to crush us. It won’t end on any continent or ocean, no mountain or plain, jungle or desert. It will end where it began, where it had been from the beginning, on the battlefield of the last beating human heart.

Master storyteller Rick Yancey invokes triumph, loss, and unrelenting action as the fate of the planet is decided in the conclusion to this epic series.

I am so excited for this final book!!! I love sci-fi and aliens, but I much prefer when the aliens are hellbent on destroying us lowly, pathetic humans. :) I also can't wait for the movie adaptation of the first book in this series. It actually looks pretty good, right? Even if aliens aren't your sort of thing, this series has so much to offer, mostly regarding human nature and the unwillingness to give up, no matter the odds.

I think I'm going to have to do a re-read. Or at least a re-listen. =)

(ETA: Oops. I already started my re-listen. Probably should've waited a little longer, but oh, well.)

What are you desperately waiting for this Wednesday? Let us know in the comments or share a link to your own WoW post!
