Waiting on Wednesday #14

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Jocelyn's Waiting On: 

Passenger (Passenger, #1): Alexandra Bracken
Publication Date: January 5th, 2016

passage, n.
i. A brief section of music composed of a series of notes and flourishes.
ii. A journey by water; a voyage.
iii. The transition from one place to another, across space and time.

In one devastating night, violin prodigy Etta Spencer loses everything she knows and loves. Thrust into an unfamiliar world by a stranger with a dangerous agenda, Etta is certain of only one thing: she has traveled not just miles but years from home. And she’s inherited a legacy she knows nothing about from a family whose existence she’s never heard of. Until now.

Nicholas Carter is content with his life at sea, free from the Ironwoods—a powerful family in the colonies—and the servitude he’s known at their hands. But with the arrival of an unusual passenger on his ship comes the insistent pull of the past that he can’t escape and the family that won’t let him go so easily. Now the Ironwoods are searching for a stolen object of untold value, one they believe only Etta, Nicholas’ passenger, can find. In order to protect her, he must ensure she brings it back to them— whether she wants to or not.

Together, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the traveler who will do anything to keep the object out of the Ironwoods’ grasp. But as they get closer to the truth of their search, and the deadly game the Ironwoods are play­ing, treacherous forces threaten to sep­arate Etta not only from Nicholas but from her path home . . . forever

Even though I have yet to read The Darkest Minds trilogy, I have heard nothing but amazing things about Alexandra Bracken. This is definitely looking like historical fantasy to me, which I have been loving lately! I have extremely high hopes for this one. 

Cassie's Waiting On: 

Restoration (The Revelation Series #5) by Randi Cooley Wilson
Publication Date: November 30, 2015


Would You Run
Would You Fight
Would You Fall To Fate

If your heart was full of love, could you give it all up?

Eve Collins will do anything to save those she loves, especially her gargoyle protector and mate, Asher St. Michael. With the world crumbling down around them, Eve and Asher must face the final battle between darkness and light. One that will end in great sacrifice.

When the skies darken and love in it’s truest form is tested, would you run? When death becomes silence and battle lines are drawn, would you fight? If you had to sacrifice, to save the one you loved, would you fall to fate? Would you dare to let it go?

The End, Begins.

I've been a huge fan of this series ever since it came out.  It's so original and fun, plus Randi's writing is phenomenal (I wrote a review for the 4th book in the series if you want to check it out).  I'm going to be heartbroken that this series is ending, but fans can look forward to a spin-off series next!

  1. Oh I am very curious about The Passenger! Just saw Netgalley has a "placeholder" for it. Got me all excited too since I just got auto approval from that publisher. Sigh...

    Hope you enjoy it once you read it!
