"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is Until I Die (the sequel to Die For Me) by Amy Plum. Here's the synopsis:
"Kate has chosen to leave the comfort and safety of her human world in order to join Vincent in the dangerous supernatural universe he inhabits. For his part, he has sworn to go against his very nature and resist the repeated deaths that are his fate as a revenant—even though it will bring him immeasurable suffering.
Heady with romance and rife with danger, the second book of the DIE FOR ME trilogy follows Vincent and Kate as they search—separately—for a solution to their plight, pursuing their quest from the glamorous streets of Paris to the city’s squalid underbelly. Although the experiment that Vincent attempts is progressively destroying him, he insists on seeing it through to the end. This prompts Kate to strike out on her own into the dangerous world of the revenants to find another way. But she unwittingly puts everyone she loves at risk when she discovers a family of ancient healers who hold the key to a secret that could help the bardia—the good revenants—overthrow their murderous enemies, the numa, forever.
And while the lovers search for something they have little chance of finding, a new threat arises among the numa. Kate finds herself in the midst of an ancient and deadly war, not as a bystander...but as a target."
So, this is a weird choice for me this week - not because I don't want to read the book but because although I have the hardback of Die For Me, I still haven't read it yet (I know, but if you saw my TBR pile, you'd totally understand). BUT, will you look at how STUNNING that cover is? I'd buy it for that alone at this point! I love the romance of it all and Paris is one of those cities that I've always wanted to visit so I know I'm going to enjoy these books. One good thing about not reading a book early or when it's just been released is that thankfully I don't have to wait as long for the sequel. HOORAH! Trust me to find the positive ;) Until I Die is published on 3rd May, 2012.
