“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Here’s what I’m waiting on this Wednesday:
♡ Author: Avery Williams
♡ Release Date: January 3, 2012 (North America)
♡ Publisher: Simon & Schuster for Young Readers
♡ Synopsis: Seraphina’s first love made her immortal…her second might get her killed. Incarnation is a new series that introduces a fresh mythology perfect for fans of bestselling series like The Immortals by Alyson Noel and Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.
After spending six hundred years on earth, Seraphina Ames has seen it all. Eternal life provides her with the world’s riches, but at a very high price: innocent lives. Centuries ago, her boyfriend, Cyrus, discovered a method of alchemy that allows them to swap bodies with other humans, jumping from one vessel to the next, taking the human’s life in the process. No longer able to bear the guilt of what she’s done, Sera escapes from Cyrus and vows to never kill again.
Then sixteen-year-old Kailey Morgan gets into a horrific car accident right in front of her, and Sera accidentally takes over her body. For the first time, Sera finds herself enjoying the life of the person she’s inhabiting—and falls for the human boy who lives next door. But Cyrus will stop at nothing until she’s his again, and every moment she stays, she’s putting herself and the people she’s grown to care for in great danger. Will Sera have to give up the one thing that’s eluded her for centuries: true love?
♡ Why?: Anything with alchemy? I’m totally there. I really enjoyed the “Immortals” series by Alyson Noel, and this one is being compared to that one, so I’m hoping this book will be equally as awesome. I could do without the always having to fall in love angle, but I’m hoping that Sera’s journey will take up a majority of the books and not just focusing on the romance part as a constant. Either way, I’m pretty excited about this title.
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
