Waiting on Wednesday: Underworld

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. This week’s choice is:

Publisher: Scholastic, Inc.
Publish Date: May 2012
Genre: Paranormal, Mythology
Summary: Escape from the realm of the dead is impossible when someone there wants you back. Seventeen-year-old Pierce Oliviera isn’t dead. Not this time.

But she is being held against her will in the dim, twilit world between heaven and hell, where the spirits of the deceased wait before embarking upon their final journey. Her captor, John Hayden, claims it’s for her own safety. Because not all the departed are dear. Some are so unhappy with where they ended up after leaving the Underworld, they’ve come back as Furies, intent on vengeance…on the one who sent them there and on the one whom he loves.

But while Pierce might be safe from the Furies in the Underworld, far worse dangers could be lurking for her there…and they might have more to do with its ruler than with his enemies. And unless Pierce is careful, this time there’ll be no escape.
I love mythology and book one, Abandon, was a great start to the series. I am eager to see how Pierce and John’s relationship develops. Additionally, Scholastic has been has produced the most gorgeous covers for the books in this series! I am definitely excited to read Underworld. What books are you waiting on?

I can't wait to read this one either. The covers are awesome!

I'm waiting for Kelley Armstrong's 5th Darkest Powers book to come out next far away! :(

This cover is spectacular. I still haven't read the first book. I'm on the wait list at my library. It's kind of exciting that there's still a wait list for the first book, especially since I've heard mixed reviews. At any rate, I'm really excited to read the both of them. :)
