Waiting On Wednesday (35)


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. This is a once-a-week look at the book(s) I am anxiously awaiting release.

"Burn" by Julianna Baggott

This book is to be released February 4th, 2014. This is the third book in the Pure series.

Inside the Dome, Partridge has taken his father's place as leader of the Pures. His struggle has led him here, intent upon bringing down the Dome from the inside, with the help of a secret resistance force. But things are not as simple from his new position of power and he finds himself tempted by his father's words: perhaps if the world is to survive it needs the Dome--and Partridge--to rule it...

As Partridge's resolve weakens, Pressia and Bradwell continue piecing together the clues left to them from the time before the Detonations. It is their hope that they will be able to heal the Wretches, and free them from their monstrous fusings and the Dome's oppression once and for all. But everything depends, too, on Partridge. Separated by distance and history, can they still trust their friend and ally? Or is the world doomed to an eternity of war and hardship?

I read the first in this series, "Pure", and found it absolutely astounding. It didn't have much romance so the fact that I liked it so much speaks volumes for the author's writing skills and storytelling capabilities. I am anxious to read the rest of the series.

What are you "Waiting On" this Wednesday?
