Waiting on Wednesday (1) – Spark by Amy Kathleen Ryan

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

My pick this week:
Amy Kathleen Ryan
Release Date:  July 17, 2012
by St. Martin’s Griffin

     Waverly and Kieran are finally reunited on the Empyrean. Kieran has led the boys safely up to this point, and now that the girls are back, their mission seems slightly less impossible: to chase down the New Horizon, and save their parents from the enemy ship. But nothing is truly as it seems…Kieran’s leadership methods have raised Seth’s hackles— and Waverly’s suspicions. Is this really her fiancé? The handsome, loving boy she was torn from just a short time before? More and more, she finds her thoughts aligned with Seth’s. But if Seth is Kieran’s Enemy No. 1, what does that make her?

     In one night, a strange explosion rocks the Empyrean—shooting them off course and delaying their pursuit of the New Horizon—and Seth is mysteriously released from the brig. Seth is the most obvious suspect for the explosion, and Waverly the most obvious suspect for releasing him. As the tension reaches a boiling point, will Seth be able to find the true culprit before Kieran locks them both away—or worse? Will Waverly follow her heart, even if it puts lives at risk? With the balance of power precarious and the clock ticking, every decision counts… every step brings them closer to a new beginning, or a sudden end…

I received an ARC of Glow (Sky Chasers #1) from a Goodreads First Reads giveaway, and it was one of my favorite books of 2011.  For those of you who loved Across the Universe by Beth Revis, you should definitely check out Glow. They’re kind of similar in the fact that they’re both about inhabitants on space ships heading to a new Earth, but the stories are very different and I loved them both!

What book are you waiting on?

    This is very obviously a sequel because the summary makes no sense to me! But I have been wanting to read Glow for awhile, so it's good to know it was good enough to keep you invested in the series!

    I read Glow and thought it was pretty good, but didn't know anything about the sequel, so I'm glad I saw this!
