Waiting on Wednesday (32): Flame 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:

by Amy Kathleen Ryan
Release Date:  January 7, 2014
Published by St. Martin’s Griffin

In the thrilling conclusion to the Sky Chasers series Waverly, Kieran, and Seth struggle to survive on-board the New Horizon—and take down their enemies before it’s too late.

Waverly and the other members of the Empyrean have scattered, and their home ship has been destroyed. Their mission to rescue their parents didn’t go as planned, and now they’re at an even greater disadvantage: trapped with their enemies on the New Horizon, trying to find a way to survive. Kieran has been pulled under Anne Mather’s wing, but is she really trying to make peace, or just using Kieran to build her own power? Meanwhile, Waverly is taken in by a mysterious old man who wants to help her bring Anne Mather down—but the more Waverly cooperates with him, the more dangerous her position is, and the more at odds with Kieran she becomes.

Seth’s situation is even worse. After setting out from the Empyrean on his own, with only a vague strategy to guide him, he is a fugitive aboard the New Horizon. He’s doing what he can to challenge the power of Anne Mather, but he’s badly hurt, and getting sicker.

Will Seth ever see Waverly again? Will his health hold out long enough to help her topple their enemies? And will Waverly find a way to unite with her friends before they all fall? Nothing is sure and every moment is a risk in this explosive finale of the Sky Chasers series. (Cover and synopsis from Goodreads.)

I absolutely LOVED the first two books in this series (as evidenced by my review of book 1, Glow, and my review of book 2, Spark), and I can’t wait to read book 3, Flame!  If you have read and enjoyed the Across the Universe series by Beth Revis, I think you should give the Sky Chasers series a chance!

What book are you waiting on?  Let me know, or leave a link to your WoW post in the comments, and I’ll stop by your blog!

    Enjoyed Across the Universe is the understatement of the century. I frexing loved that book (see what I did there?). *runs off to get the Sky Chasers books*. I won't read the Flame synopsis for fear of my impending reads, but I'm anxious about it nevertheless!

    I thought Glow and Spark were both great too, so this is a definite must-buy for me. Glad its getting closer! Nice pick.
