Waiting on Wednesday #11: Trial by FIre by Josephine Angelini
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. This meme lets us spotlight upcoming releases that we are eagerly waiting for. Of course, I have a huge list to choose from. The book I can't wait to get my hands on is:
Title: Trial By Fire
Series: The Worldwalker Trilogy
Author: Josephine Angelini
Publisher: Feiwel &Friends
Publication: September 2nd, 2014
Love burns. Worlds collide. Magic reigns.
This world is trying to kill Lily Proctor. Her life-threatening allergies keep her from enjoying many of the experiences that other teenagers take for granted...which is why she is determined to enjoy her first (and perhaps only) high-school party. But Lily's life never goes according to plan, and after a humiliating incident in front of half her graduating class Lily wishes she could just disappear.
Suddenly Lily is in a different Salem - one overrun with horrifying creatures and ruled by powerful women called Crucibles. Strongest and cruellest of all the Crucibles is Lillian . . . Lily's identical other self in this alternate universe. This new version of her world is terrifyingly sensual, and Lily is soon overwhelmed by new experiences.
Lily realizes that what makes her weak at home is exactly what makes her extraordinary in New Salem. It also puts her life in danger. Thrown into a world she doesn't understand, Lily is torn between responsibilities she can't hope to shoulder alone, and a love she never expected.
But how can Lily be the saviour of this world when she is literally her own worst enemy?
Why I'm Waiting: I love Josephine's stories, and this sounded great!!! The synopsis really caught my attention, because it sounds really different, unique. Lily being thrown into a whole new world that everyone is depending on her to save when everyone when she seems so fragile at the beginning, will be interesting. Of course, I love all stories with a little romance in them. I also have to say that the cover is what caught my attention. Love this cover!!!!! It is beautiful!!!!
