Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The weekly event is meant to showcase eagerly anticipated upcoming releases…and to spread the word! This week I’m excited about:
Genre: DYSTOPIAN, YA
Anticipated Publication Date: May 12, 2015
End of Days is the explosive conclusion to Susan Ee’s bestselling Penryn & the End of Days trilogy.
After a daring escape from the angels, Penryn and Raffe are on the run. They’re both desperate to find a doctor who can reverse the twisted changes inflicted by the angels on Raffe and Penryn’s sister. As they set off in search of answers, a startling revelation about Raffe’s past unleashes dark forces that threaten them all.
When the angels release an apocalyptic nightmare onto humans, both sides are set on a path toward war. As unlikely alliances form and strategies shift, who will emerge victorious? Forced to pick sides in the fight for control of the earthly realm, Raffe and Penryn must choose: Their own kind, or each other?
It feels like I have been waiting for Susan Ee’s END OF DAYS for so damn long. If you haven’t heard of the Penryn & the End of Days books (the series debut is Angelfall) then you’ve clearly been living under a rock. It’s basically the only dystopian story I have any interest in. I admit that I was disappointed with the second book, World After – it just wasn’t as tightly plotted or perfectly written as Angelfall was. But I have faith that Susan Ee is gonna knock it out of the park with End of Days.
Like my pick last week, I expect End of Days to be on quite a few WoW posts. The cover was just released on February 5th via Entertainment Weekly, so it’s been getting some seriously intense buzz. Couple that with the promise of epic action and some major swoon, and End of Days is going to be a mega hit!
