“Waiting on Wednesday” is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine. It showcases upcoming releases we’re anticipating!

My pick of the week is:

Frozen (Heart of Dread #1)

by Melissa de la Cruz and Michael Johnston

Coming: 17 September 2013

Publisher: Putnam Juvenille


Welcome to New Vegas, a city once covered in bling, now blanketed in ice. Like much of the destroyed planet, the place knows only one temperature—freezing. But some things never change. The diamond in the ice desert is still a 24-hour hedonistic playground and nothing keeps the crowds away from the casino floors, never mind the rumors about sinister sorcery in its shadows.

At the heart of this city is Natasha Kestal, a young blackjack dealer looking for a way out. Like many, she’s heard of a mythical land simply called “the Blue.” They say it’s a paradise, where the sun still shines and the waters are turquoise. More importantly, it’s a place where Nat won’t be persecuted, even if her darkest secret comes to light.

But passage to the Blue is treacherous, if not impossible, and her only shot is to bet on a ragtag crew of mercenaries led by a cocky runner named Ryan Wesson to take her there. Danger and deceit await on every corner, even as Nat and Wes find themselves inexorably drawn to each other. But can true love survive the lies? Fiery hearts collide in this fantastic tale of the evil men do and the awesome power within us all.

Why I’m excited
I LOVED The Blue Bloods series. I was sad to see it end. I haven’t read Witches of East End, but I’m excited that she has another YA series coming out. My TBR list is super long right now, so I probably won’t get to it til after Christmas, but I’m so excited to get my hands on this one.

Why I need you to be excited
Magic and a frozen world? C’mon! The possibilities for this one are ENDLESS! Come explore it with me!
