Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Everything is in ruins.
A devastating plague has decimated the population. And those who are left live in fear of catching it as the city crumbles to pieces around them.
So what does Araby Worth have to live for?
Nights in the Debauchery Club, beautiful dresses, glittery make-up . . . and tantalizing ways to forget it all.
But in the depths of the club—in the depths of her own despair—Araby will find more than oblivion. She will find Will, the terribly handsome proprietor of the club. And Elliott, the wickedly smart aristocrat. Neither boy is what he seems. Both have secrets. Everyone does.
And Araby may find something not just to live for, but to fight for—no matter what it costs her.
Coming out on April 24, 2012
- Post plague that has almost destroyed the world, with a almost flash back in time that sounds so much like a speakeasy. Almost steampunk like to me.
- The whole premise sounds interesting. Though I wouldn't be surprised if they throw in a vampire or something supernatural. The title just screams "Blood sucker!", but we will see when it is published.
- The cover is beautiful. The grays, whites and blacks with the red mist and the red dress are so eye catching.
What are you waiting for?
