Waiting on Wednesday: In the Forests of the Night

No Armchair BEA post for today. I wasn't able to participate in the scheduled blogger interviews and the other posts I tried to do didn't work out, so I'm only doing a WOW post today. :)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Visit Breaking The Spine to see more entries!

This week, I am eagerly waiting on:

In the Forests of the Night by Kersten Hamilton
Publisher: Clarion
Genre: Urban Fantasy, Young Adult
Publication Date: 10.3.2011
Teagan, Finn, and Aiden have made it out of Mag Mell alive, but the Dark Man's forces are hot on their heels. Back in Chicago, Tea’s goblin cousins show up at her school, sure she will come back to Mag Mell, as goblin blood is never passive once awoken. Soon she will belong to Fear Doirich and join them. In the meantime, they are happy to entertain themselves by trying to seduce, kidnap, or kill Tea’s family and friends.
Teagan knows she doesn’t have much time left, and she refuses to leave Finn or her family to be tortured and killed. A wild Stormrider, born to rule and reign, is growing stronger inside her. But as long as she can hold on, she’s still Teagan Wylltson, who plans to be a veterinarian and who heals the sick and hurting. The disease that’s destroying her—that’s destroying them all—has a name: Fear Doirich.
And Teagan Wylltson is not going to let him win.

Sometime in the past two months this cover and description were revealed and I. had. no. idea! I honestly just happened to come across the cover two days ago while on Goodreads, and literally squealed. First of all, I can't believe I missed the reveal, and second of all: MORE FINN!!!

If you have been following my blog since January, you know that Tyger Tyger (book #1 in this series) seriously stole my heart. I am dying--DYING--to get my hands on an early copy of this one because I honestly don't think I can wait until October.

Side note: Not a fan of the cover. The first book's cover was haunting and gorgeous, but I'm not really feeling this one. The title is awesome though. It is the second line of the poem that is mentioned a lot in the first book:
Tyger! Tyger! burning bright  - book 1
In the forests of the night,  - book 2
What immortal hand or eye  - I'm assuming book 3
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?  - I'm assuming book 4

-William Blake (Read the full poem)

What are you waiting on?

  11. Awesome WoW pick! I haven't read the first one yet because I've had so many other books to read, but I'm really hoping to get too it soon.
    I really like the top half of the cover but the face in the bottom half looks a little anime-ish which doesn't seem to fit.

  12. That cover is super duper creepy looking. It looks really amateurish, like a kid just photoshopped some eyes to be yellow, then photoshopped them onto a blue version of the first cover. No thanks.

  13. Christy: I think it's definitely worth it. I absolutely loved it!

    Mary: Thank you! :)

    Juju: Love your enthusiasm!

    Sally: It's soooo good! I hope you get to read it.

    Scribal Goddess: Yes, the naming is very cool!

    Sharon: Thanks for stopping by!

    Amy: Thanks for commenting!

    Kaity: I agree; the top half is nice, but it's the face that looks funny. Also, I hope you get to read it!

    Gina: Hahaha. I agree!


Thanks for commenting! I read each and every one, and reply as soon as I can :)

Please note: The Reading Fever is an award-free zone. I am very flattered, but comments are all the thanks I need.
