Waiting on Wednesday (43): Under the Never Sky, The Last Echo and Blood Song

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where you can post about upcoming books you're looking forward to.

This is a wonderful chance for blogger to show off what's coming out soon that they are excited about! Every week my wishlist balloons thanks to this awesome meme.

Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland—nicknamed The Death Shop—are slim. If the cannibals don’t get her, the violent, electrified energy storms eventually will. In this dystopia, even the very air she breathes could kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild, dangerous—a savage. He’s also her only hope. 

Perry needs Aria, too. She alone holds the key to his redemption. And their unlikely alliance will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky. 
Debut author Veronica Rossi is accumulating fans from all over the globe—the book has already sold to more than twenty countries. It’s not surprising that foreign rights for this title have been flying off the shelf. It’s a tantalizing romance in any language.
Why I need this: I've always been a fan of dystopia and up pops another interesting novel. I love the idea of the heroine going forth into the dangerous unknown and falling for one of those people on her way to finding herself. Can't wait for this debut!

Under the Never Sky is out February 7, 2012 by HarperTeen.

The Last Echo by Kimberly Derting
Violet kept her morbid ability to sense dead bodies a secret from everyone except her family and her childhood-best-friend-turned-boyfriend, Jay Heaton. That is until forensic psychologist Sara Priest discovered Violet’s talent and invited her to use her gift to track down murderers. Now, as she works with an eclectic group of individuals—including mysterious and dangerously attractive Rafe—it’s Violet’s job to help those who have been murdered by bringing their killers to justice. When Violet discovers the body of a college girl killed by “the girlfriend collector” she is determined to solve the case. But now the serial killer is on the lookout for a new “relationship” and Violet may have caught his eye...
Why I need this: Because I'm a huge fan of this series. The first novel blew me away, the second was just as good. Violet is a great lead, Jay makes all the fangirls swoon and I can't wait to find out what type of evil awaits me in this novel!

The Last Echo comes out April 17, 2012 to HarperCollins.

Blood Song by Rhiannon Hart

I wanted to turn but I was held captive by the song on the wind. I’m coming, I told the voices. Please, wait for me. 
When her sister becomes betrothed to a prince in a northern nation, Zeraphina’s only consolations are that her loyal animal companions are by her side – and that her burning hunger to travel north is finally being sated. 
Already her black hair and pale eyes mark her out as different, but now Zeraphina must be even more careful to keep her secret safe. Craving blood is not considered normal behaviour for anyone, let alone a princess. So when the king’s advisor, Rodden, seems to know more about her condition than she does, Zeraphina is determined to find out more. 
Zeraphina must be willing to sacrifice everything if she’s to uncover the truth – but what if the truth is beyond her worst nightmares.
Why I need this: Vampire or what? I want to know what secrets Zeraphina is holding and I love that it's set against a fantasy backdrop. I was a fantasy buff before I even knew I liked YA so I have have a craving for paranormal fantasies quite often!

Blood Song comes out September 1, 2011 to Random House Australia.

What are you looking forward to?

  3. I concur, Under the Never Sky has definitely become a rather big blimp on my book reading radar. Me want, me want NOW!

  4. Great WoW picks this week Amber! I'm loving the recent cover reveals for The Last Echo and Under the Never Sky! I'm unfamiliar with Blood Song but it sure sounds like a dark read.

  5. They all sound so good! And such beautiful covers on all of them. Ohhh dear. My wishlist is growing again.


Thinking of writing something below? Well, that's why you are awesome! I always love feedback!

This blog is an award free zone. With the demand of a full time job, blogging time is becoming much more precious and I just don't have the time to meet the demands of awards. Thanks so much for thinking of me anyway!
