Waiting on Wednesday #62 - Nameless and Dance of Red Death

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Be sure to post a link to your Waiting on Wednesday below!

This week's pre-publication "We can't wait to read it!" selections are...

Author: Lili St. Crow
Release Date: April 4, 2013
Published by: Razorbill

When Camille was six years old, she was discovered alone in the snow by Enrico Vultusino, godfather of the Seven--the powerful Families that rule magic-ridden New Haven. Papa Vultusino adopted the mute, scarred child, naming her after his dead wife and raising her in luxury on Haven Hill alongside his own son, Nico. 
Now Cami is turning sixteen. She's no longer mute, though she keeps her faded scars hidden under her school uniform, and though she opens up only to her two best friends, Ruby and Ellie, and to Nico, who has become more than a brother to her. But even though Cami is a pampered Vultusino heiress, she knows that she is not really Family. Unlike them, she is a mortal with a past that lies buried in trauma. And it's not until she meets the mysterious Tor, who reveals scars of his own, that Cami begins to uncover the secrets of her birth...to find out where she comes from and why her past is threatening her now.  (Summary from Goodreads)

This sounds like a dark, mysterious tale. I can't wait to find out what is hidden in Cami's past! 


Author: Bethany Griffin
Release Date: June 11, 2013 
Published by: Greenwillow Books

In Dance of the Red Death, Araby's world is in shambles--betrayal, death, disease, and evil forces surround her. She has no one to trust. But she finds herself and discovers that she will fight for the people she loves, and for her city.
Her revenge will take place at the menacing masked ball, though it could destroy her and everyone she loves...or it could turn her into a hero.
With a not to Edgar Allan Poe, Bethany Griffin concludes her tragic and mysterious Red Death series with a heroine that young adult readers will never forget. (Summary from Goodreads)

I can't wait to find out what happens to Araby next! Griffin left us with such a cliffhanger in book 1! And these covers...WOW! 

What are you waiting on this week?
