Waiting on Wednesday #208 - The Sisters of Salt and Iron & Revenge and the Wild

"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: Kady Cross 
Release Date: March 30, 2016 
Published by: Harlequin TEEN 

As Halloween approaches, twin sisters Lark, who is alive, and Wren, a tethered spirit, find themselves drifting apart. While Lark is happy with new boyfriend Ben, Wren is still hurting over her own still-alive-and-kicking love-interest, Kevin, who may or may not have kissed another girl. Spending more time on the Other Side, and less time with her sister in the land of the living, Lark becomes close with the spirit of a young man, Noah, who was killed years ago. But Noah is not as nice as he seems, and his thirst for vengeance has a dark and sudden influence on Wren. With the veil between the worlds thinning for Halloween, the spirits are getting stronger and it will be up to Lark and her friends to stop Noah and save Wren from becoming a monster. But the only way to do that could be to kill the boy that Wren is falling in love with. (Summary from Goodreads)

I LOVED the fist book in this series and seriously CANNOT wait for the next one! I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to sleep with the light on again but it's worth it!

Release Date: February 2, 2016
Published by: Balzer + Bray 

The two-bit town of Rogue City is a lawless place, full of dark magic and saloon brawls, monsters and six-shooters. But it's perfect for seventeen-year-old Westie, the notorious adopted daughter of local inventor Nigel Butler.

Westie was only a child when she lost her arm and her family to cannibals on the wagon trail. Nine years later, Westie may seem fearsome with her foul-mouthed tough exterior and the powerful mechanical arm built for her by Nigel, but the memory of her past still haunts her. She's determined to make the killers pay for their crimes--and there's nothing to stop her except her own reckless ways.

But Westie's search ceases when a wealthy family come to town looking to invest in Nigel's latest invention, a machine that can harvest magic from gold--which Rogue City desperately needs as the magic wards that surround the city start to fail. There's only one problem: the investors look exactly like the family who murdered Westie's kin. With the help of Nigel's handsome but scarred young assistant, Alistair, Westie sets out to prove their guilt. But if she's not careful, her desire for revenge could cost her the family she has now. (Summary from Goodreads)

This sounds like a crazy mix of genres that I cannot wait to try! Plus there's a kick-butt female MC which I am always looking for. I'm in.

What are you waiting on this week?

  3. YES for Revenge and the Wild!! It's been a long while since I read any steampunk (which I love), so this seems like the perfect opportunity to read some again :)

  4. Revenge and the Wild sounds fantastic, but I could never stomach cannibalism. I'm trapped between wanting to read about Westie but wanting to avoid her past. Ugh. But great choices regardless of my fears!

    Here's my Waiting on Wednesday post.
