Waiting on Wednesday: The Stars Never Rise
Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. It’s were we display a book that we can’t wait to read because it sounds so good. 🙂
Sixteen-year-old Nina Kane should be worrying about her immortal soul, but she’s too busy trying to actually survive. Her town’s population has been decimated by soul-consuming demons, and souls are in short supply. Watching over her younger sister, Mellie, and scraping together food and money are all that matters. The two of them are a family. They gave up on their deadbeat mom a long time ago.
When Nina discovers that Mellie is keeping a secret that threatens their very existence, she’ll do anything to protect her. Because in New Temperance, sins are prosecuted as crimes by the brutal Church and its army of black-robed exorcists. And Mellie’s sin has put her in serious trouble.
To keep them both alive, Nina will need to trust Finn, a fugitive with deep green eyes who has already saved her life once and who might just be an exorcist. But what kind of exorcist wears a hoodie?
Wanted by the Church and hunted by dark forces, Nina knows she can’t survive on her own. She needs Finn and his group of rogue friends just as much as they need her.
Okay so I was trying to find a book to put on my WoW and I can’t remember if I did this one or not. I do believe I featured it as one of the books I wanted to read in 2015, so maybe that is why I kept thinking I featured it. Anyway I think this one sounds really cool and believe or not I haven’t read this author yet. *hangs head* This book sounds really good so I to snatch this one up to read this year! 🙂 It comes out in June.
