Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, highlighting the upcoming releases being eagerly awaited.
My WOW for this week is: The Gathering (Darkness Rising, Book 1) by Kelley Armstrong, who is expanding the YA version of her Otherworld. This is the second YA trilogy, Darkness Rising, the first is Darkest Powers. I'm a huge fan of her Otherworld series, a must-read for any paranormal fiction fan. Her YA series runs parallel to Otherworld, comprised of the same species of creatures--werewolves, witches, sorcerers, necromancers etc. But her YA series comes with a twist: young people coming into their powers are finding that they have been the victims of experiments meant to create super powerful versions. Darkness Rising focuses on a new group of teens facing these challenges.
The Otherworld created by Kelley Armstrong is amazing. Her world lies parallel to ours and is filled with intrigue and interesting characters. I am anxious to see how she furthers this world in the Darkness Rising trilogy.
