From #1 New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot, the dark reimagining of the Persephone myth comes to a thrilling conclusion.
Death has her in his clutches. She doesn't want him to let her go. Seventeen-year-old Pierce Oliviera knew by accepting the love of John Hayden, she'd be forced to live forever in the one place she's always dreaded most: the Underworld. The sacrifice seemed worth it, though, because it meant she could be with the boy she loves.
But now her happiness—and safety—are threatened, all because of the Furies have discovered that John has broken one of their strictest rules: Never revive a human soul.
If the balance between life and death isn't fixed, both the Underworld and Pierce's home back on earth will be wiped away. But there's only one way to restore order. Someone has to die.
Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mar her face, her beauty is said to be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana.
Winter despises her stepmother, and knows Levana won’t approve of her feelings for her childhood friend–the handsome palace guard, Jacin. But Winter isn’t as weak as Levana believes her to be and she’s been undermining her stepmother’s wishes for years. Together with the cyborg mechanic, Cinder, and her allies, Winter might even have the power to launch a revolution and win a war that’s been raging for far too long.
Can Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter defeat Levana and find their happily ever afters?
To be honest, I like this cover, but it isn't my favorite in the series (that would be Cress). It is pretty, though, if a bit different looking than the other covers. Now that I've got that out of the way, do I even have to say why I'm waiting on this one? It seems almost everyone is, and for good reason! I can't wait to see the surely spectacular conclusion this series draws to.
I thought every once in a while I should ask about you all. This blog is obviously very me, and I think in its rebirth I want to reflect that more. So, every once in a while I'll these posts for discussion, where I reflect on my reading, things that have been going on in my life, that kind of thing, and ask you to do the same.
For the first post, I haven't really thought about what to say, since this is a very new idea of mine. With school over, my life is relatively uneventful these days. I've definitely been reading. Currently, it's A Court of Thorns and Roses, and tis is probably blasphemy, but I can't seem to get into it. I wish that could, because everyone seems to adore it, but it's just not doing it for me, much as I like Tamlin.
That's all for today, I think. Just a short little post, to say hi.
Postscript: This post is also a secret giveaway (meaning I won't tell you what you can win, it's a surprise!). Just comment telling me what's going on in your life with your email to enter. You can also gain a bonus +3 entries by tweeting! It's honor system in regards to telling me you tweeted, but please don't abuse it.
