"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spines, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week, I am super excited for Empower by Jessica Shirvington, the final book in the Embrace series. My biggest pet peeve with books? When the same book, in the same language, comes out months apart in two different countries. Empower has been out in Australia since last fall, which is where the author lives, but doesn't come out in the US until May. How is that fair? It's the same book! You don't even need to translate it! Anyways, rant over, this series is amazing. I'm sad to see it end, but I want this book in my hands NOW! The cover is gorgeous, and is a little different than the rest of the covers. Looking at the covers alone, the reader can really see the journey that Violet has gone through!
Warning, the synopsis contains some major spoilers!
It has been two years since Violet Eden walked away from the city, her friends, her future and - most importantly - her soulmate, Lincoln. Part angel, part human, Violet is determined to stand by the promises she made to save the one she loves.
Living in the perpetual coldness of a broken soul she survives day to day as a Rogue Grigori in London.
But when an unexpected visitor shows up at her door, the news he bears about someone she swore to protect leaves Violet with no choice.
Even worse, she fears that this might all lead back to the night she tries hardest to forget. And what was taken without her permission.
Violet is going back to New York ... and she knows exactly who is going to be there.
With Phoenix in her dreams and Lincoln in her heart she knows it is only a matter of time before the final choice must be made.
