Waiting on Wednesday is hosted each week by Breaking the Spine and lets us spotlight a book that we are eagerly waiting to be released.
This week’s Waiting On Wednesday is Firstlife by Gena Showalter!
Publication: February 23rd 2016 by Harlequin Teen
Summary from Goodreads:
NO SECOND CHANCE.
Tenley “Ten” Lockwood is an average seventeen-year-old girl…who has spent the past thirteen months locked inside the Prynne Asylum. The reason? Not her obsession with numbers, but her refusal to let her parents choose where she’ll live—after she dies.
There is an eternal truth most of the world has come to accept: Firstlife is merely a dress rehearsal, and real life begins after death.
In the Everlife, two realms are in power: Troika and Myriad, longtime enemies and deadly rivals. Both will do anything to recruit Ten, including sending their top Laborers to lure her to their side. Soon, Ten finds herself on the run, caught in a wild tug-of-war between the two realms who will do anything to win the right to her soul. Who can she trust? And what if the realm she’s drawn to isn’t home to the boy she’s falling for? She just has to stay alive long enough to make a decision…
Just…. AHHHHHH!! This book sounds so damn interesting, intriguing, and any other adjective you can come up with that means I WANT IT NOW. The cover is gorgeous, the protagonist’s name is unique and awesome sounding, and the sound of the world itself gives me the chills. I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy of this beauty when it comes out next week.
