“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. Basically books that are not yet out that we are dying to get our hands on. This week’s pick is:
Quanta by Lola Dodge
Just because Quanta can see the future doesn't mean she can change it. She's spent most of her life imprisoned, feeding her captors information to keep herself alive, but she's finally reached the endgame and her death creeps closer by the moment.
The son of two senators, Altair Orpheus leads a life of privilege that provides the perfect cover for his side job: working with the rebel Shadow Ravens to undermine the ruling Seligo government. Everything is running like clockwork until he crosses paths with Quanta. As he watches her deftly maneuver through life in the perverse prison, his plastic heart melts. A jailbreak would be suicide, but Tair is willing to sacrifice everything to give her a chance at happiness.
Now Quanta senses a terrifying new future brewing. She and Tair are bound together, but every image of them kissing, snuggling, and acting knee-weakeningly happy is balanced by a much darker possibility. They'll be picture perfect together, but only until time rips them apart. How can she follow her heart when she's seen how their love plays out?
Duh! Ink Monster book is auto-buy. Seriously though the first book in The Shadow Ravens, Cipher (review), was pretty darn good and I'm excited to see where this one goes. It was described as each different author telling a different heroines POV as they all move towards the same goal, like the Avengers. Different heroes get their own movies but come together as a team. First love the Avengers so high point for reference there. Also this just sounds great. A prisoner because of something she can't control, fighting to stay alive, and romance. Doomed as it may seem. I can't wait to see what develops between Tair and Quanta and how she decides to move forward with her knowledge. Plus they always have such pretty covers!
That’s one I’m waiting on. What are you waiting on? Share in the comments below!
