Waiting on Wednesday (times two!) (77)

Falling Kingdoms
Morgan Rhodes
December 11th, 2012
Sixteen-year-old Cleo has grown up in luxury, the royal heiress to a prosperous kingdom. But beneath her nation’s seemingly peaceful surface lies dangerous unrest. Whispers of war are growing ever louder—intensified by a murderous incident for which Cleo’s betrothed, Aron, is accused. 

Amidst the ongoing intrigue, Cleo has a more desperate mission. She defies her father’s orders and sets off on a secret and perilous journey into a neighboring country, seeking a magic long thought to be mythical. If it’s real, it could be the cure that heals her ailing sister. If it’s only legend, Cleo will be stranded in a kingdom that has just declared war on her own.
I really like the sound of this one. Magic, lies...very exciting!

The Kill Order 
James Dashner
August 14th, 2012
Before WICKED was formed, before the Glade was built, before Thomas entered the Maze, sun flares seared the earth and mankind fell to disease. "The Kill Order" tells the story of that fall.
I still need to catch up on this series because The Maze Runner was incredible. I'm sure this prequel will be just as great, too! 

What are you waiting on?

  2. So excited for Falling Kingdoms! Just, yes! I should get on the Maze Runner series someday, it's been recommended so much!

  7. I had no idea that there was going to be a prequel to Maze Runner- I LOVED that book, but never finished the series, b/c my students keep signing out the books! :) Great pick!
