Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week’s Waiting on Wednesday post is for Infatuate (Gilded Wings #2) by Aimee Agresti (Harcourt Children’s Books):
NOTE: Spoilers for the first book, Illuminate, in summary.
Haven Terra is still recovering from an internship that brought her literally to the brink of hell when a trip to New Orleans leads to more trouble. Graduating early from high school leaves the spring semester free, so Haven and her friends Dante and Lance head to the Big Easy to volunteer with community service projects. But their true mission becomes clear when they run across an enclave of devils known as the Krewe. New Orleans is a free-for-all for these shape-shifting devils, who are more reckless and vicious than any Haven, Lance, and Dante have encountered. And they soon discover their French Quarter housemates are also angels-in-training, and together they must face off with the Krewe in their quest for wings. But Haven’s resolve is tested when Lucian, the repentant devil with whom she was infatuated, resurfaces and asks her for help escaping the underworld. Can he be trusted? Or will aiding him cost Haven her angel wings—and her life? Thrilling, romantic, and full of surprises, this gripping sequel to Illuminate takes the battle of good and evil to the next level.
Why I’m looking forward to this book:
While I had some issues with Illuminate – mostly the length and the slow-moving pace – I enjoyed it enough that I’m definitely looking forward to the second book. I want to know what’s next for Haven, where her relationship with Lance is headed, and what’s going to happen when Lucien inevitably shows up (and if he can be trusted). This book has a different sort of angel mythology as well, which – while not as creative as, say, Sweet Evil – was different enough to pique my interest and catch my attention.
Release Date: March 5, 2013
