Waiting on Wednesday #40


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 I’m Waiting on Wednesday for Thornhill (Hemlock #2) by Kathleen Peacock (Katherine Tegen):

NOTE: Summary contains spoilers for the first book, Hemlock.

thornhillMac can’t lose another friend. Even if he doesn’t want to be found.

The ripple effect caused by Mac’s best friend Amy’s murder has driven Mac’s new love, Kyle, to leave Hemlock and disappear from her life forever. But Mac knows that Kyle plans to enroll in a rehabilitation camp, where he can live with other werewolves. She refuses to accept his decision, especially since the camps are rumored to be tortuous. So she sets out in search of Kyle with a barely sober Jason—and Amy’s all-seeing ghost—in tow.

Clues lead Mac to find Kyle in a werewolf den in Colorado—but their reunion is cut short by a Tracker raid. Now Mac and Kyle are trapped inside the electric fences of Thornhill, a camp for young werewolves. As she devises an escape plan, Mac uncovers dangerous secrets buried within the walls of Thornhill—and realizes that the risk to the people she loves is greater than ever before.


Why I’m looking forward to this book:

While I did not love Hemlock, I was intrigued enough by the ending to want to read the second book. And this summary sounds SO much better, too, full of more action and (hopefully) less love-triangle. I cannot wait to see how she writes this werewolf camp, and just what Mac’s plan is to get her and Kyle out (and where the heck is Jason in all of this? Inquiring minds want to know!). While my disappointment with Hemlock will keep me from being overly exuberant about this one prior to my reading it, I am cautiously optimistic that it will be good. Fingers crossed! (Also: I ADORE the pink flowers on this cover. So pretty!)

Release Date: September 10, 2013

      I’m glad I’m not the only one! I saw so much love for Hemlock, but it felt very typical ya paranormal to me, with the love triangle. Still, the ending was compelling and this one sounds SO much better that I can’t resist.
