Waiting on Wednesday #96


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 Rook by Sharon Cameron (Scholastic):

rookHistory has a way of repeating itself. In the Sunken City that was once Paris, all who oppose the new revolution are being put to the blade. Except for those who disappear from their prison cells, a red-tipped rook feather left in their place. Is the mysterious Red Rook a savior of the innocent or a criminal?

Meanwhile, across the sea in the Commonwealth, Sophia Bellamy’s arranged marriage to the wealthy René Hasard is the last chance to save her family from ruin. But when the search for the Red Rook comes straight to her doorstep, Sophia discovers that her fiancé is not all he seems. Which is only fair, because neither is she.

As the Red Rook grows bolder and the stakes grow higher, Sophia and René find themselves locked in a tantalizing game of cat and mouse.

Daring intrigue, delicious romance, and spine-tingling suspense fill the pages of this extraordinary tale from award-winning author Sharon Cameron.


Why I’m looking forward to this book:

I LOVED Sharon Cameron’s debut, The Dark Unwinding and the sequel is on my to-read list. This one seems very different – her first series was historical in nature, and this one seems rather dystopian-ish from the summary – but I’m sure it will be equally as awesome. And a rogue abductor taking people from the prison? Sign me up!

Release Date: April 28, 2015
