Waiting on Wednesday (#28)

"Waiting On" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Here's what I'm waiting on this week:

Elemental by Antony John

Hardcover, 320 pages
Expected publication: November 21st 2012  by Dial
A mysterious and powerful fantasy adventure from a Schneider Award winner

In the near future, most of the population of the United States has been destroyed by the plague. The few remaining survivors live in colonies on the barrier islands off the East Coast. In one colony near Cape Hatteras, almost all the members have elemental powers and can control wind, water, earth, and fire. All but sixteen-year-old Thomas. When the Guardians, the powerful adult leaders, are kidnapped by pirates seeking to take over their colony, it is up to Thomas and a small group of teens to save them and preserve the mysteries of the island.

Fast action, strategy, and mystery churn together into a bold and fresh fantasy from an award-winning author.
From the author of Five Flavors of Dumb and Thou Shalt Not Road Trip comes a fabulous, shiny new SF/Fantasy/Dystopia. Now, I've been pining for this book ever since I first heard about it. I was EXTREMELY fortunate to be contacted by the fabulous author himself and offered an ARC of this beauty, and I am still WOW-ing it because I just can't wait for the finished copy to come out, so I can buy myself a one and make every one I know buy one (or many), too!

Also, just FYI, the phenomenal Antony John will be one of the YA Galaxy Defenders in the 2012 edition of MEN in YA (taking place in October), so look out for that, lovelies! :)

What's your WOW this week? Leave me a linky, I'll drop by!

I've also recently heard of Elemental and I've requested it as a DRC, so fingers crossed my request will be accepted! Enjoy it! :)

Jessie Marie said...

Oh, wow, that sounds awesome. I am a little put off by how similar the cover is to the Divergent trilogy but it's very cool, nevertheless. And the story sounds awesome. Elementals in Hatteras, my favorite place... EVER? Yes, please. : )

Great pick, hope it's as good as it looks!
