Waiting on Wednesday (#2)

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

So we're going to start featuring two books from our "can't-wait-to-read" selection each week.

Jess's Waiting on Wednesday:


Goddess Interrupted (Goddess Test #2) 
by Aimee Carter 
Release Date: March 27th, 2012


Kate Winters has won immortality. 

But if she wants a life in the Underworld with Henry, she’ll have to fight for it. 

Becoming immortal wasn’t supposed to be the easy part. Though Kate is about to be crowned Queen of the Underworld, she’s as isolated as ever. And despite her growing love for Henry, ruler of the Underworld, he’s becoming ever more distant and secretive. Then, in the midst of Kate’s coronation, Henry is abducted by the only being powerful enough to kill him: the King of the Titans. 

As the other gods prepare for a war that could end them all, it is up to Kate to save Henry from the depths of Tartarus. But in order to navigate the endless caverns of the Underworld, Kate must enlist the help of the one person who is the greatest threat to her future. 

Henry’s first wife, Persephone.

Donna's Waiting on Wednesday<
Everneath (Everneath #1)  
by Brodi Ashton 
Released Date: January 3rd, 2012

Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals Feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she's returned- to her old life, her family, her friends- before being banished back to the underworld... this time forever. 
She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can't find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists. 


Nikki longs to spend these months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than anything. But there's a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back- this time as his queen. 


As Nikki's time grows short and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she's forced to make the hardest decision of her life: find a way to cheat fate and remain on the surface with Jack or return to the Everneath and become's Cole's....

Two very good choices. I already have both on my list, and I can't wait for their releases! (: Both are kind of in the same vein (well, the Goddess Test is similar to Everneath), but that's also what's so interesting. I like seeing authors take those used story lines and make it their own.

If you like, stop by and check out my WoW.

Everneath is on my list too. That's a gorgeous cover. I haven't read the first Goddess Test book, though those could be a nice change from the usual paranormal characters. Good choices!
