Waiting on Wednesday (33)

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

So I gave this book's prequel Fated two stars when I reviewed it back in July, but I honestly feel like Noel can improve on what I thought was a good idea and it makes me really, really want to read Echo here. Her history may not exactly support those hopes, but I'm still willing to give it a try.

(And I freely admit seeing this cover be unveiled a few months back was what got me to read Fated in the first place. This was a very convincing sort of pretty.)

Echo (Soul Seekers, #2)Echo
by Alyson Noel
November 13, 2012
400 pages (hardcover) 

The second book in the Soul Seekers series about a girl who can navigate between the worlds of the living and the dead by #1 New York Times bestselling author Alyson Noël!

Daire Santos just saved her grandmother's life—and her soul. But at a cost. The Richters, a dark family of sorcerers, have been let loose in the Lowerworld, and Daire and her boyfriend, Dace, must once again work together to find them before they upset the balance between good and evil, and destroy not only their small town in New Mexico, but the entire world.

As Daire and Dace's relationship deepens, Dace’s evil brother Cade grows stronger than ever, building his power and forcing Daire to confront the horrifying prophecy that has brought them all together. One that will leave Daire no choice but to claim her true destiny as Seeker, but only by making an unthinkable sacrifice for the greater good of all.
