Waiting on Wednesday (30)

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

My Pick This Week!
Oppression (Children of the Gods, #1)


OPPRESSION tells the story of a young woman who discovers that she belongs to a secret society of individuals with extraordinarily long life spans and unusual abilities. Fearful of prophecies about their only daughter, her parents kept her hidden from the world – and the society – for as long as they could. But when their own untimely deaths leave her to fend for herself, the truth of her origins and the fateful prophecy find her at last. Joining the ranks of such widely popular works as the Twilight Saga, The Hunger Games, and the Mortal Instruments series, Mrs. Therrien's paranormal romance/adventure promises to be the next fan-favorite in its genre.

Why I’m Waiting?

First, I love the cover! I know it’s another face cover but it is beautiful and luminous looking. Second, this sounds epic right?!?! I want to know why they live so long…and what are all these prophecies about? Yeah, I’m already hooked and I don’t even have the book yet!
