Waiting On Wednesday: Phoenix by Elizabeth Richards

"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

Phoenix (Black City, #2)

Expected Release Date: June 4th 2013
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile

Weeks after his crucifixion and rebirth as Phoenix, Ash Fisher believes his troubles are far behind him. He and Natalie are engaged and life seems good. But his happiness is short-lived when he receives a threatening visit from Purian Rose, who gives Ash an ultimatum: vote in favor of Rose’s Law permanently relegating Darklings to the wrong side of the wall or Natalie will be killed.

The decision seems obvious to Ash; he must save Natalie. But when Ash learns about The Tenth, a new and deadly concentration camp where the Darklings would be sent, the choice doesn’t seem so simple. Unable to ignore his conscience, Ash votes against Rose’s Law, signing Natalie’s death warrant and putting a troubled nation back into the throes of bloody battle.

Why I’m Waiting

I really enjoyed Black City! It was one of those books that after I was done reading I continued to wonder what was going to happen to the characters now. I can’t wait to see what twist and turns Elizabeth Richards has her characters go through in Phoenix.

Happy Wednesday!
