Waiting on Wednesday (145): Mortal Danger + Stitching Snow

And then I am suddenly busy, so I'm posting this a bit later than I wanted to. Anyway! Highlighting two book that I think sounds fab! They make me want to fast forward the days to release day so I can read them!

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Title: Mortal Danger (Immortal Game #1) by Ann Aguirre

Summary (from Goodreads):

Revenge is a dish best served cold.

Edie Kramer has a score to settle with the beautiful people at Blackbriar Academy. Their cruelty drove her to the brink of despair, and four months ago, she couldn't imagine being strong enough to face her senior year. But thanks to a Faustian compact with the enigmatic Kian, she has the power to make the bullies pay. She's not supposed to think about Kian once the deal is done, but devastating pain burns behind his unearthly beauty, and he's impossible to forget.

In one short summer, her entire life changes, and she sweeps through Blackbriar, prepped to take the beautiful people down from the inside. A whisper here, a look there, and suddenly... bad things are happening. It's a heady rush, seeing her tormentors get what they deserve, but things that seem too good to be true usually are, and soon, the pranks and payback turns from delicious to deadly. Edie is alone in a world teeming with secrets and fiends lurking in the shadows. In this murky morass of devil's bargains, she isn't sure who—or what--she can trust. Not even her own mind...

Why I'm waiting for Mortal Danger:

Because... uhm... Ann Aguirre? I've been a huge fan of her other YA series, Razorland, and this just makes me so excited that she has something new coming out soon! That cover looks creepily awesome! A lemniscate positioned sideways? Blood spatter? Color me curious! And I need to know more about this Kian. I love how deliciously dark this sounds, revenge, bullying, payback. It's like a complete recipe for disaster that just makes you so intrigued.


Title: Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis
Release Date: October 14th 2014
Published by: Disney-Hyperion

Summary (from Goodreads):

Princess Snow is missing.

Her home planet is filled with violence and corruption at the hands of King Matthias and his wife as they attempt to punish her captors. The king will stop at nothing to get his beloved daughter back-but that's assuming she wants to return at all.

Essie has grown used to being cold. Temperatures on the planet Thanda are always sub-zero, and she fills her days with coding and repairs for the seven loyal drones that run the local mines.

When a mysterious young man named Dane crash-lands near her home, Essie agrees to help the pilot repair his ship. But soon she realizes that Dane's arrival was far from accidental, and she's pulled into the heart of a war she's risked everything to avoid.

In her enthralling debut, R.C. Lewis weaves the tale of a princess on the run from painful secrets . . . and a poisonous queen. With the galaxy's future-and her own-in jeopardy, Essie must choose who to trust in a fiery fight for survival.

Why I'm waiting for Stitching Snow:

I love retellings! Marissa Meyer's Lunar Chronicles series is one of my favorites, and Stitching Snow reminds me of that. A futuristic retelling of Snow White involving androids, a tech savvy heroine and a Prince who pilots a space ship? It sounds really cool and unique even as I type it. I'm interested to know how creative the author had to be to be able to reinvent and write the story of Snow White like this.

  1. I'm greatly anticipating Mortal Danger, though this is the first I've heard of it, because this is a very very very interesting premise. It's definitely on my "to purchase" list.

    And then Stitching Snow? *flails* One of my favorite genres is fairy tale retellings. I loves it. I cannot wait for that to come out.

    This was a great WOW and if one of these shows up on one of my future WOW posts don't kill me!!
