Waiting on Wednesday (#93): Unleashed by Sophie Jordan


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


This week, I'm featuring:


Unleashed by Sophie Jordan
Book Two of the Uninvited series
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication Date: February 24, 2015

Summary (from Goodreads):

What if the worst thing you ever did was unforgivable?

Davy’s world fell apart after she tested positive for Homicidal Tendency Syndrome. She was expelled from her school, dumped by her boyfriend, abandoned by friends, and shipped off to a camp that turns HTS carriers into soldiers. Davy may have escaped, but the damage has already been done. The unthinkable has happened. Now, even worse than having everyone else see her as a monster is the knowledge that they may have been right about her all along. Because Davy has killed.

On the run from government agents, Davy is rescued by Caden, the charismatic leader of an underground group of rebels. Despite Caden’s assurances that the Resistance is made up of carriers like her, Davy isn't sure she can trust them. Then again, she doesn't even know if she can trust herself . . . or her growing feelings for Caden. But if she doesn't belong with Caden and his followers, is there anywhere she can call home?



Hmm, I'm getting a weird vibe about the romance... but other than that, I really enjoyed the first book, so I'm excited about the sequel!

  9. I loved Uninvited and was excited to read Unleashed until I read the summary. Where the heck is Sean? This angers me so much especially because this is the last book in a duology. Why would you even think of having a love triangle in the final book? Seems really silly to me. I'm going to wait to read reviews before I pick it up.
    I hope you'll enjoy it! :)
