Waiting on Wednesday (#167): Witch's Pyre by Josephine Angelini


"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:


Witch's Pyre by Josephine Angelini
Book Three of the Worldwalker trilogy
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends
Publication Date: September 20, 2016

Summary (from Goodreads):

Lily Proctor has come a long way from the weak, sickly girl she used to be. She has gained power as a witch and a leader, found her way home, chosen to face battle again, and (after losing her first love and being betrayed by her new love) she has learned more about loss and grief than she ever wanted to know.

Thrust once again into a society different from anything they have ever seen, Lily and her coven are determined to find answers―to find a new path to victory, a way to defeat the monstrous Woven without resorting to nuclear weapons or becoming a tyrannical mass murderer like her alternate self, Lillian. But sometimes winning requires sacrifices . . . and when the only clear path to victory lies at Lillian's side, what price will Lily be willing to pay?

Internationally bestselling author Josephine Angelini takes us on another emotionally wrenching thrill ride in the stunning conclusion to her Worldwalker Trilogy.




I liked book one a lot, but wasn't satisfied with book two at all - so I can't wait to see how this series ends!

  2. Eeek, your post is a subtle reminder to me that I haven't read book 2 yet!! And I adored book one---what is wrong with me!! I had heard that book 2 was not great, but this is definitely a series I want to finish someday. Great pick, Alyssa! :D
