Waiting on Wednesday (#216): The Keep of Ages by Caragh O'Brien


"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:


The Keep of Ages by Caragh O'Brien
Book Three of The Vault of Dreamers series
Publisher: Roaring Brook Press
Publication Date: August 29, 2017

Summary (from Goodreads):

In the fast-paced, high-stakes conclusion to the Vault of Dreamers trilogy, Rosie travels to a derelict theme park to shut down dream mining once and for all.

Determined to expose Dean Berg's dream mining operation to the world, and desperate to find her suddenly missing family, Rosie follows a series of clues across the country, where she discovers a derelict, horror-themed amusement park hiding a labyrinth of tunnels beneath its grounds. There, Rosie uncovers the vault, where her sister sleeps among the dreamers she is determined to set free. Meanwhile, nefarious subliminal messaging embedded within the Forge Show poses a danger to all who watch. And Rosie discovers the terrifying implications of mining and unlocking the consciousness of countless victims.

Propulsive and deeply speculative, The Keep of Ages concludes the Vault of Dreamers trilogy by taking readers on a wild and satisfying ride. 




I've enjoyed the series so far, so I'm definitely looking forward to seeing how things end!

    1. I read that one too! I don't remember enjoying it like I'm enjoying these books - but I was really young when I read Birthmarked, so I don't know if that played into my opinion of the book. I think this one will be good!
