"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 Stars Never Rise by Rachel Vincent
Book One of an untitled series
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Publication Date: June 9, 2015
Summary (from Goodreads):
Sixteen-year-old Nina Kane should be worrying about her immortal soul, but she's too busy trying to actually survive. Her town's population has been decimated by soul-consuming demons, and souls are in short supply. Watching over her younger sister, Mellie, and scraping together food and money are all that matters. The two of them are a family. They gave up on their deadbeat mom a long time ago.
When Nina discovers that Mellie is keeping a secret that threatens their very existence, she'll do anything to protect her. Because in New Temperance, sins are prosecuted as crimes by the brutal Church and its army of black-robed exorcists. And Mellie's sin has put her in serious trouble.
To keep them both alive, Nina will need to trust Finn, a fugitive with deep green eyes who has already saved her life once and who might just be an exorcist. But what kind of exorcist wears a hoodie?
Wanted by the Church and hunted by dark forces, Nina knows she can't survive on her own. She needs Finn and his group of rogue friends just as much as they need her.

I've never read anything by this author, but there is a first time for everything! I think this one sounds... interesting. I try to stay away from religion-related novels, but again, this book intrigues me :O
I haven't read anything by her either, but this sounds good! I'm just wary of it being 7 books long like her last series. That's so much time in between each book. O_OReplyDelete
YES. I hate long series, so I hope this is a trilogy or less...Delete
I posted this one a few weeks back, so yeah, I'm looking forward to the release of this one too.ReplyDelete
Happy midweek. Hope it's a fab week.
I hope you love it! Thank you, Marilyn :)Delete

Thanks for stopping by my STS @ Addicted Readers! :)
Thank you, Alicia!Delete
I'm not one for religious-related things either, but gonna give this a shot most likely, too, although the Soul Screamers haven't rocked me out my shows thus far. But then again, I'm not done with them yet. ^^ReplyDelete
Nice pick! My WoW
Interesting to hear about the Soul Screamers - I probably won't be reading the series. Thank you!Delete
I like the sound of this one, the cover looks beautiful<3 Benish | Feminist ReflectionsReplyDelete
It is gorgeous indeed!Delete
Great pick! I can't wait to see how creepy this one turns out. I haven't encountered many books dealing with demons and exorcisms. I have it preordered but the wait is definitely a killer! Here's to be being worth the wait. I hope all is well! Xoxo
It's not my typical read, with the religious themes and the exorcisms and whatnot, and I will definitely be freaked out when I read this one, but I hope to read it!Delete
Thank you, Britt!
I've never read anything by this author either, but this book sounds very interesting and the cover is amazing. Love all the colors.ReplyDelete
Great pick and thanks for stopping by my blog!
I especially love the covers! You're very welcome, Aseel!Delete
