Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish event hosted by Breaking the Spine. This is a meme that many book blogs participate in to goggle over highly anticipated upcoming releases and fabulous covers and authors!
Here's our blogging meme of the week! Today's WOW is Fire & Flood by Victoria Scott, the first book to her new series with the title name. I totally fell in love with her after reading The Liberator, and I can't wait to see how this book plays out!
Tella Holloway is losing it. Her brother is sick, and when a dozen doctors can't determine what's wrong, her parents decide to move to Montana for the fresh air. She's lost her friends, her parents are driving her crazy, her brother is dying—and she's helpless to change anything.
Until she receives mysterious instructions on how to become a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed. It's an epic race across jungle, desert, ocean, and mountain that could win her the prize she desperately desires: the Cure for her brother's illness. But all the Contenders are after the Cure for people they love, and there's no guarantee that Tella (or any of them) will survive the race.
The jungle is terrifying, the clock is ticking, and Tella knows she can't trust the allies she makes. And one big question emerges: Why have so many fallen sick in the first place?
I really haven't been keeping up-to-date with this book, but I was looking through my to-read list on G-reads and found this book to be coming out this month! That's right, Fire & Flood will be released on February 25th, less than 3 weeks away.
Fire & Flood by description sounds like a daunting adventure and perhaps with a slight dystopian edge. I definitely will be trying to get my hands on a copy of this series debut as soon as it is out!
