Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and is a fun way for bloggers to share the books they’re excited about. I believe the cover for this book was just revealed, which is why I chose this book:
The Outside by Laura Bickle (The Hallowed Ones #2). Release date: September 3 2013 (Harcourt Children’s Books). Talk about atmospheric! Doesn’t this book look creepy? I have to admit, I still have not read The Hallowed Ones, but it’s sitting on a pile of books, ready to jump to the top! I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about it, and I’m so looking forward to reading it soon. Here’s the description of Book #2 in the series:
After a plague of vampires is unleashed in the world, Katie is kicked out of her Amish community for her refusal to adhere to the new rules of survival. Now in exile, she enters an outside world of unspeakable violence with only her two “English” friends and a horse by her side. Together they seek answers and other survivors—but each sunset brings the threat of vampire attack, and each sunrise the threat of starvation.
And yet through this darkness come the shining ones: luminescent men and women with the power to deflect vampires and survive the night. But can these new people be trusted, and are they even people at all?
In this edge-of-your-seat thriller, it’s up to one Amish girl to save her family, her community, and the boy she loves . . . but what will she be asked to leave behind in return?
I’m dying to see how the author combines the Amish and vampires! Wow, don’t you want to the read these books? Has anyone read The Hallowed Ones yet?
