Waiting on Wednesday- Elementals by Antony John
"A mysterious and powerful fantasy adventure from a Schneider Award winner
In the near future, most of the population of the United States has been destroyed by the plague. The few remaining survivors live in colonies on the barrier islands off the East Coast. In one colony near Cape Hatteras, almost all the members have elemental powers and can control wind, water, earth, and fire. All but sixteen-year-old Thomas. When the Guardians, the powerful adult leaders, are kidnapped by pirates seeking to take over their colony, it is up to Thomas and a small group of teens to save them and preserve the mysteries of the island.
Fast action, strategy, and mystery churn together into a bold and fresh fantasy from an award-winning author."- summary from GoodReads
Why I Want to Read This: I have yet to read Antony John's books though I have ARCs of his first two books but all of them, including this upcoming one, sounds absolutely amazing. It's a departure from his first two, which were contemporary stories, so I'm interested to see how he handles this. Between now and November though, when the book releases, I'm gonna have to get around to his first two books.
Is anyone else looking forward to this? If not, what are you waiting on this week?
I'm a 28 year old male who started a book blog over on Myspace back in June 2007. I have since moved completely to Blogspot as of July 2009- feel free to follow me on here! I mainly review YA books, but will also do the occasional MG or adult title, as well as interview authors and sometimes have them guest blog.
