Waiting on Wednesday (2): Plague

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted at Breaking the Spine http://breakingthespine.blogspot.com/ where bloggers share what yet-to-be-released book they absolutely cannot wait to read. 

161 days, 6 hours, 21 minutes, 5 seconds and counting down until the release of.... 
PLAGUE, The Fourth Book in the Gone Series By Micheal Grant!!!

Synopsis (from Goodreads.com): This is a blood-pumping, white-knuckle sci-fi thriller of epic proportions. The FAYZ goes from bad to worse...The darkness has been foiled once again and the resurrected Drake has been contained. But the streets of Perdido Beach are far from safe, with a growing army of mutants fighting against the humans for power in the town. In a small room of a house near the edge of town, Little Pete lies ill on a bed. In his fevered dreams, he continues his battle with the hidden evil that seeks to use his power to bring about anarchy and destruction. 

The Gone books: Gone, Hunger, and Lies, make up one of my favorite all-time series.  Every single one of them are awesome-- you know how some series start out brilliant and end up mediocre?-- well, the latest book in the Gone series-- Lies-- is every bit as thrilling and all together incredible as the first book!  It's discouraging and unbelievably exciting at once to think that I still have to wait until APRIL 5TH, 2011 to read Plague.  But I know it will be well-worth the wait!  If you haven't read the Gone series, then go and read them NOW, so you'll be as anxious to read the next installment as I am. :)

I saw on Goodreads that #6 is planned.

I can't wait to get my hands on this series, it seems to fly under the radar a lot, have you noticed?

I am just WOWing over the cover of Janet Fox’s new book, Forgiven, check it out on my blog!

Yes, the Gone series doesn't seem to get nearly as much press as it deserves. :/ I'm not really sure why... maybe promotion?

Kirsty-- thanks for following! Can't wait to check out both of your blogs.

I LOVE THE GONE SERIES!!!
But you can always tell that some new character in the beginning of the book will be killed at the end, dying as a hero. As long as it's not Sam or Brianna, I won't complain! ;D
