Waiting on Wednesday (7)

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine which asks what book we're most looking forward to.

Escape from the realm of the dead is impossible when someone there wants you back. Seventeen-year-old Pierce Oliviera isn’t dead. But she is being held against her will in the dim, twilit world between heaven and hell, where the spirits of the deceased wait before embarking upon their final journey. Her captor, John Hayden, claims it’s for her own safety. Because not all the departed are dear. Some are so unhappy with where they ended up after leaving the Underworld, they’ve come back as Furies, intent on vengeance…on the one who sent them there and on the one whom he loves. But while Pierce might be safe from the Furies in the Underworld, far worse dangers could be lurking for her there…and they might have more to do with its ruler than with his enemies. And unless Pierce is careful, this time there’ll be no escape.

I'm going to come out and admit that I was disappointed by the first book in the Abandon trilogy. I won't go into detail because this isn't a review, BUT I thought it was a great set-up for the second book and am looking forward to Underworld immensely! I think of book one as a really long (kind of boring) prologue that introduces all of the fun stuff that will happen in the rest of the books. Can't wait for this one!

What book are you waiting for??
