Waiting on Wednesday - A Whole New Walking Dead, Baby!

Welcome to Waiting on Wednesday, a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spines. This meme is to talk about the books you just can not wait for to come out! This week I'm waiting on...

Title: Bright Smoke, Cold Fire
Author: Rosamund Hodge
Genre: Young Adult, Mental Health
Release Date: September 27th, 2016
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
When the mysterious fog of the Ruining crept over the world, the living died and the dead rose. Only the walled city of Viyara was left untouched. The heirs of the city’s most powerful—and warring—families, Mahyanai Romeo and Juliet Catresou share a love deeper than duty, honor, even life itself. But the magic laid on Juliet at birth compels her to punish the enemies of her clan—and Romeo has just killed her cousin Tybalt. Which means he must die. Paris Catresou has always wanted to serve his family by guarding Juliet. But when his ward tries to escape her fate, magic goes terribly wrong—killing her and leaving Paris bound to Romeo. If he wants to discover the truth of what happened, Paris must delve deep into the city, ally with his worst enemy . . . and perhaps turn against his own clan. Mahyanai Runajo just wants to protect her city—but she’s the only one who believes it’s in peril. In her desperate hunt for information, she accidentally pulls Juliet from the mouth of death—and finds herself bound to the bitter, angry girl. Runajo quickly discovers Juliet might be the one person who can help her recover the secret to saving Viyara. Both pairs will find friendship where they least expect it. Both will find that Viyara holds more secrets and dangers than anyone ever expected. And outside the walls, death is waiting.

The other day, I had stumbled upon a tweet of Rosamund's cover reveal for her upcoming novel, Bright Smoke, Cold Fire and let me tell you...I was definitely not expecting this! I absolutely love the font style, the women surrounding the circle and everything else on this cover. A huge round of applause from me to the cover artist because this one looks fantastic! I have yet to get the chance to read one of Rosamund's novels before, but this one will certainly be on my bookshelf the minute it hits shelves! From the intriguing synopsis to the outstanding cover, is it really any wonder why I'm anxious for the release date? Long story short...I need September to come quicker because I need this book like I need air!

So there you have it! What are your thoughts on this upcoming title? What are you waiting on this week? Let me know down in the comments below and feel free to leave the links to your WOW posts!

Happy reading!
