Waiting On Wednesday (1)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine where bloggers can discuss which books they are most anxious to read. Plus, this awesome button was created by Lindsay at The Violet Hour.

This week I'm waiting for Hades by Alexandra Adornetto, available in the U.S. on August 30th.
Hades (Halo, #2)Goodreads description:  Bethany and Xavier are even closer since battling Jake Thorn and his evil influence (in Halo) and Beth and her angel siblings must still protect Venus Cove from the Dark Forces.

When a party game – a séance – inadvertently releases Jake from the Underworld, he disguises himself and tricks Beth into taking a ride on his motorcycle. When the highway opens up and swallows them, Beth learns too late that she’s now a prisoner in hell. What happens to angels there? As her archangel brother, Gabriel, her sister Ivy, Xavier, and her best friend, Molly search for her, Beth must weigh Jake’s bargaining for her freedom: one night with him, and she will be released back to Earth.
Can Jake be trusted in this wager? And is he also using Beth to engineer the fall of the archangel Gabriel? Xavier has already lost one love – when Jake tricks him into thinking that Bethany is dead, his grief and anger result in a betrayal that will leave Bethany – and readers – wondering if he is so good after all.

It will be up to Beth to use everything she’s learned about her powers as an angel – and about love – to free herself and those she loves from the clutches of Hades.

Right now I'm re-reading Halo, the first in this series. Which means a review is soon to come.

I checked out the audiobook of Halo, so I can't wait to see what you think of it! :-)
