Waiting On Wednesday #144: The Shadow Hour, by Melissa Grey

This is a weekly event hosted by
It showcases future releases which
we book bloggers
are eagerly anticipating!!

Here's my choice for this week!

The Shadow Hour
(The Girl At Midnight, Book 2)
Hardcover, 304 pages
Delacorte Press
July 12, 2016
Fantasy, Paranormal Fiction,
Young Adult Fiction

The much-anticipated sequel to the book Danielle Page, author of Dorothy Must Die, says is "inventive, gorgeous, and epic--Grey dazzles."

Everything in Echo's life changed in a blinding flash when she learned the startling truth: she is the firebird, the creature of light that is said to bring peace.

The firebird has come into the world, but it has not come alone. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction, and Echo can feel a great and terrible darkness rising in the distance. Cosmic forces threaten to tear the world apart.

Echo has already lost her home, her family, and her boyfriend. Now, as the firebird, her path is filled with even greater dangers than the ones she's already overcome.

She knows the Dragon Prince will not fall without a fight.

Echo must decide: can she wield the power of her true nature--or will it prove too strong for her, and burn what's left of her world to the ground?

Welcome to the shadow hour.

Why I'm waiting on this one!

Well, what can I say, except that The Girl At Midnight has been on my TBR since like.....forever, 
and now I want this one, too?
I know I have to catch up, but if I don't dream 
about this sequel, I might never get to
read it sometime in the future.....
Does that make sense?
No? Okay, so I just want it!  The hype is
just killing me!!!! 

What do you think of my choice?
