Waiting on Wednesday #5

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine which showcases books that I’m just dying to read!

Expected publication: October 18th 2011 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Ethan Wate thought he was getting used to the strange, impossible events happening in Gatlin, his small Southern town. But now that Ethan and Lena have returned home, strange and impossible have taken on new meanings. Swarms of locusts, record-breaking heat, and devastating storms ravage Gatlin as Ethan and Lena struggle to understand the impact of Lena’s Claiming. Even Lena’s family of powerful Supernaturals is affected – and their abilities begin to dangerously misfire. As time passes, one question becomes clear: What – or who – will need to be sacrificed to save Gatlin?

For Ethan, the chaos is a frightening but welcome distraction. He’s being haunted in his dreams again, but this time it isn’t by Lena – and whatever is haunting him is following him out of his dreams and into his everyday life. Even worse, Ethan is gradually losing pieces of himself – forgetting names, phone numbers, even memories. He doesn’t know why, and most days he’s too afraid to ask.
Sometimes there isn’t just one answer or one choice. Sometimes there’s no going back. And this time there won’t be a happy ending.


*chews nails* Oh man. The synopsis sounds so ominous, isn’t it? I’m simultaneously scared and excited to read this third instalment to the Caster Chronicles series. I just want my boy Ethan to have a moment of peace. But I guess, if you live in mystical Gatlin, it’s just too much to ask.
