"Waiting on" Wednesday #1


"Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we have the opportunity to let others know about books that we are eagerly waiting for."

My choice for Waiting on Wednesday this week is...

Frozen: Heart of Dread
By Melissa Del La Cruz and Michael Johnston

Coming Out: September 17th, 2013

"Welcome to New Vegas, a city once covered in bling, now blanketed in ice. Like much of the destroyed planet, the place knows only one temperature—freezing. But some things never change. The diamond in the ice desert is still a 24-hour hedonistic playground and nothing keeps the crowds away from the casino floors, never mind the rumors about sinister sorcery in its shadows.

At the heart of this city is Natasha Kestal, a young blackjack dealer looking for a way out. Like many, she's heard of a mythical land simply called “the Blue.” They say it’s a paradise, where the sun still shines and the waters are turquoise. More importantly, it’s a place where Nat won’t be persecuted, even if her darkest secret comes to light.

But passage to the Blue is treacherous, if not impossible, and her only shot is to bet on a ragtag crew of mercenaries led by a cocky runner named Ryan Wesson to take her there. Danger and deceit await on every corner, even as Nat and Wes find themselves inexorably drawn to each other. But can true love survive the lies? Fiery hearts collide in this fantastic tale of the evil men do and the awesome power within us all."

I choose this book because it looks great! First the cover is beautiful, who doesn't like a pretty girl who looks down right frozen, second I am a huge fan of dystopian type books and this one looks like such a wonderful concept I just couldn't pass it up. Lastly I am a fan of romance and this looks like it will have a healthy helping of romance to deliver!

  7. It does sound interesting. And it's reassuring to think that after something like WWIII or the Zombie Apocalypse occurs, Vegas will still be going strong for all the remaining gamblers out there - LOL
