WoW: Horizon

 
"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Aluna and Hoku, Kampii from the City of Shifting Tides, and their friends, Equian Dash and winged Aviar Calli, are determined to stop a war. The maniacal ex-scientist Karl Strand is planning to conquer the world with his enormous army of tech-enhanced soldiers . . . unless the four friends can get to Strand first. Aluna’s plan is dangerous: pose as Upgraders and infiltrate the army. But the enemy isn’t what they expected and the strategy begins to crumble. When the friends are torn apart by conflicting allegiances, their slim chance of avoiding war seems to disappear completely. For Aluna and Hoku, what began as a quest to save their own people has become a mission to save the world. But do Aluna and her friends have any hope of defeating Strand if they can’t take him on together?

Let's all take a moment ot pause and admire the gorgeous cover, which just happens to be my favorite color. 

That synopsis has me rather stressed out. I just love all four of these main characters so much. I will be totally unable to choose sides if they split up. I can't believe I still have months to wait before I can experience this one. In the meantime I will reread Above World (my thoughts) and Mirage (my thoughts).


Horizon will be available on April 8.

    1. Yeah…it's better read when you've read ABOVE WORLD. Maybe when Cybils is over you can give it a go from the beginning. :)
