Waiting on Wednesday #64: Invaded

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick for this week's WoW is...

Invaded by Melissa Landers

Title: Invaded (Alienated #2)
Author: Melissa Landers
Release date: February 3rd 2015
Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Genre: Young Adult Science Fiction

The romantic sequel to Alienated takes long-distance relationships to a new level as Cara and Aelyx long for each other from opposite ends of the universe...until a threat to both their worlds reunites them.

Cara always knew life on planet L’eihr would be an adjustment. With Aelyx, her L’eihr boyfriend, back on Earth, working to mend the broken alliance between their two planets, Cara is left to fend for herself at a new school, surrounded by hostile alien clones. Even the weird dorm pet hates her.

Things look up when Cara is appointed as human representative to a panel preparing for a human colony on L’eihr. A society melding their two cultures is a place where Cara and Aelyx could one day make a life together. But with L’eihr leaders balking at granting even the most basic freedoms, Cara begins to wonder if she could ever be happy on this planet, even with Aelyx by her side.

Meanwhile, on Earth, Aelyx, finds himself thrown into a full-scale PR campaign to improve human-L’eihr relations. Humans don’t know that their very survival depends on this alliance: only Aelyx’s people have the technology to fix the deadly contamination in the global water supply that human governments are hiding. Yet despite their upper hand, the leaders of his world suddenly seem desperate to get humans on their side, and hardly bat an eye at extremists’ multiple attempts on Aelyx’s life.

The Way clearly needs humans’ help . . . but with what? And what will they ask for in return?

Don't you guys adore this cover? Just as pretty as that of Alienated! I'm glad it was released this early. But it's depressing to think that there's almost a year for this book to come out! I loved the first book, and I'm pretty sure that will end up being among my top 2014 debuts. I can't wait to get back into this world!


  1. I can't read the synopsis because I haven't read the first book, but I want to! The cover is pretty darn gorgeous, though, and I've heard so many good things about the first book! I hope your wait goes by quickly! :) Great pick!

    My WoW!
