Waiting on Wednesday #73: Earthquake

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...

Earthquake by Aprilynne Pike

Title: Earthquake (Earthbound #2)
Author: Aprilynne Pike
Release date: July 8th 2014
Publisher: Razorbill
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal

Tavia Michaels has discovered that she’s an Earthbound—a fallen goddess with the power to remake the Earth—and that a rival faction of Earthbounds, the Reduciata, has created a virus that is literally wiping swaths of the planet out of existence.

Tavia is captured and imprisoned before she can act on this information, along with her eternal lover, Logan. Huddled in a claustrophobic cell, they lose track of the days, their attempts to escape proving as ephemeral as Tavia’s newly gestating powers. But then Tavia and Logan are mysteriously rescued. . . .

They’re brought to the underground headquarters of the Curatoria, another group of Earthbounds that Tavia doesn’t fully trust. There, she’s told that she can save the Earth before it disappears. She agrees.

Tavia quickly realizes that she isn’t like other Earthbound, and as her abilities continue to awaken, they begin to threaten her centuries-long relationship with Logan. When Benson—Tavia’s former best friend and romantic interest—appears at Curatoria headquarters, Tavia will again have to make a choice about who to be with even as she tries to stop the virus that is destroying the world and uncover the truth about the two Earthbound organizations that have her tangled up in their webs.

Wow I can't remember much at all about the first book, Earthbound, but I do know that I loved it. And I love Pike's writing. So though I will definitely need a re-read before starting this, I'm really looking forward to it! Just a couple of weeks left (Y)


  1. This one sounds interesting! I'll watch for it.
    Here's my WoW!

  2. Okay, confession: I didn't really like Earthbound, don't know why, just something about it that annoyed me, but I still do want to see where it goes. :)
