Waiting on Wednesday #87: Salt & Stone

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...


Salt & Stone by Victoria Scott


Title: Salt & Stone (Fire & Flood #2)
Author: Victoria Scott

Release date: February 24th 2015
Publisher: Scholastic Press
Genre: Young Adult Science Fiction

What would you do to save someone you love?

In Fire & Flood, Tella Holloway faced a dangerous trek through the jungle and across the desert, all to remain a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed for a chance at obtaining the Cure for her brother. She can't quit--she has to win the race, save Cody, and then fight to make sure the race stops before it can claim any more lives. In the next legs of the race, across the ocean and over mountains, Tella will face frostbite, sharks, avalanche, and twisted new rules in the race.

But what if the danger is deeper than that? How do you know who to trust when everyone's keeping secrets? What do you do when the person you'd relied on most suddenly isn't there for support? How do you weigh one life against another?

The race is coming to an end, and Tella is running out of time, resources, and strength. At the start of the race there were one hundred twenty-two Contenders. As Tella and her remaining friends start the final part of the race, just forty-one are left--and only one can win.

Oh my gosh, don't you adore that cover? I know I do! I really can't wait to get my hands on this. I loved Fire & Flood - it has such a great premise and some pretty awesome characters. And V's writing is just amazing. So yeah, this one's gonna be good!
