Waiting on Wednesday #107: The Isle

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...


The Isle by Jordana Frankel


Title: The Isle (The Ward #2)
Author: Jordana Frankel

Release date: January 19th 2016
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Genre: Young Adult Dystopian

The heart-racing and thrilling sequel to The Ward about a teenage female drag racer who will do anything to save her sister—and a flooded futuristic Manhattan.

Drought season is coming....

The Ward is in trouble—its streets filled with seawater after a devastating flood and its impoverished inhabitants suffering from a deadly disease called the Blight.

Ren, with the help of her scientist friend, Callum, and her racing buddy, Derek, has discovered a cure—miraculous spring water—administering it to her sick sister, Aven. But when Aven is kidnapped by Governor Voss, the malevolent dictator of the United Metro Isles (UMI), Ren must go on a dangerous mission to save her sister, again.

The mysterious healing water is the only source of freshwater throughout the entire UMI—water that Ren had been tasked by the government to discover. Although she refuses to give up the water’s location, Governor Voss has his own selfish reasons for wanting it. And he will do anything to satisfy his thirst for unquenchable power.

But Ren and Aven have more enemies than the governor. An ancient order, the Tètai, has been guarding the magical water for hundreds of years. And they will kill to protect it. With the Ward in desperate need of freshwater and wracked by disease—and deadly enemies at every turn—the sisters face a dangerous journey, marred by mysterious secrets and horrifying truths, to save their friends and neighbors, and a city.

Finally this book will be in our hands soon! The Ward was among the first physical ARCs I received, so it released quite a while ago and I've been waiting for this ever since. I loved the first book (and will definitely need a reread) so I'm super stoked for this one.

  1. I don't think I've heard of this one! Is it the sequel to The Ward? I thought that book was just okay. Man, it's been so long since I've read The Ward! I hope you enjoy this book when you read it!

    Have a fabulous week, Richa :)
