Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can’t wait to read. This week I’m excited for…
Meridian by Joisin McQuein
Marina thought that she had solved all of the Arclight’s mysteries. She had found her own history—that she was one of the Fade, that she never should have been human. She knows that the Fade who surround the Arclight don’t want to be the humans’ enemies at all. She knows that the leader of those inside the Arc, Honoria Whit, never told the whole truth. But there is so much more that Marina is just discovering. There are more survivors out there. Only Marina—and her friends, all of whom have connections to the Fade they’d never known about—can lead her people to them. But there are also darker dangers, things that even the Fade fear. And Marina slowly realizes she may never have been “cured,” after all. The sequel to Arclight, Meridian is an intense, action-packed page-turner about the lines we draw between right and wrong, light and dark . . . and the way nothing is ever that black and white.
Even though I didn’t always know what was going on, I loved Arclight and have been waiting to hear more about the rest of the series ever since I read it over the summer. Arclight was addictive and vividly written, and really surprised me because it hadn’t been on my original list of debuts to read. I was super psyched when the cover for Meridian was revealed last week, and I’m happy to share it with you today!
I’m also really excited to start reading Joisin L. McQuein’s other 2013 release, Premeditated, which I checked out from the library a couple days ago. **Joisin L. McQuein book shimmy**
