“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by the fantastic people over at Breaking The Spine that highlights upcoming releases that we are excited about.
For this week my pre-publication selection that I can’t wait for is:
Illusive by Emily Lloyd-Jones
Set For Release On: July 15th, 2014
Summary From Goodreads:
When the MK virus swept across the planet, a vaccine was created to stop the epidemic, but it came with some unexpected side effects. A small percentage of the population developed superhero-like powers. Seventeen-year-old Ciere Giba has the handy ability to change her appearance at will. She’s what’s known as an illusionist…She’s also a thief.
After a robbery goes awry, Ciere must team up with a group of fellow super-powered criminals on another job that most would consider too reckless. The formula for the vaccine that gave them their abilities was supposedly destroyed years ago. But what if it wasn’t?
The lines between good and bad, us and them, and freedom and entrapment are blurred as Ciere and the rest of her crew become embroiled in a deadly race against he government that could cost them their lives.
I need more superhero books in my life, and Illusive sounds fantastic, so I’m hoping it can fill that void. However, it isn’t released until the summer of next year so I’ve got a LONG time to wait! *flails* This is a debut novel for Emily Lloyd-Jones, but I have high hopes for it and its definitely one of my most anticipated debuts for 2014. Plus, female shapeshifter MC? Sign me up!
Does Illusive appeal to you? Had you heard of it before (since it is a debut)? What book are you “Waiting On”? Let me know in the comments and/or leave a link to your own WoW post and I will make sure to stop by! Thanks for checking out my Waiting On Wednesday! ^.^
