Waiting on Wednesday (8)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where book bloggers get together and spotlight what upcoming release we're most excited about!

Here's what I'm waiting on this week:

Elemental 

Release Date: November 21st, 2012
Author: Anthony John

A lost colony is reborn in this heart-pounding fantasy adventure set in the near future . . .

Sixteen-year-old Thomas has always been an outsider. The first child born without the power of an Element—earth, water, wind or fire—he has little to offer his tiny, remote Outer Banks colony. Or so the Guardians would have him believe.

In the wake of an unforeseen storm, desperate pirates kidnap the Guardians, intent on claiming the island as their own. Caught between the plague-ridden mainland and the advancing pirates, Thomas and his friends fight for survival in the battered remains of a mysterious abandoned settlement. But the secrets they unearth will turn Thomas’ world upside-down, and bring to light not only a treacherous past but also a future more dangerous than he can possibly imagine.



I am a HUGE fan of elemental magic so I was instantly attracted to this as soon as I started reading the synopsis.  Then I got to the bit about Pirates...Pirates!!! I love Pirates...so there's just no way I'm passing up a chance to check out this book. So far the reviews I've read have been between the 3 and 4 stars so I'm hopeful I'll enjoy this.


What are YOU waiting on this week?  Link me up below!

  9. Yeeahh, PIRATES! I must admit - the inclusion of pirates is a pretty significant part of my interest in this one. The elemental magic also reminds me of Avatar: The Last Airbender, which is a definite bonus, as well. I'm definitely looking forward to reading this one!!
