Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It showcases each blogger's most anticipated books. This week, my pick is Innocent Darkness (The Aether Chronicles #1) by Suzanne Lazear.

Summary: Wish. Love. Desire. Live.

Sixteen-year-old Noli Braddock's hoyden ways land her in an abusive reform school far from home. On mid-summer's eve she wishes to be anyplace but that dreadful school. A mysterious man from the Realm of Faerie rescues her and brings her to the Otherworld, only to reveal that she must be sacrificed, otherwise, the entire Otherworld civilization will perish.

Why I Can't Wait: What first drew me to the book, of course, was the cover. I was super excited to see the cover reveal on Suzanne's blog and fell in love with it instantly. Then, I read the summary. Whoa. Steampunk is quickly becoming one of my favorite genres and though the concept sounds a bit Vampire Diaries to me (Elena must die for the curse to be broken!), I still love it. Plus, FAERIE?! EEEP! I love the fey! Sadly, it looks like we have a really long wait until the release. *Wails*

Expected publication: August 8th 2012 by Flux


  1. ooh, this sounds really good. And your right the cover is gorgeous, steampunk is starting to grow on me too! I really need to read this one.

  6. I am not a huge Steampunk fan, but kids will be all over this one!


  7. So it's faerie AND steampunk?! Awesome!! I'm all over it!! :D Great pick, Lena!!

  8. I have never heard of this book, interesting, thanks to Leviathan I am fan of steampunk well I was a fan before because of the awesome outfits but that's besides the point. I do like the cover (minus the sparkles) but the premise I am still on the fence about. I look forward to your review! See if you can get someone to snag you a copy at BEA maybe if the arc will be out by then?
