Can't Wait Wednesday (114)

Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings to spotlight highly anticipated books.  It is based on the Waiting on Wednesday meme which used to be hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.







FROM GOODREADS:  Everyone in Vallen knows that ice wolves and scorch dragons are sworn enemies who live deeply separate lives.

So when twelve-year-old orphan Anders takes one elemental form and his twin sister, Rayna, takes another, he has to question whether they are even related. Still, whether or not they’re family, Anders knows that Rayna is his best and only true friend. She’s nothing like the brutal, cruel dragons who claimed her as one of their own and stole her away.

To learn what he needs to rescue her, Anders will have to enlist at the foreboding Ulfar Academy, a school for young wolves that values loyalty to the pack above all else. But for Anders, loyalty is more complicated than blind obedience, and friendship is the most powerful shape-shifting force of all.

New York Times bestselling author Amie Kaufman delivers heart-pounding adventure and breathtaking magical inventions in this unforgettable story about finding one’s place in a sharply divided world.


WHY I CAN'T WAIT:  First of all, I've heard lots of good things about the author, Amie Kaufman.  Secondly, that cover (actually that should probably be first).  And last but not least, I love wolves and can't wait to learn more about a school for young wolves.

WHAT BOOK CAN'T YOU WAIT FOR THIS WEEK???

    1. I know. Although it seems like it might be obvious, I mean even Game of Thrones has dragons and wolves, I don't recall seeing the combination a lot in books.

  18. I've also been curious about Amie Kaufman's books lately, I don't think I've read anything by her that she's written solo yet. This looks like a good place to start :)

  23. This one is unfamiliar to me (probably because I don't tend to read MG), but I hope you enjoy, Barb! Always fun to anticipate a new book. Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland. :)
