Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, where we book bloggers talk about upcoming releases we are excited for. This week I'm looking forward to:
The Unbound (The Archived #2)
Formats: Hardcover, eBook
Age Group: YA
Expected Publication: January 28, 2014
Imagine a place where the dead rest on shelves like books. Each body has a story to tell, a life seen in pictures that only Librarians can read. The dead are called Histories, and the vast realm in which they rest is the Archive.
Last summer, Mackenzie Bishop, a Keeper tasked with stopping violent Histories from escaping the Archive, almost lost her life to one. Now, as she starts her junior year at Hyde School, she's struggling to get her life back. But moving on isn't easy -- not when her dreams are haunted by what happened. She knows the past is past, knows it cannot hurt her, but it feels so real, and when her nightmares begin to creep into her waking hours, she starts to wonder if she's really safe.
Meanwhile, people are vanishing without a trace, and the only thing they seem to have in common is Mackenzie. She's sure the Archive knows more than they are letting on, but before she can prove it, she becomes the prime suspect. And unless Mac can track down the real culprit, she'll lose everything, not only her role as Keeper, but her memories, and even her life. Can Mackenzie untangle the mystery before she herself unravels?
With stunning prose and a captivating mixture of action, romance, and horror, The Unbound delves into a richly imagined world where no choice is easy and love and loss feel like two sides of the same coin.
I'm sure I've had this as my Waiting on Wednesday before, but The Unbound is coming out in less than a week and I am so excited!!! I loved The Archived, as you all know, and I'm one of Victoria's keepers, so I'm just crazy pumped. I love her writing style, and the characters, and the uniqueness of the world Mackenzie lives in. I can't wait for more adventure in the Archive, and more Wesley with his guyliner.
The cover is just so pretty. I'm gonna wear my key necklace when I go buy it and everything. Eeeep!!! :D
