Waiting on Wednesday #84

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spines. This is a cool way to spotlight a upcoming release that you're anxious about, as well as checking out what other book lovers are anticipating as well. So, check out my WoW for this week:

10726280Winter Falls (Twin Willows #1)
by Nicole Maggi
Release date: December 2014
Publisher: Medallion Press

Synopsis via Goodreads:

Alessia Jacobs is a typical sixteen-year-old, dying to get out of her small town of Twin Willows, Maine. Things look up when a new family comes to town, but when she falls for the hot, mysterious son, Jonah, her life turns upside down. 

Weird visions of transforming into an otherworldly falcon are just the beginning. Soon she learns she’s part of the Benandanti, an ancient cult of warriors with the unique power to separate their souls from their bodies and take on the forms of magnificent animals. 

Alessia never would’ve suspected it, but her boring town is the site of an epic struggle between the Benandanti and the Malandanti to control powerful magic in the surrounding forest. 

As Alessia is drawn into the Benandanti’s mission, her relationship with Jonah intensifies. When her two worlds collide, Alessia’s forced to weigh choices a sixteen-year-old should never have to make.

Why I'm Waiting

I've been waiting for what seems like forever to get Ashes to Ashes in my hands. I'm really curious how this story is going to end, now that certain people have figured out the truth about their existence or lack thereof. I truly hope I won't be disappointed by the conclusion because the second book kind of fell flat for me.
As for Winter Falls, I haven't read young adult fantasy in a while so I'm really interested in picking this one up when it comes out because I like the idea of shapeshifters. And I'm intrigued by the premise; the idea of being part of an ancient line of warriors has me sold. Hopefully the story is good.

What are you waiting for?
