Waiting on Wednesday #32: Daughter of Deep Silence & Deadfall

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.



This week, I'm waiting on...


Daughter of Deep Silence
Hardcover, 384 pages
Expected publication: June 2nd 2015 by Dutton Books for Young Readers
Genre: YA - Contemporary Thriller



In the wake of the deadly devastation of the luxury yacht Persephone, just three souls remain to tell its story—and two of them are lying. Only Frances Mace, rescued from the ocean after torturous days adrift with her dying friend Libby, knows that the Persephone wasn’t sunk by a rogue wave as survivors Senator Wells and his son, Grey, are claiming—it was attacked.

To ensure her safety from the obviously dangerous and very power­ful Wells family, Libby’s father helps newly orphaned Frances assume Libby’s identity. After years of careful plotting, she’s ready to expose the truth and set her revenge plans into motion—even if it means taking down the boy she’d once been in love with: Grey Wells himself.

Sharp and incisive, Daughter of Deep Silence by Carrie Ryan is a deliciously smart revenge thriller that examines perceptions of identity, love, and the lengths to which one girl is willing to go when she thinks she has nothing to lose. 

It's been a while since Carrie has had a book come out and I am so excited about this one. I meet author last October along with Kami Garcia and I must say both of them were wonderful! :)  I can't wait to read this new one soon!




Hillary's is waiting on....


Deadfall by Anna Carey
Series: Blackbird Duology #2 
Number of Pages: 256
Expected publication: June 16th 2015 by Harper Teen
Genre: YA - Mystery/Thriller


In the compelling sequel to Blackbird, Anna Carey delivers a gritty and adrenaline-filled story of a girl desperate to escape her mysterious and terrifying assailants. Told in second person, this heart-pounding thriller puts the reader in front of the target.

A week ago, you woke up in Los Angeles with no memory of who you are. The only thing you knew: people are trying to kill you. You put your trust in Ben, but he betrayed you and broke your heart. Now you've escaped to New York City with a boy named Rafe, who says he remembers you from before. But the two of you are not safe. The same people who are after you are tailing Rafe as well. As the chase heats up, your memory starts to return, but your past cannot save you from the terrifying circumstances of your present, or the fact that one wrong move could end this game forever. 

With enemies on every side, and not a reprieve in sight, Deadfall will grab readers and refuse to let go. Perfect for fans of the Maze Runner series and the Legend series.
Note from Hillary:
I still haven’t read Blackbird or any of Anna Carey’s other books, but when I saw the cover for Deadfall, I basically moved the priority of this duology up on my tbr books. I’m impressed with how well both covers complement each other.
