Waiting on Wednesday (22)

Saba is ready to seize her destiny and defeat DeMalo and the Tonton...until she meets him and he confounds all her expectations with his seductive vision of a healed earth, a New Eden. DeMalo wants Saba to join him, in life and work, to create and build a healthy, stable, sustainable world…for the chosen few. The few who can pay.

Jack’s choice is clear: to fight DeMalo and try to stop New Eden. Still uncertain, her connection with DeMalo a secret, Saba commits herself to the fight. Joined by her brother, Lugh, anxious for the land in New Eden, Saba leads an inexperienced guerilla band against the powerfully charismatic DeMalo, in command of his settlers and the Tonton militia. What chance do they have? Saba must act. And be willing to pay the price.
Coming May 13th, Rising Star concludes Moira Young's clearly awesomesauce series.  This means I have from now till May to finish the second book -- to start it, really.  *avoids reading summary while copying and pasting for fear of spoilers*  I am loving these covers, aren't you?  Though I blanch at seeing -- once again -- another Hunger Games reference, positive or negative.  OY.

Let me know in the comments what it is you're looking forward to this Wednesday.  (Okay, fine, here's a cookie.  Comment already.)
