Waiting on Wednesday: Revelations

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

For this week I've chosen a sequel I've been thinking about for months.

Title: Revelations
Series: Elysium Chronicles, #2
Release date: November 5th 2013
Publisher: Tor Teen
Hardcover, 352 pages
Pre-order: The Book Depository

The follow-up to J. A. Souders’s riveting SF psychological thriller for teens, Renegade
Six weeks ago, Evelyn Winters was locked away in Elysium, a city hidden miles beneath the sea, brainwashed into submission. With the help of Gavin, she fought free of her captors and the fog in her own mind. He took her back with him to the Surface, a world she's never known. Now she will begin a new life.

But her past is closer than she thinks...

I adored the first book, contrary to my expectations, and I can't wait to see where Souders will take the story next. She is an excellent writer and an even better worldbuilder.

What are you guys excited about this week? Please leave me a link to your WoW post and I'll be right there.


  1. I remember seeing the first book around. I had no idea that there will be a sequel. I hope you'll enjoy it and that world-building won't disappoint you :) Great pick.

  2. That cover is eye-catching! I still need to read the first in this series. I didn't do a WOW this week but the book I am most waiting on is World After, the sequel to Angelfall. I feel like I've been waiting on that one forever.

  3. I want to get my hands on this as well :) I really enjoyed the first book and can't wait to see what the sequel has in store!

    My Haul!

  4. I really like the look of this!

    Awesome pick, Maja! <33

  7. Oh, I've also been waiting for this one since I read book 1, love the novella get also got shortly afterwards, but I can't wait to read more about the world and how Evelyn will deal with it all!

    My WoW:

  8. YES! I read nothing about this which was strange since there was a decent amount of hype/publicity about Renegade, but I'm hoping this is good. I really enjoyed the first one and am hoping there's no MBS issue with this. Great pick, Maja!(:

  9. I loved the first book as well and can't wait to see where the author is going to take the story. Plus, I really liked how things ended and I'm excited to see what happens to the characters.
    And, that cover is super pretty! :)
    Great pick, Maja! :)

  10. I've not read the first book--not sure I've heard of it. I'll be looking it up now--I love sci-fi.
