Waiting on Wednesday- July 28, 2010

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Ascendandt (Killer Unicorns #2)
by Diana Peterfreund
Publication Release Date: September 28, 2010

From Goodreads:

Now a fully trained unicorn hunter, Astrid Llewelyn is learning that she can’t solve all her problems with a bow and arrow. Her boyfriend has left Rome, the Cloisters is in dire financial straits, her best friend’s powers are mysteriously disintegrating, and her hope of becoming a scientist seems to be nothing but an impossible dream.

So when she’s given the opportunity to leave the Cloisters and use her skills as part of a scientific quest to discover the Remedy, Astrid leaps at the chance. Finally, she can have exactly what she wants—or can she? At Gordian headquarters deep in France, Astrid begins to question everything she had believed: her love for Giovanni, her loyalty to the Cloisters, and—most of all—her duty as a hunter. Should Astrid be saving the world from killer unicorns or saving unicorns from the world?


  1. Thanks for dropping by my blog! I'm so glad to hear that Matched lives up to all the hype :)

  2. Oooo! I like the look/sound of this one! I haven't heard of it before, but will definitely be checking it out. BTW I love your background!

  3. I just check Rampant out from the library! I haven't read it yet, but it's great to hear it's a series.

  4. I finished this the other day. I wasn't as impressed with it as I was Rampant. Rampant rocked and this one felt like a filler episode. :( I still enjoyed it but I didn't feel like we got anywhere really.
