Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event which aims to shine a light on eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.
Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Release Date: March 13th 2018
Kady, Ezra, Hanna, and Nik narrowly escaped with their lives from the attacks on Heimdall station and now find themselves crammed with 2,000 refugees on the container ship, Mao. With the jump station destroyed and their resources scarce, the only option is to return to Kerenza—but who knows what they’ll find seven months after the invasion?
Meanwhile, Kady’s cousin, Asha, survived the initial BeiTech assault and has joined Kerenza’s ragtag underground resistance. When Rhys – an old flame from Asha’s past – reappears on Kerenza, the two find themselves on opposite sides of the conflict.
With time running out, a final battle will be waged on land and in space, heroes will fall, and hearts will be broken.
Obsidio is one of my most anticipated releases of 2018. After reading Illuminae and Gemina I cannot wait to see how the series ends, and even without reading Obsidio I know it’s going to be just as fast paced, just as addictive, and just as beautiful both inside and out.
The first six pages were revealed alongside the cover, I’ve read them more than once already and they’ve left me hungry for more of this book. Unfortunately there is still a really long wait until Obsidio’s release date, but I know this is going to be a book that’s worth the wait, and a book that’s going to be a top read of 2018 for me as well.
What do you think of Obsidio? Is it a must on your to-read list, or are there any other books you can’t wait for the release date of? Let me know in the comments and let me know if you took part in this week’s Waiting on Wednesday as well.
