Can’t Wait Wednesday – BETWEEN BURNING WORLDS by Jessica Brody & Joanne Rendell
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about. It is a meme that I have loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is BETWEEN BURNING WORLDS by Jessica Brody & Joanne Rendell. I really enjoyed the first book in this series, which is a sci-fi/fantasy retelling of Les Miserables so I’m excited that we only have a couple more months to wait to get the much-anticipated sequel.
BETWEEN BURNING WORLDS by Jessica Brody & Joanne Rendell
Publication Date: March 24, 2020
Laterre is on the brink of war. The Third Estate are rioting against the injustices of a corrupt system. The Patriarche, reeling from the murder of his only heir, makes brutal attempts to quash the unrest, while a new militant faction launches a series of deadly attacks.
Marcellus is now a traitor to his planet, willing to do anything to stop his grandfather from seizing control of Laterre, even if it means joining the Vangarde, a rebel group back from the dead.
Chatine is a prisoner on Bastille. Desperate to survive the harsh conditions of the moon, she becomes embroiled in the Vangarde’s dangerous attempt to free their infamous leader.
Alouette is a fugitive who has been lied to her entire life. Searching for the truth about her mysterious past, she soon finds herself hunted by the Regime for reasons she’s only beginning to understand.
But when Laterre is threatened by the emergence of a deadly new weapon, these three renegades must risk everything, traveling to the far reaches of the System Divine and into the white hot center of a planet ready to ignite.

The last book ended on such a cliffhanger, I’m really interested to see where the story goes next!
I still haven’t read the first book, but I’ve heard nothing but good things. Hope you enjoy this one😁
