Waiting on Wednesday (28)

Salt & Stone

Author: Victoria Scott
Fire & Flood #2
Scholastic Press
Expected: February 24th, 2015

Description from GoodReads:

   What would you do to save someone you love?

   In Fire & Flood, Tella Holloway faced a dangerous trek through the jungle and across the desert, all to remain a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed for a chance at obtaining the Cure for her brother. She can't quit--she has to win the race, save Cody, and then fight to make sure the race stops before it can claim any more lives. In the next legs of the race, across the ocean and over mountains, Tella will face frostbite, sharks, avalanche, and twisted new rules in the race.

   But what if the danger is deeper than that? How do you know who to trust when everyone's keeping secrets? What do you do when the person you'd relied on most suddenly isn't there for support? How do you weigh one life against another?

   The race is coming to an end, and Tella is running out of time, resources, and strength. At the start of the race there were one hundred twenty-two Contenders. As Tella and her remaining friends start the final part of the race, just forty-one are left--and only one can win.

Why I Want It:

   Victoria ended the first book in the series ( Fire & Flood) beautifully, leaving me wanting to know what happens next! I'm dying to know who will win! Or if something snaps and suddenly everything changes? I love Victoria's books starting with her Dante Walker series, everything of hers is gold. Gold I tell you.

Why You Should Want It:

   This series is another set of games that will somewhat resemble The Hunger Games, but let me tell you. The Fire & Flood series gives Hunger Games a run for its money. Fans of action, sci-fi and races will be tripping over their feet for this series!
