Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting. Once again I’ve picked a sequel to a book. Although I wasn’t completely thrilled with the first book, it is by an author that I have loved another series by, so I can’t quite give up yet. This the sequel to Alive, by Scott Sigler. The blurb on Goodreads isn’t very big, and so it doesn’t give much away, but I’m still excited to read it!
Alight reveals to readers the further adventures of Em, Spingate, O’Malley, Bishop, and the other young heroes introduced in Alive. In Alive, Em fought to assert herself as leader and her friends tried to comprehend their own mysterious identity; now she must wrestle not with the challenge of winning power but the grave responsibility of having assumed it, and she and her friends must contend with a grim fact: the revelation of their identity is not an answer but another question—and one with terrifying implications.
Not a lot to go on, other than some basic info. I’ll still be waiting to read it, and hope to get an egalley once again.
So that’s my pick for the week, what are you eagerly awaiting on?
And while you’re here, there are only a few more days to enter my October New Release Giveaway!
I really didn't like the first book, because it took too long to get to the point. I don't think I'll read this one, unless I borrow it from the library or something. Hopefully, you will enjoy it more than Alive.
I did have some trouble with the first book, kind of for the same reason you mentioned. But I've loved other books by the author, so I'm not ready to give up just yet. Thanks for stopping by!
I don't really know this one, but it sounds interesting ! Great choice and have a wonderful day
Thanks! Glad you could stop by.
I haven't read Alive, didn't even know about it, tbh.
I hope you'll enjoy reading it once it comes out.
I hope it will be good, that it will live up to the other books I've enjoyed by the author. Thanks for visiting!

You're right in that there's not a lot to go on, but I suppose if you're already familiar with the series, you'd know more of what to expect. 🙂
