Waiting on Wednesday: Avenged - Amy Tintera

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm waiting on Avenged by Amy Tintera .

Amy Tintera
Series: Ruined, #2
Release Date: May 2,  2017
Publisher: HarperTeen
Waited on by: Sam

In the sequel to Ruined, the romance of The Selection and the epic stakes of Red Queen come together in a story of revenge, adventure, and unexpected love.

Emelina Flores has come home to Ruina. After rescuing her sister Olivia from imprisonment in rival kingdom Lera, Em and Olivia together vow to rebuild Ruina to its former glory.

But their fight has only begun. Olivia is determined to destroy everyone who acts against Ruina, but Em isn’t as sure. Ever since Em posed as Prince Casimir’s betrothed in Lera, she’s started to see another side to this war. And now that Cas has taken the throne, Em believes a truce is within reach. But Olivia suspects that Em’s romantic feelings for Cas are just coloring her judgement.

Em is determined to bring peace to her home. But when winning the war could mean betraying her family, Em faces an impossible choice between loyalty and love. Em must stay one step ahead of her enemies—and her blood—before she’s the next victim in this battle for sovereignty.

I read Ruined based on a blogger review, and I was glad I did. To quote my own review:
Overall, a great adventure, which I enjoyed from beginning to end. Bring on book 2!

I loved almost everything about the first book: the romance, the action, the magic, the world, the hero and heroine. I was immediately pulled into this world and totally absorbed in the story. So, what didn't I like? What else? The ending! Because I am an impatient beast, and I NEED to know what happens next.

I will confess, I am insanely jealous of all the people, who were lucky enough to get ARCs for this book. And I swear! I am not like this for all series, just the ones that really dazzled me.  Alas, I will sit his, and eagerly await the arrival of Avenged. 

What are you waiting on?
Let us know in the comments!


  1. I can't wait to read this book as well! I have it coming up for review, which is exciting. Hopefully it's not too cliffhanger-y. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a wonderful week, Sam. =)

    1. I don't read a ton of SFF, but I do enjoy it. I think I read more contemporaries, because they do not tend to be series. LOL.
