Can't-Wait Wednesday: Allied - Amy Tintera

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I can't wait for Allied!

Amy Tintera
Series: Ruined, #3
Release Date: May 1, 2018
Publisher: HarperTeen
Waited on by: Sam
In the final book in the New York Times bestselling Ruined series, 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 and her sister, Olivia, were determined to bring peace to the people of Ruina. But as the war for liberation raged on, what triumph and freedom meant to Em and Olivia slowly changed. As Olivia’s violence and thirst for vengeance became her only ambition, Em was left to pick up the pieces.

But it’s not only Em who is upset by Olivia’s increased violence. Other members of the Ruined army are beginning to see the cracks, and soon a small group of them defects from Olivia’s army and joins Em instead. The two sisters are soon pitted against each other in an epic battle for the kingdom and the future, and only one will win.
This is it! The final book in the Ruined series, and I cannot wait to see how it all ends! Both Ruined and Avenged were 5-star reads for me. So, obviously, I enjoy this series, but after the way Tintera ended Avenged, it is most imperative that I read this book.

Things I need to know:

  • What happens to the Ruined?
  • What happens to Emelina?
  • Does Olivia implode? 
  • Will Emelina and Cas' love survive?
These are important questions people, and I need some answers! 

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

  12. I didnt’ get around to this series by this author, I read her first series and liked it, but that was before I went on the YA burn out I am currently experiencing.

  14. I'm skimming this because I don't want to know anything about the series! I was planning on starting it soon, but I'm on hold at my library. Apparently, the wait list is long.

    Do You Dog-ear?

  15. Yet another series that I still need to start, lol.

  16. Closing my eyes because I haven't read the second book yet, but Ruined really surprised me. I might have immediately bought the second upon finishing it.

  17. I can't believe that I haven't read this series yet. I will get to it one of these days. I am glad to hear that it is one you have really enjoyed. I hope that the third book is one that you love. :)

  18. Yaaaassss! This book could not come soon enough. I just looked for it on Edelweiss yesterday (no dice, sadly). I hope we love it!

    Have a fabulous day, Sam. =)
