Waiting on Wednesday: The Eternity Key by Bree Despain

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, what's really got my pages in a twist is...

The Eternity Key
(Into the Dark #2)
Publication Date: May 12, 2015
Hardcover, 448 pages, Egmost USA
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

After escaping the Skylords, Haden, Daphne, and their friends decide to try to find the Key of Hades on their own before Persephone's Gate opens again on the spring equinox. They think they can use the Key as leverage to stop the Court from coming after Daphne, and stop them from releasing the Keres on the mortal world. Once in Olympus Hills, Haden and Daphne find themselves with some hiccups in their plan. Haden's twin brother, Rowan, reveals himself to have been following Haden's entire mission, and the Skylords have sent a group of their own to enroll at Olympus Hills High to spy on Haden and Daphne.

As the spring equinox looms, the gang finds an unlikely ally in one of the Skylords who helps them devise a plan for getting the Key and using it to destroy the Keres before they can break free from the Pit and devour the world. In order to fulfill the plan, Daphne must enter the Underrealm with the Key. Unfortunately, because of the oath Haden made to never bring Daphne back there, he is unable to accompany Daphne. Reluctantly, he agrees to let Garrick and Tobin take her through Persephone's Gate, while he and the Skylord wait for them on the other side.

Separated in two different worlds, but still linked by destiny, Haden and Daphne must race against time to keep the Keres from revolting and keep themselves-and their love-alive.

My Thoughts

So I’m not too thrilled about the cover change. Don’t get me wrong, book one’s cover wasn’t all that wonderful to me, but this design isn’t either. At least the story was good. I’ll probably wait until this comes out in paperback to buy it though. That way my series will match.

What book are you waiting for this Wednesday?

  1. I really like the new covers. The old one seemed pretty generic. I got the first book from NetGalley, so I don't own a copy. I'll definitely be buying a paperback that will match the new hardcover. I normally don't like cover changes, but this one works for me. Here's my WoW
