Waiting on Wednesday: Allied by Amy Tintera

 "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...

Allied
(Ruined #3)
Publication Date: May 1, 2018
Hardcover, 416 pages, HarperTeen
Genres: YA, Fantasy

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.

My Thoughts

I was very disappointed in book two of this trilogy. I guess it was because I enjoyed Ruined, book one, so much, and Avenged just didn’t have the same enjoyment factor that the first book did. Hopefully, the third book turns things around; however, I’m not sure when I’ll actually pick this one up. Of course, I’ll buy it just to complete my collection.

That cover is gorgeous, though. It’s definitely better than Avenged’s cover.

What book are you waiting for this Wednesday?
