Waiting on Wednesday: Ravencry by Ed McDonald & The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights exciting upcoming releases that we can't wait to be released!

This week's upcoming book spotlight is:
Ravencry Ed McDonald (Raven's Mark #2)
Publication Date: June 18th, 2018
380 pages
Pre-order: Amazon Book Depository 

From Goodreads:

Four years have passed since Nall’s Engine drove the Deep Kings back across the Misery, but as they hurl fire from the sky, darker forces plots against the republic. 

A new power is rising: a ghost in the light known only as the Bright Lady manifests in visions across the city, and the cult that worship her grasp for power even as the city burns around them. 

When Crowfoot’s arcane vault is breached, an object of terrible power is stolen, and Galharrow and his Blackwings must once find out which of Valengrad’s enemies is responsible before they have a chance to use it. 

To save Valengrad, Galharrow, Nenn and Tnota must venture to a darker, more twisted and more dangerous place than any they’ve walked before: the very heart of the Misery. 

RAVENCRY is the second book in the Raven’s Mark series, continuing the story that began with the award winning epic fantasy BLACKWING."
I read Blackwing early last year and was really impressed by the world McDonald created. It was a different setting from what I normally read, but I loved it and can't wait to finally read the sequel!

The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James
Publication Date: July 24th, 2018
320 pages
Pre-order: Amazon Book Depository 

From Goodreads:

A surprising and gripping sci-fi thriller with a killer twist 

The daughter of two astronauts, Romy Silvers is no stranger to life in space. But she never knew how isolating the universe could be until her parents’ tragic deaths left her alone on the Infinity, a spaceship speeding away from Earth. 

Romy tries to make the best of her lonely situation, but with only brief messages from her therapist on Earth to keep her company, she can’t help but feel like something is missing. It seems like a dream come true when NASA alerts her that another ship, the Eternity, will be joining the Infinity. 

Romy begins exchanging messages with J, the captain of the Eternity, and their friendship breathes new life into her world. But as the Eternity gets closer, Romy learns there’s more to J’s mission than she could have imagined. And suddenly, there are worse things than being alone…."

This just sounds so different from other books. I'm not sure exactly what it is, but I am really interested to see where this story will go. Also, I am really digging the cover for this one!

  1. The Loneliest Girl in the Universe sounds interesting!

  2. I've been into space books this year, so The Loneliest Girl in the Universe sounds right up my alley!

  3. These both sound good! I want to read Blackwing because I've read so many glowing reviews. I hope you love the sequel just as much😁
