Waiting On Wednesday (49) The Life Beyond by Susanne Winnacker


 Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine. For this week's Waiting On Wednesday I chose The Life Beyond by Susanne Winnacker.

Add To Goodreads
Title: The Life Beyond
Series: The Other Life
Genre: Horror, Zombies, Young Adult
Publisher: Marshall Cavendish Children's Books
Expected Publication Date: Unknown*
 *UK readers The Life Beyond was released March 1st


15, 323 hours since Sherry listened to one of her father's bedtime stories. 30, 657 minutes since she heard his laughter.

Sherry's father's life is hanging in the balance... And if he turns into a Weeper, Sherry and Joshua know that the only way to save him lies on the other side of the fence - the barrier cutting them off from the rest of the world.

With Tyler and Rachel, they set off into the unknown, driven by the promise of a cure, and the hope of reclaiming the life they once knew. But they find that there are more than just Weepers standing in their way...

There is no going back. There is only beyond.



Why Am I waiting?
 ____________________________________________

 I really loved the first book in this series The Other Life  when I read it through Netgalley last year. I even hunted down a signed copy from The UK after reviewing because I preferred that cover (plus had it signed by the author woot!!). I honestly have no clue when the US release date will be unfortunately. I looked online but couldn't find anything about a US release day and recently there have been  many rumors saying this series is cancelled. If this rumor turns out being true I will be one very angry sad panda.  I'm really looking to seeing Sherry again and also with the ending of the first book does a cure actually exist and what about that wall? So many questions I hope are answered that is if the book every comes out, sigh.

    1. Awesome! I know not everyone is as big a zombie fan as I am but these Weepers are different enough I think fans on the fence of the genre will really find them enjoyable.

    1. Unfortunately as mentioned above I have no clue when the sequel will come out in the US. Maybe if enough people support it :(

  5. Huh. How did I not know this series was about zombies? I mean, I guess it's a good thing I haven't started it yet since there's no indication of a US release date for this sequel, but still. I like to think I'm pretty good at keeping up with all things zombie. :P

    1. Well they aren't traditional Zombies they're infected.... I like them though nonetheless.

  6. Hi Kristin!
    Great pick! I haven't read the first book, but I like the premise (zombies, baby!). I need to make space for it on my TBR, though I really don't know if that is even possible (it's humongous!). Thanks for reminding me about this series! :)

  20. I've seen The Other Life around a little bit and I never read the description I don't think though! This one sounds interesting. Curious about what a Weeper is?! Thanks for stopping by!

  22. I am so angry about the second book!!!!! I loved "The other life" so much it was one of the best books I've ever read. Then when I finished it I wanted to order the next one, and it said "out of print" like what the HELL!? There is no WAY I can live without reading the next one!! There was just no reason for the publishers to "cancel" it!!! THOSE ASSES!!
