Waiting On Wednesday (54) Monument 14: Sky On Fire by Emmy Laybourne

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine
For this weeks Waiting On Wednesday I chose Monument 14: Sky On Fire by Emmy Laybourne.

The world hasn't ended...yet.

In this sequel to MONUMENT 14, the group of survivors, originally trapped together in a superstore by a series of escalating disasters, has split in two. Most of the kids are making a desperate run on their recently repaired school bus for the Denver airport where they hope to reunite with their parents, be evacuated to safety, and save their dying friend.

But the world outside is dark and filled with dangerous chemicals that turn people into bloodthirsty monsters, and not all the kids were willing to get on the bus. Left behind in a sanctuary that has already been disturbed once, the remaining kids try to rebuild the community they lost. But when the issues are life and death, love and hate, who can you really trust?

Expected Publication: May 28, 2013

Why Am I Waiting?
I was a huge fan of Monument 14 (you can see my review here) and so obviously am looking forward to its sequel Sky On Fire. I can't wait to see what awaits the group who have left the Greenway and I'm also looking forward to seeing more of the chaos outside since in the last book almost everything took place inside the store.

  5. Great pick!! I actually just reviewed this one last week I think. I wasn't a huge fan of the first one, but I really liked the second one, so you will probably love it since you loved the first one! Awesome pick!

  7. My favorite superhero is probably Captain America or Iron Man-I've definitely been thrilled with all of the films for the Avengers. (Haven't read Monument 14 so don't have much of an opinion about the books).

  8. That's one I'm not so sure about. I hear good things, but it just doesn't grab me. I don't think this will ever get on my list with so much else to chose from. I hope it won't disappoint you, though. Thanks for sharing. My WoW

    1. I can understand not every book is a perfect fit for every reader. I'm really hoping it won't disappoint though sequels this year have been very hit or miss unfortunately.

  11. I've been contemplating getting the first book on audio. I had it for review but never got around to it, but it sounds like I was missing out. Anything with blood-thirsty monsters in it is a win in my book. :)

    1. I was going to get it on audiobook a few months ago but then ended up winning a hardcover of it. I liked the narrator on the sample though.
