Waiting On Wednesday (99) Astray (Gated #2) by Amy Christine Parker

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine where readers showcase which books they are highly anticipating. For this weeks Waiting on Wednesday, I chose Astray (Gated #2) by Amy Christine Parker. 

Expected Publication:
August 26, 2014 from Random House Books

Lyla is caught between two worlds. The isolated Community that she grew up in and the outside world that she’s navigating for the very first time. The outsiders call the Community a cult, but Pioneer miraculously survived a shooting that should have killed him. Are the faithful members right to stay true to his message? Is this just a test of faith? One thing is for sure: the Community will do anything to bring Lyla back to the fold. Trapped in a spider’s web of deception, will Lyla detect the sticky threads tightening around her before it’s too late? She’ll have to unravel the mystery of what Pioneer and the Community are truly up to if she wants to survive.

Why Am I Waiting?
Gated was one of my favorite books last year. Naturally when I heard the Author decided to write a sequel I was excited. However as excited as I am, I'm actually more curious to see how events unfold considering the ending of the previous book. Also how is pioneer still in charge of the community? Unless it's from prison I can't really see how he could be. I mean not only is the dude a psycho but he's also committed a slew of crimes not only against his own people but those living in the surrounding community as well. Thankfully not too much longer until all my questions will be answered. Hopefully at least...
Since I'm curious, Have you heard of this book before? 
If so, Do you plan on reading it?

  2. I haven't heard of this before, and it kinda gives off this Jehova Witnesses vibe... urgs. Not my kind of thing, but it doesn't sound bad. And if you liked the first book, I hope you'll enjoy this sequel as well!
    My WoW

  3. Oh it is definitely Cult-tastic but nonetheless still a really interesting and enjoyable read.

  4. Well this seems... creepy. I am way more a romance fan. Light and fluffy, that's me! But when this book comes out I hope you enjoy it :)
