Waiting on Wednesday! (#16)

~ Waiting on Wednesday (WoW) is a weekly meme post hosted by: Jill from Breaking the Spine that showcases not-yet-released books that I'm eagerly awaiting to read! ~

I'm waiting for:

By: Victoria Scott

Release Date: February 25th, 2014
Genre(s): YA Paranormal/Thriller


A modern day thrill ride, where a teen girl and her animal companion must participate in a breathtaking race to save her brother's life—and her own.

Tella Holloway is losing it. Her brother is sick, and when a dozen doctors can't determine what's wrong, her parents decide to move to the middle of nowhere for the fresh air. She's lost her friends, her parents are driving her crazy, her brother is dying—and she's helpless to change anything.

Until she receives mysterious instructions on how to become a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed. It's an epic race across jungle, desert, ocean, and mountain that could win her the prize she desperately desires: the Cure for her brother's illness. But all the Contenders are after the Cure for people they love, and there's no guarantee that Tella (or any of them) will survive the race.

Why am I waiting? 
Fire & Flood sounds very interesting, and looks it too. When I read what it was about I instantly thought of the Hunger Games but with a strange twist. I'm very curious about the race, and all the contenders participating to save their loved ones. I don't read many paranormal thrillers but Fire & Flood seems like it may be something really cool. It's written by Victoria Scott who is also the author of the Dante Walker series - The Collector, and The Liberator. Overall it has caught my attention and I'm hoping it'll be a really original and unexpected story.
