Waiting on Wednesday: Toward a Secret Sky

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

Toward a Secret Sky by Heather Maclean
Pub. Date: April 7, 2017


Goodreads says, "Shortly after 17-year-old Maren Hamilton is orphaned and sent to live with grandparents she’s never met in Scotland, she receives an encrypted journal from her dead mother that makes her and everyone around her a target. It confirms that her parents were employed by a secret, international organization that’s now intent on recruiting her. As Maren works to unravel the clues left behind by her mother, a murderous madness sweeps through the local population, terrorizing her small town. Maren must decide if she’ll continue her parents’ fight or stay behind to save her friends. With the help of Gavin, an otherworldly mercenary she’s not supposed to fall in love with, and Graham, a charming aristocrat who is entranced with her, Maren races against the clock and around the country from palatial estates with twisted labyrinths to famous cathedrals with booby-trapped subterranean crypts to stay ahead of the enemy and find a cure. Along the way, she discovers the great truth of love: that laying down your life for another isn’t as hard as watching them sacrifice everything for you."

You had me at Scotland! I also love the concept of an encrypted journal from her deceased mother....sounds like a fascinating adventure with a gorgeous setting! What do you guys think?

  1. I think this sounds really good...except for the potential love triangle. Scotland is a good setting for stories of magic or adventure :)

    That seems like it would be true! And it makes me a little nervous about this one, definitely one where I'm going to have to read the end first ;-) Still, it sounds outstanding, and I was sold at Scotland too!
