Amelia—still caught between life and death—must fight for every moment of her relationship with the human boy Joshua. They can hardly even kiss without Amelia accidentally dematerializing. Looking for answers, they go to visit some of Joshua’s Seer relatives in New Orleans. But even in a city so famously steeped in the supernatural, Amelia ends up with more questions than answers…and becomes increasingly convinced that she and Joshua can never have a future together.Wandering through the French Quarter, Amelia meets other in-between ghosts, and begins to seriously consider joining them. And then she meets Gabrielle. Somehow, against impossible odds, Gaby has found a way to live a sort of half-life…a half-life for which Amelia would pay any price. Torn between two worlds, Amelia must choose carefully, before the evil spirits of the netherworld choose for her.
Why?: I absolutely loved Hereafter, the first in this series and I can not wait until the next installment of this book! Plus, just look at the cover and that synopsis! It all looks so amazing, doesn’t it? I honestly cannot wait to see what Tara Hudson has in store for us in this next book!
Title: Underworld: Awakening
Release Date: 20th January 2012
Directors: Måns Mårlind, Björn Stein
Why?: Because so far I have loved every other Underworld film and I can imagine that I will feel the same way about this one! I cannot wait for its release and while it has probably stretched the franchise as far as it can go, I don’t care. This is one that I am excited to wait for!
This week, both of the things I’m waiting on are sequels but isn’t that just how these things go? Hehe!
