Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine, that highlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting. I won't be doing this every week, just when a book I'm particularly excited about announces its release date or book cover.
K. B. Hoyle's The Gateaway Chronicles is a modern day, set in the US, Chronicles of Narnia type series for young adults, but highly enjoyed by adults, too. The White Thread is due out Fall 2011.
I highly recommend you start reading the series now so you will be ready to jump right into the continuing tale of 6 kids (now high school students), a prophecy, and a race to save Alitheia. I wonder if Darcy's feelings have changed for the prince. I'm sure he has grown up a lot (I think he will be much more man than boy in this book) while she has been away for Alitheia. I also hope we get a glimpse at least at Yahto Veli. Just thinking about the wonderful story that Hoyle is weaving together makes me all excited and wanting to pull out my copy of The Six to once again enter Alitheia.
