Waiting on Wednesday - Embers and Echoes (Wildefire #2) by Karsten Knight

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting.

This past week I've been thinking a lot about the books I'm waiting on, and I'm really excited right now for Embers and Echoes, the 2nd book in the Wildefire series by Karsten Knight.  Here's the blurb about it from Goodreads:

Ashline Wilde is about to discover that when you’re the reincarnation of a Polynesian volcano goddess, “new beginnings” are just a myth.

Leaving the fiery ruins of her sophomore year behind her, Ash travels to the sizzling beaches of Miami, hot on the trail of the little sister she’s only seen in visions. But her happy family reunion isn’t all palm trees and paradise. A cult of evil gods-on-earth, known as the Four Seasons, has kidnapped her sister to use in its terrifying new religion. Soon, the streets of Miami erupt in chaos and violence…and Ash gets caught right in the tropical crossfire

Ash isn’t without help, however. Unexpected romance arrives in the form of Wes, an Aztec god of night with his own vendetta against the Four Seasons. As memories of Ash’s previous life begin to flicker into her dreams, the boundaries between ally and enemy, life and death, and love and hate all bleed together. And when a mysterious trickster from her past reappears to derail her new quest, Ash must choose between the echoes of a once-forgotten yesterday and the embers of an uncertain future.

Because when old flames return from the dead, even a volcano goddess can get burned.

I'm very excited by this one!  Hoping I can once again get an egalley from Netgalley.  The author is a pretty humorous guy in real life, I follow his blog and his Twitter, and he is an author who does actually reply!  And, check out that cover, how beautiful is that?
