Waiting On Wednesday - Scorch (Croak #2) by Gina Damico

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 week I've chosen the sequel to the book by the author I got to host as part of the Authors are Rockstars tour.  You should go check it out and sign up for the contest to win this book HERE.  

Croak is a cool series about Reapers, and Scorch continues Lex's story after a renegade reaper has taken off with an extra power that Lex unwillingly gave to her.  Here is the summary from

Sixteen-year-old Lex Bartleby is a teenage grim reaper with the bizarre ability to damn souls. That makes her pretty scary, even to fellow Grims. But after inadvertently transferring her ability to Zara, a murderous outlaw, Lex is a pariah in Croak, the little town she calls home.

To escape the townspeople’s wrath, she and her friends embark on a wild road trip to DeMyse. Though this sparkling desert oasis is full of luxuries and amusements, it feels like a prison to Lex. Her best chance at escape would be to stop Zara once and for all—but how can she do that from DeMyse, where the Grims seem mysteriously oblivious to Zara’s killing spree?

So, what book are you eagerly waiting on this week?
