Waiting on Wednesday: Children of the Earth (End Times #2) by Anna Schumacher

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting.  I've chosen a sequel this week, to a book that I wasn't quite sure about, but that I would like to know what happens next.  The first book was called End Times.  It wasn't quite what I thought when I read the synopsis, but I kind of still need to know what is actually happening.  Here is the blurb from Goodreads:

Seven signs warned them. Now it’s time for Carbon County to fight back.

In End Times, Daphne lost herself in love with Owen, only to discover the dark secret that puts Carbon County at ground zero for the end of days. . . .

All thirteen of the Children of Earth have arrived and taken root in town. Together at last, they can perform the series of rituals necessary to awaken their father, a wrathful entity known as the God of the Earth.

Daphne protects their identities from Pastor Ted and the God-fearing locals out of love and allegiance to Owen. But when people start disappearing from town and Daphne begins receiving visions from God, her allegiance—and even her love—is brought into question in this astonishing companion novel to End Times.

So, should be interesting to see what happens next.  Did you read the first book?  Does this sound like one you might want to read?  What book are you eagerly awaiting this week?
