Waiting on Wednesday: Map of Fates (The Conspiracy of Us #2) by Maggie Hall

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 chose a book that is a sequel to another book that I really enjoyed.  This is the sequel to an audiobook I listened to just recently, The Conspiracy of Us.  I will definitely listen to the sequel, or read it.  Not sure, whichever comes first?  But I loved the first one, I went and bought a copy to keep on my shelf.  You can click on the title link in this paragraph to go read my review of it.  Now, here is the blurb for the sequel from Goodreads:

Two weeks. 



That’s how long it took for Avery West’s ordinary life to change forever: In two weeks, she discovered she was heiress to a powerful secret society known as the Circle, learned her mother was taken hostage by the Circle’s enemies, and fell for a boy she’s not allowed to love, just as she found out another was her unwelcome destiny. 



Now, Avery crosses oceans in private jets to hunt for clues that will uncover the truth about the Circle, setting her mom and herself free before it’s too late. By her side are both the boys: Jack—steady, loyal, and determined to help her even at the expense of his own duty—and Stellan, whose connection to Avery grows stronger by the day despite her best intentions, making her question what she believes at every turn.



But at the end of a desperate hunt from the islands of Greece to the red carpet at Cannes comes a discovery that not only changes everything, but could bring the whole world to its knees. And now Avery is forced to face the truth: in the world of the Circle, no one is what they seem.


So, have you read the first book yet?  Does it sound like something you'd enjoy?  What book are you anxiously awaiting this week?

While you're here, I've got a couple giveaways you should go check out:

  1. I never read the original story but it has caught my eye in the past. I love it when I can see a sequel and immediately know what series it belongs too. Yes, I hate cover changes :) Hope you love it!

    1. I hate when they change covers! Especially when they do it for the very last book, which has happened a few times this past year. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. The Conspiracy of Us was a bit of a slow read for me. I was intrigued by the circle story line though so I may pick up the sequel to see where that will lead.

    1. I listened to it as an audiobook, and it did start out kind of slow I guess. But I got into it enough that by the end I really liked it! Thanks for visiting!

  9. I have an ARC of book one but never read it! I like the covers but I am 100% sure that these books are not for me (given the love triangle I keep hearing about). I hope you enjoy it when you read it, Lisa!

    1. Ah, that's too bad. The love triangle doesn't seem like it's really going to be a love triangle, as one of the guys even says it is just to get the power, and the girl knows that is all. But it might change in this sequel. Who knows! Thanks for stopping by!
