This week's eagerly anticipated release is:
Dreaming Awake (Falling Under #2)
by Gwen Hayes
Expected publication: January 3rd 2012 by NAL Trade
She fell for him in a nighttime world. But the time for dreaming is past—and the here-and-now can be just as fragile their love…
When Theia Alderson first encountered a mysterious, handsome boy in her dreams, she never imagined how finding Haden Black—and falling in love—could change her life. To save Haden, Theia sacrificed everything. And the dangerous bargain she made could have lasting repercussions.
Now Theia has returned to Serendipity Falls, and she finds herself struggling with the same deadly hungers that have tortured Haden. When students at their high school fall prey to a mysterious illness, Theia can’t help but wonder if Haden’s control is slipping—and how much longer she’ll have a grip on her own.
After reading Falling Under, I was really wondering how things would work out for Theia after her deal with Haden's mother, her eventual escape from Under, and the repercussions of returning home. I can't wait to finally find out what's been happening with Theia and Haden and their struggle for control. And then there's still someone trying to keep them apart. I love that whole star-crossed lovers thing. And then you have the heroine's difficult decision between choosing her family/friends and the one she loves. I can't wait to see what Theia decides.And still the nightmare realm of Under won’t let them go. Someone from Haden’s past is determined to destroy Theia from the inside out, starting with those closest to her, forcing Theia to choose between family and friends and a love that may have been doomed from the start…
