Jill over at Breaking the Spine created the Waiting on Wednesday meme for us bloggers to showcase books we're waiting on.

This week I have selected Void; Hex, Shadows, Ghosts by Rhiannon Lassiter. The cover design is striking, the snyopsis sounds original and cool and I cannot wait to read it.

Void; Hex, Shadows, Ghosts

by Rhiannon Lassiter
ISBN-13: 978-1442429291
Simon Pulse


The CPS, a secret government agency, is on a mission to seek and destroy the Hex - human mutants with supercomputer minds. They are young. They look like normal teens. They must never be allowed to grow up.

But the CPS hasn't discovered Raven. Soon they will feel her power and know her rage.

Raven and her brother, Wraith, must use Raven’s Hex powers and Wraith’s street skills to save first their long-lost sister, and then the entire Hex community. But before they start, Raven must overcome her mantra: work alone and think only of herself. Even then the challenges don't stop as they must crack the top-secret and high-tech security of the CPS, ally with a political-terrorist group, and then ultimately take down the evil European Federation.

And even the best laid plans can go awry.

  5. I read the original trilogy when they originally came out, and they were among my favourite reads when I was 20. I have reread them 3 times after becoming older, and while they will without doubt appeal to teenagers, I enjoy them every time.

    The appeal for teenagers comes mostly because the characters are young, and some of the dialogue, but it is not a teenage love tale hidden in sci fi....

    Read it.....This is the entire trilogy, but the first and third books are very good.

We would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
