Waiting on Wednesday: Innocent Darkness by Suzanne Lazear

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases!

I'm kind of picky about YA books (nothing against them, I just tend to lean toward adult novels), but there are a few 2012 YA releases that have caught my eye. The newest one to capture my interest - and perhaps the one I'm most excited to read - is the YA steampunk/dark fairytale Innocent Darkness.

Innocent Darkness Cover Title: Innocent Darkness
Series: The Aether Chronicles, Book 1
Author: Suzanne Lazear
Genre: YA Steampunk
Publisher: Flux
Release Date: August 8, 2012

Book Description (from Suzanne Lazear's website):

Wish. Love. Desire. Live.

Otherworld, only to reveal that she must be sacrificed. If Noli doesn't die, an entire civilization will.
