Waiting On Wednesday

So for today's Waiting On Wednesday (hosted by Breaking the Spine), I want to focus on The Essence by Kimberly Derting. It's the sequel to The Pledge which I JUST got in the mail!! I have been waiting to read this one but I try to wait until it's closer to the sequel's release because I hate waiting so long to continue the story. I avoided temptation for a while I think! But just the excitement of reading The Pledge has got me excited for its sequel. So today I am squealing over The Essence with its beautiful cover and (expectantly) epic story!!

The Essence by Kimberly Derting
Expected Publication Date: Jan. 1st, 2013

Goodreads Summary:
 Poor child. Poor, wretched child. You have no idea what you’re up against. No idea how to stop me, do you?

Though it has been months since Charlaina—Charlie—defeated the tyrant Sabara and took control of the Ludanian crown, Sabara has not disappeared. The old queen’s Essence has fused itself to Charlie’s psyche and is viciously fighting to overpower Charlie.

Balancing her new duties as Queen and battling both Sabara’s voice and a growing resistance to her rule push Charlie to the brink of exhaustion. She wants to be the same old Charlie she has ever been but now she is Your Majesty.

As Charlie journeys to an annual summit to meet with the leaders of nearby Queendoms—an event where her ability to understand all languages is the utmost asset—she is faced with the ultimate betrayal. And the only person she can turn to for help is the evil soul residing within.
