Waiting on Wednesday: Fate of Flames by Sarah Raughley

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.  Every Wednesday we get to highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  My book this week is : Fate of Flames by Sarah Raughley.  

FateofFlamesFour girls with the power to control the elements and save the world from a terrible evil must come together in the first epic novel in a brand-new series.

When Phantoms—massive beasts made from nightmares and darkness—suddenly appeared and began terrorizing the world, four girls, the Effigies, each gained a unique power to control one of the classical elements: earth, air, fire, and water. Since then, four girls across the world have continually fought against the Phantoms, fulfilling their cosmic duty. And when one Effigy dies, another girl gains her power as a replacement.

But now, with technologies in place to protect the world’s major cities from Phantom attacks, the Effigies have stopped defending humanity and, instead, have become international celebrities, with their heroic feats ranked, televised, and talked about in online fandoms.

Until the day that New York City’s protection against the Phantoms fails, a man seems to be able to control them by sheer force of will, and Maia, a high school student, unexpectedly becomes the Fire Effigy.

Now Maia has been thrown into battle with three girls who want nothing to do with one another. But with the first human villain that the girls have ever faced, and an army of Phantoms preparing for attack, there isn’t much time for the Effigies to learn how to work together.

Can the girls take control of their destinies before the world is destroyed forever?

Expected publication: November 22nd 2016 by Simon Pulse

    Not crazy about the cover (it looks like a hundred other covers) but boy does it sound good! Girls having to work together? Sounds awesome:-)

    • @lynnsbooks

      It definitely puts me in mind of something but I really don’t know what! Almost like a mash up of a few different covers! Still I like the sound of it.
      Lynn ;D

    This one sounds good and I’ve had my eye on it for some time. The cover reminds me of that “Seeker” book, which I wanted to read but then heard mixed reviews about. Great choice this week!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Ahh, perhaps that’s the book I’m trying to think of – this cover definitely reminds me of something. It does sound great though.
      Lynn 😀

    Not sure how I feel about the cover and elemental powers, but it can be very cool.

    Here’s my WoW @ LazyBookLovers!

      I like the sound of the premise – not totally in love with the cover – it kind of puts me in mind of something but not sure what exactly!
      Lynn 😀

      To be honest it was fairly new to me until the last week and then I spotted it and really liked the sound.

    • @lynnsbooks

      It’s fairly new to me too. I liked the sound of it though.

    I only needed to read the first sentence of the description to know that I need this book in my life! YA witch-y books will forever be one of my guilty pleasures. 🙂
