Waiting on Wednesday (66)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on Raging Star: Dust Lands #3 by Moira Young (4/15/14):
Description (on Goodreads):
Saba is ready to seize her destiny and defeat DeMalo and the Tonton...until she meets him and he confounds all her expectations with his seductive vision of a healed earth, a New Eden. DeMalo wants Saba to join him, in life and work, to create and build a healthy, stable, sustainable world…for the chosen few. The few who can pay.

Jack’s choice is clear: to fight DeMalo and try to stop New Eden. Still uncertain, her connection with DeMalo a secret, Saba commits herself to the fight. Joined by her brother, Lugh, anxious for the land in New Eden, Saba leads an inexperienced guerilla band against the powerfully charismatic DeMalo, in command of his settlers and the Tonton militia. What chance do they have? Saba must act. And be willing to pay the price.
Why I’m Waiting:
Did you read the description? It sounds epic. I have loved this series since book 1. And Saba is one of my all time favorite YA main characters (though, she has her moments). The world Young writes is so fascinating. Part western, part fantasy, part sci-fi, this story has it all. And I’m still recovering from book 2, many months after reading it. I need book 3 right now. Right now. I’m not a huge fan of the new covers. I liked the original one so much more! These new ones are kind of cheesy and cliché, and don’t give the story any of its deserved awesomeness. But, whatever. I’m so excited for this next installment.
What are you waiting on this week?
