Summary

LONDON, 2012: IT arrives and with that the world is changed into an unending graveyard littered with the bones, wreckage, and memories of a dead past, gone forever.

LONDON, 2032: Twenty years later, out of the ashes, a new world begins to rise, a place ruled by both loyalty and fear, and where the quest to be the first to regain lost knowledge is an ongoing battle for power. A place where laws are made and enforced by roving gangs—the Bloomsbury Boys, the Gardners, the Red Lady’s Gang—who rule the streets and will do anything to protect their own.

THE FOUR: Zane, Titus, Erin, Eve. Living in this new world, they discover that they have abilities never before seen. And little do they know that as they search post-apocalyptic London for Titus’ kidnapped sister that they’ll uncover the secret of It, and bring about a reckoning with the forces that almost destroyed all of humanity.

Summary
I've started to have dreams while I'm awake. I remember music I've never heard ... I've got all this extra stuff in my head, but I'm forgetting things from my own life. I feel like I'm being taken over.

Cassie Farrier has always suffered from terrifying nightmares. On a trip to Germany she recognizes scenes from her dreams and finds evidence of a sixty year-old massacre. Fearing for her sanity, her family sends Cassie to a retreat where she meets others with symptoms like her own and finds out that she has lived a number of past lives.

However, the Doctor at the retreat is not what she seems. Cassie and the boy she comes to love must escape the Doctor’s influence but can they also escape the misery of their shared past?

Why waiting for 20 Years Later? It is a dystopian book! Who wouldn't want that? Aside from that, it has this thrilling summary. It's like the movie, The Book of Eli. I am thinking the scenario would be like that, but of course the entire story is totally different. I can feel this book contains violence and blood-gushing action! Ohhhh... I'm so excited! lol! This would be a truly remarkable read this 2011! Can't wait! :]

Why waiting for Angel's Fury? Beside from the word angel. The cover looks so cool too and the summary is definitely awesome! It's a YA mystery-thriller-thingy. But I am sure of it! lol! And it appears that the Doctor looks terrifying, like the character on Wither - Housemaster Vaughn. I'm shaking in excitement on this one too! Can't wait to read it myself! :]

So what are you waiting this week? Hope you got the same excitement with me today! Happy Reading! :]
