Waiting on Wednesday #31

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine, that highlights upcoming releases we're anticipating.

Author: Melissa Landers
Series: Alienated
Genre: YA, Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Romance
Release Date: February 3, 2015
Summary From Goodreads: 
The romantic sequel to Alienated takes long-distance relationships to a new level as Cara and Aelyx long for each other from opposite ends of the universe...until a threat to both their worlds reunites them.
Cara always knew life on planet L’eihr would be an adjustment. With Aelyx, her L’eihr boyfriend, back on Earth, working to mend the broken alliance between their two planets, Cara is left to fend for herself at a new school, surrounded by hostile alien clones. Even the weird dorm pet hates her.
Things look up when Cara is appointed as human representative to a panel preparing for a human colony on L’eihr. A society melding their two cultures is a place where Cara and Aelyx could one day make a life together. But with L’eihr leaders balking at granting even the most basic freedoms, Cara begins to wonder if she could ever be happy on this planet, even with Aelyx by her side.
Meanwhile, on Earth, Aelyx, finds himself thrown into a full-scale PR campaign to improve human-L’eihr relations. Humans don’t know that their very survival depends on this alliance: only Aelyx’s people have the technology to fix the deadly contamination in the global water supply that human governments are hiding. Yet despite their upper hand, the leaders of his world suddenly seem desperate to get humans on their side, and hardly bat an eye at extremists’ multiple attempts on Aelyx’s life.
The Way clearly needs humans’ help . . . but with what? And what will they ask for in return?

Why I'm waiting:  

Who can possibly turn down a book with a swoony alien? I've read both Until Midnight and Alienated and I still can't wait for more!

  1. I have Invaded and I can't wait to dive into it as soon as I'm done with my other books (damnit, my backlog is bloody long >_< ) I loved Alienated and want to see how the relationship between Aelyx and Cara will be nurtured now that they are literally worlds away O_O

    1. I know how you feel! At this rate I'll never get to all the books I want to read! And I'm crossing my fingers that things work out for them, because I totally ship it! It would make me sad if they ever broke up.
