Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly series hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we’re eagerly awaiting. This week I’m choosing The Ends of the World by Maggie Hall which is the third and final book in The Conspiracy of Us trilogy. The series is often referred to as The Da Vinci Code for teens… except it’s really good! The first book wasn’t my favorite but the second definitely upped the stakes and I love the turn the the story took. If you’ve read the first two books, you’ll also know that the title of the third is very appropriate. Previously, each book debuted in January but the finale has been pushed back to mid-July of 2017. I’m kind of excited to have this to look forward to mid-year since January is usually a pretty big month for book releases. And I love the new cover. The purple dress is so pretty!
The Circle is hers.
But Avery West has lost everything else: her mother, the family she’d just found, and the one boy she trusted. In their place are unfathomable power, a staged relationship that makes her question every real feeling she’s ever had, and a mission to find the cure to the virus that’s made her own blood a weapon.
Then disaster strikes, turning Avery, Stellan, Jack, and Elodie into the most wanted people in the world. To clear their names and the growing rift between the families of the Circle before the world dissolves into World War Three, they’ll have to make a desperate, dangerous final race for Alexander the Great’s tomb. What they will find inside will mean the world’s salvation—or destruction.
Avery will have to decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice—for the world, for family, and for love—in this thrilling conclusion to the Conspiracy of Us series. (via Goodreads)
