Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.
A Spark Unseen
by Sharon Cameron

hitting shelves October 1st, 2013 from Scholastic Press

The thrilling sequel to Sharon Cameron's blockbuster gothic steampunk romance, THE DARK UNWINDING, will captivate readers anew with mystery and intrigue aplenty.

When Katharine Tulman wakes in the middle of the night and accidentally foils a kidnapping attempt on her uncle, she realizes Stranwyne Keep is no longer safe for Uncle Tully and his genius inventions. She flees to Paris, where she hopes to remain undetected and also find the mysterious and handsome Lane, who is suspected to be dead.

But the search for Lane is not easy, and Katharine soon finds herself embroiled in a labyrinth of political intrigue. And with unexpected enemies and allies at every turn, Katharine will have to figure out whom she can trust--if anyone--to protect her uncle from danger once and for all.

Filled with deadly twists, whispering romance, and heart-stopping suspense, this sequel to THE DARK UNWINDING whisks readers off on another thrilling adventure.

My thoughts: The cover hasn't quite grown on me yet---possibly because I loved the cover of book one so much and it was a lot to live up to! She just looks a little too modern to be Katharine.  BUT I am VERY excited about this sequel!! I loved The Dark Unwinding (review here) and can't wait to dive into an adventure with these characters again!


  1. I've been really curious about the dark unwinding for sometime now, but never thought to check it out. And book too will be releasing soon enough, so I need to get on starting this series!

    My WW!

  2. I really want to read THE DARK UNWINDING but haven't managed to get my hands on a copy yet. One day I will. One day...

  3. I think the cover is pretty but I still haven't read The Dark Unwinding even though it sounds so good >.< Well, I still have half a year until this one is out ;) Thanks for reminding me of the series!

  6. I'm with you. I don't love this cover. But I hope it rocks for you!
