Waiting on Wednesday (41) — A Beautiful Evil by Kelly Keaton

“Waiting On” Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about (created by Jill at Breaking The Spine.)

A Beautiful Evil (Gods & Monsters, #2)


A power she can’t deny. A destiny she’s determined to fight.

When Ari first arrived in the dilapidated city of New 2, all she wanted was to figure out who she was. But what she discovered was beyond her worst nightmare. Ari can already sense the evil growing inside her—a power the goddess Athena will stop at nothing to possess.

Desperate to hold on to her humanity and protect her loved ones, Ari must fight back. But Athena’s playing mind games, not just with Ari but with those she cares about most. And Athena has a very special plan for the brooding Sebastian.

Ari is determined to defeat Athena, but time is running out. With no other options, Ari must unleash the very thing she’s afraid of: herself.

Though I don’t love this cover as much as the first one, I just can’t wait to dive into Keaton’s latest!
A Beautiful Evil is expected to be released on February 21, 2012 by Simon Pulse.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

    This sounds really good. The cover reminds me of the Angels from Doctor Who. Great pick.

    Oh! I think this cover matches the first book quite nicely. I knew it must be the 2nd book immediately! I haven't read the first book yet, though.
