Waiting on Wednesday - 5/26

Okay "Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

My WoW book for this week is Ascendent by Diana Peterfreund.  For those of you who read Rampant (a crazy book about evil rampaging unicorns and the young girls who are training to fight them) this is the sequel.  I am eager to find out what other crazy adventures Astrid will end up on.

Ascendent by Diana Peterfreund
Pages: 400 pages
Publisher: Harperteen
Release Date: September 28th, 2010

Synopsis from "Now a fully trained unicorn hunter, Astrid Llewelyn is learning that she can’t solve all her problems with a bow and arrow. Her boyfriend has left Rome, the Cloisters is in dire financial straits, her best friend’s powers are mysteriously disintegrating, and her hope of becoming a scientist seems to be nothing but an impossible dream.
So when she’s given the opportunity to leave the Cloisters and use her skills as part of a scientific quest to discover the Remedy, Astrid leaps at the chance. Finally, she can have exactly what she wants—or can she? At Gordian headquarters deep in France, Astrid begins to question everything she had believed: her love for Giovanni, her loyalty to the Cloisters, and—most of all—her duty as a hunter. Should Astrid be saving the world from killer unicorns or saving unicorns from the world?"
