Waiting On Wednesday #1: The Sending

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting. This is my first WoW and I prob won't be doing it every week but I have been anticipating the following book for so long I just had to jump on this bandwagon.

The Sending by Isobelle Carmody
Anticipated release date 31 October 2011

Summary from Penguin Books Australia:

The time has come at last for Elspeth Gordie to leave the Land on her quest to find and stop the computermachine Sentinel from unleashing the deadly Balance of Terror arsenal.  But before she can embark on her journey, she must find a lost key.  And although she has long prepared for this day, nothing is as she anticipated.

Elspeth's search will take her where she never thought to go, and bestow upon her stranger companions than any she ever imagined.  It will lead her far from her destination to those she believed lost forever.

And it will test her, as she has never been tested before . . .

I've been reading this series since I was 12 and this book has been a long time coming. I've only ever found one  other blogger who has read this series so I'm hoping to connect with more! The cover summary tells me Elspeth and Matthew may be reunited and I'm super excited about that.

What books are you guys waiting on?


  1. Oh this series sounds pretty cool I've never heard of it before. I'll check them out!

    Btw- I'm giving away an ARC of Legend and it ends tonight if you haven't entered yet. ;)

  2. I think the cat on The Sending is winking at us. I haven't heard of it either, but it sounds pretty good.

  3. I love the cat cover!! Very cool!! I've never heard of that series but I'll have to give it a try! Welcome to the world of WoW!!

    Zompacolypse is coming... Zompacolypse is here! Get infected!

  4. So glad you're joining us!

  5. Sounds like an interesting book, and the covers are pretty.

  6. Look at all these people that haven't heard of these books! Sigh. I'm so freaking excited for mine to come!!!

  7. Wow, I've never heard of this series before, but it looks really intriguing. Love the idea of a MC on a quest and what she finds along the way. Plus the covers look great. I've never done a WoW either, but I might someday :)

  8. Hmm... the cover with the one eyed (blinking) cat or the wolf? Not sure but either way it looks like a great read!

  9. I've never read anything by Isobelle Carmody, but these look interesting. I may have to pick one up.

  10. I've never heard of this series before, thanks for bringing it to our attention! I will be checking this series out :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Have a great day.

  11. Like most of the people who already commented, I haven't heard of this series either. I hope this book ends up being great for you! Thanks for stopping by my WoW!

  12. New to me, too...but I LOVE the name Elspeth, and have ever since I was a little girl and watched "The Flames Trees of Thicka" (Thika? Hmm.) - the heroine was a spunky girl named Elspeth, and I tried to convince my parents to change my name. They wouldn't. :D

  13. Hey all, thanks for stopping by. The cat is meant to have a battered head and torn off ear so I think that's what they were trying to go for! I like the winking theory though. Can't believe Jenny and I are the only ones who have read this series. I can feel a giveaway coming on!

  14. I love the cover. I think I want this book!


I believe in comment karma. Comment and I shall return :)
