Waiting On Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking The Spine where we discuss the upcoming releases that we are just dying for! This week at Wickedly Bookish, I am absolutely dying to read:

P.C. Cast & Kirsten Cast
House of Night Series #9
Release Date: October 25, 2011 

In Destined, the forces of Light and Dark collide as their epic struggle focuses on Tulsa's House of Night. Zoey is home where she belongs, safe with her Guardian Warrior, Stark, by her side and preparing to face off against Neferet. Kalona has released his hold on Rephaim, and, through Nyx's gift of a human form, he and Stevie Rae are finally able to be together if Rephaim can truly walk the path of the Goddess and stay free of his father's shadow.

But is Zoey really safe? Does she truly know those who are closest to her? And will love win when it is tested by the very soul of Darkness? Find out what s destined in the next thrilling chapter of the House of Night series.

I have been following this series since the beginning. The first four books were amazing, but from there on the books have taken a dive. The two most recent ones Burned and Awakened were better and renewed my interest in the series, but I'm not going to get my hopes up. Then why, you may ask, are you dying for it's release? Well Wicked Readers, I just can't give up on this series. I keep hoping that we will get back to that awesomeness of the first four. I keep hoping that my faith will be rewarded and that this series will go back to its roots and not prove to be the money siphoning franchise it is turning out to be. Sometimes I wonder... Did they authors plan for it to be drawn out unecessarily with filler book after filler book? Or did they start out with the hope of people liking it, and then when they did, they decided, "Hey let's get all the money we can out of this one?" I really just want to see what happens to my favorite characters and find out what they heck they are doing with Heath's storyline!
