Waiting on Wednesday - Oblivion by Anthony Horowitz 1/2/13

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where you highlight one book that you can't wait to hit the bookshelves!

I can't wait for the finale to the Power of Five series, called Oblivion by Anthony Horowitz! It hits shelves on April 1, 2013!

Anthony Horowitz is a master. I first fell in love with him when he came to town to talk to my students. He was engaging, hilarious, and, best of all, British. As if writing edge-of-your-seat stories wasn't enough, he kept my students on the edge of their seats talking about the writing process. It was magical.

At first glance, it looked like Oblivion was already out, so I was all ready to select another WoW book. However, after researching, it seems that it was released in October in the UK, and you can get copies on Amazon, but the official US release isn't until April 1st.

The Power of Five series tells the story of the 5 Gatekeepers, young teens marked for being protectors. Each Gatekeeper gets their own book (except the twins in book 3), and in this final chapter, all five come together to save the world. The books take readers all over the world, and writing the books took Anthony Horowitz all over the world. Here is a video showing the lengths Anthony Horowitz went to in researching the setting of Oblivion.

Happy Reading!
