Sky on Fire (Monument 14 #2)
by Emmy Laybourne

Goodreads synopsis:
This is the second book in the Monument 14 series. If you haven't read the first book, this synopsis will contain spoilers.

Trapped in a superstore by a series of escalating disasters, including a monster hailstorm and terrifying chemical weapons spill, brothers Dean and Alex learned how to survive and worked together with twelve other kids to build a refuge from the chaos. But then strangers appeared, destroying their fragile peace, and bringing both fresh disaster and a glimmer of hope.

Knowing that the chemical weapons saturating the air outside will turn him into a bloodthirsty rage monster, Dean decides to stay in the safety of the store with Astrid and some of the younger kids. But their sanctuary has already been breached once. . . .

Meanwhile, Alex, determined to find their parents, heads out into the darkness and devastation with Niko and some others in a recently repaired school bus. If they can get to Denver International Airport, they might be evacuated to safety. But the outside world is even worse than they expected. . . .

I read Monument 14 not too long ago, and I really enjoyed it - especially the ending, which had me so captivated that I knew I'd be itching to get hold of the second book as soon as I physically could. Sky on Fire is the sequel, and although it's already out in the US, I'm waiting for it to come out in paperback in the UK. It's UK release date is 7th November, so there's quite a wait, but I'm confident it'll be worth it!

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)

I hadn't heard of the series before either. These type of stories seem popular these days both in books and in television shows.
