The Alchemy of Forever by Avery Williams
Summary via Goodreads:
Seraphina’s first love made her immortal…her second might get her killed. Incarnation is a new series that introduces a fresh mythology perfect for fans of bestselling series like The Immortals by Alyson Noel and Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.
After spending six hundred years on earth, Seraphina Ames has seen it all. Eternal life provides her with the world’s riches, but at a very high price: innocent lives. Centuries ago, her boyfriend, Cyrus, discovered a method of alchemy that allows them to swap bodies with other humans, jumping from one vessel to the next, taking the human’s life in the process. No longer able to bear the guilt of what she’s done, Sera escapes from Cyrus and vows to never kill again.
Then sixteen-year-old Kailey Morgan gets into a horrific car accident right in front of her, and Sera accidentally takes over her body. For the first time, Sera finds herself enjoying the life of the person she’s inhabiting—and falls for the human boy who lives next door. But Cyrus will stop at nothing until she’s his again, and every moment she stays, she’s putting herself and the people she’s grown to care for in great danger. Will Sera have to give up the one thing that’s eluded her for centuries: true love?
Why am I looking forward to The Alchemy of Forever? If the stunning cover wasn't enough to entice me into reading it, there's alchemy and romance. I love this version of immortality and I can't wait to see how Sera's story develops! I actually saw this as someone else's WoW pick last week and well, I instantly added it to my TBR list!
The Alchemy of Forever by Avery Williams is published by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, a part of Simon & Schuster, and it's expected publication date is January 3, 2012.
So, what are you waiting on this week?
I know it's been really quiet on the blog this week, but things have been insane lately. Fear not though, for I've gotten a bunch of reviews written and now I'm going to start working on comments--because I've been terrible about them lately, sorry! D:
