Waiting on Wednesday - Radiance by Alyson Noel

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that are being eagerly anticipated.

Radiance by Alyson Noel
Young Adult/Middle Grade - Immortals Spin-off #1
August 31st 2010 by St. Martin's Griffin

Welcome to the Here and Now.

Riley Bloom left her sister, Ever, in the world of the living and crossed the bridge into the afterlife—a place called Here, where time is always Now. Riley and her dog, Buttercup, have been reunited with her parents and are just settling into a nice, relaxing death when she’s summoned before The Council. They let her in on a secret—the afterlife isn’t just an eternity of leisure; Riley has to work. She’s been assigned a job, Soul Catcher, and a teacher, Bodhi, a curious boy she can’t quite figure out.

Riley, Bodhi, and Buttercup return to earth for her first assignment, a Radiant Boy who’s been haunting a castle in England for centuries. Many Soul Catchers have tried to get him to cross the bridge and failed. But he’s never met Riley...

Although I wasn't in love with Noel's Everworld, I really did enjoy her sister. I am really looking forward to hearing her own story - especially as it involves a her dog!


  1. I didn't realize Alyson Noel was doing a pin off. I really like 1 and 2 in the immortals series but I've tried to read Shadowland and I just can't get through it. This new spin off sounds a little interesting, I just might read it. Great post!

  2. ooh! I haven't heard of this one...adding it to my WL..thanks!

  3. so cute. I haven't read Evermore yet but I do want too and this cover is cute. hope you like the spin off better!!

    I don't know if you entered the Holey Donuts giveaway or not, but if you could check out this post and do so for my blog, it would mean a TON for my family and you can enter for the book afterwards too if you wish (White Cat by Holly Black ARC)!:
