Waiting on Wednesday - Of Metal and Wishes by Sarah Fine

Hi everyone, thank-you so much for stopping by my WoW!

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My WoW for this week is Of Metal and Wishes by Sarah Fine which sounds amazingly awesome! I have read Sarah Fine’s Guards of the Shadowlands series and adore her writing and the wonderful characters she writes. I’m definitely more than eager for this one.

Of Metal and Wishes
Author: Sarah Fine
Series: -
Genre: Young Adult
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books
Release date: 5th August 2014

Synopsis. (Goodreads)

There are whispers of a ghost in the slaughterhouse where sixteen-year-old Wen assists her father in his medical clinic—a ghost who grants wishes to those who need them most. When one of the Noor, men hired as cheap factory labor, humiliates Wen, she makes an impulsive wish of her own, and the Ghost grants it. Brutally.

Guilt-ridden, Wen befriends the Noor, including their outspoken leader, a young man named Melik. At the same time, she is lured by the mystery of the Ghost and learns he has been watching her … for a very long time.

As deadly accidents fuel tensions within the factory, Wen must confront her growing feelings for Melik, who is enraged at the sadistic factory bosses and the prejudice faced by his people at the hand of Wen’s, and her need to appease the Ghost, who is determined to protect her against any threat—real or imagined. She must decide whom she can trust, because as her heart is torn, the factory is exploding around her … and she might go down with it..

What are most anticipating this week?
