Waiting On: Ashes to Ashes by Melissa C. Walker

Ashes to Ashes by Melissa C. Walker
To be published: December 23, 2013 by Katherine Tegen Books
Ashes to Ashes
The book is the first in a two-book series, and it's about a girl named Callie, whose life is cut short by a tragic accident.

When she dies, instead of the nothingness she expects, she finds an ethereal plane called the Prism, in which you are taught to haunt your loved ones, to help them move on from your death.

It's both painful and beautiful, and Callie struggles to find peace there. But there is also danger in this beyond: Ghosts who will do anything, and hurt anyone, in order to live again. [goodreads]

Melissa Walker is an author I adore!  Unbreak My Heart was one of my favorite reads from last year, so of course I am excited to see something new from her.  This particular novel sounds incredibly interesting.. ghosts? after life? I sense some creepiness here, but in the best way possible.

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


  1. YES! I can't wait for this one. I love Melissa Walker and OH MY GOODNESS how beautiful is that cover??? Fantastic pick today, G. I can't wait to get my hands on this one. And YAY for a two-book series.

  2. Ooh, this one does sound good. And just two books? I'm starting to see more and more of these (so no middle book syndrome). Great pick! ~Pam

  3. Given how much I disliked the last Melissa C. Walker novel I read (Unbreak My Heart) I'm reluctant to read another. That said, the premise is certainly unique and sounds like something I might enjoy. I think I'll hold off and wait to read a couple of reviews before deciding whether or not to add this book to my ever-growing TBR list.

  4. This comment has been removed by the author.

  5. Not only does this book sound amazing, but that cover is to die for! I'll be sure to add this to my TBR pile. ;)

  6. This sounds really good! I like that it's a 2 book series (I'm sooo tired of trilogies!). I'll have to add this to my tbr. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Whoa, this sounds super crazy but really good! Goodreads says "If I Stay meets Ghost" so I'm way intrigued.

  8. I haven't read Unbreak My Heart, but I have heard great things (is there a way to not sing that title?). I'm curious about the plane and this sounds sad and eerie at the same time. Great pick!

  9. Nice pick, I've seen this on a couple of WoW's today and it's definitely on my wishlist!

    My WoW!

  10. I read Small Town Sinners by Melissa Walker and really enjoyed it! Ashes to Ashes sounds so interesting... and come on. The cover is gorgeous.
