Are Kaleb's powers expanding, or is something very wrong?

Then the Hourglass is issued an ultimatum. Either they find Jack and the research he's stolen on the time gene, or time will be altered with devastating results.

As their romance deepens there’s one question they can’t ignore: How are they supposed to be together if Vincent can’t resist sacrificing himself to save others? Although Vincent promises that he’ll do whatever it takes to lead a normal life with Kate, will that mean letting innocent people die? When a new and surprising enemy reveals itself, Kate realizes that even more may be at stake—and that Vincent’s immortality is in jeopardy. 

Another 3 books that I can't wait for. 2012 has SO MANY AMAZING books coming out, I almost don't know where to start! I always try to put some very different books together when I have more than one I'd like to highlight for my WoWs and this week I've done just that! First off there's Waiting. This one looks emotional with a bit of a mystery attached. I can't wait to check this one out! Next we have Timepiece. I LOVED Hourglass. It was one of the best books I've read and when I heard there was a sequel I just about jumped for joy! And lastly, we have Until I Die. I have and still have to read Die For Me and I can't wait to check it out. Both covers are amazing and I've heard nothing but amazing things about the first book. What do you guys think of the books I've shared this week?

ETA: When this WoW was first put together and posted, the wrong synopsis was included for Waiting. Thanks to the author, Carol for bringing this to my attention. Sorry for the confusion! It's been updated and changed to the correct synopsis. Sorry Carol, sorry guys!
