Wish List Wednesday: Light of the Oracle

Light of the Oracle (Healer and Seer, 3) by Victoria Hanley, December 12, 2006. Published by Laurel Leaf.
Bryn is the daughter of a humble stone-cutter. So no one is more surprised than she when the Master Priest seeks her out to become a student at the famous Temple of the Oracle; a training school for future priests and priestesses.
But her innately gifted nature proves a threat to the evil embedded within the Temple, and Bryn encounters unimaginable danger. Is she able to struggle with the unknown and to save the whole world from untold misery? Or will the powers of darkness succeed?

Why: I may be still trying to get my hands on book two, but, I also still really want Light of the Oracle because I would very much like to (one day) finish this series! I'm just so curious as to how the series plays out...even after all these years.

Wish List Wednesday: Empire of Bones

Empire of Bones (Ashtown Burials, 3) by N.D. Wilson, October 22, 2013. Published by Random House Books for Young Readers.
Cyrus and Antigone Smith have thwarted Dr. Phoenix’s plans—for the moment. They’ve uncovered a new threat from the transmortals and managed to escape with their lives. Their next adventure will take them deep into the caves below Ashtown, where they will look for help from those imprisoned in one of Ashtown’s oldest tombs.

Why: I really enjoyed reading The Dragon's Tooth and since I have The Drowned Vault on my TBR stack...I'm thinking that I shall be needing this one as soon as possible! Definitely looking forward to more adventures with Cyrus and Antigone.
