Waiting on Wednesday (Steampunk Edition!)

Welcome to Waiting on Wednesday. This is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. This event was made to show off what you're looking forward to reading. 
The Tesla Institute is a premier academy that trains young time travelers called Rifters. Created by Nicola Tesla, the Institute seeks special individuals who can help preserve the time stream against those who try to alter it.The Hollows is a rogue band of Rifters who tear through time with little care for the consequences. Armed with their own group of lost teens--their only desire to find Tesla and put an end to his corruption of the time stream. Torn between them are Lex and Ember, two Rifters with no memories of their life before joining the time war. When Lex’s girlfriend dies during a mission, the only way he can save her is to retrieve the Dox, a piece of tech which allows Rifters to re-enter their own timeline without collapsing the time stream. But the Dox is hidden deep within the Telsa Institute, which means Lex must go into the enemy camp. It’s there he meets Ember, and the past that was stolen from them both comes flooding back. Now armed with the truth of who they are, Lex and Ember must work together to save the future before the battle for time destroys them both…again.

Check out Extracted, book one in The Lost Imperials series by Sherry Ficklin and Tyler Jolley. My attention was actually drawn to this book very recently...As love the cover and had noticed it before, but hadn't really looked it up or anything until directed to it early this morning. I'm definitely a fan of the website. As soon as I was done reading the homepage I was ready to head on over to Amazon to buy a copy then I was struck with an awful relaization...It doesn't come out until November...
I don't know what to do...I'm super sad...but super excited! Why don't you guys head over to the site and tell me if you feel the same: The Lost Imperials

ALSO...If you're just hopping through because of Waiting On Wednesday, you should stick around a while. My Annual Celebration of Steampunk: Let's Get Steamy, is going on and you can win lots of prizes and see some really cool Steampunk posts! Check out the links to the left or just scroll down!
