Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This week's pick is Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi, coming Febray 7, 2012 from Harper Teen.

Summary: Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland—nicknamed The Death Shop—are slim. If the cannibals don’t get her, the violent, electrified energy storms eventually will. In this dystopia, even the very air she breathes could kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild, dangerous—a savage. He’s also her only hope.

Perry needs Aria, too. She alone holds the key to his redemption. And their unlikely alliance will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky.



My Thoughts: Cannibals? Electrified energy storms? Air that kills you? Yeah. This one just sounds like a million kinds of awesome. It seems like the kind of dystopian that is obviously not our world and yet, one that we can all easily imaging it turning into in the coming years. Add in that who I assume will be the love interest is a savage?!? Yes please. And if he isn't the love interest, well, he's still a savage and he gets points from me.  Plus, I want to know why Aria is exiled. And what she has to do to survive. And why Perry needs redemption. Basically, I want this book like now. So someone should send it to me. Also, I love love love this cover. The colors are so stunning, and so well put together, mostly dark with a touch of light that ties it all together. The girl looks really intense, and pretty much bad ass, and I love the tree branch type stuff she's walking out of, or perhaps it's something else? Regardless. I like. And I want.

  5. I'm beyond excited for this one. It sounds like such a unique dystopian. And the cover is freakin' gorgeous! I added it to my wishlist when I saw it in the HarperTeen catalog without even reading the summary because of the cover. I'm so glad that it's got an amazing summary to match though.
