Waiting on Wednesday (1)

Hello lovely bloggers! I'm kind of new in the book blogging industry. I've just started blogging 2 days ago and, and, nothing. I just wanted to say...


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

My First WoW:
Enclave (Razorland #1)

Summary:

WELCOME TO THE APOCALYPSE

In Deuce's world, people earn the right to a name only if they survive their first fifteen years. By that point, each unnamed 'brat' has trained into one of three groups-Breeders, Builders, or Hunters, identifiable by the number of scars they bear on their arms.

Deuce has wanted to be a Huntress for as long as she can remember. As a Huntress, her purpose is clear--to brave the dangerous tunnels outside the enclave and bring back meat to feed the group while evading ferocious monsters known as Freaks. She's worked toward this goal her whole life, and nothing's going to stop her, not even a beautiful, brooding Hunter named Fade.

When the mysterious boy becomes her partner, Deuce's troubles are just beginning. Down below, deviation from the rules is punished swiftly and harshly, and Fade doesn't like following orders. At first she thinks he's crazy, but as death stalks their sanctuary, and it becomes clear the elders don't always know best, Deuce wonders if Fade might be telling the truth.

Her partner confuses her; she's never known a boy like him before, as prone to touching her gently as to using his knives with feral grace. As Deuce's perception shifts, so does the balance in the constant battle for survival. The mindless Freaks, once considered a threat only due to their sheer numbers, show signs of cunning and strategy... but the elders refuse to heed any warnings. Despite imminent disaster, the enclave puts their faith in strictures and sacrifice instead. No matter how she tries, Deuce cannot stem the dark tide that carries her far from the only world she's ever known.

Why am I waiting for Enclave? I am currently experiencing the Hypodystopia Syndrome. I need to read more dystopia or I might end up permanently paralyzed. My doctor also says so. You understand now? Besides, who's not going to fall in love with the summary? I'm not the biggest fan of the cover, but after staring at it for 5 minutes, I decided that it's one of the mysterious covers I've seen this week. Don't you think so?

  8. Oh my, I want this book so terribly! It was actually my first Waiting on Wednesday feature, too. The cover is trés macho and dark. I've been suffering through dystopian withdrawal symptoms, too, my friend. From what I hear, they are very nearly fatal O_O

  10. Love your blog name - very eye-catching! :D I'm a fan of dystopian books too and 2011 looks like a superb year for them. I'm co-hosting a dystopian YA blog event during March and April if you'd like to drop on by :)
