The books that I am waiting on this week are...
Above World by Jenn Reese-- February 14th
has lived her entire life under the ocean with the Coral Kampii in the
City of Shifting Tides. But after centuries spent hidden from the Above
World, her colony’s survival is in doubt. The Kampii’s breathing
necklaces are failing, but the elders are unwilling to venture above
water to seek answers. Only headstrong Aluna and her friend Hoku are
stubborn and bold enough to face the terrors of land to search for way
to save their people.
But can Aluna’s warrior spirit and Hoku’s tech-savvy keep them safe?
Set in a world where overcrowding has led humans to adapt—growing tails
to live under the ocean or wings to live on mountains—here is a ride
through a future where greed and cruelty have gone unchecked, but the
loyalty of friends remains true.
Revived by Cat Patrick-- May 8th
As a little girl, Daisy Appleby was killed in a school bus crash. Moments after the accident, she was brought back to life.
A secret government agency has developed a drug called Revive that
can bring people back from the dead, and Daisy Appleby, a test subject,
has been Revived five times in fifteen years. Daisy takes extraordinary
risks, knowing that she can beat death, but each new death also means a
new name, a new city, and a new life. When she meets Matt McKean, Daisy
begins to question the moral implications of Revive, and as she
discovers the agency’s true goals, she realizes she’s at the center of
something much larger — and more sinister — than she ever imagined.
