Waiting on Wednesday (22)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly awaiting.

by Diana Peterfreund
Expected Publication: June 12th, 2012

Goodreads Summary: Generations ago, a genetic experiment gone wrong—the Reduction—decimated humanity, giving rise to a Luddite nobility who outlawed most technology.

Elliot North has always known her place in this world. Four years ago Elliot refused to run away with her childhood sweetheart, the servant Kai, choosing duty to her family’s estate over love. Since then the world has changed: a new class of Post-Reductionists is jumpstarting the wheel of progress, and Elliot’s estate is foundering, forcing her to rent land to the mysterious Cloud Fleet, a group of shipbuilders that includes renowned explorer Captain Malakai Wentforth—an almost unrecognizable Kai. And while Elliot wonders if this could be their second chance, Kai seems determined to show Elliot exactly what she gave up when she let him go.

But Elliot soon discovers her old friend carries a secret—one that could change their society . . . or bring it to its knees. And again, she’s faced with a choice: cling to what she’s been raised to believe, or cast her lot with the only boy she’s ever loved, even if she’s lost him forever.



This book definitely sounds like my cup of tea! Not very often we hear a story where they don't choose love over duty. Normally it's they choose love and then struggle with the repercussions. Plus, I really love the cover which is always a bonus. And we don't have to wait very long for this one to come out, 6 more days!
What are you "Waiting On"?

  3. Sounds great and the cover is beautiful. I agree there aren't a lot of stories where they don't choose love over duty. That makes the story stand out even more.
