Waiting on Wednesday: Flashfall

"Waiting on" Wednesday, or WOW, is a meme created by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. Join in the discussion to see what upcoming releases we're currently buzzing about.

My process of choosing a book to read pretty much involves staring at the cover, envisioning what the story might be about (based on the cover), checking out the author, reading the description, then finally, staring at the cover some more.

As you see, I'm all about the covers! And this week's cover makes me feel like I'm on the verge of discovering something fantastic, a novel that I can dive into and get lost. I love science fiction/fantasy themes and this sounds ah-mazing!

Here's this week's pick:

Orion is a Subpar, expected to mine the tunnels of Outpost Five, near the deadly flash curtain. For generations, her people have chased cirium—the only element that can shield humanity from the curtain’s radioactive particles. She and her caving partner, Dram work the most treacherous tunnel, fighting past flash bats and tunnel gulls, in hopes of mining enough cirium to earn their way into the protected city.

But when newcomers arrive at Outpost Five, Orion uncovers disturbing revelations that make her question everything she thought she knew about life on both sides of the cirium shield. As conditions at the outpost grow increasingly dangerous, it’s up to Orion to forge a way past the flashfall, beyond all boundaries, beyond the world as she knows it.

Flashfall by Jenny Moyer releases November 15, 2016 from Henry Holt & Co. (BYR)
