Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.
So here’s what I’m waiting on this week!
Defy the Stars
Author: Claudia Gray
Series: Untitled #1
Genre: YA, Sci-Fi
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: April 4th 2017
Noemi Vidal is a teen soldier from the planet Genesis, once a colony of Earth that’s now at war for its independence. The humans of Genesis have fought Earth’s robotic “mech” armies for decades with no end in sight.
After a surprise attack, Noemi finds herself stranded in space on an abandoned ship where she meets Abel, the most sophisticated mech prototype ever made. One who should be her enemy. But Abel’s programming forces him to obey Noemi as his commander, which means he has to help her save Genesis–even though her plan to win the war will kill him.
Together they embark on a daring voyage through the galaxy. Before long, Noemi begins to realize Abel may be more than a machine, and, for his part, Abel’s devotion to Noemi is no longer just a matter of programming.
Why I’m Waiting
I seem to be on a Science Fiction kick this year. Either that or that’s what seems to be the most popular to publish nowadays. I won’t complain though, this one sounds amazing and the cover is freaking gorgeous!
P.S. Claudia Gray is the author of the Firebird and Spellcaster Series!
