Wishlist Wednesday #12:22 PM
Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Pen to Paper where we tell you about a book that is currently on our wishlist that we are excited for!
This week on Geraldine's Wishlist:
After a string of devastating hurricanes and a severe outbreak of Delta Fever, the Gulf Coast has been quarantined. Years later, residents of the Outer States are under the assumption that life in the Delta is all but extinct… but in reality, a new primitive society has been born.
Fen de la Guerre is living with the O-Positive blood tribe in the Delta when they are ambushed. Left with her tribe leader’s newborn, Fen is determined to get the baby to a better life over the wall before her blood becomes tainted. Fen meets Daniel, a scientist from the Outer States who has snuck into the Delta illegally. Brought together by chance, kept together by danger, Fen and Daniel navigate the wasteland of Orleans. In the end, they are each other’s last hope for survival.
Sherri L. Smith delivers an expertly crafted story about a fierce heroine whose powerful voice and firm determination will stay with you long after you’ve turned the last page. (Goodreads.com)
I first came across this book while browsing Goodreads, the beautiful cover completely drew me in *drools* and then right after I read the synopsis I was sold! I mean come on, quarantined after hurricanes and an epidemic of "Delta Fever"? Seems like an action-packed book to me! I think another thing that's a plus for me with this book is how closely the cover seems to mirror the synopsis (because let's face it, there's some random covers out there that completely mislead you nowadays). That being said, this is one of my most anticipated 2013 releases (March 7, 2013) that I can't wait to get my hands on!
