Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we we're waiting for.

This week I'm waiting on the third book in the Birthmarked Trilogy. I reviewed the first two in the series, Birthmarked and Prized, yesterday. Despite some flaws, these books were very readable and enjoyable, so I'm happily awaiting the conclusion.

Promised Carah M. O'Brien

Expected publication: October 2, 2012

Summary from Goodreads:

After defying the ruthless Enclave, surviving the wasteland, and upending the rigid matriarchy of Sylum, Gaia Stone now faces her biggest challenge ever. She must lead the people of Sylum back to the Enclave and persuade the Protectorat to grant them refuge from the wasteland. In Gaia’s absence, the Enclave has grown more cruel, more desperate to experiment on mothers from outside the wall, and now the stakes of cooperating or rebelling have never been higher. Is Gaia ready, as a leader, to sacrifice what—or whom—she loves most?

What's interesting about this series is that the first two books establish two different dystopian societies with two similar, yet very different, genetic issues and this third book appears poised to merge the two societies. So really, it could be interesting or a total disaster. Either way, I want to find out!

  7. I've never heard of these books before, but they sound super interesting. Plus I've been on a dystopian themed reading binge for a while now, so this sounds like a great addition to that.
