This week, I absolutely can't wait for...
The Pledge by Kimberly Derting
Words are the most dangerous weapon of all.I haven't read Kimberly Derting's first two novels yet, The Body Finder and Desires of the Dead, even though I want to soooooo badly because I've heard and read so many great reviews on it. But then I heard that she's writing like a dystopian/sci-fi type novel and I was like, "COOL!" because I'm currently obsessed with dystopian :D This comes out on November 15th!
In the violent country of Ludania, the classes are strictly divided by the language they speak. The smallest transgression, like looking a member of a higher class in the eye while they are speaking their native tongue, results in immediate execution. Seventeen-year-old Charlaina has always been able to understand the languages of all classes, and she’s spent her life trying to hide her secret. The only place she can really be free is the drug-fueled underground clubs where people go to shake off the oppressive rules of the world they live in. It's there that she meets a beautiful and mysterious boy named Max who speaks a language she's never heard before . . . and her secret is almost exposed.
Charlie is intensely attracted to Max, even though she can’t be sure where his real loyalties lie. As the emergency drills give way to real crisis and the violence escalates, it becomes clear that Charlie is the key to something much bigger: her country’s only chance for freedom from the terrible power of a deadly regime.
What are you guys waiting for this week?
