This week I am waiting on
Last Star Burning by Caitlin Sangster
Publication Date: October 10th 2017
Sev is branded with the mark of a criminal—a star burned into her hand. That’s the penalty for being the daughter of the woman who betrayed their entire nation.
Now her mother’s body is displayed above Traitor’s Arch, kept in a paralyzed half sleep by the same plague that destroyed the rest of the world. And as further punishment, Sev is forced to do hard labor to prove that she’s more valuable alive than dead.
When the government blames Sev for a horrific bombing, she must escape the city or face the chopping block. Unimaginable dangers lurk outside the city walls, and Sev’s only hope of survival lies with the most unlikely person—Howl, the chairman’s son. Though he promises to lead her to safety, Howl has secrets, and Sev can’t help but wonder if he knows more about her past—and her mother’s crimes—than he lets on.
But in a hostile world, trust is a luxury. Even when Sev’s life and the lives of everyone she loves may hang in the balance.
Now this is my kind of fantasy. Last Star Burning sounds dark, dangerous and full of betrayal. Sev’s position in this world is clearly dangerous. Everyone suspects her and she’s an easy target for people to accuse of crimes she had no part in. This is the kind of book where you trust no one and I can’t wait to unravels the secrets of this world.
What’s your most anticipted book?
