Today, our pick is Defy the Stars by the ever glorious, ever talented Claudia Gray!
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. It’s a weekly meme that allows bloggers to talk about what upcoming book they’re most looking forward to read!
Expected publication: April 4th 2017 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
She's a soldier.
Noemi Vidal is seventeen years old and sworn to protect her planet, Genesis. She's willing to risk anything--including her own life. To their enemies on Earth, she's a rebel.
He's a machine.
Abandoned in space for years, utterly alone, Abel has advanced programming that's begun to evolve. He wants only to protect his creator, and to be free. To the people of Genesis, he's an abomination.
Noemi and Abel are enemies in an interstellar war, forced by chance to work together as they embark on a daring journey through the stars. Their efforts would end the fighting for good, but they're not without sacrifice. The stakes are even higher than either of them first realized, and the more time they spend together, the more they're forced to question everything they'd been taught was true
Why I'm waiting:
(I know, I know. Stop looking at me like that.)
But I trust Claudia's writing explicitly; she wrote the Firebird trilogy, which will forever rank as one of my favorite trilogies of all time. So I'm eagerly awaiting this book!
