Waiting on Wednesday: In The Afterlight

Wednesday, 22 October 2014

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where the participants tell their readers about an upcoming release they are waiting to read. This week I've picked In The Afterlight by Alexandra Bracken.

Ruby can't look back. Fractured by an unbearable loss, she and the kids who survived the government's attack on Los Angeles travel north to regroup. With them is a prisoner: Clancy Gray, son of the president, and one of the few people Ruby has encountered with abilities like hers. Only Ruby has any power over him, and just one slip could lead to Clancy wreaking havoc on their minds. They are armed only with a volatile secret: proof of a government conspiracy to cover up the real cause of IANN, the disease that has killed most of America's children and left Ruby and others like her with powers the government will kill to keep contained. 

But internal strife may destroy their only chance to free the rehabilitation camps housing thousands of other Psi kids. Meanwhile, reunited with Liam, the boy she would-and did-sacrifice everything for to keep alive, Ruby must face the painful repercussions of having tampered with his memories of her. 

She turns to Cole, his older brother, to provide the intense training she knows she will need to take down Gray and the government. But Cole has demons of his own, and one fatal mistake may be the spark that sets the world on fire

This is one of my absolute favourite dystopian series - it's action packed with dynamic characters and a storyline that always keeps you on the edge of your seat! If this book is anything like the first two - it's going to be EPIC. 

Releasing 1st November 2014


  1. I'm so scared how this book will go *hides behind hands*

  2. Yes, yes, yes! Great pick! :) I'm really excited to see how the series concludes... though kinda nervous too.
