Within the walls of Baalboden, beneath the shadow of the city’s brutal leader, Rachel Adams has a secret. While other girls sew dresses, host dinner parties, and obey their male Protectors, Rachel knows how to survive in the wilderness and deftly wield a sword. When her father, Jared, fails to return from a courier mission and is declared dead, the Commander assigns Rachel a new Protector, her father’s apprentice, Logan—the same boy Rachel declared her love for two years ago, and the same boy who handed her heart right back to her. Left with nothing but fierce belief in her father’s survival, Rachel decides to escape and find him herself. But treason against the Commander carries a heavy price, and what awaits her in the Wasteland could destroy her.

At nineteen, Logan McEntire is many things. Orphan. Outcast. Inventor. As apprentice to the city’s top courier, Logan is focused on learning his trade so he can escape the tyranny of Baalboden. But his plan never included being responsible for his mentor’s impulsive daughter. Logan is determined to protect her, but when his escape plan goes wrong and Rachel pays the price, he realizes he has more at stake than disappointing Jared.

As Rachel and Logan battle their way through the Wasteland, stalked by a monster that can’t be killed and an army of assassins out for blood, they discover romance, heartbreak, and a truth that will incite a war decades in the making. (Goodreads)

Why am I Waiting on this book??

First, I'm going to start by saying that the cover is absolutely stunning. What is it me and the pretty dresses?? I am SO not a dressy person.

Ahem...

Second, this story sounds great! The main character, Rachel, sounds like she's going to be a kick-butt heroine, and those are my favorite kinds of characters. Logan sounds pretty awesome as well.

I can't wait to check this out!

What are you Waiting on this week??

  2. If you haven't read yet "Before I fall" by Lauren Oliver, read it. It's a very powerful book. Wonderful I would say, and quite different than others. I consider it much better than Delirium (as a book, not as a story).

  10. She's not wearing a dress! That's a cape and pants. We were all joking last week that it's nice to see a fantasy heroine in a pair of pants for once.
