“Waiting on Wednesday” is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine. It showcases upcoming releases we’re anticipating!
My pick of the week is:
The Murder Complex (The Murder Complex #1)
By: Lindsay Cummings
Coming: 10 June 2014
Publisher: HarperCollins, Greenwillow Books
An action-packed, blood-soaked, futuristic debut thriller set in a world where the murder rate is higher than the birthrate. For fans of Moira Young’s Dust Lands series, La Femme Nikita, and the movie Hanna.
Meadow Woodson, a fifteen-year-old girl who has been trained by her father to fight, to kill, and to survive in any situation, lives with her family on a houseboat in Florida. The state is controlled by The Murder Complex, an organization that tracks the population with precision.
The plot starts to thicken when Meadow meets Zephyr James, who is—although he doesn’t know it—one of the MC’s programmed assassins. Is their meeting a coincidence? Destiny? Or part of a terrifying strategy? And will Zephyr keep Meadow from discovering the haunting truth about her family?
Action-packed, blood-soaked, and chilling, this is a dark and compelling debut novel by Lindsay Cummings.
Why I’m excited:
This sounds so exciting! It’s an intriguing thought that the death rate is higher than the birthrate. How long could a population survive in a situation like this? Of course, as a parent, a murder rate like that makes me super nervous. I know a few bloggers who have loved it, so I’m excited to jump in!
Why I need you to be excited:
A debut author! She needs some love! (: I think it’s a brilliant concept and can see this series doing well. Come check out this debut with me!
