Waiting on Wednesday–Ashes of Twilight by Kassy Tayler

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

I love the cover for Ashes of Twilight by Kassy Tayler.  November seems like a long way off, though, doesn’t it? What’s on your list this week?

 

Wren MacAvoy works as a coal miner for a domed city that was constructed in the mid-nineteenth century to protect the royal blood line of England when astronomers spotted a comet on a collision course with Earth. Humanity would be saved by the most groundbreaking technology of the time. But after nearly 200 years of life beneath the dome, society has become complacent, and the coal is running out. Plus, there are those who wonder, is there life outside the dome, or is the world still consumed by fire? When one of Wren’s friends escapes the confines of the dome, he is burned alive and put on display as a warning to those seeking to disrupt the dome’s way of life. But Alex’s final words are haunting. "The sky is blue."

What happens next is a whirlwind of adventure, romance, conspiracy and the struggle to stay alive in a world where nothing is as it seems. Wren unwittingly becomes a catalyst for a revolution that destroys the dome, and the only way to survive might be to embrace what the entire society has feared their entire existence

In stores November 2012

    Wow! I swoon with excitement, there’s so much to like here. It sounds like it could possibly be steampunk? Or maybe I’m reading too much into the clockwork gears? I like the bird on the cover – kind of like the canary in the coal mine. Thanks for recommending it.
