From GoodReads
In post-apocalyptic America, Selah Chavez is crouched in long grass on a shore littered with the rusted metal remnants of a once-great city. It is the day before her eighteenth Born Remembrance, and she is hunting, though many people refuse to eat animal flesh, tainted by radiation during the Time of Sorrows. What Selah’s really after are Landers, mysterious people from a land across the big water who survive the delirium-inducing passage in small boats that occasionally crash against the shoreline. She knows she should leave the capture to the men, but Landers bring a good price from the Company and are especially prized if they keep the markings they arrive with.

Everything falls to pieces when the Lander Selah catches is stolen by her brothers–and Selah wakes up the next morning to find the Lander’s distinctive mark has suddenly appeared on her own flesh. Once the hunter, Selah is now one of the hunted, and she knows only one person who can help her–Bohdi Locke, the Lander her brothers hope to sell.

Why I'm Waiting:
I've really come to enjoy post-apocalyptic/dytopian based books. There is such a wonderful mesh of futuristic and primitive living that works. I just recently heard of this book and it caught my attention. The premise sounds really good and like it will be a thrilling book.

What are you waiting on?


  1. This sounds good! I hope you like it. Though I need a break from dystopian books for now.. hehe

    Here's my Wednesday post.


Thanks for stopping by. Leave a word, leave a line, I would love to hear what you have to say.
