Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I'm picking:
The Murder Complex
(The Murder Complex #1) by
June 10th 2014
by Greenwillow / HarperCollins
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 Waiting:
I have been following the progress of this book for a while now. Back when the sale was first announced. I am really looking forward to it. It sounds so interesting and compelling.
