Waiting On Wednesday (23)



Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine. For this week's Waiting On Wednesday I chose *drumroll* Ashes Of Twilight by Kassy Tayler


Expected Publication:November 13,2012
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.

Why Am I Waiting
I love books that deal with civilizations that for whatever reason become sheltered from the rest of the world. This could mean they hunker down underground,underwater or in this case survive in a dome. Of course the majority of the time the plot is predictable but I still love these type of books and will continue reading nonetheless.

That wraps up my Waiting on Wednesday, leave me the link to yours so I can check it out as well! Have you heard of this book before? Do you find books like these to predictable? Do you think you could live under a dome? Let me Know In The Comments Below! I love reading your responses.
