Waiting On Wednesday (46) The Ward by Jordana Frankel
Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine. For this week's Waiting On Wednesday I chose *drumroll* The Ward by Jordana Frankel.
Sixteen-year-old Ren is a daredevil mobile racer who will risk everything to survive in the Ward, what remains of a water-logged Manhattan. To save her sister, who is suffering from a deadly illness thought to be caused by years of pollution, Ren accepts a secret mission from the government: to search for a freshwater source in the Ward, with the hope of it leading to a cure.
However, she never expects that her search will lead to dangerous encounters with a passionate young scientist; a web of deceit and lies; and an earth-shattering mystery that’s lurking deep beneath the water’s rippling surface.
Jordana Frankel’s ambitious debut novel and the first in a two-book series, The Ward is arresting, cinematic, and thrilling—perfect for fans of Scott Westerfeld or Ann Aguirre.
Why Am I Waiting
First off, I love that this isn't a trilogy but two books. I just think at this particular time with trilogies so popular its a nice change of pace. Second, this sounds like a blend of Escape From New York, Mad Max, with a bit of Cameron Stracher's The Water Wars thrown in. If successfully pulled off this book could be epic!!!
Out of curiosity, Have you heard of The Ward?If so, Do you plan on reading it? What do you think of the premise? How about that cover?
Let me Know In The Comments Below! I love reading your responses.
That about wraps up my Waiting on Wednesday for this week. Feel free to leave me the link to your Wednesday memes so I can check them out as well!

I love the two books versus three, as well. So many 2nd books in trilogies end up as just filler these days. I have this from Edelweiss and hope to get to it soon. Hope we both love it! :) Thanks for sharing & stopping by!ReplyDelete
Awesome pick! I've been itching for this one :)ReplyDelete
Ohh I do agree that a two book series is sometimes a nice refreshing change!ReplyDelete
I have not heard of this book before but it is definitely being added to my TBR list!

I love that it is just two books. She could have totally milked it for the trilogy and didn't. :)ReplyDelete
Yup! I just hope in a way that they don't decide to trilogy it out later on.Delete
It seems like everyone is waiting on this one!! It's on my TBR!ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by :)

I like the idea of it being a two-book series, too. The cover reminds me Inception. Also, your quote w/Sam and Frodo? Had to reread it again. Gives me chills.ReplyDelete
It's a lovely quote for sure.Delete
I'm so excited for The Ward! That's so cool that it's two books. That's so rare in YA nowadays. I adore this cover too! So creepy yet telling.ReplyDelete
That is so true it's either stand alone, trilogy, or epic series.Delete
This is such a cool cover, I love when authors put cities under water:) Great choice!ReplyDelete
Here's my WOW.
I love that the cover doesn't have the girl Ren as the main focus but the city itself.Delete
Great choice! It looks amazing. :DReplyDelete

Jaime @ Two Chicks On Books
I've seen this book here and there. I'm still on the fence about reading it. Maybe after I see some reviews, I'll make a decision.ReplyDelete
Oh I AM SO EXCITED about this book (with caps too!), and in fact, I got an e-arc this week - eeeeeeep!!ReplyDelete
Nice! I can't wait to hear what you think!Delete
I've been looking forward to this one, but this is the first time I've seen that cover. So cool! I agree, this sounds like Mad Max and Escape from New York had a baby. :-) Wonderful WoW pick!ReplyDelete
I'm curious what cover you've seen. I know they change depending on country and I haven't seen one from outside the US yet.Delete
I am so excited that I just got this off Edelweiss! Love apocalyptic books! Thanks for stopping by!ReplyDelete
Oh I am so so so excited about reading this one! I want to read it soon but I have too many books to read. I guess that's a good problem to have but still. Excellent choice! Thanks for dropping by :) xxxReplyDelete
