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?
