Waiting On Wednesday (50) Inhuman by Kat Falls

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine. For this week's Waiting On Wednesday I chose Inhuman by Kat Falls.

Title: Inhuman
Series: Fetch #1
Genre: Post-Apocalyptic, Science Fiction, Fantasy
Publisher: Scholastic
Expected Publication: October 1,2013

In a world ravaged by mutation, a teenage girl must travel into the forbidden Savage Zone to recover lost artifacts or her father’s life is forfeit.

America has been ravaged by a war that has left the eastern half of the country riddled with mutation. Many of the people there exhibit varying degrees of animal traits. Even the plantlife has gone feral.

Crossing from west to east is supposed to be forbidden, but sometimes it’s necessary. Some enter the Savage Zone to provide humanitarian relief. Sixteen-year-old Lane’s father goes there to retrieve lost artifacts—he is a Fetch. It’s a dangerous life, but rewarding—until he’s caught.

Desperate to save her father, Lane agrees to complete his latest job. That means leaving behind her life of comfort and risking life and limb—and her very DNA—in the Savage Zone. But she’s not alone. In order to complete her objective, Lane strikes a deal with handsome, roguish Rafe. In exchange for his help as a guide, Lane is supposed to sneak him back west. But though Rafe doesn’t exhibit any signs of “manimal” mutation, he’s hardly civilized . . . and he may not be trustworthy.

Why Am I waiting?

I really love Post Apocalyptic books so when I cam across this one on  Goodreads I knew it was one I had to add to the TBR. I am really curious not only about the Savage Zone but also the feral plants and Manimal mutations. I also wonder why going into the savage zone will risk Lane's DNA. I'm going to guess because the mutants will want to breed the mutation out of them maybe but I suppose I'll have to wait and see for any true inclination as to why. 
That about wraps up my Waiting on Wednesday for this week. Feel free to leave me the link to your Wednesday memes  in the comments below so I can check them out as well! I love reading them all.

Out of curiosity, Will you be starting this series? What do you think of the cover?
If you were mutated into animal which would you like to be and why?


  1. This one sounds awesome! Mutations and safe zones and traveling to forbidden place in a post apocalyptic world!
    My WOW

    1. I love that the book sounds like it might have quite a bit of Action and Adventure in it as well.

  2. It sounds... strange and definitvely post-apocalyptic. Not my ususal tpye of read, but it does sound good. Nice pick! My WoW

  3. That machete looks like an excellent weapon. I would want to mutate into some sort of sea creature. Gills would be great. :)

    1. Machete is definitely my hand weapon of choice. Gills would be cool but only if you could breathe normally as well.

  4. Now this one is new for me. It really sounds interesting and I love when you mix dystopian novels and fantasy. I might give this one a try. Thanks for sharing :)

    Our WOW

  5. That cover is awesome! Chick looks dangerous. :P And the premise is pretty exciting, too! How have I not heard of this one before?!? Also, I always fall for characters named Rafe. ;) Great pick! Thanks for sharing & stopping by! Off to add this to my TBR! :D

  6. Great choice! I love anything dystopian or post-apocalyptic! Surely going to add this on my TBR pile!

    1. I really like the color choices for the cover. The golds and browns really set the Post apocalyptic feel.

  10. I definitely like the sound of this one and that forbidden Savage zone! I love the unique concept of mutations, too. Hmmmm... I'd want to be something powerful so, since I'm a Leo, I'm going to go with a lion! Thanks for putting this one on my TBR pile and for stopping by :D

  11. I love WOW's because I always find out about new books this way. Great pick. This sounds utterly fantastic.


  12. Oh yay, this one sounds EXCELLENT! I'm a big fan of post-apocalyptic fiction, as well, so this one seems right down my alley, too.
