On My Wish List is a fun weekly event hosted by Workaday Reads and runs every Saturday. It's where we list all the books we desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming.
Author: Elizabeth Scott
Publication Date: September 16, 2010
Grace was raised to be an Angel, a herald of death by suicide bomb. But she refuses to die for the cause, and now Grace is on the run, daring to dream of freedom. In search of a border she may never reach, she travels among malevolent soldiers on a decrepit train crawling through the desert. Accompanied by the mysterious Kerr, Grace struggles to be invisible, but the fear of discovery looms large as she recalls the history and events that delivered her uncertain fate.
I've read a few of Scott's other books and really enjoyed them. This one seems like a much deeper subject matter though and I'm curious to see how it works. We don't get many stories like these, from the points of view of people who do crazy and horrible acts. I'm adding this to my list of next purchases because this has been on my wish list for far too long.
What about you? What's your heart's desire this week? Leave me a link and I'll come check it out!
