Waiting On Wednesday #26 – The Continent by Keira Drake

Wednesday, November 02, 2016

is a weekly event hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place that spotlights upcoming releases that we´re eagerly anticipating with pure joy.






I noticed this book on another bloggers website and with all the blue, white and silver (or is it gray?) I got fascinated by the cover.


The blurb sounds kind of intriguing so I hope it delivers what it promises. Written by Keira Drake, an author I don´t know, this could make it onto the top ten for new authors read in 2017. If I am ever going to write a post with that title *smile*.



The Continent will be published on January 3, 2017 by Harlequin Teen (Hardcover).  











For her sixteenth birthday, Vaela Sun receives the most coveted gift in all the Spire - a trip to the Continent. It seems an unlikely destination for a holiday: a cold, desolate land where two “uncivilized” nations remain perpetually at war. Most citizens tour the Continent to see the spectacle and violence of battle – a thing long vanished in the Spire. For Vaela – a smart and talented apprentice cartographer – it is an opportunity to improve upon the maps she´s drawn of this vast, frozen land. But an idyllic aerial exploration is not to be had: the realities of war are made clear in a bloody battle seen from the heli-plane during the tour, leaving Vaela forever changed. And when a tragic accident leaves her stranded on the Continent, she has no illusions about the true nature of the danger she faces. Starving, alone, and lost in the middle of a war zone, Vaela must try to find a way home – but first, she must survive.

Happy reading

I am Vi, avid reader, book blogger and painter who loves to talk and write about books. A day without one in my hands is a wasted one. Skilled florist with a degree in writing - oh yes, that works. I like many genres, but horror is nothing for me! Have fun.
