“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that are being eagerly anticipated.
Under the Never Sky by Veronica RossiGoodreads – YA – February 7th 2012 by HarperCollins (US) / ATOM (UK)
EXILED from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland—known as the Death Shop—are slim. If the cannibals don’t get her, the violent energy storms will. She’s been taught that the very air she breathes can kill her. Then Aria meets an outsider named Perry. He’s wild—a savage— and her only hope of staying alive. Because they must, they will struggle together to survive. Aria and Perry forge an unlikely alliance—one that will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky.
OK, so I never planned to do a WoW for Under the Never Sky. I figured that you were all smart, and had already spotted the summary and cover online, after which you immediately added it to your wishlist. Fantastic summary, stunning cover, and great publisher = wishlist must. So, I kept my interest in this novel under wraps.
So, besides telling you how much I’ve (secretly, apparently) been longing for this book… I’d like to complain about the recently released UK cover. Because, OMG WT-bloody-F?? When I spotted this cover on Tez Says my first reaction was “oh dear, what poor novel ended up with that monstrosity?”… and then I saw the title. Let’s all start praying to every god in the phone book that there is still time for ATOM to correct this overly-tanned, PNR monstrosity of a cover!
