Welcome to York, England.
Mist lingers in the streets.
Narrow buildings cast long shadows.
This is the most haunted city in the world. . . .
Miranda Tennant arrives in York with a terrible, tragic secret. She is eager to lose herself amid the quaint cobblestones, hoping she won’t run into the countless ghosts who supposedly roam the city. . .Then she meets Nick, an intense, dark-eyed boy who knows all of York’s hidden places and histories. Miranda wonders if Nick is falling for her, but she is distracted by another boy — one even more handsome and mysterious than Nick. He lives in the house across from Miranda and seems desperate to send her some sort of message. Could this boy be one of York’s haunted souls? Soon, Miranda realizes that something dangerous — and deadly — is being planned. And she may have to face the darkest part of herself in order to unravel the mystery — and find redemption.
OMG! This is coming out so soon! I cant wait. I am a huge fan of Ruined, one of Paula Morris' books. And I loved how Paula writes her story, especially the settings. This book was set in York England, while Ruined was set New Orleans the oldest and most haunted city. I am like screaming inside, this one is going to be much darker than Ruined.
- Read my reviews: Ruined by Paula Morris is going to be in a film version.
Expected publication: October 4th 2011 by HarperCollins Publishers
The year is 2032, sixteen years after a deadly virus—and the vaccine intended to protect against it—wiped out most of the earth’s population. The night before eighteen-year-old Eve’s graduation from her all-girls school she discovers what really happens to new graduates, and the horrifying fate that awaits her. Fleeing the only home she’s ever known, Eve sets off on a long, treacherous journey, searching for a place she can survive. Along the way she encounters Caleb, a rough, rebellious boy living in the wild. Separated from men her whole life, Eve has been taught to fear them, but Caleb slowly wins her trust...and her heart. He promises to protect her, but when soldiers begin hunting them, Eve must choose between true love and her life.
I'm also anxious to read this book, apart from its gorgeous cover, I also loved the idea of reading Eve's journey out in a cruel world to survive and lets not forget having a bad-boy type Caleb to accompany her *giggles*. I am very picky with dystopian books and I will definitely read this one. So that's all! what's yours? Let's check it out!
