Waiting on Wednesday #52: In the After

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

My pick for this week is:

 In the After

They hear the most silent of footsteps.
They are faster than anything you've ever seen.
And They won't stop chasing you...until you are dead.

Amy is watching TV when it happens, when the world is attacked by Them. These vile creatures are rapidly devouring mankind. Most of the population is overtaken, but Amy manages to escape—and even rescue “Baby,” a toddler left behind in the chaos. Marooned in Amy’s house, the girls do everything they can to survive—and avoid Them at all costs.

After years of hiding, they are miraculously rescued and taken to New Hope, a colony of survivors living in a former government research compound. While at first the colony seems like a dream with plenty of food, safety, and shelter, New Hope slowly reveals that it is far from ideal. And Amy soon realizes that unless things change, she’ll lose Baby—and much more.

Rebellious, courageous, and tender, this unforgettable duo will have you on the edge of your seat as you tear through the pulse-pounding narrow escapes and horrifying twists of fate in this thrilling debut from author Demitria Lunetta.
Lately, I have added several dystopians or post-apocalyptic books releasing in 2013 to my TBR list.  This book is one of them, and it sounds amazing.  I look forward to meeting Amy and Baby.

What are you Waiting On this Wednesday?

  1. I am curious about this one! The cover is kind of cool as well; creepy but a bit different than other titles out there. I should read more Dystopia and all that. That's usually the stuff Alicia reviews the most. lol
