Waiting on Wednesday #26


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine where we spotlight books we are eagerly anticipating.

Solstice by P.J. Hoover

Expected Publication: June 18th, 2013

Preorder: Amazon*/ Barnes & Noble / Book Depository

*I receive a small monetary kickback from Amazon purchases

Piper’s world is dying.

Each day brings hotter temperatures and heat bubbles that threaten to destroy the earth. Amid this global heating crisis, Piper lives under the oppressive rule of her mother, who suffocates her even more than the weather does. Everything changes on her eighteenth birthday, when her mother is called away on a mysterious errand and Piper seizes her first opportunity for freedom.

Piper discovers a universe she never knew existed—a sphere of gods and monsters—and realizes that her world is not the only one in crisis. While gods battle for control of the Underworld, Piper’s life spirals out of control as she struggles to find the answer to the secret that has been kept from her since birth.

An imaginative melding of mythology and dystopia, Solstice is the first YA novel by talented newcomer P. J. Hoover.

I am rather curious about the mix of mythology and dystopia. It sounds like something with the possibility to be rather unique.

So what are you waiting on this week?

  5. This one seems really interesting, especially with mythology, but I’m extremely picky about dystopian novels, so I’ll have to wait for reviews first. Thanks for sharing! 😀
