On My Wishlist (38)

In On My Wishlist I spotlight books that I'm really looking forward to. I know there's a meme Waiting on Wednesday and there even are others, but I'm going to rebel and do it how I want it (hehe). I'll feature the synopsis as posted on Goodreads and put a linkie to the Goodreads page of the book. This week: For Darkness Shows The Stars by Diana Peterfreund.

For Darkness Shows The Stars by Diana Peterfreund
Expected publication date: June 12th, 2012

Generations ago, a genetic experiment gone wrong—the Reduction—decimated humanity, giving rise to a Luddite nobility who outlawed most technology.

Eighteen-year-old Luddite Elliot North has always known her place in this caste system. Four years ago Elliot refused to run away with her childhood sweetheart, the servant Kai, choosing duty to her family’s estate over love. But now the world has changed: a new class of Post-Reductionists is jumpstarting the wheel of progress and threatening Luddite control; Elliot’s estate is floundering; and she’s forced to rent land to the mysterious Cloud Fleet, a group of shipbuilders that includes renowned explorer Captain Malakai Wentforth—an almost unrecognizable Kai. And while Elliott wonders if this could be their second chance, Kai seems determined to show Elliot exactly what she gave up when she abandoned him.

But Elliot soon discovers her childhood friend carries a secret—-one that could change the society in which they live…or bring it to its knees. And again, she’s faced with a choice: cling to what she’s been raised to believe, or cast her lot with the only boy she’s ever loved, even if she has lost him forever.

The cover combined with the synopsis speak for themselves, methinks. I've not read anything by Diana Peterfreund yet (I know! I know! I shall do that soon!) but this book.. This book you guys, I simply cannot imagine this being a book I won't like. Or love. It's just.. So pretty and it sounds spectacular! Is it June yet?


  1. This sounds really good. Plus, that cover looks amazing!

  2. I've heard good things about this one so far, but even if it weren't good, just staring at this pretty cover would be enough reason to buy it. :D
