Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting.

Sixteen years have passed since a deadly
virus wiped out most of the Earth’s population. After learning of the terrifying
part she and her classmates were fated to play in the rebuilding of New America,
eighteen-year-old Eve fled to the wilds and Califia, a haven for women
determined to live outside the oppressive rule of the king of New America.
However, her freedom came at a price: she was forced to leave Caleb, the boy she
loves, wounded and alone at the city gates. Eve quickly learns that Califia may
not be as safe as it seems and soon finds herself in the City of Sand and the
palace of the king. There she uncovers the real reason he was so intent on her
capture, and the unbelievable role he intends her to fill. When she is finally

at what it means to love” is sure to appeal to fans who crave the high-stakes
adventure of The Hunger Games and the irresistible love story of Romeo and
