Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m waiting on Flashfall by Jenny Moyer because DYSTOPIAN! I can’t get enough of books like this one. I like the idea that with this book the author has taken a catastrophic event and showing how it affected the world. AND I get this all from the blurb 😀 I cannot wait to read it and see just how it plays out for the characters who are really working hard for the remnants of humanity.Flashfall by Jenny Moyer

Orion is a Subpar, expected to mine the tunnels of Outpost Five, near the deadly flash curtain. For generations, her people have chased cirium—the only element that can shield humanity from the curtain’s radioactive particles. She and her caving partner, Dram work the most treacherous tunnel, fighting past flash bats and tunnel gulls, in hopes of mining enough cirium to earn their way into the protected city.
But when newcomers arrive at Outpost Five, Orion uncovers disturbing revelations that make her question everything she thought she knew about life on both sides of the cirium shield. As conditions at the outpost grow increasingly dangerous, it’s up to Orion to forge a way past the flashfall, beyond all boundaries, beyond the world as she knows it.
What are you not-so-patiently waiting on this Wednesday?
