WoW #170 – Rebelwing

Posted October 23, 2019 by Lillian in Features / 4 Comments

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event originally created and hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating. Jill has been MIA since August of 2016. Despite this, the meme lives on….Hope you come back Jill! Until then I will be joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can’t-Wait Wednesday.

Happy Wednesday y’all! I’m eagerly waiting on Andrea Tang‘s Rebelwing. I first came across this book on a Goodreads list for 2020 new releases. The title caught my attention and the blurb hooked me. Sentient cybernetic dragon? Yes please! Billed as a dystopian, the dragon element is new for me. I love dragon stories, but dragons in a dystopian future? This is new and I like 😀

WoW #170 – RebelwingRebelwing by Andrea Tang
Series: Rebelwing #1
Published by Razorbill on 2020-02-25
Length: 368 pages

Business is booming for Prudence Wu.

A black-market-media smuggler and scholarship student at the prestigious New Columbia Preparatory Academy, Pru is lucky to live in the Barricade Coalition where she is free to study, read, watch, and listen to whatever she wants. But between essays and exams, she chooses to spend her breaks sweet-talking border patrol with her best friend, Anabel, in order to sell banned media to the less fortunate citizens of the United Continental Confederacy, Inc.

When a drop-off goes awry, Pru narrowly escapes UCC enforcers to find that her rescuer is, of all things, a sentient cybernetic dragon. On the one hand, Pru is lucky not to be in prison, or worse. On the other, the dragon seems to have imprinted on her permanently, which means she has no choice but to be its pilot.

Drawn into a revolution she has no real interest in leading, Pru, Anabel, and friends Alex and Cat become key players in a brewing conflict with the UCC as the corporate government develops advanced weaponry more terrifying and grotesque than Pru could have ever imagined.
