Summary (from Goodreads):
After escaping through the bottom of Internment, Morgan and her fellow fugitives aboard the great mechanical bird land on the ground to finally learn what has lived beneath their floating island home all these eons.
The ground is a strange place where water falls from the sky as snow, and customers watch moving pictures and visit speakeasies. A place where families can have as many children as they want, their dead are buried in vast gardens of bodies, and Internment is the feature of an amusement park.
It is also a land at war.
Everyone who fled Internment had their own reasons to escape their corrupt haven. But caught under the watchful eye of another king that wants to dominate his world, they wonder if coming to the ground will drag Internment down with them.
First of all, let us take a moment to admire the cover’s beauty.
Secondly, let us cry over how far away its publication is.
But needless to say, I cannot wait to get my hands on this novel! Perfect Ruin left us on a cliffhanger (*shakes head disapprovingly at DeStefano*) and I desperately want to emerge myself back into this breathtaking world. DeStefano crafted it with such beauty, and I crave to read her artful prose once again.
Hopefully March will come around sooner. Until then, I am forced to wait . . . and act just as SpongeBob is above.
