WoW - Dove Arising


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. 

Dove Arising

February 24, 2015


Phaet Theta has lived her whole life in a colony on the Moon. She’s barely spoken since her father died in an accident nine years ago. She cultivates the plants in Greenhouse 22, lets her best friend talk for her, and stays off the government’s radar.

Then her mother is arrested.

The only way to save her younger siblings from the degrading Shelter is by enlisting in the Militia, the faceless army that polices the Lunar bases and protects them from attacks by desperate Earth-dwellers. Training is brutal, but it’s where Phaet forms an uneasy but meaningful alliance with the preternaturally accomplished Wes, a fellow outsider.

Rank high, save her siblings, free her mom:  that’s the plan. Until Phaet’s logically ordered world begins to crumble...

Suspenseful, intelligent, and hauntingly prescient, Dove Arising stands on the shoulders of our greatest tales of the future to tell a story that is all too relevant today.
I FREAKING LOVE THIS COVER!  I'm also a big fan of sci-fi and the synopsis to this one looks fantastic. But honestly, I cannot get over the cover... love it.

What are You Waiting For?

    1. Aw that's too bad. This is also quickly climbing high on my list. I was going to save it for a later WoW since it's a 2015 release but I couldn't stop myself :)

    1. I know. I'm really in the mood for some sci-fi right now. I think it might be the net trend.

  5. Oooo, that is quite an interesting topic - I do enjoy a good scifi! I hate the cover change, this cover that you featured is much preferable to the new one. I hope you enjoy this book when you read it! :)

    Have a fabulous week!

    Check out my WoW post!
