Waiting on Wednesday {32}


Jill @ Breaking the Spine hosts this weekly meme where we can share a book that we are so excited for and are anxiously awaiting their upcoming release!
This week my WoW pick is...
Katya's World by Jonathan L. Howard
Release Date ~ October 23, 2012 from Strange Chemistry


Goodreads Synopsis:
The distant and unloved colony world of Russalka has no land, only the raging sea. No clear skies, only the endless storm clouds. Beneath the waves, the people live in pressurised environments and take what they need from the boundless ocean. It is a hard life, but it is theirs and they fought a war against Earth to protect it. But wars leave wounds that never quite heal, and secrets that never quite lie silent. Katya Kuriakova doesn't care much about ancient history like that, though. She is making her first submarine voyage as crew; the first nice, simple journey of what she expects to be a nice, simple career. There is nothing nice and simple about the deep black waters of Russalka, however; soon she will encounter pirates and war criminals, see death and tragedy at first hand, and realise that her world's future lies on the narrowest of knife edges. For in the crushing depths lies a sleeping monster, an abomination of unknown origin, and when it wakes, it will seek out and kill every single person on the planet.

Another book that sounds super awesome! I love the cover for this - definitely seems to have been inspired by some political symbols, which ties in nicely with the description. I'm hoping for a rich political world/history for the setting in this one and a VERY exciting fantasy world! I can't WAIT to get my hands on this one.

What are you waiting on this weekend? Feel free to leave a link so I can visit your WoW post :)

I have to admit when I first saw this cover I totally thought it was something to do with The Hunger Games!! That cover, combined with the Ka of the title.... LOL!! It definitely sounds really interesting though!!
