Breaking the Spine features a weekly event where we talk about the books we can't wait to read.
This week I'm waiting on:
In the Afterlight (Darkest Minds #3)
By: Alexandra Bracken
Release Date: October 28, 2014
Ruby can't look back. Fractured by an unbearable loss, she and the kids who survived the government's attack on Los Angeles travel north to regroup. With them is a prisoner: Clancy Gray, son of the president, and one of the few people Ruby has encountered with abilities like hers. Only Ruby has any power over him, and just one slip could lead to Clancy wreaking havoc on their minds.My sister has a rule that she doesn't start addictive series until all of the books are out. I can completely understand because I am obsessed with The Darkest Minds series and I have been waiting for In the Afterlight to come out. I love Alexandra Bracken as an author and just as a human being (she's so cool and fun to listen to at book signings). Also I was so excited to learn the title of the book because all three make up a sentence: The Darkest Minds Never Fade In the Afterlight,
They are armed only with a volatile secret: proof of a government conspiracy to cover up the real cause of IANN, the disease that has killed most of America's children and left Ruby and others like her with powers the government will kill to keep contained. But internal strife may destroy their only chance to free the "rehabilitation camps" housing thousands of other Psi kids.
Meanwhile, reunited with Liam, the boy she would-and did-sacrifice everything for to keep alive, Ruby must face the painful repercussions of having tampered with his memories of her. She turns to Cole, his older brother, to provide the intense training she knows she will need to take down Gray and the government. But Cole has demons of his own, and one fatal mistake may be the spark that sets the world on fire.
