I am a day late but, hey, better late than never, right? (That’s what I told my professors then. It rarely works but it’s worth the shot, eh?)
Anyway, I have been stalking Lindsay Cummings’ blog for some time now. She has a book coming out next year and it sounds pretty darn awesome. I’ve always been into dark, haunting, blood-soaked dystopias and her debut novel, The Murder Complex, hits all the right spots.
Here’s a little tidbit from Goodreads:
Meadow Woodson, a fifteen-year-old girl who has been trained by her father to fight, to kill, and to survive in any situation, lives with her family on a houseboat in Florida. The state is controlled by The Murder Complex, an organization that tracks the population with precision. The plot starts to thicken when Meadow meets Zephyr James, who is-although he doesn’t know it-one of the MC’s programmed assassins. Is their meeting a coincidence? Destiny? Or part of a terrifying strategy? And will Zephyr keep Meadow from discovering the haunting truth about her family?
And yesterday, Lindsay Cummings has put a face to this baby.
Isn’t it gorgeous? To add more to your excitement, the lovely author is giving away some cool stuff – signed ARCs, The Murder Complex bookmarks and #booknerdigans shirts. Want to join? (I know you want to.) Just click on the image below.
The Murder Complex will be released on June 10, 2014 but if you can’t wait for that check out the prequel The Fear Trials to be released May 27 under Greenwillow Books/HarperCollins.
You can pre-order both books already.
