Waiting on Wednesday (6)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

Publication Date: January 21, 2014

Of the various star systems that make up the Confederation, most lie thousands of light-years from First Earth-and out here, no one is free. The agencies that govern the Confederation are as corrupt as the crime bosses who patrol it, and power is held by anyone with enough greed and ruthlessness to claim it. That power is derived from one thing: metatech, the devices that allow people to travel great distances faster than the speed of light.

Jeth Seagrave and his crew of teenage mercenaries have survived in this world by stealing unsecured metatech, and they're damn good at it. Jeth doesn't care about the politics or the law; all he cares about is earning enough money to buy back his parents' ship, Avalon, from his crime-boss employer and getting himself and his sister, Lizzie, the heck out of Dodge. But when Jeth finds himself in possession of information that both the crime bosses and the government are willing to kill for, he is going to have to ask himself how far he'll go to get the freedom he's wanted for so long.

Can we all just take a moment and look at this cover? It totally screams epic. This could totally pass up as a movie cover. Heck if this was a movie, I would definitely check it out. I love sci-fi movies, but books? Not all the time. Sometimes they're a hit and miss for me. But this intriguing summary and that the fact that this is a stand alone (not entirely sure), I would totally read this in a heartbeat. 


  1. I haven't seen this one before but it definitely sounds interesting. I would have to add in on my to-read list but I'd love to read some reviews of it. Great pick and thanks for sharing. I hope you enjoy reading it as well.

  2. This is the second time I have seen this one and I just can't stop staring at that cover! I agree, it would be an awesome movie poster!
