Me on Waiting on Wednesday (161)

Waiting on Wednesday is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. :)

Title: Meridian
Author: Josin L. McQuein
Release Date: April 22, 2014
Publisher: Greenwillow Books (HarperCollins imprint)

From Goodreads:

Marina thought that she had solved all of the Arclight’s mysteries. She had found her own history—that she was one of the Fade, that she never should have been human. She knows that the Fade who surround the Arclight don’t want to be the humans' enemies at all. She knows that the leader of those inside the Arc, Honoria Whit, never told the whole truth. But there is so much more that Marina is just discovering. There are more survivors out there. Only Marina—and her friends, all of whom have connections to the Fade they'd never known about—can lead her people to them. But there are also darker dangers, things that even the Fade fear. And Marina slowly realizes she may never have been “cured,” after all. The sequel to Arclight, Meridian is an intense, action-packed page-turner about the lines we draw between right and wrong, light and dark . . . and the way nothing is ever that black and white.

I'm rather torn when it comes to this book. I read Arclight last year and found it interesting, fast-paced, and a door into a curious and dangerous future. It read very much like a standalone. But I still want to read this because I'm curious as to what else is out there. And I like the cover, how it contrasts with the darkness of Arclight's. :)

  3. Eek, I was 50/50 about downloading it on EW, since I haven't read Arclight, so I guess it'll come down to if I have the time, haha. But, I see you're reading Landry Park, jealous! Can't wait to read it. :)
