As a lethal plague sweeps through the land, Ani Mells is shocked when she is unexpectedly captured by the governor's wardens and forced to submit to a test for the deadly Scourge. She is even more surprised when the test results come back positive, and she is sent to Attic Island, a former prison turned refuge -- and quarantine colony -- for the ill. The Scourge's victims, Ani now among them, can only expect to live out short, painful lives there. However, Ani quickly discovers that she doesn't know the whole truth about the Scourge or the Colony. She's been caught in a devious plot, and, with the help of her best friend, Weevil, Ani means to uncover just what is actually going on.
I'm still hesitant when I pick up Dystopian books. It's a genre I'm just busting into the genre after firmly swearing it wasn't for me. Thanks to Red Rising and Illuminae I have been slowly wading my way through the genre. This sounds interesting I might add it to my Hold list at the library.
What's everyone else looking forward to this Wednesday?
