Description: “Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s selection: After the end by Amy Plum

13601681Release date: May 16th 2014

Synopsis (from Goodreads):

She’s searching for answers to her past. They’re hunting her to save their future.

World War III has left the world ravaged by nuclear radiation. A lucky few escaped to the Alaskan wilderness. They’ve survived for the last thirty years by living off the land, being one with nature, and hiding from whoever else might still be out there.

At least, this is what Juneau has been told her entire life.

When Juneau returns from a hunting trip to discover that everyone in her clan has vanished, she sets off to find them. Leaving the boundaries of their land for the very first time, she learns something horrifying: There never was a war. Cities were never destroyed. The world is intact. Everything was a lie.

Now Juneau is adrift in a modern-day world she never knew existed. But while she’s trying to find a way to rescue her friends and family, someone else is looking for her. Someone who knows the extraordinary truth about the secrets of her past.

Why did I choose this?

I’m always looking for a good dystopian read and this one sounds great. I really liked Amy Plum’s  Revenants series which fell more into the fantasy category, very curious what she does with this genre.

  1. I’m always on the lookout for a great sounding dystopian too! I haven’t read her Revenants series, although it is on my shelf waiting to be read, but this one is definitely going to be a book I buy when it releases! It just sounds so awesome!! Great pick! I hope you’re having an amazing week so far! 🙂
