DOVE ARISING by Karen Bao (WoW #189)

Posted by on February 26, 2014

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about!


Phaet Theta has lived her whole life in a colony on the Moon. She’s barely spoken since her father died in an accident nine years ago. She cultivates the plants in Greenhouse 22, lets her best friend talk for her, and stays off the government’s radar.

Then her mother is arrested.

The only way to save her younger siblings from the degrading Shelter is by enlisting in the Militia, the faceless army that polices the Lunar bases and protects them from attacks by desperate Earth-dwellers. Training is brutal, but it’s where Phaet forms an uneasy but meaningful alliance with the preternaturally accomplished Wes, a fellow outsider.

Rank high, save her siblings, free her mom: that’s the plan. Until Phaet’s logically ordered world begins to crumble…

Haunting and prescient, Dove Arising heralds the emergence of a bold new voice in science fiction.

DOVE ARISING releases on August 19th, 2014 from Penguin.

What a gorgeous cover. The whole ‘living on the moon’ thing reminds me of CINDER. I’m excited! What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
