Author: Kassy Tayler
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Release Date: November 13, 2012

Wren MacAvoy works as a coal miner for a domed city that was constructed in the mid-nineteenth century to protect the royal blood line of England when astronomers spotted a comet on a collision course with Earth. Humanity would be saved by the most groundbreaking technology of the time. But after nearly 200 years of life beneath the dome, society has become complacent and the coal is running out. Plus there are those who wonder, is there life outside the dome or is the world still consumed by fire? When one of Wren's friends escapes the confines of the dome, he is burned alive and put on display as a warning to those seeking to disrupt the dome’s way of life. But Alex’s final words are haunting. “The sky is blue.”

What happens next is a whirlwind of adventure, romance, conspiracy and the struggle to stay alive in a world where nothing is as it seems. Wren unwittingly becomes a catalyst for a revolution that destroys the dome and the only way to survive might be to embrace what the entire society has feared their entire existence.

  1. Uhm, not going to lie, but this sounds fantastic! It is totally going on my TBR right this second. I love dystopia/post-apocalyptic, and this one looks like it's steampunk on top of all that! The synopsis just sounds amazing. Thanks for sharing this one, Kayla!! I'm already excited to read it now!

    Fantabulous pick. =)
