I've spent the last week in the world of sexy rock stars with Zoey Derrick's 69 Bottles Series, so now it's time to switch it up a little and dive into Wendy Higgins's NA Post-Apocalyptic Sci-Fi Debut. This "WIR"-Wednesday I'm reading...
Unknown (Unknown Trilogy #1) by Wendy Higgins
Amber Tate believes the worst thing she’ll suffer in life is dealing with the unrequited love she feels for her brother’s best friend, Rylen Fite. She also believes war is something unfortunate that happens places far, far away from her rural Nevada town. She’s wrong on both counts.
When an unknown organization meticulously bombs major cities in the United States and across the globe, a trickle-down effect spreads to remaining towns at an alarming speed—everything from food and water sources to technology and communications are compromised. Without leadership, the nation is split between paralysis and panic, but Amber isn’t one to hide or watch helplessly. She’s determined to put her nursing skills to use, despite the danger, even if it means working alongside the man she can never have.
Why I Chose This Book / What I Think So Far:
Wendy Higgins is one of my favorite authors and I remember having the cover reveal for Unknown (and the upcoming second book, Unrest) here on my blog. While Post-Apocalyptic Sci-Fi novels are not my usual type of book to read I decided to give Unknown a chance because I credit Wendy for being the author to get me to love high fantasy with her novel, The Great Hunt. Since starting last night and having a busy day today I'm only into the Prologue, but it has grabbed my interest right away. I'm eager to see how the story pans out.
