Waiting On Wednesday (63)

Idea taken from Breaking The Spine

Grace by Elizabeth Scott.

A fable of a terrifying near future by critically acclaimed author Elizabeth Scott.

Grace was raised to be an Angel, a herald of death by suicide bomb. But she refuses to die for the cause, and now Grace is on the run, daring to dream of freedom. In search of a border she may never reach, she travels among malevolent soldiers on a decrepit train crawling through the desert. Accompanied by the mysterious Kerr, Grace struggles to be invisible, but the fear of discovery looms large as she recalls the history and events that delivered her uncertain fate.

Told in spare, powerful prose, this tale of a dystopian near future will haunt readers long after they've reached the final page.

This book sounds so much different from all the books by Elizabeth Scott that I've read (maybe all the books she's written too). It has such a strong aura. I think the story is going to get heavy at sometimes but still very interesting. The cover looks so mesmerizing as well.
