When Cora Mason wakes in a desert, she doesn't know where she is or who put her there. As she explores, she finds an impossible mix of environments--tundra next to desert, farm next to jungle--and a strangely empty town cobbled together from different cultures and time periods, all watched over by eerie black windows. And she isn't alone. 
Four other teenagers have also been taken: a beautiful model, a tattooed smuggler, a secretive genius, and an army brat who seems to know too much about Cora's past. None of them have a clue as to what happened, and all of them have secrets. As the unlikely group struggles for leadership, they slowly start to trust each other. But when their mysterious jailer appears--a handsome young guard named Cassian--they realize that their captivity is more terrifying than they could ever imagine: their captors aren't from Earth. And they have taken they five teenagers to an otherworldly zoo--where the exhibits are humans. 
When a forbidden attraction develops between Cora and Cassian, she realizes that her best chance of escape might be in the arms of her own jailer--though that would mean leaving the others behind. Can Cora manage to save herself and her companions? And if so…what world lies beyond the walls of their cage?

I recently finished The Madman's Daughter trilogy and I am so bummed that I was going to have nothing else by Megan Shepherd to read. Then I saw the cover reveal for this beauty. I can not describe my excitment. Megan is one of my favorite authors, her writing is beautiful and her ideas extremely interesting. 

What are you looking forward to this week?


  1. I want to start the Madman's Daughter trilogy so badly! It's in my 2015 TBR! :) It intrigues me! And this book... oh, this book!! The synopsis!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!! NNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEDDDDDDDDD!!!!!!! I love how this book seems to make no sense but make perfect sense at the same time! <3

    Great Post! Hope "The Wait of Doom" isn't too bad! :)

  2. I'm still a bit torn about the Madman's Daughter because I really enjoyed the first book except for the love triangle... and I'm not sure if I want to continue it...
    BUT this one sounds pretty much fantastic and doesn't seem to have a love triangle? Hopefully? I have it in the wish list for sure!
