Waiting on Wednesday (#9): The Elites by Natasha Ngan


Waiting on Wednesday is hosted over at Breaking the Spine and gives bloggers the chance to feature upcoming releases we're excited about.



The Elites by Natasha Ngan
Published: 5th September 2013 (Hot Key Books)
Plot Summary: "There is a rumour that the Elites don’t bleed."

Hundreds of years into the future, wars, riots, resource crises and rising sea-levels have destroyed the old civilisations. Only one city has survived: Neo-Babel, a city full of cultures – and racial tension.

Fifteen-year-old Silver is an Elite, a citizen of Neo-Babel chosen to guard the city due to her superior DNA. She’d never dream of leaving – but then she fails to prevent the assassination of Neo Babel’s president, setting off a chain of events more shocking and devastating than she could ever have imagined. Forced to flee the city with her best friend Butterfly (a boy with genetically-enhanced wings), Silver will have to fight to find her family, uncover the truth about Neo-Babel and come to terms with her complicated feelings for Butterfly.

Packed full of adventure, romance, exoticism and the power of friendship, The Elites is a highly compelling and beautifully written novel from a supremely talented debut author.
So I am sold on a futuristic story with unrest, superior DNA and friendship! It's like a combination of all my favourite things. What are you waiting on this week? Let me know in the comments, and link me up to your own WoW post and I'll be sure to check it out!
