undertheneverskyUnder the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi is appealing for so many different reasons. Not only does it fit into the dystopian genre that has been so popular these past few years (The Hunger Games trilogy, Divergent, etc.), but it also has its own unique elements. If you are someone who enjoys a story mixed with adventure, survival, technology, romance, and nature, this is a must read.

Aria lives in Reverie, a pod-city that protects its citizens from the raging storms outside by allowing them to live in the Realms, a technology-enhanced world within their mind. Perry lives on the Outside, a member of the Tides whose survival is based on his ability to protect himself and his family from the cannibals and savages that live in the open territories. When the unthinkable happens and their worlds collide, who will be able to survive? Will they be able to overcome their differences? Will the secrets both of their families have been keeping from them destroy the homes they hoped to go back to?

Check out this trailer for The Forsaken by Lisa Stasse.  The Forsaken is a the first book in a new YA dystopian trilogy.

The Forsaken
Lisa Stasse

As an obedient orphan of the U.N.A. (the super-country that was once Mexico, the U.S., and Canada), Alenna learned at an early age to blend in and be quiet—having your parents taken by the police will do that to a girl. But Alenna can’t help but stand out when she fails a test that all sixteen-year-olds have to take: The test says she has a high capacity for brutal violence, and so she is sent to The Wheel, an island where all would-be criminals end up.

The life expectancy of prisoners on The Wheel is just two years, but with dirty, violent, and chaotic conditions, the time seems a lot longer as Alenna is forced to deal with civil wars for land ownership and machines that snatch kids out of their makeshift homes. Desperate, she and the other prisoners concoct a potentially fatal plan to flee the island. Survival may seem impossible, but Alenna is determined to achieve it anyway.  (catalog link)

Do you like intense survival stories?  Check out this trailer for the new book No Safety in Numbers by Dayna Lorentz.

A biological bomb has just been discovered in the air ducts of a busy suburban mall. At first nobody knows if it’s even life threatening, but then the entire complex is quarantined, people start getting sick, supplies start running low, and there’s no way out. Among the hundreds of trapped shoppers are four teens.

Shay, Marco, Lexi, and Ryan, each with their own stories, must cope in unique, surprising styles, changing in ways they wouldn’t have predicted, trying to find solace, safety, and escape at a time when the adults are behaving badly.

This is a gripping look at people and how they can–and must–change under the most dire of circumstances.

And not always for the better.
