YOUNG ADULT SCI-FI, GET AT ME. Wait, too much? *grin* I made it one of my goals for 2013 to read more YA sci-fi, and since science fiction is apparently 'the next big thing' I can see this trend stretching into the next few years. That's great news because there's already some fantastic-looking YA sci-fi on the horizon in 2014, including this title by Mindee Arnett. The gorgeous cover and fantastic summary remind me a bit of A Confusion of Princes by Garth Nix and Dom Testa's Galahad series. I'm all in. Avalon will be released on January 21st, 2014 by Balzer + Bray (Harper Collins).
Jeth Seagrave and his crew of teenage mercenaries have survived in this world by stealing unsecured metatech, and they're damn good at it. Jeth doesn't care about the politics or the law; all he cares about is earning enough money to buy back his parents' ship, Avalon, from his crime-boss employer and getting himself and his sister, Lizzie, the heck out of Dodge. But when Jeth finds himself in possession of information that both the crime bosses and the government are willing to kill for, he is going to have to ask himself how far he'll go to get the freedom he's wanted for so long.
