Waiting on Wednesday #27

Waiting On Wednesday hosted by Breaking The Spine

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by the fantastic people over at Breaking The Spine that highlights upcoming releases that we are excited about.

For this week my pre-publication selection that I can’t wait for is:

The Glass Arrow by Kristen Simmons

Set For Release On: February 10th, 2015

Summary From GoodreadsThe Glass Arrow

The Handmaid’s Tale meets Blood Red Road in Glass Arrow, the story of Aya, who lives with a small group of women on the run from the men who hunt them, men who want to auction off breeding rights to the highest bidder.

In a world where females are scarce and are hunted, then bought and sold at market for their breeding rights, 15-year old Aya has learned how to hide. With a ragtag bunch of other women and girls, she has successfully avoided capture and eked out a nomadic but free existence in the mountains.

But when Aya’s luck runs out and she’s caught by a group of businessmen on a hunting expedition, fighting to survive takes on a whole new meaning.


I absolutely loved the Article 5 trilogy by Kristen Simmons, and this sounds like it could be just as good, and possible even a bit more powerful. There are so many ways that Simmons could address the issues for women here that it makes me all the more excited to see what direction she will go. Will they be strong and resilient, will they fight with brawn or brains (or both?), and what will the journey for Aya be like?

Also of note is that she got a pretty amazing cover for The Glass Arrow, so congrats on that! I’m sure this book has made the rounds of Waiting on Wednesday already, as I’m usually late to the party on this, but I can’t help but want to share another Kristen Simmons series in the works!

Had you heard of this one before, and if you hadn’t does the summary intrigue you? What book are you “Waiting On”? Let me know in the comments and/or leave a link to your own WoW post! Thanks for checking out my Waiting On Wednesday! ^.^
