[Waiting On Wednesday] #11

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming books that we eagerly anticipate and cannot wait to get here!

"VITRO" - Jessica Khoury

Vitro
Expected Publication: January 2014
A death-defying tropical adventure delivers a frightening message about dabbling with creation from the talented author of Origin.

On a remote island in the Pacific, Corpus scientists have taken test tube embryos and given them life. These beings—the Vitros—have knowledge and abilities most humans can only dream of. But they also have one enormous flaw.

Sophie Crue is determined to get to Skin Island and find her mother, a scientist who left Sophie behind years ago. She enlists hunky charter pilot Jim Julien to take her there. But once on the island, Sophie and Jim encounter more than they bargained for, including a charming, brilliant Vitro named Nicholas and an innocent, newly awoken one named Lux.

In a race for their lives, Sophie and Jim are about to discover what happens when science stretches too far beyond its reach.

WHY AM I WAITING ON IT?

I have always been a fan of Dystopia book and love to find more stories in which I can see the future of this world. Vitro got me really interested when I started reading Freak of Nature because it's kind of the same story - super humans who will never get defeated. Sounds like lots of action and a lot of super technology to me!! & the cover is awesome - simple but full of mysteries. 

WHAT ARE YOU WAiTING ON THIS WEEK?

  15. I agree with you about Vitro. Nice cover and intriguing plot. I like dystopia too, although sometimes there are too many holes in world building for me to enjoy them. I hope Vitro will not disappoint. Nice pick. :)

  20. Stories about forced pregnancy, genetic engineering and stuff like that always make me a little queasy! But I hope you enjoy this when you get it! I really like the cover.
