Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event that
spotlights upcoming releases that I’m really
looking forward to. Waiting On Wednesday
is the creation of Jill at Breaking the Spine.
This week’s “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:
Humans, Bow Down
James Patterson and Emily Raymond
Little Brown & Co., February 2016
From the publisher—
In a world run by machines, humans are an endangered species.
The Great War is over. The Robots have won. The humans who survived have two choices—they can submit and serve the vicious rulers they created or be banished to the Reserve, a desolate, unforgiving landscape where it’s a crime to be human. And the robots aren’t content—following the orders of their soulless leader, they’re planning to conquer humanity’s last refuge. With nothing left to lose, Six, a feisty, determined young woman whose family was killed with the first shots of the war, is a rebel with a cause. On the run for her life after an attempted massacre, Six is determined to save humanity before the robots finish what the Great War started and wipe humans off the face of the earth, once and for all.
Why am I waiting so eagerly? Curiosity for the most part. I’m a fan of James Patterson for a number of reasons including his huge financial support of independent bookstores and I really enjoy the books he writes himself. Some of the others, the ones for which he creates the idea and outline but somebody else writes, not always but some really do work. I’ve never read anything of his in the science fiction genre other than Maximum Ride and that’s been a while so I want to try this one.
