'Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Isn’t that what they say? But how close is too close when they may be one in the same?

The Seven Stages War left much of the planet a charred wasteland. The future belongs to the next generation’s chosen few who must rebuild it. But to enter this elite group, candidates must first pass The Testing—their one chance at a college education and a rewarding career.

Cia Vale is honored to be chosen as a Testing candidate; eager to prove her worthiness as a University student and future leader of the United Commonwealth. But on the eve of her departure, her father’s advice hints at a darker side to her upcoming studies--trust no one.

But surely she can trust Tomas, her handsome childhood friend who offers an alliance? Tomas, who seems to care more about her with the passing of every grueling (and deadly) day of the Testing. To survive, Cia must choose: love without truth or life without trust.'

This is a) a kind of cheating WoW because although I really, really couldn't wait to read it I do now have an ARC of The Testing kindly sent to me by the UK publisher and b) more of a UK WoW because The Testing came out in the US yesterday! The picture above is the UK cover, the one below is the US cover, not sure which one I prefer as they're both good covers...

What are you waiting for this week?


  1. This one does sound awesome! Thanks for sharing...and here's MY WOW POST

  2. I've had an ARC of this for a while, but haven't brought myself to read it yet. Not sure why that is. I hope you enjoy it!
