27 Hours (The Nightside Saga, #1) by Tristina Wright
on October 3rd 2017
Rumor Mora fears two things: hellhounds too strong for him to kill, and failure. Jude Welton has two dreams: for humans to stop killing monsters, and for his strange abilities to vanish.
But in no reality should a boy raised to love monsters fall for a boy raised to kill them.
Nyx Llorca keeps two secrets: the moon speaks to her, and she’s in love with Dahlia, her best friend. Braeden Tennant wants two things: to get out from his mother's shadow, and to unlearn Epsilon's darkest secret.
They’ll both have to commit treason to find the truth.
During one twenty-seven-hour night, if they can’t stop the war between the colonies and the monsters from becoming a war of extinction, the things they wish for will never come true, and the things they fear will be all that’s left.
27 Hours is a sweeping, thrilling story featuring a stellar cast of queer teenagers battling to save their homes and possibly every human on Sahara as the clock ticks down to zero.
why i’m waiting
Sci-fi isn’t usually my genre of choice, but I will definitely make an exception for this book! On Twitter, I’ve seen the author describe 27 Hours as “queer teens in space.” SIGN ME THE HECK UP.
What book are you waiting on this week? Are you as excited for this one as I am?
