Waiting on Wednesday #20: Perfection

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick for this week's WoW is...


Perfection by J.L. Spelbring

Release date: May 7th 2013
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press

The personification of Aryan purity, Ellyssa's spent her whole life under her creator's strict training and guidance; her purpose is to eradicate inferior beings. She was genetically engineered to be the perfect soldier: strong, intelligent, unemotional, and telepathic.
Only Ellyssa isn't perfect.
Ellyssa feels emotions--a fact she's spent her life concealing. Until she encounters the epitome of inferiority: a dark-haired boy raised among renegades hiding since the Nazis won the war a century ago. He speaks to her telepathically, pushing thoughts into her mind, despite the impossibility of such a substandard person having psychic abilities.
But he does.
His unspoken words and visions of a place she's never visited make Ellyssa question her creator. Confused and afraid her secret will be discovered, Ellyssa runs away, embarking on a journey where she discovers there is more to her than perfection.







Perfection is a debut sci-fi dystopian, and it sounds absolutely amazing! As you should know by now, I love dystopia. And the premise of this one just blows my mind! I mean, the Nazis winning the war? I studied the war in quite some detail in the 10th grade, so I'm really interested in this situation. I'm really looking forward to Perfection, because I just know it's going to be awesome.

  2. Ooh, I've been looking forward to his one too! The cover is simple but really intriguing. I don't understand the butterfly in her eye, but I'm sure it's there for a reason! I love dystopian books too. And thank you so much for dropping by! <3
