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.


  1. Thank you for the spotlight. I'm very honored.

  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

  3. I love the butterfly eyeball on the cover. :)
