Waiting on Wednesday (11): Shadows Cast By Stars


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Shadows Cast By Stars

Title: Shadows Cast By Stars
Author: Catherine Knutsson
Publisher: Atheneum
Expected publication: June 5th 2012
Two hundred years from now, blood has become the most valuable commodity on the planet - especially the blood of aboriginal peoples, for it contains antibodies that protect them from the plague that is ravaging the rest of the world.

Sixteen-year-old Cassandra Mercredi might be immune to the plague, but that doesn't mean she's safe. Government forces are searching for those of aboriginal heritage to harvest their blood. When a search threatens Cass and her family, they flee to the Island, a mysterious and idyllic territory protected by the Band, a group of guerilla warriors, and by an enigmatic energy barrier that keeps outsiders out and the spirit world in. And though the village healer has taken Cass under her wing, and the tribal leader's son into his heart, the spirit world is angry, and it has chosen Cass to be its voice and instrument...

First of all, how about that gorge cover?! The fading in and out of the coloring around the title is amazing and I totally did not see the crow, I think that's a crow, right smack on the...basically on the whole cover. See, clearly I was all distracted by the colors of the title! :) The synopsis really reminds me of something along the lines of Avatar, lol! And that's not a bad thing - I love that movie to pieces!

So what do you think?! Lovin' the cover? The synopsis? Or bleh...? Leave your thoughts in the comments because...comments always make my day! And if you have a WOW post, don't forget your link so I can stop by your place to check it out and hopefully add more, new books to my Goodreads "to-be-read" pile!

And....WOOT WOOT, it's Wednesday - hump day! We're halfway through the week! YEAH BABY.
