Wishlist Wednesday #18

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Dani over @Pen to Paper and is a great way of showing off the books that we are dying to get our hands on :)

 Katya's World - Jonathan L. Howard

 The distant and unloved colony world of Russalka has no land, only the raging sea. No clear skies, only the endless storm clouds. Beneath the waves, the people live in pressurised environments and take what they need from the boundless ocean. It is a hard life, but it is theirs and they fought a war against Earth to protect it. But wars leave wounds that never quite heal, and secrets that never quite lie silent.

Katya Kuriakova doesn’t care much about ancient history like that, though. She is making her first submarine voyage as crew; the first nice, simple journey of what she expects to be a nice, simple career.

There is nothing nice and simple about the deep black waters of Russalka, however; soon she will encounter pirates and war criminals, see death and tragedy at first hand, and realise that her world’s future lies on the narrowest of knife edges. For in the crushing depths lies a sleeping monster, an abomination of unknown origin, and when it wakes, it will seek out and kill every single person on the planet.
This looks like such a good book! I read a few preview chapters online and really enjoyed what I read. I love the concept of a world entirely made of water with no land. A little strange to imagine but very cool. It just seems like it has a great plot and I like Katya in the first few chapters that I managed to read. Also the sleeping monster really intrigues me! What is it I wonder?! 
 The publisher of Katya's World, Strange Chemistry have some amazing books out right now and this is definitely another one of their books that I NEED to add to my bookshelves.

  2. I love the sound of this one as well! Strange Chemistry have published some great books lately, and I love the odd sci-fi story. I'm trying not to get any more books at the moment though, until I've read through some of the ones I already have!

  3. I always find new books when I stop by your blog :) I'm not really into sci-fi, but I've read a couple lately :)
