Waiting on Wednesday (42): The Awakening

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.

You guys! I really liked Tankborn and I'm so excited that book two has a cover now! And it's gorgeous!

Tankborn, Book 2

Author: Karen Sandler
Expected Publication Date: April 2013?
Publisher: Tu Books

Synopsis from Goodreads:
Once a Chadi sector GEN girl terrified of her first Assignment, Kayla is now a member of the Kinship, a secret organization of GENs, lowborns, and trueborns. Kayla travels on Kinship business, collecting information to further the cause of GEN freedom.

Despite Kayla’s relative freedom, she is still a slave to the trueborn ruling class. She rarely sees trueborn Devak, and any relationship between them is still strictly forbidden.

Kayla longs to be truly free, but other priorities have gotten in the way. A paradoxically deadly new virus has swept through GEN sectors—a disease only GENs catch. And GEN warrens and warehouses are being bombed, with only a scrawled clue: F.H.E. Freedom, Humanity, Equality.

With the virus and the bombings decimating the GEN community, freedom and love are put on the back burner as Kayla and her friends find a way to stop the killing . . . before it’s too late.

I'd never heard of Tankborn before, but the summary had me at Genetically Engineered Non-Humans. That's such an interesting concpept. I'm definitely going to look into this further. Thanks for introducing me to it!

The cover isn't up on GRs yet, job for a GR librarian! :D
I think I added Tankborn after reading your review awhile back.

Yeah, Awakening is not a unique name in the slightest.

I'm surprised that I haven't heard of Tankborn, as hard as I look for sci-fi novels. *ponders* Yep, going on the ever-lengthening TBR!

Tankborn's from a small press. I only found it because I used to check NG obsessively!

I did read Tankborn but I can't remember much about it. Hopefully I'll see some reviews to jog my memory before this one comes out.
