Summary from Elizabeth Scott's site:
A fable of a terrifying near future. Grace was raised to be an Angel, a herald of death by suicide bomb. But she refuses to die for the cause, and now Grace is on the run, daring to dream of freedom. In search of a border she may never reach, she travels among malevolent soldiers on a decrepit train crawling through the desert. Accompanied by the mysterious Kerr, Grace struggles to be invisible, but the fear of discovery looms large as she recalls the history and events that delivered her uncertain fate.

I can't even explain how excited I am about this book. Does it not sound amazing?! I love the premise, the cover, Elizabeth Scott... all of it. I'm so glad it's a 2010 release, because I don't think I could have waited much longer!

Wow, I hadn't heard of this book. I love Elizabeth Scott's writing so I'm intrigued. Thanks!

Oh that does sound very good and that cover is gorgeous! On to the list!

The cover creeps me out a little, lol. And I could never tell if this was a dystopian, or an eerily realistic book set in somewhere like the Middle East. I definitely want to check it out when it comes out!

Very interesting premise. I don't think I have heard a story like this before. But the cover, most certainly catches your eyes.

Reading the summary gave me goosebumps. If that isn't a current book, I don't know what is.

Sounds awesome! I've seen this book on some Wow posts, but I haven't noticed that it's written by Elizabeth Scott until you pointed it out! That makes me want to read this book so much more! :)

This one really does sound like my type of read. I like 'near future' stories, especially when they're so possible. Great pick.

I Want To Read That said...

I love the sound of this one too. Now - is it just me or does the model on the cover look like Sarah Michelle Gellar (especially around the eyes)??
