Summary from Amazon.co.uk:
We know you are here, our brothers and sisters. We will, one day, emerge from the Dome to join you in peace. For now, we watch from afar, benevolently.
Pressia Belze has lived outside of the Dome ever since the detonations. Struggling for survival she dreams of life inside the safety of the Dome with the 'Pure'. Partridge, himself a Pure, knows that life inside the Dome, under the strict control of the leaders' regime, isn't as perfect as others think. Bound by a history that neither can clearly remember, Pressia and Partridge are destined to forge a new world.
I'm really looking forward to reading Pure because my friend at Headline publishing is SO excited/enthusiastic about it. I always trust her judgement (she bought The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, which is ACE!), which is why I'm now excited for Pure too. You can never have too many dystopians (in my opinion) and I'm interested to see how this one brings something new to the table. Domes, regimes, detonations... I think Pure is going to be one to watch!
Note: The cover above is the US cover as the UK one hasn't been revealed yet. Can't wait to see it!
