Waiting On Wednesday: The Killables

Waiting on Wednesday idea from Jill at Breaking the Spine.

The Killables by Gemma Malley

* Published by: Hodder & Stoughton (UK)
* Format: Trade paperback (UK)
* Release Date: March 29th, 2012 (UK)
* On Amazon: here


Summary from Amazon.co.uk:

Evil has been eradicated. The City has been established. And citizens may only enter after having the 'evil' part of their brain removed. They are labelled on the System according to how 'good' they are. If they show signs of the evil emerging, they are labelled a K... But no one knows quite what that means. Only that they disappear, never to be seen again...


I am a huge, HUGE fan of Gemma Malley's books. The Declaration trilogy is one of my all-time favourites, and I think she's probably my favourite dystopian writer. Hodder have bought her new series, and although the first book, The Killables, isn't published until March 2012 (*weep*), I wanted to highlight it anyway. I think it sounds brilliant and I can't wait to read a new book from Gemma - her last, The Legacy, blew my mind! I'm also looking forward to seeing Hodder's cover for this one. I'm sure it'll be fantastic!

After listening to Gemma talk about this and the scientific research behind it, I can't wait for it either. Mind you, I still have read The Resistance...
