This week I am waiting on
Unearthed by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner
Publication Date: January 9th 2018
When Earth intercepts a message from a long-extinct alien race, it seems like the solution the planet has been waiting for. The Undying’s advanced technology has the potential to undo environmental damage and turn lives around, and Gaia, their former home planet, is a treasure trove waiting to be uncovered.
For Jules Addison and his fellow scholars, the discovery of an alien culture offers unprecedented opportunity for study… as long as scavengers like Amelia Radcliffe don’t loot everything first. Mia and Jules’ different reasons for smuggling themselves onto Gaia put them immediately at odds, but after escaping a dangerous confrontation with other scavvers, they form a fragile alliance.
In order to penetrate the Undying temple and reach the tech and information hidden within, the two must decode the ancient race’s secrets and survive their traps. But the more they learn about the Undying, the more their presence in the temple seems to be part of a grand design that could spell the end of the human race…
I loved Kaufman and Spooners last series, Starbound, so imagine my excitement when I find out that they’re writing another series together. This book sounds like one hell of a ride. I can’t wait to see what the dynamic between scholar, Jules, and scavenger, Mia, is like. I can see these characters learning a lot from one another and realise that maybe they’re not so different as they uncover secrets about the Undying and Gaia.
What’s your most anticipated book?
