The Continent by Keira Drake
Expected Publication Date: January 3, 2017
Publishing Company: Harlequin Teen
Goodreads Synopsis: For her sixteenth birthday, Vaela Sun receives the most coveted gift in all the Spire—a trip to the Continent. It seems an unlikely destination for a holiday: a cold, desolate land where two “uncivilized” nations remain perpetually at war. Most citizens tour the Continent to see the spectacle and violence of battle—a thing long vanished in the Spire. For Vaela—a smart and talented apprentice cartographer—it is an opportunity to improve upon the maps she’s drawn of this vast, frozen land.
But an idyllic aerial exploration is not to be had: the realities of war are made clear in a bloody battle seen from the heli-plane during the tour, leaving Vaela forever changed. And when a tragic accident leaves her stranded on the Continent, she has no illusions about the true nature of the danger she faces. Starving, alone, and lost in the middle of a war zone, Vaela must try to find a way home—but first, she must survive.
Why I’m Anticipating This: The cover and title are what drew me in to learning more about this book. The synopsis is what made me excited for it. A story where a girl gets trapped on a place that’s riddled with war and has to figure out how to survive? YES PLEASE!!! Also, pretty cover!
