Title: Arclight
Author: Josin L. McQuein
Series: n/a
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Publication Date: April 23, 2013

No one crosses the wall of light . . . except for one girl who doesn’t remember who she is, where she came from, or how she survived. A harrowing, powerful debut thriller about finding yourself and protecting your future—no matter how short and uncertain it may be.

The Arclight is the last defense. The Fade can’t get in. Outside the Arclight’s border of high-powered beams is the Dark. And between the Light and the Dark is the Grey, a narrow, barren no-man’s-land. That’s where the rescue team finds Marina, a lone teenage girl with no memory of the horrors she faced or the family she lost. Marina is the only person who has ever survived an encounter with the Fade. She’s the first hope humanity has had in generations, but she could also be the catalyst for their final destruction. Because the Fade will stop at nothing to get her back. Marina knows it. Tobin, who’s determined to take his revenge on the Fade, knows it. Anne-Marie, who just wishes it were all over, knows it.

When one of the Fade infiltrates the Arclight and Marina recognizes it, she will begin to unlock secrets she didn’t even know she had. Who will Marina become? Who can she never be again?


Why I'm waiting:  So, I honestly haven't seen much fanfare for Arclight, but personally, I love a good thriller centering around someone who's lost their memories.  And that tagline:  No one is safe when the lights go out.  Creepy, right?  I need to know what the Arclight is, what the Fade is, and what Marina has to do with any of it.

What are you waiting on this week?  Feel free to share it in the comments or leave a link so I can stop by!

  4. The cover is really unique! I'm also curious about what the Fade is now and about the setting in general. Sci-fi? Dystopian? Fantasy? This is one case where I'd like some more summary in a review to clear things up a bit, but I think we'll have to wait a little longer for those ;)

  19. Hmmm. This is the first I'm hearing of this book, but it really does look good! Memory-loss books are usually hit or miss for me, but this one just might work out.
