Waiting On Wednesday: For Darkness Shows The Stars by Diana Peterfreund





       Generations ago, a genetic experiment gone wrong—the Reduction—decimated humanity, giving rise to a Luddite nobility who outlawed most technology.
       Elliot North has always known her place in this world. Four years ago Elliot refused to run away with her childhood sweetheart, the servant Kai, choosing duty to her family’s estate over love. Since then the world has changed: a new class of Post-Reductionists is jumpstarting the wheel of progress, and Elliot’s estate is foundering, forcing her to rent land to the mysterious Cloud Fleet, a group of shipbuilders that includes renowned explorer Captain Malakai Wentforth—an almost unrecognizable Kai. And while Elliot wonders if this could be their second chance, Kai seems determined to show Elliot exactly what she gave up when she let him go.
      But Elliot soon discovers her old friend carries a secret—one that could change their society . . . or bring it to its knees. And again, she’s faced with a choice: cling to what she’s been raised to believe, or cast her lot with the only boy she’s ever loved, even if she’s lost him forever.
Inspired by Jane Austen’s Persuasion, For Darkness Shows the Stars is a breathtaking romance about opening your mind to the future and your heart to the one person you know can break it.


This book has such a unique idea! The cover is gorgeous and I loved Jane Austen's Persuasion, so I'm really excited to read this :) Also, both the romance and the story seem amazing. What are you waiting on?

  1. I've been wanting this book since I've seen it first started floating around other blogs. I do admit that the gorgeous cover is what attracted me to the book in the first place, but when I read the summary I was nearly in love! LOL. I'm glad that this one is coming out very very soon! Hopefully I can get a copy and I hope that it's going to be amazing <3 Great pick!

  8. I'm waiting for this book too because the cover is just gorgeous. And the summary sounds great too. Though I have to admit that I have never read a Jane Austen book before, but I'm planning to read Persuasion before starting this book. It is a retelling after all so it would make sense if I read the original first, right?
