On Internment, the floating island in the clouds where 16-year-old Morgan Stockhour lives, getting too close to the edge can lead to madness. Even though Morgan's older brother, Lex, was a Jumper, Morgan vows never to end up like him. She tries her best not to mind that her life is orderly and boring, and if she ever wonders about the ground, and why it is forbidden, she takes solace in best friend Pen and her betrothed, Basil.
Then a murder, the first in a generation, rocks the city. With whispers swirling and fear on the wind, Morgan can no longer stop herself from investigating, especially when she meets Judas. He is the boy being blamed for the murder — betrothed to the victim — but Morgan is convinced of his innocence. Secrets lay at the heart of Internment, but nothing can prepare Morgan for what she will find — or who she will lose.-- Goodreads
This book sounds awesome!  Perfect Ruin has a touch of fantasy, mystery, and dystopia all rolled up into one.  I love these new intergenre books.  Plus, the book sounds like it could be pretty cool with this forbidden relationship with a possible killer.  Yeah, this is my kind of book, how about yours?  Can't wait until October for this release!

  1. I really enjoyed FEVER, never did get to finish the rest of the series, the books were too expensive, even in kindle format. This one sounds really great too. Did you ever read any of her other books?

  2. What a pretty cover! I haven't heard of this one. Sounds good, though.
