I've fallen in love with this cover of The Elites by Natasha Ngan! Isn't it wonderful? I've followed Natasha on Twitter for awhile now and I'm very much looking forward to this, her debut book. Plus, I think Hot Key Books have an amazing selection of books that they publish! The Elites is published in September, mark your calendars or add this one to your wishlists etc!
The Elites by Natasha Ngan (5th September, Hot Key Books)
'There is a rumour that the Elites don't bleed.'
Hundreds of years into the future, wars, riots, resource crises and rising sea-levels have destroyed the old civilisations. Only one city has survived: Neo-Babel, a city full of cultures - and racial tension. Fifteen-year-old Silver is an Elite, a citizen of Neo-Babel chosen to guard the city due to her superior DNA. She'd never dream of leaving - but then she fails to prevent the assassination of Neo Babel's president, setting off a chain of events more shocking and devastating than she could ever have imagined. Forced to flee the city with her best friend Butterfly (a boy with genetically-enhanced wings), Silver will have to fight to find her family, uncover the truth about Neo-Babel and come to terms with her complicated feelings for Butterfly.
Packed full of adventure, romance, exoticism and the power of friendship, THE ELITES is a highly compelling and beautifully written novel from a supremely talented debut author.
