Title: For Darkness Shows The Stars
Author: Diana Peterfreund
Release Day: June 12th, 2012
Summary: (goodreads) Generations ago, a genetic experiment gone wrong-the Reduction-decimated humanity, giving rise to a Luddite nobility who outlawed most technology.
Eighteen-year-old Luddite Elliot North has always known her place in this caste system. Four year ago, Elliot refused to run away with her childhood sweetheart, the servant Kai, choosing duty to her family's estate over love. But now the world has changed: a new class of Post-Reductionists is jumpstarting the wheel of progress and threatening Luddite control; Elliot’s estate is floundering; and she’s forced 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 Elliott wonders if this could be their second chance, Kai seems determined to show Elliot exactly what she gave up when she abandoned him.
But Elliot soon discovers her childhood friend carries a secret—-one that could change the society in which they live…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 has lost him forever.
My Thoughts: The title sounds so poetic and the cover also give off a futuristic, dreamy vibe that I feel I will enjoy. I've read Peterfreund's Rampant and Ascendant, both books that I really liked, so I am confidently looking forward to a remarkable story. This is technically YA, right? Doesn't matter. Still can't wait to get my hands on it!
