The world is changing: the government has seized control of every aspect of society, and now, kids are disappearing. For 15-year-old Wisty and her older brother Whit, life turns upside down when they are torn from their parents one night and slammed into a secret prison for no reason they can comprehend. The New Order, as it is known, is clearly trying to suppress Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Being a Normal Teenager. But while trapped in this totalitarian nightmare, Wisty and Whit discover they have incredible powers they’d never dreamed of. Can this newly minted witch and wizard master their skills in time to save themselves, their parents–and maybe the world?
I picked up a copy of this at BEA in May. I haven’t read it yet but I really want to. Here’s the cover that the ARC has. I really like this and I’m not sure why they changed it. Maybe it wasn’t dark enough?
And here’s another random cover I saw for it.
I do like the flaming W with the heads popping out the sides one better than that one but I love the blue cover.
So, if you have a Kindle go ahead and get this one for FREE!
