Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event which aims to shines a light on eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.
Unearthed by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
Release Date: January 9th 2018
When Earth intercepts a message from a long-extinct alien race, it seems like the solution the planet has been waiting for. The Undying’s advanced technology has the potential to undo environmental damage and turn lives around, and Gaia, their former home planet, is a treasure trove waiting to be uncovered.
For Jules Addison and his fellow scholars, the discovery of an alien culture offers unprecedented opportunity for study…as long as scavengers like Amelia Radcliffe don’t loot everything first. Mia and Jules’ different reasons for smuggling themselves onto Gaia put them immediately at odds, but after escaping a dangerous confrontation with other scavvers, they form a fragile alliance.
In order to penetrate the Undying temple and reach the tech and information hidden within, the two must decode the ancient race’s secrets and survive their traps. But the more they learn about the Undying, the more their presence in the temple seems to be part of a grand design that could spell the end of the human race…
One of the very first sci-fi series I picked up was the Starbound series by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. Not only did it cement my love of the sci-fi genre but also my love for both these authors. Despite being wary of the hype I picked up Illuminae because Kaufman’s name was attached to it, and I was even more excited for the release of Hunted when I saw it had been written by Spooner.
When it comes to Unearthed I literally did not need to see more than the names Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner before adding it to my to-read list. Luckily the blurb sounds amazing but even when this was an untitled project on Goodreads, with no cover and no blurb, it was still an automatic add to my TBR list.
What do you think of Unearthed? Is it a must on your to-read list, or are there any other books you can’t wait for the release date of? Let me know in the comments and let me know if you took part in this week’s Waiting on Wednesday as well.
