Hello humans! Thank you to everyone who commented on last week’s W2RW post with your book recommendations (feel free to do so now if you missed it). I’m back with a proper W2RW post courtesy of Sci-Fi and Fantasy week on Goodreads which inevitably lead to me adding a whole host of books to my Want-to-Read shelf!
In a futuristic world ravaged by global warming, people have lost the ability to dream, and the dreamlessness has led to widespread madness. The only people still able to dream are North America’s Indigenous people, and it is their marrow that holds the cure for the rest of the world. But getting the marrow, and dreams, means death for the unwilling donors. Driven to flight, a fifteen-year-old and his companions struggle for survival, attempt to reunite with loved ones and take refuge from the “recruiters” who seek them out to bring them to the marrow-stealing “factories.”
I’m not sure how this book passed me by last year but I’m most certainly going to grab a copy as soon as possible!
Have you read The Marrow Thieves? Let me know in the comments below!
