No one crosses the wall of light . . . except for one girl who doesn’t remember who she is, where she came from, or how she survived. A harrowing, powerful debut thriller about finding yourself and protecting your future—no matter how short and uncertain it may be.

The Arclight is the last defense. The Fade can’t get in. Outside the Arclight’s border of high-powered beams is the Dark. And between the Light and the Dark is the Grey, a narrow, barren no-man’s-land. That’s where the rescue team finds Marina, a lone teenage girl with no memory of the horrors she faced or the family she lost. Marina is the only person who has ever survived an encounter with the Fade. She’s the first hope humanity has had in generations, but she could also be the catalyst for their final destruction. Because the Fade will stop at nothing to get her back. Marina knows it. Tobin, who’s determined to take his revenge on the Fade, knows it. Anne-Marie, who just wishes it were all over, knows it.

When one of the Fade infiltrates the Arclight and Marina recognizes it, she will begin to unlock secrets she didn’t even know she had. Who will Marina become? Who can she never be again?
First of all, I want to apologise for the lack of Wishlist Wednesday last week! It's the first time I've ever completely missed a Wishlist Wednesday post since I started doing them. I was ridiculously busy last week, and I just simply didn't have the time to spare. This week is slightly less hectic though – fortunately!

Anyway, this week I went for something that I have literally only heard of in the past seven days. I don't know how it escaped my notice before, but it did. I was out shopping with a friend when I spotted this is one of the bookshops we went in. The cover immediately caught my attention and I was wondering what on Earth the book could be about to get a cover like that. And instantly the synopsis drew me in – the only reason it's on my wishlist and not already on my shelves is that the only copy the bookshop had was slightly damaged!
I will definitely be getting this one soon.

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)
