Waiting on Wednesday #42: Our Lady of the Ice by Cassandra Rose Clarke
"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
I've never read anything by Cassandra Rose Clarke before, honestly, I've never even heard of her. But I'm not one to pass up a dystopian with a gorgeous cover. I have no idea how I'm going to handle four main characters at the same time unless they team up. A team I can handle. Four separate main characters, whew. I sure hope Cassandra is up for the challenge to make it comprehensible. But I foresee greatness!

Hope City, Antarctica. The southernmost city in the world, with only a glass dome and a faltering infrastructure to protect its citizens from the freezing, ceaseless winds of the Antarctic wilderness. Within this bell jar four people–some human, some not–will shape the future of the city forever:
Eliana Gomez, a female PI looking for a way to the mainland.
Diego Amitrano, the right-hand man to the gangster who controls the city’s food come winter.
Marianella Luna, an aristocrat with a dangerous secret.
Sofia, an android who has begun to evolve.
But the city is evolving too, and in the heart of the perilous Antarctic winter, factions will clash, dreams will shatter, and that frozen metropolis just might boil over…
