Waiting on Wednesday: This Splintered Silence

waiting on wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme created by Breaking the Spine where each week we discuss upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This Splintered Silence by Kayla Olson


Lindley Hamilton has been the leader of the space station Lusca since every first-generation crew member on board, including her mother, the commander, were killed by a deadly virus.

Lindley always assumed she’d captain the Lusca one day, but she never thought that day would come so soon. And she never thought it would be like this—struggling to survive every day, learning how to keep the Lusca running, figuring out how to communicate with Earth, making sure they don’t run out of food.

When a member of the surviving second generation dies from symptoms that look just like the deadly virus, though, Lindley feels her world shrinking even smaller. The disease was supposed to be over; the second generation was supposed to be immune. But as more people die, Lindley must face the terrifying reality that either the virus has mutated or something worse is happening: one of their own is a killer.

Ooooooh, I feel like every time I do a Waiting on Wednesday, I reveal yet another weird buzzword/s that I have. Viruses in space always make me soooo intrigued. I generally stay away from anything sci-fi, but give me a virus in space? Yup, Mandy is alllllllllll over it. I’m also getting some serious The 100 vibes, and I’m totally down for that. And possible killer??? Spreading virus???? Murder mystery with viruses in space sounds like a weird game of Clue, but I’m ready to solve this case.

What do you think? Is this on your book TBR as well? What books are you waiting for this week? Let’s discuss in the comments below!

  1. Books like this, which are set in the future, are scary to me. It’s probably why I don’t read much post apocalyptic stuff. But this does sound like it has a kick ass MC. That right there means it will have some degree of awesome.
