Wren MacAvoy works as a coal miner for a domed city that was constructed in the mid-nineteenth century to protect the royal blood line of England when astronomers spotted a comet on a collision course with Earth. Humanity would be saved by the most groundbreaking technology of the time. But after nearly 200 years of life beneath the dome, society has become complacent and the coal is running out. Plus there are those who wonder, is there life outside the dome or is the world still consumed by fire? When one of Wren's friends escapes the confines of the dome, he is burned alive and put on display as a warning to those seeking to disrupt the dome’s way of life. But Alex’s final words are haunting. “The sky is blue.” 
What happens next is a whirlwind of adventure, romance, conspiracy and the struggle to stay alive in a world where nothing is as it seems. Wren unwittingly becomes a catalyst for a revolution that destroys the dome and the only way to survive might be to embrace what the entire society has feared their entire existence.-Goodreads

My Thoughts
I LOVE the cover of Ashes of Twilight! When I first saw this book the colors really stood out to me and I love how the bird stands out so much against the blue. The plot synopsis of this book also sounds really interesting! I really want to see how people live in this dome and how different the world has changed. I will definitely be checking this book out in the fall!!

What are you waiting for this week? Comment below and let me know :D
