Waiting on Wednesday: The Murder Complex

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that highlights upcoming book releases that we're eagerly waiting for. :)
Merry Christmas! Hope everyone receives everything they want this year for Christmas! :)

This week's Waiting On Wednesday is The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummings, coming out on June 10, 2014 from Greenwillow Books
The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummings
The cover is bloody good. I think that was a pun? I'm not sure. Puns and I never got along. Now Irony and me.... *grins*
Synopsis:
An action-packed, blood-soaked, futuristic debut thriller set in a world where the murder rate is higher than the birthrate. For fans of Moira Young’s Dust Lands series, La Femme Nikita, and the movie Hanna.

Meadow Woodson, a fifteen-year-old girl who has been trained by her father to fight, to kill, and to survive in any situation, lives with her family on a houseboat in Florida. The state is controlled by The Murder Complex, an organization that tracks the population with precision.

The plot starts to thicken when Meadow meets Zephyr James, who is—although he doesn’t know it—one of the MC’s programmed assassins. Is their meeting a coincidence? Destiny? Or part of a terrifying strategy? And will Zephyr keep Meadow from discovering the haunting truth about her family?

Action-packed, blood-soaked, and chilling, this is a dark and compelling debut novel by Lindsay Cummings.

I must have been calendar deprived and forgot about Christmas (Person: How dare you) when I chose The Murder Complex. Blood and murder isn't exactly the greatest pick for a cheery Christmas, lol. *sigh* Oops.

So, what's your pick for this week? I'll bet that it's actually more cheerful than this one, but regardless, I think I might really enjoy The Murder Complex when it comes out. Maybe it'll even land into one of my favorites... since it sounds like my type of book (hey, I like Nikita. And action). :3
