Blurb from amazon.com please scroll down for my review. Who was responsible for the extinction of the wexkians?
In the sequel to Curse, book 1 of the Wexkia trilogy, Nell embarks on a double quest: to find the missing pages of the Book of Wexkia and to locate the incarcerated Shahs – a wexkian just like her. With faithful friends in tow and surrounded by unseen enemies, she travels to the worlds of Corl, Linque and Gramlax where she hopes to find the answers to her endless questions.
But as Nell learns to control her growing powers, who can she trust? Will the risks she takes to unlock the secret of her race’s origins and expose the true adversary lead to war?
Paul Bennett is a Walker—someone who can walk the night in their dreams free of their body—and a member of Astralis, an agency funded by the UN that uses Walkers to gather intelligence.
A rogue Walker from Astralis attempted to take over the agency six months previous, but failed in his attempt. Now, he has formed his own agency and declared war on Astralis, stopping at nothing to gain control of every Walker in the world.
Summary from goodreads.com scroll down for my review: Paul Bennett doesn’t realize that his sleep disorder is actually a gift that allows him to travel the night free of his body. That is, not until he is approached by a member of Astralis; an organization funded by the government that uses people with his talent to gather information for the greater good.
At Astralis, Paul finds inclusion and friendship on a level that he’d never had the chance to experience and begins to believe that Astralis could provide a new life for him. It isn’t long, however, before he realizes that Astralis is an organization under siege from within. Paul finds himself forced to either choose a side or leave Astralis forever.
The Ship Breaker (The Ship Breaker #1) – Paolo Bacigalupi http://windupstories.com/
n this powerful novel, award-winning author Paolo Bacigalupi delivers a thrilling, fast-paced adventure set in a vivid and raw, uncertain future.

It is the first book I have read by this author. Paolo Bacigalpui has won the 2011 Michael L. Printz Award for Excellence in Young Adult Literature for this book, and he has also won other awards for some of his other novels.
The whole book makes you really think about global warming, oil, the environment and if this may or not actually happen in the future. Continue reading
