On My Wishlist (6)

On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It's where you can list all the books you desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming.

OMG! I want this series. It looks and sounds utterly awesome

A startling, thrilling novel set in a dystopian future ravaged by global warming
It is 2099 - and the world is gradually drowning, as mighty Arctic ice floes melt, the seas rise, and land disappears forever beneath storm-tossed waves. For 15-year-old Mara, her family and community, huddled on the fast-disappearing island of Wing, the new century brings flight. Packed into tiny boats, a terrifying journey begins to a bizarre city that rises into the sky, built on the drowned remains of the ancient city of Glasgow. But even here there is no safety and, shut out of the city, Mara realizes they are asylum-seekers in a world torn between high-tech wizardry and the most primitive injustice. To save her people, Mara must not only find a way into the city but also search for a new land and a new home...

A startling, thrilling novel set in a dystopian future ravaged by global warming - ZENITH is the stunning sequel to the critically acclaimed, bestselling EXODUS.
Sixteen-year-old Mara and her ship of refugees are tracking the North Star, desperate to find a homeland in the melted ice mountains of Greenland. The vast, floating city of Pomperoy is just one of the shocks that are not in their navigation plans. Unwittingly, the refugees bring catastrophe in their wake for Tuck, a gypsea pirate-boy, and also for Ilira - a land whose inhabitants exist in a state of terror at the top of the world.
Back in the drowned ruins at the feet of the towering sky city, Fox is beginning his battle with the cruel, corrupt forces that rule the New World. But separated from Mara, his resolve begins to waver . . .

A novel of extraordinary imaginative vision and emotional power – AURORA is the eagerly anticipated conclusion to the critically acclaimed, bestselling EXODUS and ZENITH.
Much of Earth is underwater – in the high mountains at the top of the world Lily survives with her mother and her people . . . but she feels trapped. Elsewhere, beneath the exclusive sky-cities that tower above the waves, Fox has been waiting too. But when Fox and Lily meet on a virtual plane, they realize the time has come to act. The world must be made whole again, even if it means losing each other!
The third and final installment in the brilliantly imagined, hugely romantic and poetically told 
trilogy set in a frighteningly realistic future.

All summaries taken from the Macmillian Website which you will find here. 

All three are published by Pan Macmillan and are available to buy now.
