Synopsis: Words are the most dangerous weapon of all.

In the violent country of Ludania, the classes are strictly divided by the language they speak. The smallest transgression, like looking a member of a higher class in the eye while they are speaking their native tongue, results in immediate execution. Seventeen-year-old Charlaina has always been able to understand the languages of all classes, and she’s spent her life trying to hide her secret. The only place she can really be free is the drug-fueled underground clubs where people go to shake off the oppressive rules of the world they live in. It's there that she meets a beautiful and mysterious boy named Max who speaks a language she's never heard before . . . and her secret is almost exposed.

Charlie is intensely attracted to Max, even though she can’t be sure where his real loyalties lie. As the emergency drills give way to real crisis and the violence escalates, it becomes clear that Charlie is the key to something much bigger: her country’s only chance for freedom from the terrible power of a deadly regime.

I am absolutely dying to read this one. I love Kimberly Derting's Body Finder series and I've heard SUCH amazing things about The Pledge that I don't know how I'm going to be able to wait until November to read it! Alas, I'm sure it'll be well worth the wait!! :)


  1. Me too!! This sounds amazing, I love the premise. Though I've read a few mixed reviews, I'm still eagerly awaiting it because I loved The Body Finder (shame on me though, I have Desires of the Dead but still haven't read it yet!)



Want to tell me something? :)
