Signed: Eliza Crewe's debut CRACKED

You know, I often read announcements about authors being signed, or new series, etc., but I don't generally do anything other than read those announcements - I don't share them until there's something more concrete (like a cover) to share with you. But this one... this one I thought I'd share, because hello! I am a sucker for a good first line.

Eliza Crewe
Strange Chemistry, the YA imprint of Angry Robot, has signed Eliza Crewe with her debut, Cracked, and the synopsis they released definitely caught my attention:

Meet Meda. She eats people.

Well, technically, she eats their soul. But she totally promises to only go for people who deserve it. She’s special. It’s not her fault she enjoys it. She can’t help being a bad guy. Besides, what else can she do? Her mother was killed and it’s not like there are any other “soul-eaters” around to show her how to be different. That is, until the three men in suits show up.

They can do what she can do. They’re like her. Meda might finally have a chance to figure out what she is. The problem? They kind of want to kill her. Before they get the chance Meda is rescued by crusaders, members of an elite group dedicated to wiping out Meda’s kind. This is her chance! Play along with the “good guys” and she’ll finally figure out what, exactly, her “kind” is.

Be careful what you wish for. Playing capture the flag with her mortal enemies, babysitting a teenage boy with a hero complex, and avoiding a bad-ass cripple that doesn’t trust her are bad enough. But the Hunger is gaining on her.

The more she learns, the worse it gets. And when Meda uncovers a shocking secret about her mother, her past, and her destiny… she may finally give into it.

Cracked will be published by Strange Chemistry in November 2013. So we've got awhile to wait, but I'll definitely be keeping an eye out. How about you guys?
