This new edition is the combination of the two novels in the Inside series, Inside Out and Outside In. Inside has only come out this week and is perfect for those who have yet to read the series, having both books in one.
Inside (Insider #1-2) by Maria V. Snyder
The world of Inside is simple. Do your job, stay out of the way and don't dream of anything better. Because as every Scrub knows, there are no other options.
Until Trella—the Queen of the Pipes, as some call her—gets involved with a revolution that will rock her world….
Trella was just doing a favor for a friend—her only friend. Hiding an injured man from the Pop Cops seemed easy enough—though dangerous. But then she discovered that the myths of Outside might be real….
Being Inside's hero only left Trella with more work. Ducking those responsibilities, she continued to explore her stark world—and found something she never expected. Strangers. From Outside…
An excerpt for Inside Out can be found here.
Here are the original novels and there blurbs, in case you want to compare them to the joint book and blurb.
Inside Out (Insider #1) by Maria V. Snyder
Keep Your Head Down.
Don't Get Noticed.
I'm Trella. I'm a scrub. A nobody. One of thousands who work the lower levels, keeping Inside clean for the Uppers. I've got one friend, do my job and try to avoid the Pop Cops. So what if I occasionally use the pipes to sneak around the Upper levels? The only neck at risk is my own…until I accidentally start a rebellion and become the go-to girl to lead a revolution.
Outside In (Insider #2) by Maria V. Snyder
Me? A Leader?
Okay, I did prove that there's more to Inside than we knew. That a whole world exists beyond this cube we live in. And finding that led to a major rebellion - between worker scrubs like me and the snobby uppers who rule our world.
Make that ruled. Because of me, we're free. I thought that meant I was off the hook, and could go off on my own again - while still touching base with Riley, of course. He's the one upper I think I can trust.
But then we learned that there's outside and then there is Outside. And something from Outside wants In.
The books covers shown above are the Australian ones. But I was thinking how gorgeous all the other country's covers are an thought that I should share then with you all, too! Enjoy!
