The rules of Metaltown are simple: Work hard, keep your head down, and watch your back. You look out for number one, and no one knows that better than Ty. She’s been surviving on the factory line as long as she can remember. But now Ty has Colin. She’s no longer alone; it’s the two of them against the world. That’s something even a town this brutal can’t take away from her. Until it does.
Lena’s future depends on her family’s factory, a beast that demands a ruthless master, and Lena is prepared to be as ruthless as it takes if it means finally proving herself to her father. But when a chance encounter with Colin, a dreamer despite his circumstances, exposes Lena to the consequences of her actions, she’ll risk everything to do what’s right.
In Lena, Ty sees an heiress with a chip on her shoulder. Colin sees something more. In a world of disease and war, tragedy and betrayal, allies and enemies, all three of them must learn that challenging what they thought was true can change all the rules.
An enthralling story of friendship and rebellion, Metaltown will have you believing in the power of hope.
This title will be released on September 20, 2016.

Im so heart broken!! I was so excited when we got this signed at BEA I love Kristen's other series Article 5 so when I heard she was writing a new book I wanted to just dive right in!!! This one looked so amazing. (even if I kept getting the title wrong. lol) But once I started this book I found out that what I was hoping was going to be an unbelievable great story wasnt. At least for me.
This book for me was fairly boring, I didn't connect with any of the characters and well to tell you the truth Colin and Lena really didn't work for me at all. The pacing for this one moved like molasses. And I really just gave up on it.
