Hello, and welcome to my blog. I'm still new at this, but please feel free to have a look around. Also, if you are interested, tomorrow I shall be posting a review of Mirrorscape by Mike Wilks, and on Monday I will be posting my first giveaway in honor of that most hideously wonderful of all holidays, Halloween.
Now on to what you are all here for, what is this weeks Waiting on Wednesday?
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, where book bloggers share what books they can't wait to come out.
This week my selection is Faerie Winter by Janni Lee Simner. There isn't any info out on what this book is going to be about yet, but it is the sequel to Simner's 2009 book Bones of Faerie, which I absolutly adored. Faerie Winter is curently scheduled to be released on April 11th.
Since I can't give you any info on this book, if you haven't read Bones of Faerie here's the blurb for it from Amazon. You may want to check it out, it truly is worth the read!
It has been 20 years since the war between faeries and humans destroyed everything. Liza, a teenager living in what was once the Midwest, has always been taught that magic kills. When Lizas mother gives birth to a faerie baby with hair clear as glass, her father abandons the infant on a hillside to die; Lizas mother then runs away, and Liza begins to have magical visions of her own. Petrified that her powers might cause death, Liza flees into the woods with her friend Matthew, only to be attacked by deadly trees and rescued by a woman with magic. The plot quickens as Liza realizes that the woman is connected to her mothers past, knowledge that propels Liza into a dangerous journey into the land of Faerie, in search of her mother. Debut novelist Simners style is poetic (A land of steel and glass, of towers and sharp angles. A sky the color of dried blood), but she only vaguely describes Lizas world. Its hard to understand how, for example, a faerie differs from humans with magical powers, or what triggered the cataclysmic faerie war. Despite the murkiness, the plotting is strong, and readers will want to stay with Liza until her questions are resolved
