WoW Pick of the Week



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It is a chance to share those new releases were are super anxious to get our hands on and read.

Believe it or not, I choose this weeks pick because of the author, cover or synopsis be danged, although, thankfully, I like them both too. ;)  She better not let me down though!





Book Description:

Tell the Wind & Fire is about a young girl called Lucie who lives in a New York very different from the New York we know: the city is torn between two very different kinds of magic, and Lucie’s own family was torn apart years ago by that conflict. Lucie wears magic rings and carries a burden of guilt she can’t share with anyone.

The light in her life is her sweetheart boyfriend Ethan, but it turns out Ethan has a secret too: a soulless doppelganger created by dark magic, who has to conceal the face identical to Ethan’s with a hood fastened by a collar nobody but a Light magician with magical rings can take off… and who introduces himself to both of them by, for reasons nobody can understand, saving Ethan’s life…

  6. I'm definitely curious about this one Ali, though it sounds like it has the potential to be heartbreaking depending on how things go down with Ethan. You'll have to tell me how it ends when you read it ;-)

  9. I haven't read a book by Brennan as a solo author, but I really enjoyed the ones that she co-authored with Cassandra Clare (Bane Chronicles) and Justine Larbalestier (Team Human) so I'm looking forward to reading this one.

  12. I like the sound of this, but I am very hesitant, I absolutely hated the cliffhangers in her other series, so much so that I refused to read her again. I might try this if there isn't a brutal cliffhanger.
