Waiting on WednesdayWaiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming book releases that we're especially looking forward to!
Here's what I'm waiting on this week:
Winterspell by Claire LegrandInspired by The Nutcracker. Need I say more? Well, in case I do, here goes: It's set in turn-of-the-century New York, and the MC is secretly trained to kick some butt. Her travelling companion is a brooding dethroned prince...AND they've teamed up to take on the Fae. Uhm, YES PLEASE. I have a collection of Claire Legrand books on my TBR so I'm hoping to kick things off with Winterspell!
Expected Pub Date: Sept. 30th '14 by Simon & Schuster
The clock chimes midnight, a curse breaks, and a girl meets a prince . . . but what follows is not all sweetness and sugarplums.
New York City, 1899. Clara Stole, the mayor's ever-proper daughter, leads a double life. Since her mother's murder, she has secretly trained in self-defense with the mysterious Drosselmeyer.
Then, on Christmas Eve, disaster strikes.
Her home is destroyed, her father abducted--by beings distinctly not human. To find him, Clara journeys to the war-ravaged land of Cane. Her only companion is the dethroned prince Nicholas, bound by a wicked curse. If they're to survive, Clara has no choice but to trust him, but his haunted eyes burn with secrets--and a need she can't define. With the dangerous, seductive faery queen Anise hunting them, Clara soon realizes she won't leave Cane unscathed--if she leaves at all.
Inspired by The Nutcracker, Winterspell is a dark, timeless fairy tale about love and war, longing and loneliness, and a girl who must learn to live without fear.
