Waiting on Wednesday *134*

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we spotlight an upcoming book release we're especially looking forward to!

Here's my pick this week: 

Thornghost by Tone Almjhell
Expected Publication: August 16th 2016 by Dial Books

Something strange is happening to the woods and water around Niklas Summerhill’s home: Animals are dying, Niklas’s grandmother doesn’t seem like herself, and his uncle is suddenly lost in grief over his sister, Niklas’s mother, who died seven years ago. When Niklas discovers an ancient key, he and his talking lynx companion, Secret, leave home behind to travel to a different realm. But this realm, populated by animals, is in danger as well: A tribe of evil trolls is wreaking havoc, a mysterious enemy called the Sparrow King is bringing his wrath down upon the animals, and the Rosa Toraquata, the root that connects this realm to Niklas’s own, has developed a dark twist that is infecting the land. Can Niklas and Secret save the animal realm—and their own?
Three words sold me on this book: talking lynx companion.  I adore magical animal companions, especially of the feline variety ♥ More than that though, there is A LOT to get excited about with Thornghost: different realms (win), evil trolls, an ancient key and a dark Sparrow King. Eeep! Basically? I need this book like air.

How good does Thornghost sound?!
What are you waiting on this week?
