Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming books we are looking forward to being released.
My pick for this week is:
Title: Tell the Wind and Fire
Author: Sarah Rees Brennan
Expected pub. date: April 5th, 2016
Genre: YA Fantasy
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…
Why am I waiting for this book? I've never read a book by Sarah Rees Brennan and I only know of her through Cassandra Clare and the Magnus Bane short stories. But it's kind of hard to gauge a writing style when it's intermixed with someone else's, so I've been wanting to give her own books a chance. This one sounds pretty amazing and I've read very little on doppelgangers but the topic appeals to me. Besides... New York is kind of my soft spot regarding settings. Overall, it should be a perfect recipe for awesomeness, I have great hopes for this one!
