Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
A thrilling, seductive new series from New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas, blending Beauty and the Beast with faerie lore.
When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.
As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.
Why I am waiting:
This is likely a popular choice on the Waiting on Wednesday circuit. After reading all of the reviews, I just couldn’t resist being on of the many. I just can not pass up the retelling of one of my favorite fairy tales combined with fae lore.
As I have not read any of the author’s previous work, I am a tad bit skeptical. But, most of the advanced reviews are glowing. So, I am going to snag a copy as soon as it hits the digital shelves.
I just hope the book is as stunning as the cover! *Drools* Can I cosplay a book cover?
