Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Heart’s Blood
By Juliet Marillier
Release Date: November 3, 2009

Synopsis: “This is a stunning gothic love story based on the legends of Beauty and the Beast. Whistling Tor is a place of secrets, a mysterious, wooded hill housing the crumbling fortress of a chieftain whose name is spoken throughout the district in tones of revulsion and bitterness. A curse lies over Anluan's family and his people; those woods hold a perilous force whose every whisper threatens doom. For young scribe Caitrin it is a safe haven. This place where nobody else is prepared to go seems exactly what she needs, for Caitrin is fleeing her own demons. As Caitrin comes to know Anluan and his home in more depth she realizes that it is only through her love and determination that the curse can be broken and Anluan and his people set free.” -GoodReads

Why I’m Waiting: For those of you who know me, you know that I have a very big weakness for fairy tales and their re-tellings. So, of course when I heard that one of my favorite authors, Juliet Marillier, was writing a book based on Beauty and the Beast I couldn’t have been happier. Marillier is a fantastic writer and I know she will create a wonderful world with rich characters, magic, and of course romance. I’m looking forward to getting my hands on a copy of Heart’s Blood!

  6. Looks good! I also love fairy tale retellings especially if they're into being a little more politically correct!
