Waiting on Wednesday (2)

This feature is hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine!

My pick for this week is Heart's Blood by Juliet Marillier! I loved Marillier's Sevenwaters Trilogy (which isn't really a trilogy because the fourth book just came out...) and this is her newest book to be released in the US on November 3rd, 2009!

Here is a description from FantasticFiction:
"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."

Here's the mini summary:
"Anluan has been crippled since childhood, part of a curse that has besieged his family and his home of Whistling Tor. But when the young scribe Caitrin is retained to sort through family documents, she brings about unexpected changes in the household, casting a hopeful light against the despairing shadows.

But to truly free Anluan’s burdened soul, Caitrin must unravel the web of sorcery woven by his ancestors before it claims his life—and their love…"

This one should be really good!


  1. I can't wait to read this one either. I still need to read a bunch of her other books though!


Make sure you whisper, I'm hiding!
