Waiting on Wednesday #1
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
This week, I am anticipating Soundless by Richelle Mead.
From Richelle Mead, the #1 internationally bestselling author of Vampire Academy and Bloodlines, comes a breathtaking new fantasy steeped in Chinese folklore.
For as long as Fei can remember, there has been no sound in her village, where rocky terrain and frequent avalanches prevent residents from self-sustaining. Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom.
When villagers begin to lose their sight, deliveries from the zipline shrink and many go hungry. Fei’s home, the people she loves, and her entire existence is plunged into crisis, under threat of darkness and starvation.
But soon Fei is awoken in the night by a searing noise, and sound becomes her weapon.
Richelle Mead takes readers on a triumphant journey from the peak of Fei’s jagged mountain village to the valley of Beiugo, where a startling truth and an unlikely romance will change her life forever...
(Synopsis from Goodreads.)
Why I'm waiting on this:
I read the Vampire Academy, and the Bloodlines series, both by Richelle Mead. I am absolutely obsessed with both of them. Since reading those, Richelle has become one of my favorite authors. I also love books about Chinese folklore.
That's what I can't wait for this Wednesday. Are you also looking forward to this? What are you eagerly anticipating? Please leave a comment and let me know.
