WoW: Winterspell

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.



New York City, 1899. Clara Stole, the mayor's ever-proper daughter, leads a double life. Since her mother's murder, she has secretly trained in self-defense with the mysterious Drosselmeyer.

Then, on Christmas Eve, disaster strikes.

Her home is destroyed, her father abducted--by beings distinctly nothuman. To find him, Clara journeys to the war-ravaged land of Cane. Her only companion is the dethroned prince Nicholas, bound by a wicked curse. If they're to survive, Clara has no choice but to trust him, but his haunted eyes burn with secrets--and a need she can't define. With the dangerous, seductive faery queen Anise hunting them, Clara soon realizes she won't leave Cane unscathed--if she leaves at all.


The Nutcracker plus Claire Legrand's amazing writing? YES! YES! YES!

Winterspell comes out September 30th and that day can't get here fast enough.

Oh wow, this sounds amazing! I wonder how she travels from out world to Cane, but this definitely looks like the kind of read I might enjoy! Also, Nutcracker, awesome! Thanks for sharing this one :)

YES. I mean, I'd read it just for the cover along (so freaking pretty, and a dagger. Look a dagger!) but sounds amazing too, so win-win!

Here's mine
