"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. It's hosted by Breaking the Spine.
Can we please just take a minute to sigh over this cover? *pauses for effect* I have a huge case of cover love for Winterkill, but the synopsis sealed this for me as a TBR pile addition. It sounds like a book that's right up my alley, and I can't wait to devour it! Winterkill releases September 9, 2014.
Emmeline knows the woods outside her settlement are forbidden. The mysterious enemy that wiped out half her people lurks there, keeping them isolated in an unfamiliar land with merciless winters.
Living with the shame of her grandmother's insubordination, Emmeline has learned to keep her head down and her quick tongue silent. When the settlement leader asks for her hand in marriage, it's a rare opportunity to wash the family stain clean--even if she has eyes for another. But before she is forced into an impossible decision, her dreams urge her out to the woods, where she finds a path she can't help but follow. The trail leads to a secret that someone in the settlement will kill to protect. Her grandmother went down that path and paid the price.
If Emmeline isn't careful, she will be next.
Now that you know what I'm excited for, share out! What are you eagerly waiting for?
