“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event created by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
LOOK AT THIS BOOK COVER THOUGH. Isn’t it gorgeous? Rae Carson is back in town for a new trilogy starting with Walk on Earth a Stranger, which comes out September 22, 2015. This is super exciting, considering I devoured her previous fantasy trilogy, The Girl of Fire and Thorns. In her new book, the main character has magic during the time of the American Gold Rush. Check it! I did my National History Day Fair on the Gold Rush. You know how excited I am for this????? Muy, muy excited.
Walk on Earth a Stranger
Author: Rae Carson
Series: The Gold Seer Trilogy
Release Date: September 22, 2015
The first book in a new trilogy from acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Rae Carson. A young woman with the magical ability to sense the presence of gold must flee her home, taking her on a sweeping and dangerous journey across Gold Rush–era America.
Lee Westfall has a secret. She can sense the presence of gold in the world around her. Veins deep beneath the earth, pebbles in the river, nuggets dug up from the forest floor. The buzz of gold means warmth and life and home—until everything is ripped away by a man who wants to control her. Left with nothing, Lee disguises herself as a boy and takes to the trail across the country. Gold was discovered in California, and where else could such a magical girl find herself, find safety? Rae Carson, author of the acclaimed Girl of Fire and Thorns trilogy, dazzles with this new fantasy that subverts both our own history and familiar fantasy tropes.
Walk on Earth a Stranger, the first book in this new trilogy, introduces—as only Rae Carson can—a strong heroine, a perilous road, a fantastical twist, and a slow-burning romance. Includes a map and author’s note on historical research.
Is it just me, or is the more I read the blurb, the more I want to read it? I guess the only acceptable choice is to pretend it doesn’t exist (for now). 😦 What books are you guys excited for later in the year?
