Waiting on Wednesday – Tower of Thorns
Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to let us share our excitement for books coming out soon.
I feel like I’m a bit late with this one compared to everyone else. But I loved Dreamer’s Pool, I can not wait to get my hands on Tower of Thorns!
Author: Juliet Marillier
Expected publication: November 15th, 2015
Award-winning author Juliet Marillier’s “lavishly detailed”* Blackthorn & Grim series continues as a mysterious creature holds an enchanted and imperiled ancient Ireland in thrall.
Disillusioned healer Blackthorn and her companion, Grim, have settled in Dalriada to wait out the seven years of Blackthorn’s bond to her fey mentor, hoping to avoid any dire challenges. But trouble has a way of seeking out Blackthorn and Grim.
Lady Geiléis, a noblewoman from the northern border, has asked for the prince of Dalriada’s help in expelling a howling creature from an old tower on her land—one surrounded by an impenetrable hedge of thorns. Casting a blight over the entire district, and impossible to drive out by ordinary means, it threatens both the safety and the sanity of all who live nearby. With no ready solutions to offer, the prince consults Blackthorn and Grim.
As Blackthorn and Grim begin to put the pieces of this puzzle together, it’s apparent that a powerful adversary is working behind the scenes. Their quest is about to become a life and death struggle—a conflict in which even the closest of friends can find themselves on opposite sides.

November? Too far away. They should move that one up because of reasons.

Sounds like a series I need to catch up with – I like the more traditional fantasies with fairy tale-ish themes. Nice pick.

This is probably THE book I’m looking forward to most in 2015. Well, easily in the top three anyway. November really is too far away…

Yep – I’m also really looking forward to this one. I absolutely loved Dreamer’s Pool. And look at the cover – I want to own these books simply for the covers – how fickle!
