"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating. This week I am waiting on Mistress of the Wind by Michelle Diener. I love fairy tales and retellings. This book is a retelling of the fairy tale East of the Sun, West of the Moon. I am not as familiar with this fairy tale, but that just makes it more interesting to me. And the cover is gorgeous.
"Bjorn needs to find a very special woman . . .
The fate of his people, and his own life, depends on it. But when he does find her, she is nothing like he imagined, and may just harbor more secrets than he does himself.
Astrid has never taken well to commands. No matter who issues them . . .
She's clashed her whole life with her father, and now her lover, the mysterious man who comes to her bedroom in darkness and disappears to guard his mountain by day as a bear, is finding it out the hard way. And when he's taken by his enemies, no one is prepared for Astrid's response.
It is never wise to anger the mistress of the wind . . . "
Mistress of the Wind is due to be released December 23, 2013 from Season publishing.
What book are you waiting on this week?
