I Can’t-Wait-To-Read

Winterspell by Claire LegrandWinterspell

Release date: September 30th 2014

Synopsis from Goodreads:

 The clock chimes midnight, a curse breaks, and a girl meets a prince . . . but what follows is not all sweetness and sugarplums.

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.

Inspired by The NutcrackerWinterspell is a dark, timeless fairy tale about love and war, longing and loneliness, and a girl who must learn to live without fear.

 


Why am I excited?

 First off it’s inspired by the Nutcracker, secondly it’s a fairy tale and I just I can’t. I need it!

    Agreed!! I love this classic story retelling for a YA audience, because it does sound so fairytale-esque. And I love that it hasn’t been done before. I’m really looking forward to reading it! Great pick! My WoW.
