Waiting on Wednesday (124)
Princess of the Silver Woods
by Jessica Day George
To be release: December 12, 2012
Summary from Baker and Taylor:
"When Petunia, the youngest of King Gregor's twelve dancing daughters, is invited to visit an elderly friend in the neighboring country of Westfalin, she welcomes the change of scenery. But in order to reach Westfalin, Petunia must pass through a forest where strange two-legged wolves are rumored to exist. Wolves intent on redistributing the wealth of the noble citizens who have entered their territory. But the bandit-wolves prove more rakishly handsome than truly dangerous, and it's not until Petunia reaches her destination that she realizes the kindly grandmother she has been summoned to visit is really an enemy bent on restoring an age-old curse. The stories of Red Riding Hood and Robin Hood get a twist as Petunia and her many sisters take on bandits, grannies, and the new King Under Stone to end their family curse once and for all."
If you haven't read anything by Jessica Day George, you should really get on it. She is a fantastic author and I have loved all of her other titles. She's so good at the whole twisted fairy tale. I cannot wait to see what she does with the Red Riding Hood and Robin Hood stories. She is definitely a master!
What are you waiting on this week?
