Breaking the Spine. This meme spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.
first book in the American Fairy trilogy
by Sarah Zettel
Expected Publication: June 26, 2012
Summary from Goodreads:
This new trilogy will capture the hearts of readers who adore Libba Bray's Gemma Doyle series. Callie LeRoux lives in Slow Run, Kansas, helping her mother run their small hotel and trying not to think about the father she's never met. Lately all of her energy is spent battling the constant storms plaguing the Dust Bowl and their effects on her health. Callie is left alone, when her mother goes missing in a dust storm. Her only hope comes from a mysterious man offering a few clues about her destiny and the path she must take to find her parents in "the golden hills of the west" (California). Along the way she meets Jack a young hobo boy who is happy to keep her company—there are dangerous, desperate people at every turn. And there's also an otherworldly threat to Callie. Warring fae factions, attached to the creative communities of American society, are very aware of the role this half-mortal, half-fae teenage girl plays in their fate.
As I said before, I am not one to compare one series to another and I do no like it when they say that if you like such and such they you would like this too. Inevitably there would be comparisons and if this book did not live up to the other then disappointments would ensue.
But! It says the Gemma Doyle series! I certainly adored it. What's more is that this story is about faeries which is, as I've said numerous times before, one of my favorite genres.
