Silver in the Blood
Jessica Day George
Expected publication: July 7, 2015
Genre: YA Paranormal, Historical Fiction
A New York Times bestselling author brings dark secrets to life in a lush new YA perfect for fans of Libba Bray or Cassandra Clare.

Society girls from New York City circa 1890, Dacia and Lou never desired to know more about their lineage, instead preferring to gossip about the mysterious Romanian family that they barely knew. But upon turning seventeen, the girls must return to their homeland to meet their relatives, find proper husbands, and—most terrifyingly—learn the deep family secrets of The Claw, The Wing, and The Smoke. The Florescus, after all, are shape-shifters, and it is time for Dacia and Lou to fulfill the prophecy that demands their acceptance of this fate . . . or fight against this cruel inheritance with all their might.

With a gorgeous Romanian setting, stunning Parisian gowns, and dark brooding young men, readers will be swept up by this epic adventure of two girls in a battle for their lives.
I am not fond of reading about shape-shifters. I don't have anything against them. Maybe it's just that I haven't read anything interesting . Perhaps, one of you could recommend some great YA shape-shifter stories.

Anyway, I'm going to make an exception for this one. It's historical fiction with balls and gowns, debutantes and brooding young men... yes, I'll make an exception for this one.

  3. Awesome choice! This is the first that I've heard about this one but I adore the cover. I've heard of Jessica Day George but not read any of her novels! I hope you have a great week. :)

  4. It's a good thing you want to make an exception for this one, I think. For all the reasons you mentionened: gowns, intrigue, brooding guys... but I love anything shape-shifting, so the family secrets and the prophecy intrests me as well. Very nice pick this week! =)
