Soundless
Richelle Mead
Expected Publication: November 10, 2015
Genre: YA Fantasy
From Richelle Mead, the #1 internationally bestselling author of Vampire Academy and Bloodlines, comes a breathtaking new fantasy steeped in Chinese folklore.

For as long as Fei can remember, there has been no sound in her village, where rocky terrain and frequent avalanches prevent residents from self-sustaining. Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom.

When villagers begin to lose their sight, deliveries from the zipline shrink and many go hungry. Fei’s home, the people she loves, and her entire existence is plunged into crisis, under threat of darkness and starvation.

But soon Fei is awoken in the night by a searing noise, and sound becomes her weapon.

Richelle Mead takes readers on a triumphant journey from the peak of Fei’s jagged mountain village to the valley of Beiugo, where a startling truth and an unlikely romance will change her life forever...
I am always all ears whenever I hear about a book inspired by Asian culture. The thing is, I am so particular with how it's written in the sense that did the author understand the culture at all without falling to that this-is-just-typical-YA-slapped-with-Asian-elements pit?

But Soundless sounds (yeah, yeah, I noticed) an intriguing, new concept.

  1. Ooh, this looks interesting. I read Richelle Mead's first book in the Vampire Academy series, but I didn't love it. If you ever read this, let me know how it is.

  2. Oh yes. I'm most definitely waiting on Soundless. I mean, how mysterious is that blurb? And Richelle Mead just knows her business, so what's not to like? And the cover is really pretty too :) Great pick!
