Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme held by Jill at Breaking The Spine where participants share upcoming books that they can't wait to get their hands on!
My pick this week is Enchanted by Heathor Dixon:
Azalea is trapped. Just when she should feel that everything is before her . . . beautiful gowns, dashing suitors, balls filled with dancing . . . it's taken away. All of it.
The Keeper understands. He's trapped, too, held for centuries within the walls of the palace. And so he extends an invitation.
Every night, Azalea and her eleven sisters may step through the enchanted passage in their room to dance in his silver forest.
But there is a cost.
The Keeper likes to keep things.
Azalea may not realize how tangled she is in his web until it is too late.
Azalea and her younger sisters dance in the mysterious silver forest every night, escaping from the sadness of the palace and their father’s grief. What they don’t understand—although as time passes they begin to get an inkling of the danger they are in—is that the mysterious and dashing Keeper is tightening his snare with deadly purpose. Luckily, Azalea is brave and steadfast. Luckily, a handsome young army captain also has his eye on Azalea. . . .Lush, romantic, and compelling, this debut novel by Heather Dixon will thrill fans of Shannon Hale, Robin McKinley, and Edith Pattou
I thought that the product description have a more detailed idea of the storyline so I included both of the summaries that I found. I also love how Shannon Hale is mentioned in it as she is a brilliant author from the 2 books I've read of hers. I've seen it described as a retelling of the fairy tale of The Twelve Princesses, which I have heard of but don't know much but it sounds very magical. The cover is absolutely gorgeous, it's truly enough to make anyone want to pick it up.
It is scheduled to be released on the 29th March 2011, which seems such a long time away!
What are you waiting on this week?
