I’m participating today in "Waiting On" Wednesday. It is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, and its purpose is to spotlight eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.
If you like fantasy, you’ll have heard of Mercedes Lackey. The woman is scarily prolific, and it seems that EVERYONE has read something by her. I held off on trying her books until a couple of years ago, when I fell head first into a series of fairy tale-based novels set in Edwardian England called the Elemental Masters books. And that, as they say, was that.
I count Phoneix and Ashes among my favorite novels ever, and The Serpent’s Shadow is another great read. When I heard that Lackey’s latest novel would be a continuation of the series, my heart just about beat out of my chest. Now I just have to wait until it comes out! Unnatural Issue will be released by DAW Hardcover on June 7, 2011.
A brand-new Elemental Masters novel from the national bestselling author Mercedes Lackey.
Richard Whitestone is an Elemental Earth Master. Blaming himself for the death of his beloved wife in childbirth, he has sworn never to set eyes on his daughter, Suzanne. But when he finally sees her, a dark plan takes shape in his twisted mind-to use his daughter's body to bring back the spirit of his long-dead wife.
