waiting on wednesday (11)

Wednesday, June 15, 2011 |

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.


Fox and Phoenix has been on my radar for a couple of months – first because it just looks COOL, second, because I love the title, and third… the blurbs were just too wonderful for me to consider passing it up. Fantasy authors Tamora Pierce and Sarah Beth Durst liked this book. It’s enough for me! Fox and Phoenix will be published by Viking Juvenile on October 13, 2011.


The king of Lóng City is dying. For Kai Zōu, the news means more than it does for most former street rats in the small mountain stronghold, because he and the king's daughter are close friends. Then the majestic ruler of the ghost dragons orders Kai to travel across the country to the Phoenix Empire, where the princess is learning statecraft. In a court filled with intrigue, Kai and his best friend Yún must work together to help the princess escape and return to Lóng City. A refreshing mixture of magic, wit, and action, Fox and Phoenix is an auspicious debut!


What books are you waiting on?
