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.
My love of Mercedes Lackey (and especially her Elemental Masters series) is well documented here on the blog. I adore fantasy (of course), but this series, with its historical Edwardian/WWI setting, is the best sort of comfort reading. Think of it like this: Downton Abbey, but in book form. Add in magic, and a loose framework of fairytales retold. Dead ringer for MYFAVORITEEVER. Glory of glories, Lackey is still writing in the series. Her next one comes out this summer! Home From the Sea will be released by DAW Hardcover on June 5, 2012.
This story combines East of the Sun and West of the Moon, as well as Tam Lin, with the Selkie of Sul Skerry. We'll see Nan and Sarah (from Wizard of London) as adults, coming into their own--and Grey and Neville, of course!
