Today I’m participating in "Waiting On" Wednesday, a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Its purpose is to spotlight upcoming book releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
As I’ve said before, I’m devoted to Mercedes Lackey’s Elemental Masters series. I pre-order each book, read immediately upon arrival, and if it’s up to snuff, add it to the honored ‘re-read’ shelf. There’s something about Edwardian England mixed with magic and fairy tales that is very me, and I can’t imagine not liking one these books. Steadfast, the ninth title in the Elemental Masters series, will be released on June 4, 2013 by DAW Hardcover (Penguin).
Lionel Hawkins is a magician whose act is only partially sleight of hand. The rest is real magic. He’s an Elemental Magician with the power to persuade the Elementals of Air to help him create amazing illusions. It doesn’t take long before his assistant, acrobat Katie Langford, notices that he’s no ordinary magician—and for Lionel to discover that she’s no ordinary acrobat, but rather an untrained and unawakened Fire Magician. She’s also on the run from her murderous and vengeful brute of a husband. But can she harness her magic in time to stop her husband from achieving his deadly goal?
