Waiting on Wednesday #40: Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson
"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
What's happened lately, all cover designers developed magical abilities?! Every new cover I see out there is drop-dead gorgeous. I mean LOOK AT IT. Magical! As for the book, I'm not completely sold on the sense-gold-superpower but if the world building is as good as in Girl of Fire and Thorns this book ought to be fantastic. Especially with a slow burning romance, the best kind of book romance.
The Gold Seer Trilogy #1
by Rae Carson
is released on September 22nd, 2015
Lee Westfall has a secret. She can sense the presence of gold in the world around her. Veins deep beneath the earth, pebbles in the river, nuggets dug up from the forest floor. The buzz of gold means warmth and life and home—until everything is ripped away by a man who wants to control her. Left with nothing, Lee disguises herself as a boy and takes to the trail across the country. Gold was discovered in California, and where else could such a magical girl find herself, find safety? Rae Carson, author of the acclaimed Girl of Fire and Thorns trilogy, dazzles with this new fantasy that subverts both our own history and familiar fantasy tropes.
Walk on Earth a Stranger, the first book in this new trilogy, introduces—as only Rae Carson can—a strong heroine, a perilous road, a fantastical twist, and a slow-burning romance. Includes a map and author’s note on historical research.
