This week, I've chosen...
The Faerie Ring by Kiki Hamilton(Goodreads profile)
Publisher: Tor Teen
Release Date: September 27, 2011
Debut novelist Kiki Hamilton takes readers from the gritty slums and glittering ballrooms of Victorian London to the beguiling but menacing Otherworld of the Fey in this spellbinding tale of romance, suspense, and danger.
The year is 1871, and Tiki has been making a home for herself and her family of orphans in a deserted hideaway adjoining Charing Cross Station in central London. Their only means of survival is by picking pockets. One December night, Tiki steals a ring, and sets off a chain of events that could lead to all-out war with the Fey. For the ring belongs to Queen Victoria, and it binds the rulers of England and the realm of Faerie to peace. With the ring missing, a rebel group of faeries hopes to break the treaty with dark magic and blood—Tiki’s blood.
Unbeknownst to Tiki, she is being watched—and protected—by Rieker, a fellow thief who suspects she is involved in the disappearance of the ring. Rieker has secrets of his own, and Tiki is not all that she appears to be. Her very existence haunts Prince Leopold, the Queen’s son, who is driven to know more about the mysterious mark that encircles her wrist.
Prince, pauper, and thief—all must work together to secure the treaty…
Can't wait to read this one! I've been looking forward to it for so long now. As you probably know, I love faeries, and Victorian London is always a fun setting. Plus, the early reviews for this one are incredible. NO ONE DISLIKES IT (that I've found).
I have enough swag for this book (bookmarks, postcards, button) and I can't wait until I get to add the actual book to my library. Release date isn't too far away now!
What are you waiting on this lovely Wednesday?
