Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Wish. Love. Desire. Live.
Sixteen-year-old Noli Braddock's hoyden ways land her in an abusive reform school far from home. On mid-summer's eve she wishes to be anyplace but that dreadful school. A mysterious man from the Realm of Faerie rescues her and brings her to the Otherworld, only to reveal that she must be sacrificed, otherwise, the entire Otherworld civilization will perish.
- Oooh, faerie land! Mysterious man! Sacrificing a woman to save all the Otherworld! Who wouldn't want to read this book?
- I love anything where a girl tries to escape her bad home/school life, but it back fires in some way. Will she live to learn a lesson? Who knows
- The title is kind of a play on words, I'm sure. We normally don't think of darkness as "innocent", so it makes me wonder what it might mean.
- The cover is kind of cool. Looking both magical (the sparkles) and steampunk at the same time.
