Waiting On Wednesday(165): Spinning Starlight

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The book I´m waiting this week is

Spinning Starlight by R.C. Lewis
Release date:  October 6th 2015
Sixteen-year-old heiress and paparazzi darling Liddi Jantzen hates the spotlight. But as the only daughter in the most powerful tech family in the galaxy, it's hard to escape it. So when a group of men show up at her house uninvited, she assumes it's just the usual media-grubs. That is, until shots are fired.

Liddi escapes, only to be pulled into an interplanetary conspiracy more complex than she ever could have imagined. Her older brothers have been caught as well, trapped in the conduits between the planets. And when their captor implants a device in Liddi's vocal cords to monitor her speech, their lives are in her hands: One word and her brothers are dead.

Desperate to save her family from a desolate future, Liddi travels to another world, where she meets the one person who might have the skills to help her bring her eight brothers home-a handsome dignitary named Tiav. But without her voice, Liddi must use every bit of her strength and wit to convince Tiav that her mission is true. With the tenuous balance of the planets deeply intertwined with her brothers' survival, just how much is Liddi willing to sacrifice to bring them back?

Haunting and mesmerizing, this retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's The Wild Swans strings the heart of the classic with a stunning, imaginative world as a star-crossed family fights for survival in this companion to Stitching Snow.

Why I'm Waiting?
I haven´t read the original story, but I saw the anime when I was a kid and really liked it.

  1. AH! This sounds amazing! I haven't read Stitching Snow, but now I need to because I love this world! I've read other books that were retellings of The Wild Swans, but not the original story. Great pick!

  2. Nice! I saw this one on Netgalley but couldn't decide if I wanted to read it! My TBR Mountain of Doom is so daunting, I am hesitant to continuously add reads to it!

    Here's my WoW
