Waiting on Wednesday - Wayfarer

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine

Wayfarer by R.J. Anderson
Published by HarperTeen (HarperCollins)
On Sale Date: June 22, 2010

Summary from Publisher's Website: In a time of deadly crisis, Linden alone has the power to save her people.

The faeries of the Oak are in danger of extinction, and their only hope for survival rests in fifteen-year-old Linden. Armed with the last of her people's magic, she travels bravely into the modern human world. Along the way she makes a reluctant ally—a human boy named Timothy.

Soon Linden and Timothy discover a danger much worse than the Oakenfolk's loss of magic: a potent evil that threatens to enslave faeries and humans alike. In a fevered, desperate chase across the country, Tim and Linden must risk their lives to seek an ancient power before it's too late to save everyone they love.

R. J. Anderson has artfully crafted a world of stunning magic, thrilling adventure, and delicate beauty, where the key to the future is in an unexpected, forbidden friendship.


Another book that was published in the UK first!!  (It was published in January, with the name Rebel) I'm very excited for Wayfarer, it is the sequel to Faery Rebels: Spell Hunter, which I loved.  Spell Hunter along with Holly Black's Tithe really got me interested in reading more books about faeries and led me to read Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr and Bones of Faerie by Janni Lee Simner. 

June is shaping up to be a great book month!

What book are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  6. I didn't know this was a sequel. I hadn't heard of the first book. I will have to check these out. I liked The Iron King and some of the other fairy books I've tried. Great pick and I love the cover.
