Waiting on Wednesday

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

By Juliet Marillier

Maeve, daughter of Lord Sean of Sevenwaters, was badly burned as a child and carries the legacy of that fire in her crippled hands. After ten years she’s returning home as a courageous, forthright woman with a special gift for taming difficult animals. But while her body’s scars have healed, her spirit remains fragile, as she fears the shadows of her past.

Sevenwaters is in turmoil. The fey prince Mac Dara has become desperate to see his only son, who is married to Maeve’s sister, return to the Otherworld. To force Lord Sean’s hand, Mac Dara has caused a party of innocent travelers on the Sevenwaters border to vanish.

When Maeve finds one of the missing travelers murdered in the woods, she and her brother Finbar embark on a journey that may bring about the end of Mac Dara’s reign — or lead to a hideous death. But if she is successful, Maeve may open a door to a future she has not dared to believe possible...

First, I promise that next week my "Waiting on Wednesday" will NOT be a Juliet Marillier book. I couldn't help myself, when the cover and blurb were revealed this week I could hardly contain my excitement. This is presumably the last installment in The Sevenwaters series (that's what Juliet said after book three, let's hope she is wrong again) and I will definitely be re-reading the entire series for the millionth time before reading this one. I LOVED the story of Mac Dara and I am so excited to hear more about the entire family, though I may cry a little when its over.
