I’m freaking out right now – Juliet Marillier is publishing Shadowfell ( a new series) this year!!!
Shadowfell by Juliet Marillier
Title & Author: Shadowfell by Juliet Marillier
Genre: YA- Fantasy
Publication Date: November 2012
Description: “Sixteen-year-old Neryn is alone in the land of Alban, where the oppressive king has ordered anyone with magical strengths captured and brought before him. Eager to hide her own canny skill–a uniquely powerful ability to communicate with the fairy-like Good Folk–Neryn sets out for the legendary Shadowfell, a home and training ground for a secret rebel group determined to overthrow the evil King Keldec.
During her dangerous journey, she receives aid from the Good Folk, who tell her she must pass a series of tests in order to recognize her full potential. She also finds help from a handsome young man, Flint, who rescues her from certain death–but whose motives in doing so remain unclear. Neryn struggles to trust her only allies. They both hint that she alone may be the key to Alban’s release from Keldec’s rule. Homeless, unsure of who to trust, and trapped in an empire determined to crush her, Neryn must make it to Shadowfell not only to save herself, but to save Alban.”
Why I’m Stoked: I have read ALL of Juliet Marillier’s books and have loved each of them. I am so excited to see that Shadowfell is a crossover YA/Fantasy book, and I think the premise sounds awesome. It has everything: excitement, adventure, romance. I’m so sold on this that it’s ridiculous!
What YA/Fantasy books like Shadowfell are you waiting on?
