The Wizard’s Promise (The Hannah Duology #1) by Cassandra Rose Clarke
Release Date: May 6, 2014
All Hanna Euli wants is to become a proper witch – but unfortunately, she’s stuck as an apprentice to a grumpy fisherman. When their boat gets caught up in a mysterious storm and blown wildly off course, Hanna finds herself further away from home than she’s ever been before.
As she tries to get back, she learns there may be more to her apprentice master than she realized, especially when a mysterious, beautiful, and very non-human boy begins following her through the ocean, claiming that he needs Hanna’s help. (summary from goodreads)
Continuing my love of Strange Chemistry and my adoration of Cassandra Rose Clarke’s writing, this week I’m waiting on THE WIZARD’S PROMISE. In the author’s first series, The Assassin’s Curse (THE ASSASSIN’S CURSE, THE PIRATE’S WISH), I liked her worldbuilding, strong characters, and quirky stories. The summary for her new book tells me I’m going to get a lot more of everything I enjoyed in her previous books.
Plus, that cover! Can I have some antlers like the scarecrow-ish dude? I would rock a pair of antlers.
Okay, aside from the antlers, I just love how this cover is so different from a lot of what you see in YA books.
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.
