This is a feature/meme where I choose a book each week leading up to Christmas and say why it's made it onto my wishlist. I'd love to see what books everyone else is hoping to get (maybe I'll add a few of them to my own list!) I'll be posting my pick each Monday, but feel free to link up and visit other people's posts all through the week. (This meme is from A Tapestry of Words.)
My choice is . . . SHADOW HEIR!
Shadow Heir -- Richelle Mead (Dark Swan, #4)
#1 New York Times bestselling author Richelle Mead returns to the Otherworld, a mystic land inextricably linked to our own--and balanced precariously on one woman's desperate courage...
Shaman-for-hire Eugenie Markham strives to keep the mortal realm safe from trespassing entities. But as the Thorn Land's prophecy-haunted queen, there's no refuge for her and her soon-to-be-born-children when a mysterious blight begins to devastate the Otherworld...
The spell-driven source of the blight isn't the only challenge to Eugenie's instincts. Fairy king Dorian is sacrificing everything to help, but Eugenie can't trust the synergy drawing them back together. The uneasy truce between her and her shape shifter ex-lover Kiyo is endangered by secrets he can't--or won't--reveal. And as a formidable force rises to also threaten the human world, Eugenie must use her own cursed fate as a weapon--and risk the ultimate sacrifice.
Why I Chose This Book:
I've been a fan of Richelle Mead since . . . well, to be honest, since SHADOW KISS came out, the third book in her best selling Vampire Academy series that I adore. I read all her Succubus books, cried when they ended, read all her VA books, cried when they ended, started Bloodlines, and read through the Dark Swan series with no trouble. This is the last Dark Swan book, and I'm afraid I may cry when this is over as well.
