Three Wishes Wednesday #11 (Faerie Edition)

Following the Faerietale theme this week I decided to do my Three Wishes on Faerie Books as well. Nothing more to say here they are...

1) Bitter Frost by Kailin Gow

Releases Date - June 1st 2010

Why- Duh, it's about faeries. The cover creeps me out though....*shivers* Has anyone seen the grudge it kinda remind of the chick from that movie...

Description - All her life, Breena had always dreamed about fairies as though she lived among them...beautiful fairies living among mortals and living in Feyland. In her dreams, he was always there the breathtakingly handsome but dangerous Winter Prince, Kian, who is her intended. When Breena turns sixteen, she begins seeing fairies and other creatures mortals don t see. Her best friend Logan, suddenly acts very protective. Then she sees Kian, who seems intent on finding her and carrying her off to Feyland. That's fine and all, but for the fact that humans rarely survive a trip to Feyland, a kiss from a fairy generally means death to the human unless that human has fairy blood in them or is very strong, and although Kian seemed to be her intended, he seems to hate her and wants her dead.

2) Spell Hunter by R.J Anderson

Release Date - 28th April 2009

Why- Besides the obvious, I have been wanting to read this one since the second book the second book came out last month ( Wayfarer ) So I have to pick this one up before reading the other one.

Description- Deep inside the great Oak lies a dying faery realm, bursting with secrets instead of magic. Long ago the faeries mysteriously lost their magic. Robbed of their powers, they have become selfish and dull-witted. Now their numbers are dwindling and their very survival is at stake. Only one young faery—Knife—is determined to find out where her people's magic has gone and try to get it back. Unlike her sisters, Knife is fierce and independent. She's not afraid of anything—not the vicious crows, the strict Faery Queen, or the fascinating humans living nearby. But when Knife disobeys the Faery Queen and befriends a human named Paul, her quest becomes more dangerous than she realizes. Can Knife trust Paul to help, or has she brought the faeries even closer to the brink of destruction?

3) Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

Release Date- 1st August 2010

Why- Just finished the first one can't wait to get my hands on the second. Besides I HEART the cover it's so pretty. I like it better than the first cover because it's kinda purpleish.

Description- Half Summer faery princess, half human, Meghan has never fit in anywhere. Deserted by the Winter prince she thought loved her, she is prisoner to the Winter faery queen. As war looms between Summer and Winter, Meghan knows that the real danger comes from the Iron Fey, iron-bound faeries that only she and her absent prince have seen. But no one believes her. Worse, Meghan's own fey powers have been cut off. She's alone in Faery with only her wits for help. Trusting anyone would be foolish. Trusting a seeming traitor could be deadly. But even as she grows a backbone of iron, Meghan can't help but hear the whispers of longing in her all-too-human heart.

Well, that's my Faerie Edition of Three Wishes Wednesday. What are you wishing for this week?

  1. Spell Hunters is so good! But I bought the UK version (KNIFE) because I liked the title and cover better.
