Breaking the Spine and features books that we just can't wait to get our hands on!
My WoW pick this week is:
The Kingdom of Little Wounds by Susann Cokal
seamstress and a royal nursemaid find themselves at the center of an
epic power struggle in this stunning young-adult debut.
the eve of Princess Sophia’s wedding, the Scandinavian city of
Skyggehavn prepares to fete the occasion with a sumptuous display of
riches: brocade and satin and jewels, feasts of sugar fruit and sweet
spiced wine. Yet beneath the veneer of celebration, a shiver of darkness
creeps through the palace halls. A mysterious illness plagues the royal
family, threatening the lives of the throne’s heirs, and a courtier’s
wolfish hunger for the king’s favors sets a devious plot in motion.
in the palace at Skyggehavn, things are seldom as they seem — and when a
single errant prick of a needle sets off a series of events that will
alter the course of history, the fates of seamstress Ava Bingen and mute
nursemaid Midi Sorte become irrevocably intertwined with that of mad
Queen Isabel. As they navigate a tangled web of palace intrigue,
power-lust, and deception, Ava and Midi must carve out their own
survival any way they can."
First, I will let you take a moment to drink in that amazing cover.
Second, how awesome is that title?!
And third, a power struggle set against the historical backdrop of a Scandinavian city, complete with a seamstress, a mute nursemaid and a mad queen? YES PLEASE.
