In My Mailbox (32)

This meme is hosted by The Story Siren.

Where has the month gone?? Twenty-seven days into the dystopia challenge and not one review have I posted. Awful and wonderful things have been happening one after the other and it's been like that all year!

Just the one book this week, until I can coax my housemate into going to the post office for me to pick up my packages. My long commute is not opening-hours friendly.

Wintercraft by Jenna Burtenshaw. This one sounds like it could have a dash of romance along with all the magic...

Ten years ago Kate Winters' parents were taken by the High Council's wardens to help with the country's war effort.

Now the wardens are back...and prisoners, including Kate's uncle Artemis, are taken south on the terrifying Night Train. Kate and her friend Edgar are hunted by a far more dangerous enemy. Silas Dane – the High Council's most feared man – recognises Kate as one of the Skilled; a rare group of people able to see through the veil between the living and the dead. His spirit was damaged by the High Council's experiments into the veil, and he's convinced that Kate can undo the damage and allow him to find peace.

The knowledge Kate needs lies within Wintercraft – a book thought to be hidden deep beneath the graveyard city of Fume. But the Night of Souls, when the veil between life and death is at its thinnest, is just days away and the High Council have their own sinister plans for Kate and Wintercraft...

    Jealous, jealous, jealous of you getting Wintercraft! My stupid bookstores are not stocking it and I can't afford to put anything on my credit card right now to order online. Boo! Enjoy!!

  6. Hey Rhiannon - was just thinking of you so thought I'd swing by and see!!!!!!!! Hope the words are flowing!!!!

  7. This sounds cool - it's exactly the sort of blurb that would've made me pick up a book immediately when I was growing up.
