Waiting on Wednesday (3)


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm waiting on:

Pegasus by Robin McKinley
Releases November 2, 2010
Because of a thousand-year-old alliance between humans and pegasi, Princess Sylviianel is ceremonially bound to Ebon, her own pegasus, on her twelfth birthday. The two species coexist peacefully, despite the language barriers separating them. Humans and pegasi both rely on specially-trained Speaker magicians as the only means of real communication.

But it's different for Sylvi and Ebon. They can understand each other. They quickly grow close--so close that their bond becomes a threat to the status quo--and possibly to the future safety of their two nations. 

Why I'm waiting on Pegasus:
The summary really caught my attention because the bonding between a Pegasus and a human was reminiscent of the bond between dragons in my favorite series, Dragonriders of Pern. I'm excited to see whether or not it'll be similar or completely opposite of it! And anyway, I'm a total fantasy nut - this book seems right up my alley!

What are YOU waiting on this Wednesday? :)


Also, while you guys are here, check out my current giveaway! It's open internationally and ends 10/30!

I loved reading Robin McKinley! Hmmm, I think his books are somewhere in the "Read" pile. Seriously, I like his retelling of classics

Cicely said...

Can't wait for this one! Robin McKinley = must read :D
Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I love this cover and so want to read it! What sucks is it's released when I'm on my book buying ban so it may just have to wait awhile on the TBR. I'll definitely be though for your review :)

Come by and see my WOW

The Crooked Bookshelf said...

I absolutely love the cover and the description looks really intriguing. Wizards, werewolves, vampires, fairies, angels, mermaids. I'm so looking forward to reading something different.

Jan von Harz said...

I have been waiting on this too. Loved the cover the first time I laid eyes on it and it's about pegasi and written by McKinley, what is not to want!

Vee said...

Ooh, I love the summary of this one. Sounds like a really rich fantasy *adds to wishlist* :)

This is what I'm waiting on this week!
