(so basically, if you haven't heard about this by now - you live under a blogger-rock.
i'm a tad late to the festivities due to the fact that we were cutting firewood today :)
It's here, you guys! The brand-spankin' new glossy that will adorn the front of Jennifer Freitag's much anticipated Plenilune! And it is glorious.
The fate of Plenilune hangs on the election of the Overlord, for which Rupert de la Mare and his brother are the only contenders, but when Rupert’s unwilling bride-to-be uncovers his plot to murder his brother, the conflict explodes into civil war.
To assure the minds of the lord-electors of Plenilune that he has some capacity for humanity, Rupert de la Mare has been asked to woo and win a lady before he can become the Overlord, and he will do it—even if he has to kidnap her.
En route to Naples to catch a suitor, Margaret Coventry was not expecting a suitor to catch her.
Baited, much?I am exceedingly interested to see how the 'planetary' part of the fiction plays out. (What is planetary fiction?) What new realms of imagination and scene await us beyond this cover? Only October 20th can tell us.
You can rest assured that I will be snapping the is up directly on the 20th (unless it's available for preorder, in which case it's already mine.) Few know this about me for I tend not to spread it about as it annoys and alarms some bookworms, but I do not like buying 'new' books. Too often I've been hopeful about well-reviewed books and spent hard earned money only to be bored, amazed (at what gets published these days), surprised (at what slips by editors), and downright disappointed (I'm looking at you, Divergent). In the end I'm basically paying and average of $20 for a Paperback Swap credit. *dying whale noise*
So I request a lot of books at my library, and buy only the ones that knock me off my feet. My bookcase may be small, but I will be buried with the ones that line it.
That beings said, Plenilune is a safe gamble for me to take. I have read and loved Freitag's first novel The Shadow Things, and I am beyond excited to see how her writing has matured since.
Still wavering? Here's what advance readers are saying, interspersed with pins from the author's pinboard:
I'm in love.
