waiting on wednesday: foxheart

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted over at Breaking the Spine.

This week's pick:

Foxheart by Claire Legrand

release date: October 4 by Greenwillow

Orphan. Thief. Witch.

Twelve-year-old Quicksilver dreams of becoming the greatest thief in the Star Lands. With her faithful dog and partner-in-crime Fox, she’s well on her way—even if that constantly lands them both in trouble. It’s a lonesome life, sleeping on rooftops and stealing food for dinner, but Quicksilver doesn’t mind. When you’re alone, no one can hurt you. Or abandon you.

But the seemingly peaceful Star Lands are full of danger. Witches still exist—although the powerful Wolf King and his seven wolves have been hunting them for years. Thankfully, his bloody work is almost complete. Soon the Star Lands will be safe, free of the witches and their dark magic.

Then one day a strange old woman and her scruffy dog arrive in Quicksilver’s town and perform extraordinary magic. Real magic—forbidden and dangerous. Magic Quicksilver is desperate to learn. With magic like that, she could steal anything her heart desires. She could even find her parents.

But the old woman is not what she seems, and soon Quicksilver has to decide—will she stay at home and remain a thief? Or will she embark upon the adventure of a lifetime and become a legend?

I read Claire Legrand's middle grade, Some Kind of Happiness, earlier this year, and I was totally blown away by it! When I read about this one, I put it on my TBR so fast, because I cannot wait to see what else Legrand comes up with! 

What are you waiting on this week?

  3. I don't usually read too much MG, but I'm sure as my daughter gets older I'll read more in that age range. Have a great week!
