Waiting on Wednesday (48)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. We hadn't done Waiting on Wednesday since early last year, but we recently decided it's about time to bring it back.  So here's my second ever WOW pick:
Anything that Richelle Mead writes is a must-read for me, so I'm really excited about Soundless. It's completely different from anything else she's written - there don't seem to be any vampires in it. I'm not terribly familiar with Chinese mythology, but I assume some kind of magic is involved in keeping sound away from the village. I'm curious about what kinds of creatures might show up. Also, it's a standalone and it seems like I rarely read anything that isn't part of a series. I'm just so intrigued by everything about this book. . .
Richelle Mead
Release: November 10
Goodreads Amazon
From Richelle Mead, the #1 internationally bestselling author of Vampire Academy and Bloodlines, comes a breathtaking new fantasy steeped in Chinese folklore.

For as long as Fei can remember, there has been no sound in her village, where rocky terrain and frequent avalanches prevent residents from self-sustaining. Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom.

When villagers begin to lose their sight, deliveries from the zipline shrink and many go hungry. Fei’s home, the people she loves, and her entire existence is plunged into crisis, under threat of darkness and starvation.

But soon Fei is awoken in the night by a searing noise, and sound becomes her weapon.

Richelle Mead takes readers on a triumphant journey from the peak of Fei’s jagged mountain village to the valley of Beiugo, where a startling truth and an unlikely romance will change her life forever...  

What book are you waiting on?


  1. I've seen this one elsewhere, and I get more interested every time I see the blurb.

    My WoW:

  2. I'm excited for Soundless too! I never finished reading the VA series but I love a good mythology/folklore! I hope we both enjoy this one!
