"Waiting On" Wednesday #14: Silver in the Blood by Jessica Day George
I am a sucker for Romanian lore. While I do not come from a family of travelers, I moved 22 times before the age of 16 and many times people would ask if we were. From there, I just grew to love the myths and stories from this culture. So yeah... SILVER IN THE BLOOD combines that culture with the supernatural. It's going to be sooooo good!
Thank heavens, I do not have to wait much longer. So looking forward to reading this book. Doesn't it look amazing?! Such a beautiful cover. Seriously, all you book cover designers out there deserve mucho luv!
Society girls from New York City circa 1890, Dacia and Lou never desired to know more about their lineage, instead preferring to gossip about the mysterious Romanian family that they barely knew. But upon turning seventeen, the girls must return to their homeland to meet their relatives, find proper husbands, and—most terrifyingly—learn the deep family secrets of The Claw, The Wing, and The Smoke. The Florescus, after all, are shape-shifters, and it is time for Dacia and Lou to fulfill the prophecy that demands their acceptance of this fate . . . or fight against this cruel inheritance with all their might.
With a gorgeous Romanian setting, stunning Parisian gowns, and dark brooding young men, readers will be swept up by this epic adventure of two girls in a battle for their lives.
