Dying to Read (50)- WINTERSPELL by Claire Legrand


Hey y’all thanks for stopping by to see my Dying to Read post and of course as always I have to give credit to the lovely Jill over at Breaking the Spine for the Waiting on Wednesday Meme!

This week the book I’m dying to read is WINTERSPELL by Claire Legrand! I read this synopsis and was like WOW! I love retellings and I've never read a NUTCRACKER one before! I love that ballet so I knew I had to add this to my TBR!!


WINTERSPELL
Claire Legrand
Release Date: September 30, 2014
Hardcover: 464 pages
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers 
ISBN: 978-1442465985

The clock chimes midnight, a curse breaks, and a girl meets a prince . . . but what follows is not all sweetness and sugarplums.

New York City, 1899. Clara Stole, the mayor's ever-proper daughter, leads a double life. Since her mother's murder, she has secretly trained in self-defense with the mysterious Drosselmeyer.

Then, on Christmas Eve, disaster strikes.

Her home is destroyed, her father abducted--by beings distinctly not human. To find him, Clara journeys to the war-ravaged land of Cane. Her only companion is the dethroned prince Nicholas, bound by a wicked curse. If they're to survive, Clara has no choice but to trust him, but his haunted eyes burn with secrets--and a need she can't define. With the dangerous, seductive faery queen Anise hunting them, Clara soon realizes she won't leave Cane unscathed--if she leaves at all.

Inspired by The Nutcracker, Winterspell is a dark, timeless fairy tale about love and war, longing and loneliness, and a girl who must learn to live without fear.

So what do you think? Will you be adding this to your pile? What are you dying to read this week?

  2. I love ballet although I feel bad for their feet. I have to admit I don't think I have actually ever watched The Nutcracker. I might have to since this books sounds very good and exciting and if it was based off that I might need to check it out.

    My WOW
