“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m waiting on Blood and Salt by Kim Liggett
* I am extremely excited for this book. It’s a romantic horror and it sounds super creepy and I’ve been really into those kinds of books lately. It’s described as Romeo and Juliet meets Children of the Corn, which sounds really interesting. The early reviews I’ve already seen have been amazing and I’m really looking forward to this book.
Title: Blood and Salt
Author: Kim Liggett
Published by: G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books For Young Readers; September 22, 2015
“When you fall in love, you will carve out your heart and throw it into the deepest ocean. You will be all in—blood and salt.”
These are the last words Ash Larkin hears before her mother returns to the spiritual commune she escaped long ago. But when Ash follows her to Quivira, Kansas, something sinister and ancient waits among the rustling cornstalks of this village lost to time.
Ash is plagued by memories of her ancestor, Katia, which harken back to the town’s history of unrequited love and murder, alchemy and immortality. Charming traditions soon give way to a string of gruesome deaths, and Ash feels drawn to Dane, a forbidden boy with secrets of his own.
As the community prepares for a ceremony five hundred years in the making, Ash must fight not only to save her mother, but herself—and discover the truth about Quivira before it’s too late. Before she’s all in—blood and salt.
