Shadowfell (Shadowfell Trilogy, #1)





Goodreads.com summary:

Its name is spoken only in whispers, if the people of Alban dare to speak it at all: Shadowfell. The training ground for rebels seeking to free their land from the grip of the tyrannical king is so shrouded in mystery that most believe it to be a myth.

But for Neryn, Shadowfell's existence is her only hope. She is penniless, orphaned, and utterly alone - and concealing a treacherous magical power that will warrant her immediate enslavement should it be revealed. She finds hope of allies in the Good Folk, fey beings whom she must pretend she cannot see and who taunt her with chatter of prophecies and tests, and in a striking, mysterious stranger, who saves her from certain death but whose motives remain unclear. She knows she should not trust anyone with her plans, but something within her longs to confide in him.

Will Neryn be forced to make the dangerous journey alone? She must reach Shadowfell, not only to avenge her family and salvage her own life, but to rescue Alban itself.

This first novel in a new trilogy from enchanting fantasy author Juliet Marillier is a captivating tale of peril, courage, romance, and survival


Release date:  September 11, 2012

Why I am excited:  This one sounds kind of familiar and slightly complicated, but I think it's interesting.  Penniless orphans are always great main characters because they have nothing left to lose usually so if getting to Shadowfell is her last hope then she'll probably be willing to do anything for it.  There's faeries involved which is also fun.  I wonder what time period it is.  Also, Neryn could be a potential love interest?  And it's a trilogy.  Sounds good to me.

 What do you think? What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
