What book am I eagerly anticipating at this moment? Why it just so happens to be…
An Inheritance of Ashes
by Leah Bobet
Releases October 6th, 2015 from Clarion Books
The strange war down south—with its rumors of gods and monsters—is over. And while sixteen-year-old Hallie and her sister wait to see who will return from the distant battlefield, they struggle to maintain their family farm.
When Hallie hires a veteran to help them, the war comes home in ways no one could have imagined, and soon Hallie is taking dangerous risks—and keeping desperate secrets. But even as she slowly learns more about the war and the men who fought it, ugly truths about Hallie’s own family are emerging. And while monsters and armies are converging on the small farm, the greatest threat to her home may be Hallie herself.
A strange war. Gods and monsters. I’m sold. This sounds very dark and potentially sad. I can kind of see where the story might go already, but I don’t care. I like the atmosphere just the synopsis is giving off. I’m not entirely sure if this is a book I’ll end up loving, but I’m very curious about it, think it’s got an interesting premise, and the cover has me completely hooked. Because I like pretty things and this cover is very pretty. I’m just a bowerbird at heart!
