- “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…
Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis
to be published on October 14, 2014 by Hyperion
fantasy | retellings
Princess Snow is missing.
Essie has grown used to being cold. Temperatures on the planet Thanda are always sub-zero, and she fills her days with coding and repairs for the seven loyal drones that run the local mines.
When a mysterious young man named Dane crash-lands near her home, Essie agrees to help the pilot repair his ship. But soon she realizes that Dane’s arrival was far from accidental, and she’s pulled into the heart of a war she’s risked everything to avoid. With the galaxy’s future—and her own—in jeopardy, Essie must choose who to trust in a fiery fight for survival.
1. I adore retellings. Although I’m not a huge fan of Snow White, I think that this one will give it a good twist and will pique my interest. It’s kind of like Snow White in a futuristic world–of course I’m in!
2. The cover is gorgeous. I love how the apple is made out of mechanical-looking things, as well as how the author’s name was placed. I would’ve liked it better, though, if a different text effect was used on the cover and if the apple wasn’t purple, but maybe the color has a significance to the story. In that case, I have no problem with it!
What are you waiting on this week?
