~Waiting on Wednesday~ Soundless by Richelle Mead

                “Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.  Basically books that are not yet out that we are dying to get our hands on.  This week’s pick is:

Soundless by Richelle Mead
Out:  11/10

From Goodreads:
For as long as Fei can remember, there has been no sound in her village, where rocky terrain and frequent avalanches prevent residents from self-sustaining.  Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom.

When villagers begin to lose their sigh, deliveries from the zipline shrink and many go hungry.  Fei's home, the people she loves, and her entire existence is plunged into crisis, under threat of darkness and starvation.

But soon Fei is awoken in the night by a searing noise, and sound becomes her weapon.

Richelle Mead takes readers on a triumphant journey from the peak of Fei's jagged mountain village to the valley of Beiugo, where a startling truth and an unlikely romance will change her life forever…


Why I'm Waiting:

Richelle Mead.  Seriously, she's top of the Auto-Buy Author list.  Also it's a stand-alone fantasy book!  How many of those are there.  Plus it sounds amazing, steeped in Chinese folklore and this whole take on sound just seems interesting and I can't wait to see what happens.

    1. I'm beyond excited! I did the pre-order through one of the stores that was getting the special covers (and signed) so I'll get it a few days after but totally worth it!

  3. I may have to give this one a chance purely because it is a stand-alone. You don't see many of those in the YA world these days. Hope you love it!

    1. I know I was shocked to hear it was a stand alone just because all her other books are series!
