“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:
All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater
From bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater, a gripping tale of darkness, miracles, and family!
Saints. Miracles. Family. Romance. Death. Redemption.
The book takes place in the 1960s in Bicho Raro, Colorado and follows the lives of three members of the Soria family—each of whom is searching for their own miracle. There’s Deatriz, who appears to lack feelings but wants to study her mind; Daniel, the “Saint” of Bicho Raro, a miracle working for everyone but himself; and Joaquin (a.k.a. Diablo Diablo), who runs a pirate radio station at night.
“The Soria family are saints as well, and the miracle they perform for pilgrims to Bicho Raro is as strange as most miracles are: They can make the darkness inside you visible. Once the pilgrims see their inner darkness face to dace, it’s up to them to perform another miracle on themselves: banishing the darkness for good. It can be a tricky business to vanquish your inner demons, even once you know what they are, but the Sorias are forbidden to help with this part. They’ve all been told that if a Soria interferes with the second miracle, it will bring out their own darkness, and a saint’s darkness, so the story goes, is a most potent and dangerous thing.”-Maggie Stiefvater, EW interview
Why I’m Waiting:
Maggie Stiefvater of course. She’s an auto-buy author for me! I have enjoyed all of her other works so I’m ready to get my hands on something new. This sounds very interesting for sure.
