Waiting on Wednesday

I decided to start a Waiting on Wednesday feature as some other book bloggers do. Though my blog isn't just about books, I am an avid reader/writer and do talk about books in most of my posts, so I thought it fit.

This week's Waiting on Wednesday is: Mistwood by Leah Cypress
Release date: April 27, 2010
Publisher: Greenwillow Books/HarperCollins

Synopsis from Goodreads:
The Shifter is an immortal creature bound by an ancient spell to protect the kings of Samorna. When the realm is peaceful, she retreats to the Mistwod.

But when she is needed she always comes.

Isabel remembers nothing. Nothing before the prince rode into her forest to take her back to the castle. Nothing about who she is supposed to be, or the powers she is supposed to have.

Prince Rokan needs Isabel to be his Shifter. He needs her ability to shift to animal form, to wind, to mist. He needs her lethal speed and superhuman strength. And he needs her loyalty--because without it, she may be his greatest threat.

Isabel knows that her prince is lying to her, but she can't help wanting to protect him from the dangers and intrigues of the court . . . until a deadly truth shatters the bond between them.

Now Isabel faces a choice that threatens her loyalty, her heart . . . and everything she thought she knew.

Official book trailer from Harper Teen:


  1. This book is soo good!! I just started it.

  2. It looks kind of like a mash up between Graceling, Hunger Games, and Poison Study. I think I'll love it!!

  3. Wow this sounds really good! I am really intrigued!

  4. I haven't heard much about this book yet, but the book summary sounds very intriguing. Adding Mistwood to my TBR list. :)
