Waiting on Wednesday: Mortal Fire

Because we all have something we're waiting for.

Mortal Fire
Author: Elizabeth Knox
Series: ---
Release Date: 11 June 2013

Sixteen-year-old Canny Mochrie's vacation takes a turn when she stumbles upon a mysterious and enchanting valley, occupied almost entirely by children who can perform a special type of magic that tells things how to be stronger and better than they already are. As Canny studies the magic more carefully, she realizes that she not only understands it--she can perform the magic, too, so well that it feels like it has always been a part of her. With the help of an alluring seventeen-year-old boy who is held hostage by a spell that is now more powerful than the people who first placed it, Canny figures out the secrets of this valley and of her own past.

This is hitting on all of my favorite things - it's a fantasy (albeit a light fantasy); it looks like it's a stand alone; we have magic!; Canny the one who has to rescue a cutie instead of playing the damsel in distress -- it looks great all around.

And that cover! Oh, that cover!

What do you guys think?

  6. This plot summary is hitting all the right buttons for me too especially standalone! I feel like it can be really hard to find a non-contemporary standalone so I always want to cheer when I do.
