Look what came in the mail today! In person the ice/water bits are coated, giving the whole cover this pale icy shiny feel. I like it lots and lots! Maybe by bedtime I’ll stop staring at it, but I make no promises. 🙂
After her mother mysteriously disappears, sixteen-year-old Haley convinces her father to take her to Iceland, where her mother was last seen. There, amidst the ancient fissures and crevices of that volcanic island, Haley picks up a silver coin that entangles her in a spell cast by her ancestor Hallgerd, a sorceress intent on stealing another’s life to escape her own.
To break the spell, Haley sets off on an epic adventure with gorgeous Ari, a boy with a dangerous side who appoints himself her protector. They soon learn that Hallgerd’s spell and her mother’s disappearance are connected to a chain of events that could unleash terrifying powers and consume the world. Haley must find a way to contain the growing fires of the spell—and her growing attraction to Ari.
Bones of Faerie author Janni Lee Simner has cleverly woven medieval characters from the famous sagas of Iceland–full of fierce love and violent passions–into the twenty-first century with spellbinding results.
