Can’t Wait Wednesday #42: Strange Grace by Tessa Gratton

April 11, 2018 Uncategorized 38

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings to spotlight
and talk about the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read.
Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on
Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.  I haven’t done this since February, I’ve had a pretty busy blog schedule, plus wasn’t sure of any I wanted to share. But last week I found this one by a favorite author of mine, Tessa Gratton.  A new YA book.  You can read my review of her recent fantasy book, The Queens of Innis Lear HERE.  Anyway, here is the blurb from Goodreads:

Once, a witch made a pact with a devil. The legend says they loved each other, but can the story be trusted at all? Find out in this lush, atmospheric fantasy novel that entwines love, lies, and sacrifice.

Long ago, a village made a bargain with the devil: to ensure their prosperity, when the Slaughter Moon rises, the village must sacrifice a young man into the depths of the Devil’s Forest.

Only this year, the Slaughter Moon has risen early.

Bound by duty, secrets, and the love they share for one another, Mairwen, a spirited witch; Rhun, the expected saint; and Arthur, a restless outcast, will each have a role to play as the devil demands a body to fill the bargain. But the devil these friends find is not the one they expect, and the lies they uncover will turn their town—and their hearts—inside out. 

How does this one sound to you?  Have you read anything by this author?  What book or books are you excited for this week?

    I haven't read anything by this author before. I've been getting away from so much YA lately, so not much is on my radar right now. I always have a hard time with fantasy because I feel like my mind wanders and I can't figure out what's going on.
    I hope you enjoy reading this, Lisa!

      Fantasy is something I have to have time to sit and read. It's not something I can pick up whenever I have a few minutes and remember what's going on. So I understand what you're saying. Thanks for stopping by!

      You should try her original series, Blood Magic I think it's called. If you haven't read them yet, they fit that perfectly! Thanks for stopping by!
