Waiting on Wednesday: BRIGHT SMOKE, COLD FIRE

Jill over at Breaking the Spine started this and I believe that it's awesome" This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on.

Today's WoW is BRIGHT SMOKE, COLD FIRE by Rosamund Hodge.  I have been a fan of Rosamund's writing since I read Cruel Beauty. She has a way of spinning a tale that is mysterious as it is romantic and I cannot wait for this upcoming novel. Can we say that the cover alone is amazing and a bit creepy but I like it, regardless. 

Now that you know my WoW I would love to know about yours.

Sabriel meets Romeo and Juliet in this stunning and atmospheric novel about a doomed world and the only two people who can discover the secrets to saving it—from the author of Cruel Beauty and Crimson Bound.

When the mysterious fog of the Ruining crept over the world, the living died and the dead rose. Only the walled city of Viyara was left untouched.

The heirs of the city’s most powerful—and warring—families, Mahyanai Romeo and Juliet Catresou share a love deeper than duty, honor, even life itself. But the magic laid on Juliet at birth compels her to punish the enemies of her clan—and Romeo has just killed her cousin Tybalt. Which means he must die.

Paris Catresou has always wanted to serve his family by guarding Juliet. But when his ward tries to escape her fate, magic goes terribly wrong—killing her and leaving Paris bound to Romeo. If he wants to discover the truth of what happened, Paris must delve deep into the city, ally with his worst enemy...and perhaps turn against his own clan.

Mahyanai Runajo just wants to protect her city—but she’s the only one who believes it’s in peril. In her desperate hunt for information, she accidentally pulls Juliet from the mouth of death—and finds herself bound to the bitter, angry girl. Runajo quickly discovers Juliet might just be the lone person who can help her recover the secret to saving Viyara.

Both pairs will find friendship where they least expect it. Both will find that Viyara holds more secrets and dangers than anyone ever expected. And outside the walls, death is waiting....
