Can’t Wait Wednesday – SISTERS OF SHADOW AND LIGHT by Sara B. Larson

 

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is SISTERS OF SHADOW AND LIGHT by Sara B. Larson. I’m a sucker for a story about sisterly love and I also like that this book sounds like it may have a bit of a Strange the Dreamer vibe.

 

SISTERS OF SHADOW AND LIGHT by Sara B. Larson

Publication Date:  November 5, 2019

 

From Goodreads:

From the acclaimed author of DEFY, Sara B. Larson, SISTERS OF SHADOW AND LIGHT is a timeless and fantastical tale of sisterly love and powerful magic

“The night my sister was born, the stars died and were reborn in her eyes…”.

Zuhra and Inara have grown up in the Citadel of the Paladins, an abandoned fortress where legendary, magical warriors once lived before disappearing from the world―including their Paladin father the night Inara was born.

On that same night, a massive, magical hedge grew and imprisoned them within the citadel. Inara inherited their father’s Paladin power; her eyes glow blue and she is able to make plants grow at unbelievable rates, but she has been trapped in her own mind because of a “roar” that drowns everything else out―leaving Zuhra virtually alone with their emotionally broken human mother.

For fifteen years they have lived, trapped in the citadel, with little contact from the outside world…until the day a stranger passes through the hedge, and everything changes.

    This sounds fascinating. Magic and sisters…who could ask for more 🙂 Thanks for sharing, Suzanne. I don’t have a wait list, I’m slogging through my TBR. I shouldn’t say slog because it does feel good to finally read some titles I’ve been wanting to for years. I’ll wait for your review of this one!
