Published November 10th 2015 | Razorbill | Add to Goodreads
From Richelle Mead, the #1 internationally bestselling author of Vampire Academy and Bloodlines, comes a breathtaking new fantasy steeped in Chinese folklore.
For as long as Fei can remember, there has been no sound in her village, where rocky terrain and frequent avalanches prevent residents from self-sustaining. Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom.
When villagers begin to lose their sight, deliveries from the zipline shrink and many go hungry. Fei’s home, the people she loves, and her entire existence is plunged into crisis, under threat of darkness and starvation.
But soon Fei is awoken in the night by a searing noise, and sound becomes her weapon.
Richelle Mead takes readers on a triumphant journey from the peak of Fei’s jagged mountain village to the valley of Beiugo, where a startling truth and an unlikely romance will change her life forever…
Why I’m Waiting:
Richelle Mead is one of my go-to authors particularly for her AGE OF X series, the third offering of which was supposed to be published this year however there’s no sign of it! *sobs* In any event, this novel would be one I’d be looking forward to for sure but now it’s even more anticipated as it’ll hopefully soften the blow! Plus that cover!!!
