Waiting on Wednesday (17)


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we showcase upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.

Vessel
by Sarah Beth Durst
Release Date: September 11, 2012


Goodreads Synopsis:

In a desert world of sandstorms and sand-wolves, a teen girl must defy the gods to save her tribe in this mystical, atmospheric tale from the author of Drink, Slay, Love."Liyana has trained her entire life to be the vessel of a goddess. The goddess will inhabit Liyana's body and use magic to bring rain to the desert. But Liyana's goddess never comes. Abandoned by her angry tribe, Liyana expects to die in the desert. Until a boy walks out of the dust in search of her.

Korbyn is a god inside his vessel, and a trickster god at that. He tells Liyana that five other gods are missing, and they set off across the desert in search of the other vessels. For the desert tribes cannot survive without the magic of their gods. But the journey is dangerous, even with a god's help. And not everyone is willing to believe the trickster god's tale.

The closer she grows to Korbyn, the less Liyana wants to disappear to make way for her goddess. But she has no choice: She must die for her tribe to live. Unless a trickster god can help her to trick fate--or a human girl can muster some magic of her own.

Why I'm waiting:

*Ogles at cover*
The first thing that caught my eye was that absolutely stunning cover. And then the synopsis came and I was instantly hooked. Sand-wolves, lost goddesses, trickster gods and journeys? 
*happy dance*
I'm so incredibly psyched. While I haven't read her first book, I have heard some good things about it so I'm interested to see where she takes this one. This seems like a magical fantasy that I can't wait to get my greedy hands on ;)


So what are y'all waiting on this fine Wednesday? Be sure to leave a comment and let me know! 


All the best

  3. Yes, the cover is really lovely. I like that there's not just another pretty Caucasian girl on the cover. I'm not too sure about the synopsis, but I may just give it a try regardless, because of how unique it sounds. Great pick! :-)
