Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases.

This week I'm waiting on...
By McCormick Templeman
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Release Date: February 11, 2014

Death hasn't visited Rowan Rose since it took her mother when Rowan was only a little girl. But that changes one bleak morning, when five horses and their riders thunder into her village and through the forest, disappearing into the hills. Days later, the riders' bodies are found, and though no one can say for certain what happened in their final hours, their remains prove that whatever it was must have been brutal.

Rowan's village was once a tranquil place, but now things have changed. Something has followed the path those riders made and has come down from the hills, through the forest, and into the village. Beast or man, it has brought death to Rowan's door once again.

Only this time, its appetite is insatiable.


I'm weak to fairy tale retellings, especially darker ones, and the more I hear about this book the more excited I get. Plus this cover is creepy/gorgeous, and I like the way the red nail polish on the girl's fingers invokes the image of the poison apple. 

I'm excited for many books this winter, but this is one I'll be cracking open as soon as I'm able to get my hands on a copy.

I've not heard about this book. A fairy tale retelling well for sure I'll add it to my TBR =).
Thanks for stopping by.

Look at that gorgeous cover! I am a sucker for beautiful covers, I have to admit. This is the first time I've seen this book but I definitely am adding it to my TBR list, right now! It sounds awesome.
