Waiting on Wednesday: Chantress

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

Chantress by Amy Butler Greenfield
Pub. Date: May 7, 2013

Goodreads says, "Shipwrecked on an island seven years ago, Lucy has been warned she must never sing, or disaster will strike. But on All Hallows Eve, Lucy hears tantalizing music in the air. When she sings it, she unlocks a terrible secret: She is a Chantress, a spell-singer, brought to the island not by shipwreck but by a desperate enchantment gone wrong. Her song lands her back in England — and in mortal peril, for the kingdom lies in the cruel grasp of a powerful Lord Protector and his mind-reading hunters, the Shadowgrims. The Protector has killed all Chantresses, for they alone can destroy the Shadowgrims. Only Lucy has survived. In terrible danger, Lucy takes shelter with Nat, a spy who turns her heart upside-down. Nat has been working with his fellow scholars of the Invisible College to overthrow the Lord Protector, and they have long hoped to find a living Chantress to help them. But Lucy is completely untrained, and Nat deeply distrusts her magic. If Lucy cannot master the songspells, how long can she even stay alive? Beguiling and lyrical, dangerous and romantic, Chantress will capture readers in a spell they won’t want to break."

Chantress sounds like an incredible fantasy and the early reviews for it are pretty good.  I read that Amy Butler Greenfield was inspired to write this book after visiting The Tower of London.  It definitely sounds like my kind of read!

  4. YES! I can't even tell you how excited I am for this one Christina! Dangerous and romantic is my kind of story. Plus, the cover is insanely pretty, and I'm comfortable enough with my shallowness to admit a pretty cover is enough to make me want to read a book:)
