This week I am “Waiting On”…
by Freya Robertson
Published: 29th October 2013
A dying tree, a desperate quest, a love story, a last stand.
Chonrad, Lord of Barle, comes to the fortified temple of Heartwood for the Congressus peace talks, which Heartwood’s holy knights have called in an attempt to stave off war in Anguis. But the Arbor, Heartwood’s holy tree, is failing, and because the land and its people are one, it is imperative the nations try to make peace.
After the Veriditas, or annual Greening Ceremony, the Congressus takes place. The talks do not go well and tempers are rising when an army of warriors emerges from the river. After a fierce battle, the Heartwood knights discover that the water warriors have stolen the Arbor’s heart. For the first time in history, its leaves begin to fall…
The knights divide into seven groups and begin an epic quest to retrieve the Arbor, and save the land.
I had an email about this book recently, and I have to admit that I kinda fell in love with the cover. I think it looks absolutely gorgeous, and then I read the blurb. I think it sounds like a really interesting book and I’ve added it to my to-be-read list.
So that is the book I am looking forward to this week. Please let me know in the comments if you’re looking forward to it too, and what book you’re looking for to this week.
