Waiting On Wednesday (25): Nightspell by Leah Cypess

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking The Spine spotlighting upcoming releases.

Nightspell by Leah Cypess
May 31, 2011

-A companion novel to Mistwood, which I absolutely loved.
-I just realized I've been spelling Leah's name wrong all this time. And I even did an interview with her. How embarrassing! It's "Cypess" not "Cypress." I've now corrected the spelling everywhere Leah is mentioned on my blog.

Check out my review of Mistwood here and my interview with Leah here!

Summary

A stand-alone companion novel to the much-acclaimed Mistwood. When Darri rides into Ghostland, a country where the living walk with the dead, she has only one goal: to rescue her younger sister Callie, who was sent to Ghostland as a hostage four years ago. But Callie has changed in those four years, and now has secrets of her own. In her quest to save her sister from herself, Darri will be forced to outmaneuver a handsome ghost prince, an ancient sorcerer, and a manipulative tribal warrior (who happens to be her brother). When Darri discovers the source of the spell that has kept the dead in Ghostland chained to this earth, she faces a decision that will force her to reexamine beliefs she has never before questioned - and lead her into the heart of a conspiracy that threatens the very balance of power between the living and the dead.

  12. Ooh, a standalone? I liked Mistwood okay, but I think I might be more open to reading a sequel like this. I had trouble writing "Cypess," too--my hands just wanted to typre Cypress, like the tree!
