Waiting on Wednesday: Sorrow's Knot

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. As always, there are some amazing upcoming books, but this week I'm particularly excited for...

Title: Sorrow's Knot
Author: Erin Bow (Twitter)
Publisher: Arthur A. Levine
Publish Date: October 29, 2013
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Pages: 368

In the world of Sorrow’s Knot, the dead do not rest easy. Every patch of shadow might be home to something hungry and nearly invisible, something deadly. The dead can only be repelled or destroyed with magically knotted cords and yarns. The women who tie these knots are called binders.

Otter is the daughter of Willow, a binder of great power. She’s a proud and privileged girl who takes it for granted that she will be a binder some day herself. But when Willow’s power begins to turn inward and tear her apart, Otter finds herself trapped with a responsibility she’s not ready for, and a power she no longer wants.
Okay, first and foremost...her name is Otter. Alright, perhaps that's not foremost, but let's be honest; that's awesome! I love how utterly original this one sounds, and I have a morbid fascination with zombie and the undead, so the concept of Sorrow's Knot one speaks to me. If we get what the premise offers, we might just have an incredible MC, a powerful journey of self-discovery and, perhaps, wonderful writing. Here's hoping! What do you think, and what are you waiting on this week?
