[Waiting on Wednesday] Crimson Bound
O Waiting on Wednesday é um blog hop semanal, da autoria do Breaking the Spine, em que se posta sobre livros pelos quais se espera—e desespera.
E esta semana no WOW, o novo livro da Rosamund Hodge, a autora de Cruel Beauty, que li no ano passado e gostei tanto. Cruel Beauty é um retelling super criativo e original de Beauty and the Beast, e por isso não espero menos do Crimson Bound que é um retelling do Red Riding Hood. Tão animada!
Título: Crimson Bound Autor: Rosamund Hodge Editora: Balzer & Bray Páginas: 448 Publicação: 05 Maio, 2015 Formato: Hardback ISBN: 9780062224767 Idioma: Inglês
Sinopse: When Rachelle was fifteen she was good—apprenticed to her aunt and in training to protect her village from dark magic. But she was also reckless—straying from the forest path in search of a way to free her world from the threat of eternal darkness. After an illicit meeting goes dreadfully wrong, Rachelle is forced to make a terrible choice that binds her to the very evil she had hoped to defeat.
Three years later, Rachelle has given her life to serving the realm, fighting deadly creatures in a vain effort to atone. When the king orders her to guard his son Armand—the man she hates most–Rachelle forces Armand to help her hunt for the legendary sword that might save their world. Together, they navigate the opulent world of the courtly elite, where beauty and power reign and no one can be trusted. And as the two become unexpected allies, they discover far-reaching conspiracies, hidden magic… and a love that may be their undoing. Within a palace built on unbelievable wealth and dangerous secrets, can Rachelle discover the truth and stop the fall of endless night?
