[Waiting On Wednesday] Cart and Cwidder & Drowned Ammet
O Waiting On Wednesday é uma rubrica semanal, da autoria do Breaking the Spine, na qual se posta sobre o lançamento dos livros mais aguardados.
E esta semana no WOW, a mais recente reedição dos dois primeiros volumes do Dalemark Quartet de Diana Wynne Jones.
Já há muito que queria começar a ler esta série mas os livros andavam todos desaparecidos, até que finalmente chegou a vez deles serem reeditados pela vaga de reedições dos livros da DWJ da HarperCollins. Estes dois primeiros do quarteto têm data de publicação prevista para Novembro deste ano e os outros dois para Janeiro de 2017.
Sinopse: For centuries, Dalemark has been a land divided by the warring earldoms of the North and South. Now, with the help of the mysterious gods of Dalemark, four extraordinary young people must join forces to reunify their beloved home. When twelve-year-old Moril’s father is murdered by soldiers, Moril inherits his ancient cwidder – a musical instrument with a mysterious past. As Moril and his siblings embark on a dangerous journey to escape the evil forces around them, he gradually learns how to channel the cwidder’s strange and powerful magic. But is it enough to protect those he loves from the looming threat of war?
