The blurb, via Robin McKinley’s website:
Because of a thousand-year-old alliance between humans and pegasi, Princess Sylviianel is ceremonially bound to Ebon, her own pegasus, on her twelfth birthday. The two species coexist peacefully, despite the language barriers separating them. Humans and pegasi both rely on specially-trained Speaker magicians as the only means of real communication.
But it’s different for Sylvi and Ebon. They can understand each other. They quickly grow close—so close that their bond becomes a threat to the status quo—and possibly to the future safety of their two nations.
Pegasus comes out in November 2010. (I was alerted to this one by The Book Smugglers, a hilarious book reviewing site that you should check out if you don’t already!)
WWW Wednesdays are hosted by MizB at Should be Reading. To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…
* What are you currently reading?
* What did you recently finish reading?
* What do you think you’ll read next?
What are you currently reading? Nearly done with The Forever War, by Joe Haldeman, which I described in my Teaser Tuesday yesterday. It takes the weariness, the disillusionment, and the isolation felt by many Vietnam vets and looks at it through a sci-fi lens. An unexpectedly powerful and moving book.
What did you recently finish reading? Good Omens, by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. It was my first read EVER of Pratchett’s and I have to say, I really enjoyed it. (I’ve already read some of Gaiman’s work.)
What do you think you’ll read next? Decisions, decisions! I’m going on a trip this weekend, so I need to pull something I already have on my shelves to take with me. I’m thinking Fingersmith, by Sarah Waters.
