On My Wishlist (13)

On My Wishlist is a weekly meme hosted by Book Chick City that allows us to share the books we haven't bought yet but are waiting to be bought and devoured.

Title: Heart's Blood (Whistling Tor #1)
Author: Juliet Marillier
Genre: Fantasy
Published: October 2, 2009

Anluan has been crippled since childhood, part of a curse that has besieged his family and his home of Whistling Tor. But when the young scribe Caitrin is retained to sort through family documents, she brings about unexpected changes in the household, casting a hopeful light against the despairing shadows.

But to truly free Anluan’s burdened soul, Caitrin must unravel the web of sorcery woven by his ancestors before it claims his life—and their love…

Title: Dreamhunter (Dreamhunter Duet #1)
Author: Elizabeth Knox
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Published: This edition: February 21, 2006 ; First published in 2005

Laura comes from a world similar to our own except for one difference: It is next to the Place, an unfathomable land that fosters dreams of every kind and is inaccessible to all but a select few, the dreamhunters. These are individuals with the ability to catch larger-than-life dreams and relay them to audiences in the magnificent dream palace. People travel from all around to experience the benefits of the hunters’ unique visions.

Now, fifteen-year-old Laura and her cousin Rose, daughters of dreamhunters, are old enough to find out if they qualify to enter the Place. But nothing can prepare them for what they are about to discover. In the midst of a fascinating landscape, Laura’s dreamy childhood is ending, and a nightmare is beginning.

► Both of these sound fabulous. What's on YOUR wishlist? Tell/link me!

I love the premise for Heart's Blood and I love the cover for Dreamhunter. I borrowed that on from the library but I ran out of time before I could read it. The problem with having so many books to review.

Kathy Martin said...

Interesting choices! I have a whole bunch of books by Marillier buried in my TBR mountain and have never read one. The covers and blurbs all sound good but time is limited.

I hope they move from your wishlist to your TBR pile soon. Happy reading!

O the second one sounds interesting. I've never heard of it.

Oh, I love Dreamhunter and its sequel (and anything else by Elizabeth Knox, actually). Gorgeous book.

Hearts blood looks good :)

I had no idea that Marillier had a new book. Sounds really great. Nice list.
