It’s Day #2 of our week-long celebration & a special guest is here to share a gorgeous, wintry YA fantasy!
This latest Day’s YA installment comes to you from Nathalie DeFelice, Children’s Librarian at Springdale Library.
“Honor your oath, destroy your country.”
Wren Southerland is the most talented healer in the Queen’s Guard, but her recklessness has placed her in trouble with her supervisors one too many times. She receives a letter from a reclusive lord that seems to be the escape she’d been waiting for. Wren is being asked to help find a cure to a mysterious illness that is ravaging the estate, and is currently plaguing one of the servants. However, upon her arrival at Colwick Hall, Wren discovers her patient is none other than Hal Cavendish…a sworn enemy of her kingdom.
The snowy mountains make it difficult to leave the estate, but soon, Wren and Hal discover a sinister plot that could destroy everything they’ve worked for. Even more dangerous, their burgeoning romance threatens to doom them both of their kingdoms.
This thrilling gothic romance will send shivers down your spine as you navigate the ominous halls of the estate which is full of forbidden rooms, bodiless sounds, and a chilling mystery that’s far beyond simple murder. Wren and Hal share a magnetic energy readers will be eager to devour. This exquisite story has incredible world building, and features a kind-hearted heroine determined to do what is right even if that path is difficult. You’ll long for more of this story long after it’s over, and I promise that this is a story you’ll definitely want to read during a nice stormy night.
