Waiting On Wednesday (13)

Time for the"Waiting On Wednesday" weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

Waiting on Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Pegasus
by Robin McKinley
To be Published: November 2, 2010

Description (via Goodreads): A gorgeously-written fantasy about the friendship between a princess and her pegasus

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.

I have not read anything by Robin McKinley before but I hear nothing but great things about her work.  This book comes out next week and the synopsis sounds intriguing.  Additionally, I just read a great interview about this book by Sarah Rees Brennan (author of The Demon's Lexicon) and Robyn McKinley. Go check it out here if you are interested!

What book are YOU waiting on?

I've read a few things by Robin McKinley - loved her book Beauty. The cover for Pegasus is gorgeous! I've heard the book ends on a cliffhanger though and there is a part 2 in the making.
