Novità in arrivo!

Acquistato dalla Newton Compton: The Bird and the Sword di Amy Harmon

Cosa dicono di questo romanzo: poetico, emozionante e romantico!

Per chi legge in lingua originale questa è la trama: Swallow, Daughter, pull them in, those words that sit upon your lips. Lock them deep inside your soul, hide them ‘til they’ve time to grow. Close your mouth upon the power, curse not, cure not, ‘til the hour. You won’t speak and you won’t tell, you won’t call on heav’n or hell. You will learn and you will thrive. Silence, Daughter. Stay alive.

The day my mother was killed, she told my father I wouldn’t speak again, and she told him if I died, he would die too. Then she predicted the king would trade his soul and lose his son to the sky.

My father has a claim to the throne, and he is waiting in the shadows for all of my mother’s words to come to pass. He wants desperately to be king, and I just want to be free.

But freedom will require escape, and I’m a prisoner of my mother’s curse and my father’s greed. I can’t speak or make a sound, and I can’t wield a sword or beguile a king. In a land purged of enchantment, love might be the only magic left, and who could ever love . . . a bird?

  1. Lo avevo già adocchiato in lingua *o* ne ho sentito parlare piuttosto bene! Spero mantengano la cover ^.^

    1. Sulla cover non mi farei troppe illusioni... :( Comunque la Harmon è una delle mie autrici preferite e leggo tutto quello che pubblicano in Italia. ♥
