Dusty Reads 13

February 14, 2012 Bookish 0

For my lucky 13th Dusty Read I have chosen Songs of the Earth by Elspeth Cooper. It is the first book in her Wild Hunt trilogy. 

    Gair is under a death sentence.

    He can hear music – music with power – and in the Holy City that means only one thing: he’s a witch, and he’s going to be burnt at the stake. Even if he could escape, the Church Knights and their witchfinder would be hot on his heels, whilst his burgeoning power threatens to tear him apart from within.

    There is no hope

    … none but a secretive order, themselves persecuted almost to destruction. If Gair can escape, if he can master his own growing, dangerous abilities, if he can find the Guardians of the Veil, then maybe he will be safe.

    Or maybe he’ll discover that his fight has only just begun.

This sounds like a very exciting book, and I am eager to eventually read it. So many books, so little time.

What’s been gathering dust on your bookshelf?
