Waiting on Wednesday #55: HEART OF THE FAE - by Emma Hamm


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme originally hosted by Breaking the Spine and now taken over by Wishful Endings that highlights upcoming book releases we're excited to read. On my blog, I include movies as well.


Publication Date: 1st December 2017. 

Once upon a time… A plague sweeps across the emerald hills of Uí Néill, leaving a young midwife’s father with months to live. To save her people, Sorcha makes a deal with a dangerous Fae. She must travel across the sea, through merrow and kelpie lands, to find a forgotten king on a crumbling throne. Born king of the Seelie Fae, Eamonn fought battles unnumbered to uphold honor, duty, and freedom… until his twin brother sank a blade between his shoulders. Crystals grew from the wound, splitting open skin and bone. His people banished him to a cursed isle for his disfigurement, now king of criminals and fools. With the help of brownies, pixies, and will-o’-the-wisps, Sorcha battles to break through his crystalline shell and persuade him to take back his stolen throne. This determined beauty could come dangerously close to stealing his beastly heart. 


It's a fairy tale retelling that takes a very unique spin on the original, so YES OF COURSE I WANT THIS BOOK THANK YOU VERY MUCH. 

And I actually have an eARC, so I'm hoping to start it soon. I've read one of Emma's books before, and her writing is gorgeous. I can't wait to see how she handles this particular story. 





Anyone else excited for Heart of the Fae?

  4. I have not heard of this book before, so thank you for sharing it. I love fairy tale retellings. In my opinion, there should be a lot more fairy tale retellings out there (well, a lot more retellings in general). Also, I find the Fae very intriguing, so another reason to add this book to my wishlist.

    Happy readings!
