I wanted to turn but I was held captive by the song on the wind. I’m coming, I told the voices. Please, wait for me.I've been following Rhiannon's blog since before she landed an agent, and I am so glad that her book FINALLY sold, and has an eerily mesmerizing cover, and I can WoW it! I am a proud high fantasy fan forever, and so I can't wait to see how Rhiannon tells her story. Hmm, maybe it'll be easier to acquire Australian books over in China...?
When her sister becomes betrothed to a prince in a northern nation, Zeraphina’s only consolations are that her loyal animal companions are by her side – and that her burning hunger to travel north is finally being sated.
Already her black hair and pale eyes mark her out as different, but now Zeraphina must be even more careful to keep her secret safe. Craving blood is not considered normal behaviour for anyone, let alone a princess. So when the king’s advisor, Rodden, seems to know more about her condition than she does, Zeraphina is determined to find out more.
Zeraphina must be willing to sacrifice everything if she’s to uncover the truth – but what if the truth is beyond her worst nightmares? [summary from Goodreads]
