Release Date: November 17th 2015
From Richelle Mead, the #1 internationally bestselling author of Vampire Academy and Bloodlines, comes a breathtaking new fantasy steeped in Chinese folklore.
For as long as Fei can remember, there has been no sound in her village, where rocky terrain and frequent avalanches prevent residents from self-sustaining. Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom.
When villagers begin to lose their sight, deliveries from the zipline shrink and many go hungry. Fei’s home, the people she loves, and her entire existence is plunged into crisis, under threat of darkness and starvation.
But soon Fei is awoken in the night by a searing noise, and sound becomes her weapon.
Richelle Mead takes readers on a triumphant journey from the peak of Fei’s jagged mountain village to the valley of Beiugo, where a startling truth and an unlikely romance will change her life forever...
I've been reading Richelle Mead's books since I was in middle school, so I'm so excited that she's released some new YA! I still need to read Silver Shadows and the Ruby Circle, so DO NOT TALK TO ME ABOUT THOSE BOOKS. Also, this book is a fantasy set in China! I'm Cantonese, so I'm very excited to read a book about some Chinese fantasy. :D That cover is also just so gorgeous! I looooove it, and I'm so glad they decided to put a person of colour on the cover. Diversity ftw! Can't wait to read this one!
