The Raven Queen by Jules Watson
Publish Date: February 22nd
Format paperback: 544pp


Synopsis (From the Publisher):
"In this dazzling retelling of one of Ireland’s most stirring legends, acclaimed author Jules Watson brings to life the story of Maeve, the raven queen, who is as fierce as she is captivating.

She was born to be a pawn, used to secure her father’s royal hold on his land. She was forced to advance his will through marriage—her own desires always thwarted. But free-spirited Maeve will no longer endure the schemes of her latest husband, Conor, the cunning ruler of Ulster. And when her father’s death puts her homeland at the mercy of its greedy lords and Conor’s forces, Maeve knows she must at last come into her own power to save it.

With secret skill and daring, Maeve proves herself the equal of any warrior on the battlefield. With intelligence and stealth, she learns the strategies—and sacrifices—of ruling a kingdom through treacherous alliances. And to draw on the dangerous magic of her country’s oldest gods, Maeve seeks out the wandering druid Ruan, whose unexpected passion and strange connection to the worlds of spirit imperil everything Maeve thought true about herself—and put her at war with both her duty and her fate."

I'm especially swoon-y that it's over 500 pages -- something nice and meaty to dig into!

Dear Svea, I found your blog from Design it chic's "Boost My Blog Friday" and decided to follow. I have always been an avid reader and your blog is really exciting. As recently I buy books rather from the internet than from a bookshop (sadly), I often find myself wanting to find some new books but unsure of what to choose. I am sure that reading your blog will help me with that (and lead to an exponential increase of my personal books collection :).

Please visit my blog too if you have time!
