I am so excited for this book :D It's going to be amazing. I adore Cat Winters. Truly. I adore her so much. She's such a kind person. <3 And she writes aaamazing books. I have loved her first three; In the Shadow of Blackbirds + The Cure for Dreaming + The Uninvited :D I haven't gotten to read her story in Slasher Girls & Monster Boys yet, since my copies haven't arrived, but I imagine I'll love that one too :) I cannot wait to read more by Cat. She is awesome. Her stories are perfection. And oh my gosh, I think The Steep and Thorny Way sounds AMAZING :D It looks so gorgeous too. The cover is stunning. Ahh. I simply cannot wait to read this book. March 8th feels too far away. <3 Waiting for this book is going to be long. But it's going to be worth it too. Because I know I'll love it :) What do you think of the cover?
A thrilling reimagining of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, The Steep and Thorny Way tells the story of a murder most foul and the mighty power of love and acceptance in a state gone terribly rotten.
Oregon is not a welcoming place for Hanalee Denney, the daughter of a
white woman and an African-American man. She has almost no rights by
law, and the Ku Klux Klan breeds fear and hatred in even Hanalee’s
oldest friendships. Plus, her father, Hank Denney, died a year ago, hit
by a drunk-driving teenager. Now her father’s killer is out of jail and
back in town, and he claims that Hanalee’s father wasn’t killed by the
accident at all but, instead, was poisoned by the doctor who looked
after him—who happens to be Hanalee’s new stepfather.
The only way for Hanalee to get the answers she needs is to ask Hank himself, a “haint” wandering the roads at night.
