Waiting on Wednesday (88)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on Clariel by Garth Nix (10/14/14):

Description (from Goodreads):
Clariel is the daughter of the one of the most notable families in the Old Kingdom, with blood relations to the Abhorsen and, most importantly, to the King. When her family moves to the city of Belisaere, there are rumors that her mother is next in line for the throne. However, Clariel wants no part of it—a natural hunter, all she ever thinks about is escaping the city’s confining walls and journeying back to the quiet, green world of the Great Forest.

But many forces conspire against Clariel’s dream. A dangerous Free Magic creature is loose in the city, her parents want to marry her off to a killer, and there is a plot brewing against the old and withdrawn King Orrikan. When Clariel is drawn into the efforts to find and capture the creature, she discovers hidden sorcery within herself, yet it is magic that carries great dangers. Can she rise above the temptation of power, escape the unwanted marriage, and save the King?
Why I’m Waiting:
I grew up on this series. I’ve re-read Sabriel almost as many times as I re-read Ella Enchanted. I seriously love this dark, creepy fantasy. When I first heard that Nix was continuing the series, I didn’t believe it. It has been a very long time. And I’m so excited to read about another kick-butt strong female character. But more than that, I’m excited to get lost in this world again.
What are you waiting on this week?
