Book Blogger Hop Time!


It's Friday, which means the Book Blogger Hop at Crazy For Books. So welcome to all of my new visitors and followers, take a look around and enjoy your stay.
Please check out my giveaway of the book Amour Et Vengeance! It's international!

Question of the week: "What book are you most looking forward to seeing published in 2011?  Why are you anticipating that book?"

Naamah's Blessing (Kushiel's Legacy)My answer: The book I am most looking forward to is Naamah's Blessing (Kushiel's Legacy) by Jacqueline Carey. I have been reading this series since the first book, Kushiel's Dart, and I have loved every one! This book completes the trilogy of Moirin Mac Fainche of the Maghunn Don and I can't wait to see how it ends.
Here's the description from Amazon:
Returning to Terre d'Ange, Moirin finds the royal family broken. Wracked by unrelenting grief at the loss of his wife, Queen Jehanne, King Daniel is unable to rule. Prince Thierry, leading an expedition to explore the deadly jungles of Terra Nova, is halfway across the world. And three year old Desirée is a vision of her mother: tempestuous, intelligent, and fiery, but desperately lonely, and a vulnerable pawn in a game of shifting political allegiances.
As tensions mount, King Daniel asks that Moirin become Desirée's oath-sworn protector. Navigating the intricate political landscape of the Court proves a difficult challenge, and when dire news arrives from overseas, the spirit of Queen Jehanne visits Moirin in a dream and bids her undertake an impossible quest.
Another specter from the past also haunts Moirin. Travelling with Thierry in the New World is Raphael de Mereliot, her manipulative former lover. Years ago, Raphael forced her to help him summon fallen angels in the hopes of acquiring mystical gifts and knowledge. It was a disastrous effort that nearly killed them, and Moirin must finally bear the costs of those bitter mistakes.

I'm not familiar with Jaqueline Carey, but her work seems interesting, I should probably try it.

Kushiel's Dart is one of those books that I have been meaning to and meaning to and meaning to get to. I have several friends who are big fans and keep badgering me to read them.

Hey! I like your "5 blogs discovered" feature for the book blogger hop. What a cool way to pay it forward.
