Waiting on Wednesday: The Faerie Ring by Kiki Hamilton

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming releases we're anxiously awaiting!

Coming September 27, 2011!

The Faerie Ring by Kiki Hamilton

London, December 1871

Orphaned and picking pockets in London’s Charing Cross station to support not only herself, but her ‘family’ of orphans, sixteen year-old Tiki steals the Queen’s ring and thinks she’s solved their problems. That is, until Rieker, a pickpocket from the North End, suspects her in the theft and tells her that the ring is really a reservoir that holds a truce between the British and Faerie courts.

When he warns her that the fey will do anything, including murder, to recover the ring, Tiki is unsure whether to believe him or not. To complicate matters, Rieker seems to know something about the unusual birthmark on Tiki’s wrist. But when Tiki and her family are threatened the game changes.

In a dazzling debut that takes you from the gritty slums of Victorian London to the glittering ballrooms of the Royal Palace to the menacing Otherworld, you won’t want to miss this thrilling tale of mystery, adventure and romance.

Victorian London and faeries? Count me in, please! I'm intrigued by this truce between the British and the fey -- I wonder if the novel weaves the fantastical into the real history? Maybe blames the English Civil War on the faeries? That would be awesome. Cromwell, a faerie -- could you imagine? Ha! I also love the Dickensian vibe of the pickpocketing orphans, and their family bond could be a great emotional center for the novel. This book sounds like it was made for me =)

Doesn't this book sound fabulous? September is too far away! What future release are you anticipating this week?
