Waiting On Wednesday #107: The Shadowmagic Trilogy, by John Lenahan




This is a weekly event hosted by
It showcases future releases which
we book bloggers
are eagerly anticipating!!




Here's my choice for this week!



The Shadowmagic Trilogy
Trade Paperback, 864 pages
The Friday Project
September 2, 2014
Fantasy, Young Adult Fiction

Book Synopsis

A Lord of the Rings for the 21st century. Only a lot shorter. And funnier. And completely different.

The complete Shadowmagic trilogy. Including Shadowmagic, Prince of Hazel and Oak and Sons of Macha.

Shadowmagic is a fantasy adventure for young adults (although grown ups will like it too). Written by one of the most popular magicians in the UK,  it brings a fresh approach to the genre and will have a broad appeal beyond the fantasy sections.






Why am I waiting on this one?

That first phrase in the synopsis
is what really did it for me:
"A Lord of the Rings for the 21st century."
Exactly.
Since Tolkien is one of my top
literary idols, any book that even remotely
resembles his work will definitely
capture my attention!
I also find this cover extremely appealing!






What do you think 
of my choice?
What awesome book(s) are you 
waiting on this week?
