Waiting on Wednesday: Blood & Flowers by Penny Blubaugh

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" is:

Blood & Flowers by Penny Blubaugh
Release Date: March 1, 2011
Publisher: HarperTeen
Age Group: Young Adult
Pages: 352

Three years ago, Persia ran away from her drug-addict parents and found a home with the Outlaws, an underground theater troupe. With time, this motley band of mortals and fey, puppeteers and actors, becomes the loving family Persia never had, and soon Persia not only discovers a passion for theater but also falls in love with one of the other Outlaws. Life could not be more perfect.

Until an enemy makes an unfair accusation against the group and forces them to flee their world and hide in the neighboring realm of Faerie. But in Faerie, all is not flowers and rainbows. With bloodthirsty trolls, a hostile monarchy, and a dangerous code of magic, the fey world is far from the safe haven the Outlaws had hoped for....

Following up her critically acclaimed Serendipity Market, Penny Blubaugh has created a beautiful and mysterious world where anything can happen—especially what you least expect.

I have to admit the first thing that got me interested in this book was the cover, gorgeous, stunning! Then I read the blub and well I really want it! I’m a tad obsessed with fae books at the moment, which is primarily due to Melissa Marr’s Wicked Lovely series, oh curse you Melissa Marr for writing such an engrossing series I can’t put down!

Well that’s my “waiting on” pick, what's yours this week?
