Waiting on Wednesday: Soundless by Richelle Mead

My TBR list is always growing and I thought it would be fun to share my anticipation for those books with all of you. This is not my own original meme; it belongs to Breaking the Spine. It specifically spotlights upcoming releases. As it implies in the title, I'll be posting this meme on Wednesdays. Please feel free to comment and let me know what books you guys are waiting on as well!

Synopsis: From Richelle Mead, the #1 internationally bestselling author of Vampire Academy and Bloodlines, comes a breathtaking new fantasy steeped in Chinese folklore. 

For as long as Fei can remember, there has been no sound in her village, where rocky terrain and frequent avalanches prevent residents from self-sustaining. Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom.

When villagers begin to lose their sight, deliveries from the zipline shrink and many go hungry. Fei’s home, the people she loves, and her entire existence is plunged into crisis, under threat of darkness and starvation.

But soon Fei is awoken in the night by a searing noise, and sound becomes her weapon.

Richelle Mead takes readers on a triumphant journey from the peak of Fei’s jagged mountain village to the valley of Beiugo, where a startling truth and an unlikely romance will change her life forever...

I've never read the Bloodlines or Vampire Academy books (even though they are on my TBR list). This book was recommended to me through Goodreads based on my "to-read" list and the cover just called to me. There is just something so entrancing about it that I just end up staring at it for long periods of time. I haven't read anything based on Chinese folklore in a long time so I'm deeply curious. Since Richelle Mead is so popular for her fantasy writing, I'm confident that I won't be disappointed. 

I received an ARC of this at BEA so my waiting won't be for long!
