Waiting on Wednesday: The Treachery of Beautiful Things by Ruth Long

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to spotlight an upcoming release that we're excited about. This week I'm waiting o

A darkly compelling mix of romance, fairy tale, and suspense from a new voice in teen fiction

The trees swallowed her brother whole, and Jenny was there to see it. Now seventeen, she revisits the woods where Tom was taken, resolving to say good-bye at last. Instead, she's lured into the trees, where she finds strange and dangerous creatures who seem to consider her the threat. Among them is Jack, mercurial and magnetic, with secrets of his own. Determined to find her brother, with or without Jack's help, Jenny struggles to navigate a faerie world where stunning beauty masks some of the most treacherous evils, and she's faced with a choice between salvation or sacrifice--and not just her own.
(Summary from GoodReads)

What can I say? I'm a sucker for fairy books. I like the fact that this might be a little darker than your average faery tale, and it kind of reminds me of Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series which I loved. 

The Treachery of Beautiful Things comes out Aug. 16th.


  1. I like the dark sort of fairy tales, too, so I'm looking forward to this one, too :)
