Waiting on Wednesday #96: Walk on Earth a Stranger

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick for this week's WoW is...


Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson


Title: Walk on Earth a Stranger (The Gold Seer Trilogy #1)
Author: Rae Carson

Release date: September 22nd 2015
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy

The first book in a new trilogy from acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Rae Carson. A young woman with the magical ability to sense the presence of gold must flee her home, taking her on a sweeping and dangerous journey across Gold Rush–era America.

Lee Westfall has a secret. She can sense the presence of gold in the world around her. Veins deep beneath the earth, pebbles in the river, nuggets dug up from the forest floor. The buzz of gold means warmth and life and home—until everything is ripped away by a man who wants to control her. Left with nothing, Lee disguises herself as a boy and takes to the trail across the country. Gold was discovered in California, and where else could such a magical girl find herself, find safety? Rae Carson, author of the acclaimed Girl of Fire and Thorns trilogy, dazzles with this new fantasy that subverts both our own history and familiar fantasy tropes.

Walk on Earth a Stranger, the first book in this new trilogy, introduces—as only Rae Carson can—a strong heroine, a perilous road, a fantastical twist, and a slow-burning romance. Includes a map and author’s note on historical research.

2014 saw a rise in the number of YA fantasies, and 2015 seems to be carrying on the trend. This book sounds so cool! The premise is really interesting and I can't wait to find out more about it.

  2. This one looks good. I haven't read a lot of fantasies but lately I'm starting to get into them more. Rae Carson's really good, so I'm thinking I might give this one a try. Great pick.
