Today on the blog we’re featuring the new epic fantasy novel, WEST, the sequel to Edith Pattou’s bestselling East. I am totally in love with the cover of this book–I am kind of
In the sequel to the beloved high fantasy East, Rose sets off on a perilous journey to find her true love when he goes missing in a thrilling tale of danger, magic, adventure, and revenge.
When Rose first met Charles, he was trapped in the form of a white bear. To rescue him, Rose traveled to the land that lay east of the sun and west of the moon to defeat the evil Troll Queen. Now Rose has found her happily-ever-after with Charles—until a sudden storm destroys his ship and he is presumed dead. But Rose doesn’t believe the shipwreck was an act of nature, nor does she believe Charles is truly dead. Something much more sinister is at work. With mysterious and unstoppable forces threatening the lives of the people she loves, Rose must once again set off on a perilous journey. And this time, the fate of the entire world is at stake.
The synopsis of this story reminds me a lot of a movie I watched as a child that I only now have vague memories of. The one where the MC fell in love with the polar bear/man? But he would only become a human at night and if she ever saw him in the light he would die or something? Does anyone else remember this film? I can hardly remember it, except for thinking it was terribly tragic and magical all at once. Which makes me want to check out this book even more! Look for a review soon!
