Cover Crush: The Radiant Road by Katherine Catmull
When Publishers Weekly describes a book as a “gorgeously complicated dream of a book” you sit up and take notice. Then you see the cover, which looks part painting, part dream and you know you have one intriguing book on your hands. I cannot wait to devour this dreamy book when it releases on January 19, 2016.
A gorgeously written tale of magic, friendship, and self-discovery set in a dream-like landscape filled with fairies.
After years of living in America, Clare Macleod and her father are returning to Ireland, where they’ll inhabit the house Clare was born in—a house built into a green hillside with a tree for a wall. For Clare, the house is not only full of memories of her mother, but also of a mysterious boy with raven-dark hair and dreamlike nights filled with stars and magic. Clare soon discovers that the boy is as real as the fairy-making magic, and that they’re both in great danger from an ancient foe.
Fast-paced adventure and spellbinding prose combine to weave a tale of love and loyalty in this young adult fantasy.
