Waiting on Wednesday: Fiendish by Brenna Yovanoff

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

Title: Fiendish
By: Brenna Yovanoff
Publication Date: August 14, 2014

Clementine DeVore spent ten years trapped in a cellar, pinned down by willow roots, silenced and forgotten.

Now she’s out and determined to uncover who put her in that cellar and why. 

When Clementine was a child, dangerous and inexplicable things started happening in New South Bend. The townsfolk blamed the fiendish people out in the Willows and burned their homes to the ground. But magic kept Clementine alive, walled up in the cellar for ten years, until a boy named Fisher sets her free. Back in the world, Clementine sets out to discover what happened all those years ago. But the truth gets muddled in her dangerous attraction to Fisher, the politics of New South Bend, and the Hollow, a fickle and terrifying place that seems increasingly temperamental ever since Clementine reemerged.

Okay, so I'll admit: the most intriguing aspect of this book is the cover. It's one of the most gorgeous books I've ever seen. (I have a thing for trees and Victorian houses.) The story sounds like it will match  (if not surpass) the standards of its cover. I've read Yovanoff's work before, so I'm definitely expecting another strange and beautiful ride that speaks to me on a spiritual level.
