Waiting on Wednesday (9)

TITLE: Dust Girl
Book 1 in The American Fairy Trilogy
AUTHOR: Sarah Zettel
GENRE: Historical Fantasy, faeries
SUMMARY FROM PUBLISHER: Callie LeRoux lives in Slow Run, Kansas, helping her mother run their small hotel and trying not to think about the father she's never met. Lately all of her energy is spent battling the constant storms plaguing the Dust Bowl and their effects on her health. Callie is left alone, when her mother goes missing in a dust storm. Her only hope comes from a mysterious man offering a few clues about her destiny and the path she must take to find her parents in "the golden hills of the west" (California). Along the way she meets Jack a young hobo boy who is happy to keep her company—there are dangerous, desperate people at every turn. And there's also an otherworldly threat to Callie. Warring fae factions, attached to the creative communities of American society, are very aware of the role this half-mortal, half-fae teenage girl plays in their fate.


WHY I'M EAGER: Because it looks like everything I love rolled into one. Historical fiction/fantasy blend (love that genre), fae, creative people, plus threat of war. Just looks like it's made of win. Plus, the publisher promises fans of Gemma Doyle will adore this. I don't know how true that will be but I did love Gemma Doyle to bits so I'm definitely looking forward to this one.
