Friday Finds is hosted by MizB from Should Be Reading and it asks us ‘what great books did you hear about/discover this past week?
Here is my find for the week…
Heart’s Blood by Juliet Marillier will be released on November 3, 2009 by Roc Hardcover. Here’s a bit about the book from Fantastic Fiction…this is also the cover from Fantastic Fiction as it’s my favorite…
This is a stunning gothic love story based on the legends of Beauty and the Beast. Whistling Tor is a place of secrets, a mysterious, wooded hill housing the crumbling fortress of a chieftain whose name is spoken throughout the district in tones of revulsion and bitterness. A curse lies over Anluan’s family and his people; those woods hold a perilous force whose every whisper threatens doom. For young scribe Caitrin it is a safe haven. This place where nobody else is prepared to go seems exactly what she needs, for Caitrin is fleeing her own demons. As Caitrin comes to know Anluan and his home in more depth she realizes that it is only through her love and determination that the curse can be broken and Anluan and his people set free.
I think this sounds really good and I sure wouldn’t mind reading it. What about you – what did you find this Friday? Let me know in the comments or share your link with me.
Sounds really interesting 🙂

Thanks for this one Dar, I loved the Seven Waters series! Juliet Marillier is an Aussie author so there's going to be a special cover released for us, which is nice. We usually get UK covers of most books here!
Ooh, I didn't know Juliet has a new title out! I'll have to keep a look out for that book! Thanks for the heads up, Dar!
Oooh, I want this!
