Wishing on Wednesday #12: Hero by Alethea Kontis

Wishing on Wednesday is a weekly meme to feature recent and upcoming releases that I’m wishing for!


Rough and tumble Saturday Woodcutter thinks she's the only one of her sisters without any magic—until the day she accidentally conjures an ocean in the backyard. With her sword in tow, Saturday sets sail on a pirate ship, only to find herself kidnapped and whisked off to the top of the world. Is Saturday powerful enough to kill the mountain witch who holds her captive and save the world from sure destruction? And, as she wonders grumpily, "Did romance have to be part of the adventure?" As in Enchanted, readers will revel in the fragments of fairy tales that embellish this action-packed story of adventure and, yes, romance.

Why I Want It:

Last Wednesday I saw this cover for the first time, and immediately wanted to feature it that week on Wishing on Wednesday, but alas, I’d already posted.Enchanted (Woodcutter Series, #1)

Regular readers of this blog probably know that Enchanted was one of my favorite books of 2012. Alethea was super nice when I met her shortly after reading Enchanted (just realized I never blogged about it!) I can’t wait to see how she continues the story of the Woodcutter sisters!

And you can’t deny that’s a gorgeous cover. Not at all what I was expecting, but I’m a sucker for fluffy blue dresses, and it nicely compliments the cover of Enchanted.
