Waiting on Wednesday!


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're salivating for.

My "Waiting On" Wednesday selection this week  is...

Title: Jepp, who Defied the Stars
Author: Katherine Marsh
Release Date: October 9th, 2012

Why I'm Excited About It...

Oooo! I have only recently become alerted to this title (by Heidi at Bunbury in the Stacks) and I just love the look and sound of it! I adore the title and the cover, and a character who is a court dwarf?! Just sounds epic. 

What It's About...


Is it written in the stars from the moment we are born? 

Or is it a bendable thing that we can shape with our own hands? 

Jepp of Astraveld needs to know. 

He left his countryside home on the empty promise of a stranger, only to become a captive in a luxurious prison: Coudenberg Palace, the royal court of the Spanish Infanta. Nobody warned Jepp that as a court dwarf, daily injustices would become his seemingly unshakable fate. If the humiliations were his alone, perhaps he could endure them; but it breaks Jepp’s heart to see his friend Lia suffer. 

After Jepp and Lia attempt a daring escape from the palace, Jepp is imprisoned again, alone in a cage. Now, spirited across Europe in a kidnapper’s carriage, Jepp fears where his unfortunate stars may lead him. But he can't even begin to imagine the brilliant and eccentric new master—a man devoted to uncovering the secrets of the stars—who awaits him. Or the girl who will help him mend his heart and unearth the long-buried secrets of his past.

Masterfully written, grippingly paced, and inspired by real histori­cal characters, Jepp, Who Defied the Stars is the tale of an extraordinary hero and his inspiring quest to become the master of his own destiny.
