New WoW

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. In it, bloggers highlight an upcoming release they are excited for. This week, my pick is:



Goldenhand by Garth Nix

Release Date: October 11, 2016

From Amazon:

The long-awaited fifth installment in Garth Nix’s New York Times bestselling Old Kingdom series, for readers who enjoy series by Rae Carson, Kristin Cashore, Scott Westerfeld, and Cassandra Clare.

Goldenhand takes place six months after the events of Abhorsen and follows the novella Nicholas Sayre and the Creature in the Case, which is featured in Across the Wall.

Lirael lost one of her hands in the binding of Orannis, but now she has a new hand, one of gilded steel and Charter Magic. On a dangerous journey, Lirael returns to her childhood home, the Clayr’s Glacier, where she was once a Second Assistant Librarian. There, a young woman from the distant North brings her a message from her long-dead mother, Arielle. It is a warning about the Witch with No Face. But who is the Witch, and what is she planning? Lirael must use her new powers to save the Old 

I’m excited for this one because I remember reading the first book in this series in middle or high school. I will admit I’ll need to read a few more of the books in the series before I can tackle this one, but I’m excited the series is still going strong!

More Information: Goodreads, Amazon

  1. Truth be told, until I saw a proof of this on a booktuber’s instagram I didn’t even know the Old Kingdom series was still going! I used to adore ‘Sabriel’ when I was younger and I’m so excited to discover there’s still more stories left to come – something tells me I need to dig out those books and have a good re-read ready for ‘Goldenhand’!
