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
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.

Lirael must use her new powers to save the Old
