Yes, that’s right, it’s review time! Because nothing says weekend like books, glorious books. 🙂
Okay, fine, nothing says it’s the weekend like sleeping in, but that’s not the point.
Books. That’s the point.
And this book is a fantastic one.
The people here are as harsh as the landscape, but they’re not without their warmth, and in a land of perpetual winter, warmth is important. Heck, even in a world not cursed with perpetual winter, warmth is important. The warmth Marishka finds is not exactly conventional, which makes her story all the more intriguing.
How do you survive as an outcast in a place as harsh as Ingary? Beyond that, how do you thrive?
Read this book and find out. Seriously, read it – if I keep talking, there will be spoilers. 🙂
Bleizgeist is wonderfully evocative and beautifully written, the kind of story that sticks with a person. I can’t wait to read it again.
In case you missed the blurb earlier this week, here ’tis again:
Ingary is a harsh land. Cursed by a perpetual winter, the isolated little town has all but forget why they worship the wolf.
Marked by magic she cannot control, Marishka is an outcast. Alone and starving she is plagued by geiste, the unconscious minds of the people of Ingary, roaming the wilderness as they sleep. Attracted to the gramarye in Marishka’s blood, the geiste give her no rest. Losing herself to madness, she is saved when she chances to fall in love. But when her affair is discovered, all hope is taken from her.
Beaten and lovelorn, she resigns herself to death.
And then the wolf walks through her door, and Marishka recalls the meaning of Bleizgeist—the spirit of the wolf.
