Waiting on Wednesday [14]

Hosted by Breaking the Spine

The Flame in the Mist
by Kit Grindstaff
Expected Publication: 9th April 2013

From Goodreads:

Set in an imagined past, this dark fantasy-adventure is for fans of Philip Pullman's The Golden Compass. Features  Jemma, a fiery-headed heroine held captive in Agromond Castle, yet destined to save mist-shrouded Anglavia.

Fiery-headed Jemma Agromond is not who she thinks she is, and when the secrets and lies behind her life at mist-shrouded Agromond Castle begin to unravel, she finds herself in a chilling race for her life. Ghosts and misfits, a stone and crystals, a mysterious book, an ancient prophecy—all these reveal the truth about Jemma's past and a destiny far greater and more dangerous than she could have imagined in her wildest fantasies. With her telepathic golden rats, Noodle and Pie, and her trusted friend, Digby, Jemma navigates increasingly dark forces, as helpers both seen and unseen, gather. But in the end, it is her own powers that she must bring to light, for only she has the key to defeating the evil ones and fulfilling the prophecy that will bring back the sun and restore peace in Anglavia.

As soon as I saw, 'for fans of Philip Pullman's The Golden Compass' I wanted this book. His Dark Materials trilogy is one of my favourite series ever and Philip Pullman is one of my most loved authors, so anything remotely close to it sounds good to me! Also, anything described as a 'dark fantasy-adventure' must be good!
