WoW: Named of the Dragon by Susanna Kearsley

I’m participating in Waiting on Wednesday hosted by Breaking the Spine. This gives me a chance to show the books I’m Waiting-on-Wednesdaylooking forward to coming out in the next few months.

Check out Breaking the Spine for more information.




Named of the Dragon by Susanna Kearsley

Series: None

Publication Date: October 6, 2015 (reprint, originally published 1998)

Genre: Historical Fiction

Synopsis (from Goodreads): Although it goes against her workaholic nature, literary agent Lyn Ravenshaw lets herself be whisked off to Wales for the Christmas holidays by her star client, flamboyant children’s author Bridget Cooper. She suspects Bridget has ulterior motives, but the lure of South Wales with its castles and myths is irresistible. Perhaps a change of scene will bring relief from the nightmares that have plagued her since the death of her child.

Lyn immerses herself in the peace and quiet of the charming Welsh village, but she soon meets an eccentric young widow who’s concerned her baby son is in danger—and inexplicably thinks Lyn is the child’s protector.

Lyn’s dreams become more and more disturbing as she forms a surprisingly warm friendship with a reclusive, brooding playwright, and is pulled into an ancient world of Arthurian legend and dangerous prophecies. Before she can escape her nightmares, she must uncover the secret of her dreams, which is somehow inextricably located in a time long ago and far away…

The TBR review that isn’t

the-firebirdI didn’t finish my TBR book for this month. 😦

The TBR Challeng is hosted by Wendy @ The Misadventures of Super Librarian. Each of us post a TBR review on the third Wednesday each month and if we want to we can post a review of a book which will follows a theme which Wendy posts for each month. This month the theme is: past RWA RITA winner and/or nominees.

The date snuck up on me this month and though I did find a RITA winner in my TBR books I didn’t start it soon enough. I’m listening to The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley which won the RITA Award for 2014. I’m loving the book, but have quite a bit more before I finish the book.named-of-the-dragon

So a little later this morning instead of the TBR review I’m posting the Waiting on Wednesday post I had planned for next week … which just happens to be another book by Susanna Kearsley!
