Waiting On Wednesday - Elsewhens by Melanie Rawn

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Elsewhens by Melanie Rawn

Touchstone, the magical theater troupe, continues to build audiences. But Cayden is increasingly troubled by his “elsewhens,” the uncontrolled moments when he is plunged into visions of the possible futures. He fears that his Fae gift will forever taint his friendships; his friends fear that his increasing distance will destroy him.     

But worldly success follows them—an apparent loss in the Trials leads to Touchstone being selected to travel to the Continent with a Royal Embassy to collect Prince Ashgar’s new bride. They are the first theater artists to appear outside Albeyn for at least seventy years—for magic is suspect and forbidden elsewhere, and the Kingdom’s easy race mixing and magic use horrifies the people they are to travel among. (Feb 19, 2013)


With Touchstone coming out in paperback on Christmas eve, it looks like I may just have a chance to get caught up before this second instalment hits stores.

  2. I need to read "Touchstone" too. Rawn used to be one of my favorite authors, but I think I burnt myself out because I read so many of her books all at once. But I think 20 years is a long enough break- don't you?

  4. I've had Touchstone on my shelf all year, should definitely make an effort before this one hits shelves.
