Waiting on Wednesday: ‘The Gloaming’ by Kirsty Logan

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly series hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming book releases we can’t wait to get our hands on.

This week’s Waiting on Wednesday pick is The Gloaming, the second full-length novel by Kirsty Logan, the author of the super enchanting The Gracekeepers!

After falling in love with her first novel, we knew we had to get our hands on Logan’s next book, which is being described as The Gracekeepersspiritual prequel.”

The Gloaming and its beyond gorgeous cover will hit shelves on April 19, 2018. Those of you in the U.S. can snag a copy through Book Depository.

The best lives leave a mark.

Mara’s island is one of stories and magic, but every story ends in the same way. She will finish her days on the cliff, turned to stone and gazing out at the horizon like all the islanders before her.

Mara’s parents – a boxer and a ballerina – chose this enchanted place as a refuge from the turbulence of their previous lives; they wanted to bring up their children somewhere special and safe. But the island and the sea don’t care what people want, and when they claim a price from her family, Mara’s world unravels.

It takes the arrival of Pearl, mysterious and irresistible, to light a spark in Mara again, and allow her to consider a different story for herself.

The Gloaming is a gorgeous tale of love and grief, and the gap between fairy tales and real life.
