On My Wishlist (69)

In On My Wishlist I spotlight books that I'm really looking forward to. I know there's a meme Waiting on Wednesday and there even are others, but I'm going to rebel and do it how I want it (hehe). I'll feature the synopsis as posted on Goodreads and put a linkie to the Goodreads page of the book. This week: Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley.

Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley
Expected publication date: April 28th, 2015

Aza Ray is drowning in thin air.

Since she was a baby, Aza has suffered from a mysterious lung disease that makes it ever harder for her to breathe, to speak—to live.

So when Aza catches a glimpse of a ship in the sky, her family chalks it up to a cruel side effect of her medication. But Aza doesn’t think this is a hallucination. She can hear someone on the ship calling her name.

Only her best friend, Jason, listens. Jason, who’s always been there. Jason, for whom she might have more-than-friendly feelings. But before Aza can consider that thrilling idea, something goes terribly wrong. Aza is lost to our world—and found, by another. Magonia.

Above the clouds, in a land of trading ships, Aza is not the weak and dying thing she was. In Magonia, she can breathe for the first time. Better, she has immense power—and as she navigates her new life, she discovers that war is coming. Magonia and Earth are on the cusp of a reckoning. And in Aza’s hands lies the fate of the whole of humanity—including the boy who loves her. Where do her loyalties lie?

This.. This just sounds like a magical mix of just about everything I love to read about. The cover is gorgeous, but the synopsis.. Gods, I just NEED to read this book. I just hope I'm not hyping it up too much in my head, because I don't want to be disappointed. It looks like it has so much potential, because it sounds like a highly imaginative world/story. It's a sad thing that April is still so far away..

  1. The mysterious lung disease is what made me excited in the first place and then came the amazing setting of a land of trading ships :D I just really hope the story focuses on that upcoming war and doesn't turn into a sappy romance story.
