Waiting on Wednesday: Balefire 1-4 by Cate Tiernan

Razorbill (January 6, 2011)
The whole Balefire series by Cate Tiernan is now in one edition. 

After seventeen-year-old Thais Allard )loses her widowed father in a tragic car accident, she is forced to leave the only home she's ever known to live with a total stranger in New Orleans. New Orleans greets Thais with many secrets and mysteries, but none as unbelievable as the moment she comes face to face with the impossible — an identical twin, Clio.

Thais soon learns that she and the twin she never knew come from a family of witches, that she possesses astonishing powers, and that she, along with Clio, has a key role in Balefire, the coven she was born into.
Fiery Clio is less than thrilled to have to share the spotlight, but the twins must learn to combine their powers in order to complete a rite that will transform their lives and the coven forever.

Has anyone read these books? I had never heard of them until I saw them on Eleni's Tantalizing Future YA Releases post- now I want to read them badly!
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event spotlighting upcoming releases we are highly anticipating. It is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine
What are you waiting on?

I've read A Chalice of Wind, it was good. I'm still looking for the second and fourth books, so I haven't finished the series yet. ^_^

That cover is what drew me in. I went poking around on ebay and the old covers just didn't do much for me--I think I'll wait until the new version comes out so I can get the prettier cover! :)

Casey said...

Great pick! I can't wait to read this one either!

Eleni @ La Femme Readers said...
