Waiting on Wednesday #90: The Secret Horses of Briar Hill by Megan Shepherd

Happy Wednesday, fellow book lovers! This week's "can't wait to read" is:

The Secret Horses of Briar Hill
by Megan Shepherd
Publication Date: October 11, 2016
There are winged horses that live in the mirrors of Briar Hill hospital. In the mirrors that line its grand hallways, which once belonged to a princess. In those that reflect the elegant rooms, now filled with sick children. It is her secret.

One morning, when Emmaline climbs over the wall of the hospital’s abandoned gardens, she discovers something incredible: a white horse with broken wings has left the mirror-world and entered her own.

Tucked into the garden’s once-gleaming sundial, Emmaline finds a letter from the Horse Lord. He is hiding the wounded white horse, named Foxfire, from a dark and sinister force—a Black Horse who hunts by colorless moonlight. If Emmaline is to keep the Black Horse from finding her new friend, she must collect colorful objects with which to blind him. But where can Emmaline find color when her world is filled with gray?
So The Secret Horses of Briar Hill is going to be a middle grade book, I believe, but I'm still really excited for it! I loved Megan Shepherd's The Madman's Daughter trilogy (even if I didn't love The Cage) and I can't wait to give this book a try!!

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine.
