The official synopsis states:

For as long as Fei can remember, there has been no sound in her village, where rocky terrain and frequent avalanches prevent residents from self-sustaining. Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom.When villagers begin to lose their sight, deliveries from the zipline shrink and many go hungry. Fei’s home, the people she loves, and her entire existence is plunged into crisis, under threat of darkness and starvation.

But soon Fei is awoken in the night by a searing noise, and sound becomes her weapon.

Why I’m Waiting

I’ve been a Richelle Mead fan ever since I discovered Vampire Academy years ago. Since then I’ve been hooked on that series and its spin-off, Bloodlines. Now that Bloodlines has ended, I am eagerly anticipating Soundless. It will be fun to see how Mead tackles Chinese mythology, and take a break from vampires. The book cover is beautiful, and the story promises an interesting a majestic location for Fei’s journey to take place. I’m also interested to see if this is a stand alone novel, or the first in a new series. Can’t wait!
