I Want to Read It (18): Seven Sorcerers



I Want to Read It, a hybrid between WLW (or WOW) and what's on my to-be read pile. Well, instead of focusing just on books I would like to acquire, I will be using it to feature books that I just want to read. From the one's I want to buy to the one's sitting on my TBR at home.



Seven Sorcerers by Caro King, May 3, 2011. Published by Aladdin. Source: Own/TBR
Nin Redfern wakes up one Wednesday to discover that her little brother, Toby, has vanished and no one -- not her mother, not her grandparents -- can remember him. Only Nin can, and she's going to get him back. But when Bogeyman Skerridge (who always gets his child) comes for Nin too, she realizes that finding Toby is going to be a lot harder then she thought. Toby is trapped in the House of Strood, which is located in another land called The Drift, and Skerridge can't -- or won't -- help her find him.

Left with no choice, Nin heads into The Drift with her new friend Jonas. The Drift is filled with the fabulous and the terrible, but a plague is slowly killing all the magical things. The Seven Sorcerers who ruled there might have been able to prevent it, but in the end, even they have succumbed.
Why: I bought a copy of this book, wait for it, maybe four years ago and still have not got around to reading it. Yet, as I was organizing my books, earlier this month, it caught my attention. I get the feeling this book really wants me to read it! 

Seven Sorcerers, I've actually been meaning to read it for some time now, it was just misplaced (i.e. buried under a stack of a stack of books) till recently.
