Feather Bound by Sarah Raughley
Pub: May 6, 2014
When Deanna’s friend Hyde (who has been assumed dead for nine years) shows up at his father’s funeral, Deanna gets pulled into a world of secrets and betrayals of the rich and powerful, and must fight to keep her own secret safe.
At precisely seven in the morning, my oldest sister, Ericka, arrived at our Brooklyn shack and was horrified to find our dad sprawled out on the couch, basting in a sea of beer cans.
Full Review coming in May!
Overall: A fascinating premise (half-swan humans whose feathers hold magical powers!), interesting characters, and a world very much like our own.
