Walk on Earth a Stranger (The Gold Seer Trilogy, #1)
"Walk on Earth a Stranger (The Gold Seer Trilogy, #1)" by Rae Carson
Expected Publication: September 22, 2015

The first book in a new trilogy from acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Rae Carson. A young woman with the magical ability to sense the presence of gold must flee her home, taking her on a sweeping and dangerous journey across Gold Rush–era America.
Lee Westfall has a secret. She can sense the presence of gold in the world around her. Veins deep beneath the earth, pebbles in the river, nuggets dug up from the forest floor. The buzz of gold means warmth and life and home—until everything is ripped away by a man who wants to control her. Left with nothing, Lee disguises herself as a boy and takes to the trail across the country. Gold was discovered in California, and where else could such a magical girl find herself, find safety? Rae Carson, author of the acclaimed Girl of Fire and Thorns trilogy, dazzles with this new fantasy that subverts both our own history and familiar fantasy tropes.
Walk on Earth a Stranger, the first book in this new trilogy, introduces—as only Rae Carson can—a strong heroine, a perilous road, a fantastical twist, and a slow-burning romance. Includes a map and author’s note on historical research.
 
This sounds really interesting! It takes a fantasy twist to history, and I'm excited for that! I still need to read her first trilogy, and I hope I can start it soon!

By the way! I've finally decided to try Twitter! Here is my profile! It doesn't have a whole lot now, but I hope to figure it out soon!

  1. Hi. This seems an interesting book. I think I will add it to my wishlist. Sadly, as you, I never read the first trilogy by Rae Carson. Too many books and so little time.

    Happy readings! :)

  9. Walk on Earth a Stranger sounds amazing, Lizzie! I love that the MC disguised herself as a boy, too. Which was probably a wise thing to do during the era the book is set in... Definitely adding to my TBR.
    Have a fantastic rest of the week.
