For the A-Z challenge of 2012, I'm posting an A-Z list of books I want to read, inspired by my GoodReads "to read" list (which is rather long). For my K book, I've chosen a book in an epic (and not yet finished) fantasy series by one of my favourite Australian authors:
The Keeping Place (The Obernewtyn Chronicles #4) - Isobelle Carmody
When a Misfit is kidnapped, Elspeth finds she has little choice but to join the growing rebellion against the Council. Her extraordinary mental powers could tip the scales of the struggle, but Elspeth feels torn between toppling the corrupt authoritarian regime and seeking clues vital to a more personal quest—her ambition to destroy what remains of the Beforetime weaponmachines
Why do I want to read it? In truth, I have to read a few of her other books first (i.e. ALL the books prior to this one in this series), but I've wanted to for years and...I will!
