"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. So here's a thing I'm looking forward to: Blood Red, by Mercedes Lackey (3 June 2014).
Ten years ago, Gretchen Schwarzwald was orphaned by an evil Earth Master who wanted her parents' land and killed them all with the werewolves he created. She was rescued by a Fire Master, a member of the Woodsman's Lodge, and taught how to use her own Fire Powers. Now another werewolf pack is ravaging Exmoor, and she has come from the Schwarzwald--the Black Forest of Germany--to help London's White Lodge eradicate it and find and destroy the Elemental Master behind it.
I always enjoy this series. I generally like them a bit better when I have to work a little to figure out which fairy tale she's riffing on, and here we're told right up front that it's Little Red Riding Hood; but at least it looks like Gretchen is already a competent mage, so this won't be yet another variation on the theme of "young woman finds out she has magic and must learn to use it," the way the last several entries have been.
