Friday Finds (March 19)

Friday Finds is hosted over on Should Be Reading. It's all about what great books you have heard about/discovered in the past week. Here is my entry, and head over to the Should Be Reading Blog to read others and find books to add to your TBR pile!

I have two that I have made note of this week - I know there is more I have found - but these are the two I noted:

Freezing Point by Karen Dionne 
Found when I was browsing around to spend my two credits.  I'm actually getting this one from the library though.  It sounds like a great Crichton-type adventure.

One man’s dream of providing clean drinking water for millions, tapped from the polar ice, sparks a conflict of humanity, science, big business, and environmental extremism.

But no one can foresee the true danger hidden deep within the ice— an enemy more deadly than any could imagine, and an apocalyptic horror mankind may not survive. 

Mistwood by Leah Cypess
Found while blog surfing the Waiting on Wednesday posts (one of my favorite memes because everyone finds such excellent books).  I found this at The Serpentine Library.

The Shifter is an immortal creature bound by an ancient spell to protect the kings of Samorna. When the realm is peaceful, she retreats to the Mistwod.

But when she is needed she always comes.

Isabel remembers nothing. Nothing before the prince rode into her forest to take her back to the castle. Nothing about who she is supposed to be, or the powers she is supposed to have.

Prince Rokan needs Isabel to be his Shifter. He needs her ability to shift to animal form, to wind, to mist. He needs her lethal speed and superhuman strength. And he needs her loyalty--because without it, she may be his greatest threat.

Isabel knows that her prince is lying to her, but she can't help wanting to protect him from the dangers and intrigues of the court . . . until a deadly truth shatters the bond between them.

Now Isabel faces a choice that threatens her loyalty, her heart . . . and everything she thought she knew. 

So what did you find this week?
