This looks like it could be good. Something to add to the #mustread list
Once I was a fae princess with sea-magic at my fingertips. Now? I’m a hunted supernatural in a squalid shop, stripped of my power. My only comforts are stale cookies, Elvis records, and my hula-hoop. Then a lethally sexy fae king arrives and rips even those away.
After the brutal king throws me in prison, I strike a bargain with him: my freedom in exchange for helping him find a magic blade. What Lyr doesn’t know is that the blade might restore my stolen magic.
But as we journey, the gorgeous jerk starts to make me feel things I’ve never felt. When Lyr touches me, desire ignites. I see raging passion in his eyes too. If I give in, I risk losing my chance at reclaiming my power…and, even worse, I could be forfeiting my life.
different way to use magic in a storyline! It’s not completely unique but the
way in which magic’s and Angels are used in this tale is fantastic. A lot of
the characters names are familiar from modern religions which I think makes the
text more relatable to readers.

worked to create for her own means. With the use of Angel magic and her own
Mage talents, she sets off events that domino into big trouble!
I found the
book to be well written, using intelligent prose and holding just the right
amount of humour. I believe this book would appeal to many young adults who
enjoy the fantasy genre. I feel that it was just not quite as
“complicated” in comparison to my normal reads. It’s not that I found
the novel lacking or boring, I just found it difficult to focus in some areas.
this book has kept me interested throughout and has been an enjoyable read.
Hope to see more great things from this author in the future. I recommend this
not only to YA age group, but to anyone interested in fantasy. I give this book
a rating of 7/10 stars.
This is the second book in the Chronicle of the Unhewn authored by Brian Staveley which has been a fanastic continuation to a hectic adventure of war and magic. Adare struggles to be the best queen for her people, even though it has always been a male upon the throne, she feels that she is still the best person for the job, especially since her brothers, Valin and Kadden are either missing or unable to perform the tasks needed.

the inevitable battle closer each day, and the realm is in turmoil in either
repetition for disaster and war or fleeing for safety.

of magics really make the story intriguing. I found this book quite good
overall although I did find myself very confused in a variety of areas,

with the series, but I do hope I can figure things through a bit better with
the next instalment. Even saying that, I did enjoy the overall storyline.

enjoys fantasy novels that are in the “Game of Thrones” type genre. I give this

Have been separated for some time as the two boys were sent away to study whilst their sister was kept behind to learn the running of the kingdom from home.
takes on a fast pace from the beginning picking up the story and running with
it. Although a little confusing at first, it wasn’t long before I was turning
pages far into the night. I particularly enjoy the inclusion of the Kestrel.
Not only are the giant creatures important in the storyline they make fantastic

Everley Donovan is living on borrowed time. The lone survivor of her family’s unexplained assassination, she was saved by an ingeniously crafted clockwork heart.

Now, every tick-tock reminds her how fragile her existence is and hastens her quest to expose Killian Markham, the navy admiral who shattered her world and left her for dead. But Everley’s hunt for justice will be a long and hard-won voyage.
Her journey takes her to a penal colony on a cursed isle, where she will be married off and charged to build the new world. It is here, and beyond, that hidden realms hide, treasures are unearthed, her family secrets are buried, and young love will test the strength of her makeshift heart.

A great war has come to the land under the Northern Sky.
Beyond the Black River, among the forests and mountains of the north, lives an ancient race of people. Their lives are measured in centuries, not decades; they revel in wilderness and resilience, and they scorn wealth and comfort.
By contrast, those in the south live in the moment, their lives more fleeting. They crave wealth and power, their ambition is limitless, and their cunning unmatched.
When the armies of the south flood across the Black River, the fragile peace between the two races is shattered. On a lightning-struck battlefield, the two sides will fight – for their people, for their land, for their very survival.
