Book Synopsis (section header)

Esmae once wanted nothing more than to help her golden brother win the crown of Kali but that dream died with her best friend. Alexi broke her heart, and she vowed to destroy him for it. And with her sentient warship Titania beside her, how can she possibly fail?

As gods, beasts, and kingdoms choose sides, Alexi seeks out a weapon more devastating than even Titania. Past lives threaten the present. Old enemies claim their due. And Esmae cannot outrun the ghosts and the questions that haunt her. What really happened to her father? What was the third boon her mother asked of Amba?

The House of Rey is at war. And the entire galaxy will bleed before the end.

15 Most Anticipated Fantasy Books of 2019 (Jul-Dec)

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. How it works is that each Tuesday the host assigns a topic and then posts their top ten list that fits the topic. Every blogger can create their own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well and link to the host’s. The topic for June 18th, 2019 was: Most Anticipated Releases of the Second Half of 2019. As I was on hiatus on that day, I decided to post about my anticipated releases today.

Book Synopsis (section header)

In the land of Sempera, the rich control everything – even time. Ever since the age of alchemy and sorcery, hours, days and years have been extracted from blood and bound to iron coins. The rich live for centuries; the poor bleed themselves dry.

There, Jules encounters danger and temptation in the guise of the Gerling heir, Roan, who is soon to be married.

Some of my most anticipated books came out in April, which I had the pleasure of reading early copies of. Read on to find out which ones and what I’m looking forward to in May!
