These two books released today and I can’t wait to read them?
(Yes, that is a question, I think I’m on the fence here)
This first one sounds pretty good and has pretty good ratings so far. It’s being branded as Game of Thrones meets Red Rising. I hope it lives up to the hype…
Fireborne by Rosaria Munda
Annie and Lee were just children when a brutal revolution changed their world, giving everyone—even the lowborn—a chance to test into the governing class of dragonriders.
Now they are both rising stars in the new regime, despite backgrounds that couldn’t be more different. Annie’s lowborn family was executed by dragonfire, while Lee’s aristocratic family was murdered by revolutionaries. Growing up in the same orphanage forged their friendship, and seven years of training have made them rivals for the top position in the dragonriding fleet.
But everything changes when survivors from the old regime surface, bent on reclaiming the city.
With war on the horizon and his relationship with Annie changing fast, Lee must choose to kill the only family he has left or to betray everything he’s come to believe in. And Annie must decide whether to protect the boy she loves . . . or step up to be the champion her city needs.
This second one I’m not sure I really want to read. It’s supposed to be horror-fantasy, which is a strange combination, but what the hey it’s good for Halloween, right?
The Night Weaver by Monique Snyman
SHADOW GROVE IS A PERFECTLY PLEASANT TOWN …
Shadow Grove isn’t a typical town. Bad things happen here. Children disappear, one after the other, and nobody is doing anything about it. Parents don’t grieve, missing posters don’t line the streets, and the sheriff seems unconcerned.
Seventeen-year-old Rachel Cleary lives on the outskirts of Shadow Grove, next to the creepy forest everyone pretends doesn’t exist. Usually the forest is filled with an eerie calm, an unmistakable graveyard solemnity. But the trees have started whispering, forgotten creatures are stirring, and the nights feel darker than ever.
Something is stalking the residents of Shadow Grove, changing them into brain-dead caricatures of themselves. It’s up to Rachel to stop the devouring of her hometown before all is destroyed and everyone she loves is forever lost.
So those are my two uncertain reads of the week! What books are you uncertain about or even better what can’t you wait to read? Let me know in the comments below!
