Happy Tuesday! I’ve been having issues with my blog posting at the times I set it for and thus appear to have gone without posting for a week which has been a huge mess. So today I’m actually publishing this piece myself! It’s an extremely short list this week (2 books) but I’m super interested in both books on my radar.
The Never Tilting World by Rin Chupeco – B&N Run
A world split between day and night. Two sisters who must unite it. The author of The Bone Witch kicks off an epic YA fantasy duology perfect for fans of Furyborn.
Generations of twin goddesses have long ruled Aeon—until one sister’s betrayal split their world in two. A Great Abyss now divides two realms: one cloaked in eternal night, the other scorched beneath an ever-burning sun.
While one sister rules the frozen fortress of Aranth, her twin rules the sand-locked Golden City—each with a daughter by their side. Now those young goddesses must set out on separate, equally dangerous journeys in hopes of healing their broken world. No matter the sacrifice it demands.
I NEED THIS. I’ve been eyeing this title for weeks and am so happy it’s finally released. Sisters are always interesting, especially those with powers who are fighting and create two different worlds. I’m excited to explore these two different worlds and see how this turmoil came to be and if there’s a chance for reconciliation. Plus who doesn’t love a good journey story?
Fireborne (The Aurelian Cycle #1) by Rosaria Munda – Possible TBR
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.
From debut author Rosaria Munda comes a gripping adventure that calls into question which matters most: the family you were born into, or the one you’ve chosen.
I’m a huge fan of dragons, it’s everything else that usually goes along with them that I’m not a fan of. I never got into Tolkien, Eragon or anything else similar to those. I’ve heard a ton of good buzz about this book though and somehow managed to locate it at my local B&N last friday. I read the first few chapters and it was good. The only thing stopping me is my lack of cash and my never ending TBR. Yes I liked the first few chapters, but is it all downhill from there? I need to decide if I want to put the time and money into this one. Let’s be honest though I probably will.
