Blood Heir by Amelie Wen Zhao

Book Summary:
This hot debut is the first book in an epic new series about a princess hiding a dark secret and the con man she must trust to clear her name for her father’s murder.
In the Cyrilian Empire, Affinites are reviled. Their varied gifts to control the world around them are unnatural—dangerous. And Anastacya Mikhailov, the crown princess, has a terrifying secret. Her deadly Affinity to blood is her curse and the reason she has lived her life hidden behind palace walls.
When Ana’s father, the emperor, is murdered, her world is shattered. Framed as his killer, Ana must flee the palace to save her life. And to clear her name, she must find her father’s murderer on her own. But the Cyrilia beyond the palace walls is far different from the one she thought she knew. Corruption rules the land, and a greater conspiracy is at work—one that threatens the very balance of her world. And there is only one person corrupt enough to help Ana get to its core: Ramson Quicktongue.
A cunning crime lord of the Cyrilian underworld, Ramson has sinister plans—though he might have met his match in Ana. Because in this story, the princess might be the most dangerous player of all.

My Review:

When the emperor is found dead, his only daughter is accused of murder and now on the run.

Ana is in survivor mode since she ran away. She must find the man that killed her father and clear her name before it’s to late. In order to do that she must team up with a crime lord, Ransom.

With some help from the crime lord she learn some horrible family secrets and what been going on in her kingdom since she ran off. Ana tries to keep her powers hidden also and under control. Which will be prove challenging when trying to take back her kingdom and save her brother.

I thought the book was such a magical thrill ride from the beginning and the end. The summary give a lot of what the book is book is about also. There a lot of action and death in this read. You will have trouble on who to trust also. It was a perfect retelling of Anastasia story. You connect well with the characters and fall in love with the story. Even the cover to the book is so pretty looking.

Looking for new fantasy series, then try Blood Heir.

Happy Reading!!!

Conceal Don’t Feel by Jen Calonita

Book Summary:
What if Anna and Elsa never knew each other? When a magical accident erases Anna and Elsa’s memories not only of magic, but of each other the sisters are separated for protection. But when Elsa unexpectedly finds herself as a young queen mysterious magic begins to happen and questions of her past start to form. Will the sisters ever be reunited?

My Review:

A magical curse separates two sisters for years.

Elsa been living life of a royal. She dreams to someday have a sister by her side, but her mother can’t have anymore kids. She grows up learning the ropes to ruling. Still Elsa feels like something is missing. After her parents lost at sea, secrets from the past resurfaces. Elsa must deal with magical powers on her own and having to rule a kingdom herself. A hidden letter, may hold the answers Elsa seeks and she may not be so alone anymore

Anna been living the quiet life at a bakery. She loves making sweets and her adoptive parents so much. Yet Anna feel like her calling is in Arendelle. Somehow she is drawn there when she see the snow. Something is calling to her, will Anna get the answers she seek.

I did enjoyed Conceal Don’t Feel. It like watching Frozen movie again, but with awesome twist. I think it was nice getting glimpse into the sisters lives if they never met. It was a different change from the story, which have nice point of views between the sisters. If you love Frozen like me, then you will enjoy this new retelling.

Ready to travel Into the Unknown?

Happy Reading!!!!

{Arc Review} Reverie by Ryan La Sala

Book Summary:
All Kane Montgomery knows for certain is that the police found him half-dead in the river. He can’t remember how he got there, what happened after, and why his life seems so different now. And it’s not just Kane who’s different, the world feels off, reality itself seems different.
As Kane pieces together clues, three almost-strangers claim to be his friends and the only people who can truly tell him what’s going on. But as he and the others are dragged into unimaginable worlds that materialize out of nowhere—the gym warps into a subterranean temple, a historical home nearby blooms into a Victorian romance rife with scandal and sorcery—Kane realizes that nothing in his life is an accident. And when a sinister force threatens to alter reality for good, they will have to do everything they can to stop it before it unravels everything they know.

My Review:

What happens when you wake up in a hospital with hardly no memory or how the accident happen?

Kane is confused on what happen when he almost die. He remembers his family, but can’t remember having friends. First day back from school, he meets a girl who seems to have the answers. After over hearing her and group of other people talk about him, he knows something is up. Kane life is on the line and must remember who he is before it’s to late.

The book was such a magical read. It hard explaining to much without giving it all away. I want my readers to be surprised what the Reverie truly is for themselves. I did like the idea being confused in the beginning of the book like Kane was, on what’s happening with the story. This book will blow your mind on what’s real or not. This magical adventure will leave you such fun twist and turns you may not see coming. It recently came out last week. Just behind reviewing it.

If your in the mood for a good read, then check out Reverie. Not sure if it’s a stand alone, but would love more from this book.

Happy Reading!!!

{Arc Review} A River of Royal Blood by Amanda Joy

Book Summary:
Sixteen-year-old Eva is a princess, born with the magick of marrow and blood–a dark and terrible magick that hasn’t been seen for generations in the vibrant but fractured country of Myre. Its last known practitioner was Queen Raina, who toppled the native khimaer royalty and massacred thousands, including her own sister, eight generations ago, thus beginning the Rival Heir tradition. Living in Raina’s long and dark shadow, Eva must now face her older sister, Isa, in a battle to the death if she hopes to ascend to the Ivory Throne–because in the Queendom of Myre only the strongest, most ruthless rulers survive.
When Eva is attacked by an assassin just weeks before the battle with her sister, she discovers there is more to the attempt on her life than meets the eye–and it isn’t just her sister who wants to see her dead. As tensions escalate, Eva is forced to turn to a fey instructor of mythic proportions and a mysterious and handsome khimaer prince for help in growing her magick into something to fear. Because despite the love she still has for her sister, Eva will have to choose: Isa’s death or her own.

My Review:

A River of Royal Blood is such a promising new fantasy read. The storyline was very detailed written. Some of the characters you will end up loving or hating. It was such a magical read which I love.

Eva in the books has not been seen in years. She been away trying hard to train and getting ready to face her sister into battle. With no magical training, it going to be tough. She bumps into a hunter, who may hold the key to unlock her powers and face unknown family secrets. Will she be ready to take on her sister in time?

The summary give most of the book away. I enjoy the flashback Eva has with her sister. How they used to be so close and now they must kill each other. You can tell throughout the book she conflicted on what to do. The world building is pretty neat and the setting. The story centers mostly when sisters have to kill each other to get the crown. Lots of magical effects happens and sister rivalry.

Looking for a new read, then check out A River of Royal Blood. It came out this week.

Happy Reading!!!
