{Arc Review} Kingsbane by Claire Legrand

Book Summary:
Rielle Dardenne has been anointed Sun Queen, but her trials are far from over. The Gate keeping the angels at bay is falling. To repair it, Rielle must collect the seven hidden castings of the saints. Meanwhile, to help her prince and love Audric protect Celdaria, Rielle must spy on the angel Corien—but his promises of freedom and power may prove too tempting to resist.
Centuries later, Eliana Ferracora grapples with her new reality: She is the Sun Queen, humanity’s long-awaited savior. But fear of corruption—fear of becoming another Rielle—keeps Eliana’s power dangerous and unpredictable. Hunted by all, racing against time to save her dying friend Navi, Eliana must decide how to wear a crown she never wanted—by embracing her mother’s power, or rejecting it forever.

My Review:

Kingsbane was such a epic adventure. have fallen in love again with this world. If you have yet read Furyborn, then you don’t have to read review.

Rielle tries hard to do the right thing, but is always tempted. The gates is falling and the angel’s are coming. A war is on the way, who side will Rielle will chose?

Eliana still struggling to come to terms with her gifts. She is afraid of ending up like her mother. With guidance from Simon and friends along the way, Will she be able to become the Sun Queen?

This book was so good. It leaves you on the edge of your seat until the very end. So be prepared with some tissues and a snuggle buddy when your finish reading. If your in mood for an awesome high fantasy with shocking twists, than your in for a treat. Kingsbane just came out today.

Happy Reading!!!!

Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand

Book Summary:
Beware of the woods and the dark, dank deep.
He’ll follow you home, and he won’t let you sleep.
Who are the Sawkill Girls?
Marion: the new girl. Awkward and plain, steady and dependable. Weighed down by tragedy and hungry for love she’s sure she’ll never find.
Zoey: the pariah. Luckless and lonely, hurting but hiding it. Aching with grief and dreaming of vanished girls. Maybe she’s broken—or maybe everyone else is.
Val: the queen bee. Gorgeous and privileged, ruthless and regal. Words like silk and eyes like knives, a heart made of secrets and a mouth full of lies.
Their stories come together on the island of Sawkill Rock, where gleaming horses graze in rolling pastures and cold waves crash against black cliffs. Where kids whisper the legend of an insidious monster at parties and around campfires.
Where girls have been disappearing for decades, stolen away by a ravenous evil no one has dared to fight… until now.

My Review:

This book was so haunting and breathe taking. I loved the story idea and the characters development in the book.

Marion, I somewhat liked her in the book. She mostly closed off and keep to self after an accident first time entering Sawkill Island. She just want to find a place where she belongs. What deep dark secrets are on Sawkill island will she discover?

Zoey, she is my favorite in the book. The only in the book that is smart on what’s happening on Sawkill Island. When her best friend goes missing, she knew something big is going on. To many girls had disappear on the island. Will Zoey be able to find the answers before it’s to late?

Val, the queen bee on the island. At first she comes off way to charming. Behind her looks and the charms, she hides a dark secret. All the girls that become her friend disappears. What does she know about the missing girls? What secrets is she keeping from everyone?

This book is the prefect fall. I enjoy the point of views between all three girls. You get a sense on who they are. In the end the book is filled with lots of twists and turns. You will not regret picking this book up for the fall.

Are you ready to travel to Sawkill Island?

Happy Reading!!

{Arc Review} Furyborn by Claire Legrand

Book Summary:
Follows two fiercely independent young women, centuries apart, who hold the power to save their world…or doom it.
When assassins ambush her best friend, the crown prince, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing her ability to perform all seven kinds of elemental magic. The only people who should possess this extraordinary power are a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light and salvation and a queen of blood and destruction. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven trials to test her magic. If she fails, she will be executed…unless the trials kill her first.
A thousand years later, the legend of Queen Rielle is a mere fairy tale to bounty hunter Eliana Ferracora. When the Undying Empire conquered her kingdom, she embraced violence to keep her family alive. Now, she believes herself untouchable–until her mother vanishes without a trace, along with countless other women in their city. To find her, Eliana joins a rebel captain on a dangerous mission and discovers that the evil at the heart of the empire is more terrible than she ever imagined.
As Rielle and Eliana fight in a cosmic war that spans millennia, their stories intersect, and the shocking connections between them ultimately determine the fate of their world–and of each other.

My Review:

This book was so amazing. I enjoyed every minute of it. The publishers was nice to sent me a review copy. Enjoyed most of the characters and love the world building.

One queen of blood and One queen of light. Read their stories and discover which one can save the world

Eilana, my favorite. She is kick butt assassin in the book. Do what needs to be done to survive, even hiding her own secrets from the kind himself. Who is she really?

Rielle, I enjoy her story. An young girl in hiding, but force to come out. Endure harsh treatment to prove she either Queen of Blood or Queen of light. Who will she become in the end?

Book is for more older teens. It has some mature contents in it. It for high fantasy lovers. There so many characters to love in the book. Grab some tissues that some sad stuff going on.

Happy Reading!!!!!!
