{Birthday Giveaway} The Continent by Keira Drake

Book Summary:
For her sixteenth birthday, Vaela Sun receives the most coveted gift in all the Spire—a trip to the Continent. It seems an unlikely destination for a holiday: a cold, desolate land where two nations remain perpetually locked in combat. Most citizens lucky enough to tour the Continent do so to observe the spectacle and violence of battle, a thing long vanished in the peaceful realm of the Spire. For Vaela, the war holds little interest. As a smart and talented apprentice cartographer and a descendent of the Continent herself, she sees the journey as a dream come true: a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to improve upon the maps she’s drawn of this vast, frozen land.
But Vaela’s dream all too quickly turns to nightmare as the journey brings her face-to-face with the brutal reality of a war she’s only read about. Observing from the safety of a heli-plane, Vaela is forever changed by the sight of the bloody battle being waged far beneath her. And when a tragic accident leaves her stranded on the Continent, Vaela finds herself much closer to danger than she’d ever imagined—and with an entirely new perspective as to what war truly means. Starving, alone, and lost in the middle of a war zone, Vaela must try to find a way home—but first, she must survive.

My Review:

The Continent is a trip of a lifetime. A beautiful place to explore and see from afar.

This book was such an fantastic read. I thought this was such an original story. Something I never read before. I’m glad I gave this book a chance. It was hard reading the struggles the main character had to go through, but I did like her in the book. It very detailed world that drew me.

Vaela has such an creative nature in the book. Wanted to see the world around her. For her birthday she gets a trip of a lifetime. When and accident happens, leaving her alone in the wild of The Continent. Facing so many dangers and trying to stay alive alone. Will Vaela find a way home again?

Thought this book was a fast pace read. I enjoy watching Vaela grow and learn new things. This book is good for those who looking for something new and adventurous.

I’m giving away a new paperback copy of the book for my birthday.

Summary:

The story of The Continent continues, now unfolding in a fast-paced split narrative as told by Vaela Sun (originally of the Spire), Noro Dún (of the Aven’ei), and Skaala Kael (of the Xoe).
Vaela has left the privileged, peaceful land of the Spire, choosing to live with the boy she loves among the Aven’ei people on the Continent. But though the war between the Aven’ei and their longtime foe, the Xoe, has come to a temporary cease-fire, hatred on the Continent runs deep, and the question of whether or not violence is part of human nature becomes ever more difficult to answer. When Vaela is called upon to act as a diplomat and live among the Xoe, her journey takes a dangerous turn—but not for the reasons she might have suspected. Assumptions crumble away, betrayal lies hidden behind friendly faces, and Vaela becomes torn between a desire for peace and the need to conceal a terrible secret that could reignite a war.

In the midst of these struggles, Vaela learns the dark, shattering truth of how she came to be on the Continent. She must now choose between vengeance and forgiveness, and discover what she is truly willing to sacrifice for peace and love.

WILD BEAUTY, FIERCE LOYALTY, AND AN EPIC LOVE STORY… WELCOME TO THE CONTINENT. Fans of Vikings and Game of Thrones will find themselves at home in a world in which a fragile peace will soon be challenged by the darkest betrayal…
