41150325When a powerful viceroy arrives with a fleet of mechanical dragons and stops an attack on Anlei’s village, the villagers see him as a godsend. They agree to give him their sacred, enchanted River Pearl in exchange for permanent protection—if he’ll marry one of the village girls to solidify the alliance. Anlei is appalled when the viceroy selects her as a bride, but with the fate of her people at stake, she sees no choice but to consent. Anlei’s noble plans are sent into a tailspin, however, when a young thief steals the River Pearl for himself.

Knowing the viceroy won’t protect her village without the jewel, she takes matters into her own hands. But once she catches the thief, she discovers he needs the pearl just as much as she does. The two embark on an epic quest across the land and into the Courts of Hell, taking Anlei on a journey that reveals more is at stake than she could have ever imagined.

With incredibly vivid world building and fast-paced storytelling, Stronger Than a Bronze Dragon is great for readers who are looking for something fresh in epic fantasy.

We got a new JoBros album after an entire decade and I am so excited! Yayayay!! I have spent the morning listening to the album on repeat and OMFG these boys just got so much better with time! Let’s just the wait of an entire freaking decade was totally worth it because the new music is so freaking amazing and I LOVE ALL OF IT!

The Bird & The Sword, Amy Harmon – Audiobook Review

Swallow, Daughter, pull them in, those words that sit upon your lips. Lock them deep inside your soul, hide them ‘til they’ve time to grow. Close your mouth upon the power, curse not, cure not, ‘til the hour. You won’t speak and you won’t tell, you won’t call on heav’n or hell. You will learn and you will thrive. Silence, Daughter. Stay alive.

The day my mother was killed, she told my father I wouldn’t speak again, and she told him if I died, he would die too. Then she predicted the king would trade his soul and lose his son to the sky.

My father has a claim to the throne, and he is waiting in the shadows for all of my mother’s words to come to pass. He wants desperately to be king, and I just want to be free.

But freedom will require escape, and I’m a prisoner of my mother’s curse and my father’s greed. I can’t speak or make a sound, and I can’t wield a sword or beguile a king. In a land purged of enchantment, love might be the only magic left, and who could ever love . . . a bird?

The king’s scholar, the magus, believes he knows the site of an ancient treasure. To attain it for his king, he needs a skillful thief, and he selects Gen from the king’s prison. The magus is interested only in the thief’s abilities.

What Gen is interested in is anyone’s guess. Their journey toward the treasure is both dangerous and difficult, lightened only imperceptibly by the tales they tell of the old gods and goddesses.

Most Anticipated Releases of 2019

most anticipated releases of 2019

If you’re still here, after all this time, reading my blog, kudos to you! I know that I have been the absolute worst when it comes to bookish things this past year, be it reading or blogging or bookstagramming (I DID NOT CLICK EVEN ONE PICTURE!!!!!). So, one of my resolutions for this year has been to be more active on these forums, but most importantly, to grow my blog from just a measly review blog and include more stuff. Which is why, I’m going to try to participate in more book memes, post more bookish lists, try to interview authors and so on. But also, I want to diversify my little corner on the internet to talk more about other things I like – movies, music, tv shows, and the like. So, lets hope that I am able to do it too!

In keeping with this resolution, I am finally, finally, finally getting around my first list for the year – my most anticipated releases. It gives my heart so much joy that so very many of these are diverse books, because yes, #WeNeedDiverseBooks is the absolute truth and I AM SO HAPPY THAT SO MANY OF THEM ARE RELEASING THIS YEAR!

Now, without further ado, let’s get to it!!

(Please note : This list is in no particular order and is just me rambling about books I am excited about!)

Children of Blood and Bone, Tomi Adeyemi – Book Review

1459165497497

36859561They killed my mother.
They took our magic.
They tried to bury us.
Now we rise.

Zelie remembers when the soil of Orisha hummed with magic. When different clans ruled – Burners igniting flames, Tiders beckoning waves, and Zelie’s Reaper mother summoning forth souls.

But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, anyone with powers was targeted and killed, leaving Zelie without a mother and her people without hope. Only a few people remain with the power to use magic, and they must remain hidden.

Zelie is one such person. Now she has a chance to bring back magic to her people and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zelie must learn to harness her powers and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.

Danger lurks in Orisha, where strange creatures prowl, and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zelie herself as she struggles to come to terms with the strength of her magic – and her growing feelings for an enemy.
