So, I love seeing what books people are buying that are newly released! It is fun to see what new books are out there! I did a huge haul on Amazon in the month of March, and I wanted to share with you guys some of the amazing books I found!
Crooked Kingdom– The sequel to Six of Crows, and let me just say that this book was absolutely phenomenal! It always kept you guessing, and really heightened my emotions as the reader. Review to come soon!
Empress of A Thousand Skies– I just finished this one as of this publication! The story reminds me of the fast-pacing of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. If you enjoy cliffhangers at the end of each chapter, a mash up of the sci-fi and fantasy genres you’ve been waiting for, and issues discussed such as how much loss of privacy in the name of technological advancement is too much, this is the book for you! For more, check out my review here!
Norse Mythology– Another novel I am currently reading, this one by Neil Gaiman himself! If you enjoyed Thor but wanted to see more of his world you will enjoy this novel. If you’re anything like me, you will probably start imagining Thor, Loki, and Odin from the movies as you read along. I also recommend it so far if you enjoy reading Greek Mythology.
The Edge of Everything– A mix of urban fantasy, contemporary YA, and the story of a bounty hunter! Intrigued yet?
The Valiant– I picked this one up because I heard that it is similar to An Ember in the Ashes. The main character, Fallon, is captured and trained in a school for gladiators, where she ends up working for none other than Julius Caesar!
The Crown’s Game– Two enchanters, or people with special powers, must compete for the favor of the King. One survives, and one gets sentenced to death. The paperback comes out April 18th, you can currently order the hardcover!
The Queen of Blood Book One of the Queens of Renthia- (This book is new adult, not young adult)- In this world, young women are trained as heirs to the Queen of Blood. This Queen stands in the way of evil spirits destroying all of humankind. Our story follows the story of two such heirs, as they take a dangerous risk in attempting to discover why the spirits are so restless and against the nature of humans.
A Thousand Pieces of You (Firebird)– The Blurb says that Cloud Atlas meats Orphan Black- intriguing in itself! Margeurite travels to an alternate parallel universe, all to capture Paul, her family’s charming assistant, who escaped into another rule to avoid the law. Margeurite is determined to avenge her father after he is murdered. I personally can’t wait to get to this one, and how beautiful is the cover?!
A Shadow Bright and Burning (Kingdom on Fire, Book One)- One sorceress is the chosen one, fated to defeat ancient evil. Or is she?! This story begins with a huge twist, and maybe, unlike in other fantasy novels, she is not the chosen one. Just someone who needs to change the world.
A Darker Shade of Magic– I have heard so many good things about this series! Much like A Thousand Pieces of You, this story deals with parallel universes. This time, the parallel universes are in London. From what I can tell, the novel brings together time travel and urban fantasy.
Three Dark Crowns– Three princesses, three crowns, one victor. Much like The Crown’s game, this story deals with a competition for power, with death falling to the losers. However, the stakes are even higher because the three princesses are all sisters. Can you imagine fighting against your siblings to the death for power, a tradition that is forced upon you? This one sounds like its’ going to be intense!
