Honestly, this whole ‘stuck at home’ thing really suits me. I’m not someone who gets bored easily. There’s a million things on my mind at a time and I know how to always entertain myself. So I love that one of my favourite bloggers and most cherished book friends Alex from Reading by Starlight tagged me in The Stuck at Home Book Tag. I love this tag because of the straight forward questions and also, it feels like a catch-up on what I’m reading, plan to read and what I’m doing whilst stuck at home!Continue reading “The Stuck at Home Book Tag”
While most of the world has drowned beneath the sudden rising waters of a climate apocalypse, Dinétah (formerly the Navajo reservation) has been reborn. The gods and heroes of legend walk the land, but so do monsters.
Maggie Hoskie is a Dinétah monster hunter, a supernaturally gifted killer. When a small town needs help finding a missing girl, Maggie is their last—and best—hope. But what Maggie uncovers about the monster is much larger and more terrifying than anything she could imagine.
Maggie reluctantly enlists the aid of Kai Arviso, an unconventional medicine man, and together they travel to the rez to unravel clues from ancient legends, trade favors with tricksters, and battle dark witchcraft in a patchwork world of deteriorating technology.
As Maggie discovers the truth behind the disappearances, she will have to confront her past—if she wants to survive.
Magdalena Hoskie’s talents are a little unconventional. An unhealthy amount of bloodlust and years spent under the tutelage of an immortal warrior has taught her how to be hard, fast and merciless. It makes her the perfect warrior to fight ancient monsters – but she doesn’t want to be anybodies hero. In fact, the most interesting part about Trail of Lightning is that she’s struggling to reconcile with the monstrous part of herself.Read more
I love using alliteration to help drive my monthly reading goals. Last year, I did Sequel September with all my fantasy sequels and it was really successful! I want to replicate that success and read a few more tomes this month with some of the fantasy series I need to catch up on. Of course there’ll be romances and thrillers peppered along the way!
I don’t think any month this year has had a line up of new book releases that had me nearly as excited as I am for September. Some of these releases have been on my TBR pile for months, needless to say I am overrun with utter joy that September is fast approaching – I’m ready to escape to the Renaissance Fair, a Chalet amongst snow covered mountains and French inspired fantasy worlds.
Bryce Quinlan had the perfect life—working hard all day and partying all night—until a demon murdered her closest friends, leaving her bereft, wounded, and alone. When the accused is behind bars but the crimes start up again, Bryce finds herself at the heart of the investigation. She’ll do whatever it takes to avenge their deaths.
Hunt Athalar is a notorious Fallen angel, now enslaved to the Archangels he once attempted to overthrow. His brutal skills and incredible strength have been set to one purpose—to assassinate his boss’s enemies, no questions asked. But with a demon wreaking havoc in the city, he’s offered an irresistible deal: help Bryce find the murderer, and his freedom will be within reach.
As Bryce and Hunt dig deep into Crescent City’s underbelly, they discover a dark power that threatens everything and everyone they hold dear, and they find, in each other, a blazing passion—one that could set them both free, if they’d only let it.
House of Blood and Earth’s pages held a lot of what Sarah J. Maas is known for – femme fatale characters, hot supernatural beings and brooding mythical males. Some people are probably rolling their eyes already, however I think there’s something to be said for writing what you know. And despite a really rough beginning with a lot of info dumping, House of Blood and Earth turned out to be a really charming story, where friendship was at the centre of it all.
