Meet Roger. Skilled with words, languages come easily to him. He instinctively understands how the world works through the power of story.
Meet Dodger, his twin. Numbers are her world, her obsession, her everything. All she understands, she does so through the power of math.
Roger and Dodger aren’t exactly human, though they don’t realise it. They aren’t exactly gods, either. Not entirely. Not yet.
Meet Reed, skilled in the alchemical arts like his progenitor before him. Reed created Dodger and her brother. He’s not their father. Not quite. But he has a plan: to raise the twins to the highest power, to ascend with them and claim their authority as his own.
The highly anticipated third book in Sabaa Tahir’s New York Times bestselling EMBER QUARTET.
Beyond the Empire and within it, the threat of war looms ever larger.
The Blood Shrike, Helene Aquilla, is assailed on all sides. Emperor Marcus, haunted by his past, grows increasingly unstable, while the Commandant capitalizes on his madness to bolster her own power. As Helene searches for a way to hold back the approaching darkness, her sister’s life and the lives of all those in the Empire hang in the balance.
Far to the east, Laia of Serra knows the fate of the world lies not in the machinations of the Martial court, but in stopping the Nightbringer. But while hunting for a way to bring him down, Laia faces unexpected threats from those she hoped would aid her, and is drawn into a battle she never thought she’d have to fight.
And in the land between the living and the dead, Elias Veturius has given up his freedom to serve as Soul Catcher. But in doing so, he has vowed himself to an ancient power that will stop at nothing to ensure Elias’s devotion–even at the cost of his humanity.
Hi guys, I hope you’re having a beautiful day, today I bring you my Wrap Up of the month of January, where I’ll tell you all about my reading of the month. I’m super excited to start a new year on the blog, I feel that things are going super good and are very positive, with the blog itself, but also with the community that’s made of all of you: wonderful people that always inspire me and support me. Simply HAPPY to continue another year sharing what I love with you and you with me, so I wanted to start this new year thanking you, and wishing you the best on this year with your new projects and with your lives in general 💕 Continue reading “January Wrap Up || 2019”→
Elias and Laia are running for their lives. After the events of the Fourth Trial, Martial soldiers hunt the two fugitives as they flee the city of Serra and undertake a perilous journey through the heart of the Empire.
Laia is determined to break into Kauf—the Empire’s most secure and dangerous prison—to save her brother, who is the key to the Scholars’ survival. And Elias is determined to help Laia succeed, even if it means giving up his last chance at freedom.
But dark forces, human and otherworldly, work against Laia and Elias. The pair must fight every step of the way to outsmart their enemies: the bloodthirsty Emperor Marcus, the merciless Commandant, the sadistic Warden of Kauf, and, most heartbreaking of all, Helene—Elias’s former friend and the Empire’s newest Blood Shrike.
Bound to Marcus’s will, Helene faces a torturous mission of her own—one that might destroy her: find the traitor Elias Veturius and the Scholar slave who helped him escape…and kill them both.
This is the story of a very serious young girl who would rather study and dream than become a respectable housewife and live up to the expectations of the world around her. As well she should.
When she finds a doorway to a world founded on logic and reason, riddles and lies, she thinks she’s found her paradise. Alas, everything costs at the goblin market, and when her time there is drawing to a close, she makes the kind of bargain that never plays out well.
Twin sisters Jack and Jill were seventeen when they found their way home and were packed off to Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children.
This is the story of what happened first…
Jacqueline was her mother’s perfect daughter—polite and quiet, always dressed as a princess. If her mother was sometimes a little strict, it’s because crafting the perfect daughter takes discipline.
Jillian was her father’s perfect daughter—adventurous, thrill-seeking, and a bit of a tom-boy. He really would have preferred a son, but you work with what you’ve got.
They were five when they learned that grown-ups can’t be trusted.
They were twelve when they walked down the impossible staircase and discovered that the pretense of love can never be enough to prepare you a life filled with magic in a land filled with mad scientists and death and choices
📖 Hi guys!, I hope you’re having an incredible day, getting ready to start an amazing new year, from here, from my little place in the world, I wish you many successes, love, health and work, in this new year that begins. I know that all of you are capable to achieve all your goals! In other news, here we are, and I come to tell you all about my readings of the month, or failing that, the lack of them lol. This month I decided not to do a TBR, I honestly knew that I wouldn’t have much time to read and also I didn’t feel like reading anything specific, so this seemed like a good idea at the time. The good thing is, that I realized that I LOVE and I NEED my TBR, they help me to keep reading, no doubt. The bad thing is, that I’ve read almost nothing and I’m pretty disappointed about it. Although, what I read was good, I expected to do a better job, even more when I was participating in a Read-a-thon as incredible as the Short-a-thon, but well, life got in the way and the results aren’t that good 📖 Continue reading “December Wrap Up & Short-a-thon Fail ”→
🌸 Hi Guys!, I hope you’re having a beautiful day, today I’ll share with you my November Wrap Up, where I tell you about the books that I’ve read during the month. I’m really very pleased with my reading month, I think I was able to read almost everything I set out to read, so I’m happy about it.
Leaving the month’s readings a little aside, I had an INCREDIBLE month regarding the beautiful support I’ve received from all of you, I don’t like sharing my statistics and those things, because I feel there are many people who are just starting and they could feel the pressure about it, you know and I say this, because I’ve been there, but I just wanted to share with you that it’s been a great month for the blog. I’ve noticed a great growth in terms of followers in just a couple of days and that was amazing and such a beautiful surprise 😍 The blog has turned 2 years this month and that makes me felt a little bit nostalgic because it has happened so fast, but at the same time, I renewed my desire to continue with this project that gives me so much satisfaction and also, I have many new ideas for the next year and I’m very exciting to share them with you 🎉 I’ve started a new post series on the blog called “Spreading Love || Book Bloggers” (Part 1), where I’ll be sharing every week 5 extraordinary book bloggers that deserve all the love, and I’ve received beautiful messages regarding this and also a lot of support so I’m glad you like it, I’ll continue with this post series, as a way to express my gratitude to the community. THANK YOU FOR ALL THESE THINGS, YOU’RE ALWAYS THERE FOR ME 💕
Well, back to my reading, I read a total of 6 complete books and I want to add 1 more to the list, because although while I’m writing this I haven’t finished it yet, I’ll surely do it by the time this is uploaded and you have seen it. So this month was great for me, I’m very pleased with what I’ve read, I’ve had quite normal readings but I’ve loved a couple of them. As always I had some variety, from sci-fi, which is rare in me, to romance, magical creatures, paranormal, fantasy and a pretty much dark retelling. Without further ado, let’s START! 🌸 Continue reading “November Wrap Up ”→
Elizabeth Lavenza hasn’t had a proper meal in weeks. Her thin arms are covered with bruises from her “caregiver,” and she is on the verge of being thrown into the streets . . . until she is brought to the home of Victor Frankenstein, an unsmiling, solitary boy who has everything–except a friend.
Victor is her escape from misery. Elizabeth does everything she can to make herself indispensable–and it works. She is taken in by the Frankenstein family and rewarded with a warm bed, delicious food, and dresses of the finest silk. Soon she and Victor are inseparable.
But her new life comes at a price. As the years pass, Elizabeth’s survival depends on managing Victor’s dangerous temper and entertaining his every whim, no matter how depraved. Behind her blue eyes and sweet smile lies the calculating heart of a girl determined to stay alive no matter the cost . . . as the world she knows is consumed by darkness.
🌸 Hi Guys!, I hope you’re having a beautiful day, today I’ll share with you my October Wrap Up, where I tell you about the books that I’ve read during the month. Well, this month really wasn’t what I expected, at all. As you know, I took 2 weeks off, in which I’ve been completely absent from the blog and I took time for myself and my family, and although I spent an incredible time, I read almost nothing. I know that I said I would continue my usual reading but it wasn’t like that, I don’t know what happened, but the weeks flew by and I realized that I had hardly read a couple of pages, so I ended up failing completely with my reading in these free weeks
On the other hand, don’t worry, because I’ve read 3 books, which I read in the first weeks of the month, it’s not much, I know, but at least I have something to talk about in this post. I’ll not lie to you, I’m disappointed with myself since I thought I could read more, but well, I have no excuse, I was simply focused on other things. Even so, I enjoyed the 3 books that I get to read and I’m excited to tell you about them, I hope everyone has had a creepy month full of good readings🌸
I’m super excited to return, I want to thank again for all your beautiful messages and for understand my decision. I LOVE you guys, this community is wonderful. I have been thinking many new things for the blog and I can’t wait to share it with all of you 💕 Continue reading “October Wrap Up ”→
