Synopsis


He will be the destruction of the crown and the ruination of the throne.

Power is much easier to acquire than it is to hold on to. Jude learned that lesson when she released her control over the wicked king, Cardan, in exchange for immeasurable power.

Now, as the exiled mortal Queen of Faerie, Jude is left reeling from Cardan’s betrayal. She bides her time, determined to reclaim everything he took from her. Opportunity arrives in the form of her deceptive twin sister, Taryn, whose mortal life is in peril.

Jude must risk venturing back into the treacherous Faerie Court, and confront her lingering feelings for Cardan, if she wishes to save her sister. But Elfhame is not as she left it. War is brewing. As Jude slips deep within enemy lines, she becomes ensnared in the conflict’s bloody politics.

And when a terrible curse is unleashed, panic spreads throughout the land, forcing her to choose between her ambition and her humanity….

🌟 Hi guys!! I hope you’re having a great day and that you’re enjoying your current reading. 💕 Today I bring you a couple of somewhat unexpected short reviews.

Love with all my heart both readings and they’ve put me in a great mood to read, so I think I made the right decision, I hope you enjoy the reviews and let me know everything in the comments.

Synopsis


Branches and stones, daggers and bones,
They locked the Beast away.

After the death of her sister, seventeen-year-old Violet Saunders finds herself dragged to Four Paths, New York. Violet may be a newcomer, but she soon learns her mother isn’t: They belong to one of the revered founding families of the town, where stone bells hang above every doorway and danger lurks in the depths of the woods.

Justin Hawthorne’s bloodline has protected Four Paths for generations from the Gray—a lifeless dimension that imprisons a brutal monster. After Justin fails to inherit his family’s powers, his mother is determined to keep this humiliation a secret. But Justin can’t let go of the future he was promised and the town he swore to protect.

Ever since Harper Carlisle lost her hand to an accident that left her stranded in the Gray for days, she has vowed revenge on the person who abandoned her: Justin Hawthorne. There are ripples of dissent in Four Paths, and Harper seizes an opportunity to take down the Hawthornes and change her destiny-to what extent, even she doesn’t yet know.

The Gray is growing stronger every day, and its victims are piling up. When Violet accidentally unleashes the monster, all three must band together with the other Founders to unearth the dark truths behind their families’ abilities—before the Gray devours them all.

Synopsis

In the city of Edriast, there is no deadlier duty than to serve as the Shadow.

As the personal servant of the powerful Lord Rennard, the Shadow’s life is all but forfeit. Rennard possesses one of five rare and dangerous Relics – a jewel that protects his bloodline, but slowly poisons everyone else in its proximity. When the current Shadow succumbs to its magic, nineteen-year-old blacksmith Kaylan is summoned to take his place.

It’s an appointment that will kill her.

As the time Kaylan has left ebbs away, hope begins to fade… That is, until she discovers a plot to destroy all five bloodlines in possession of the Relics.

A rebel force plans to put an end to Rennard’s rule and Kaylan suddenly finds herself embroiled in a cause that might just be worth fighting for. But no cause is without its costs…

As her life hangs in the balance and rebellion bears down on Edriast, Kaylan must decide where her loyalties lie – and how she’ll leave her mark on the world.

 💫 Hi guys, I’M BACK!! and I hope you’re having a wonderful day, enjoying your readings 💞
I know I’ve been absent in the past few days, but I felt that I needed to relax and be alone with myself until I felt better. I feel much better today, I haven’t gotten a job yet, but I’ve been sending and taking my resume everywhere and most people have been very kind so I have faith that everything will be solved soon. My boyfriend is a wonderful being who has been holding me as well as my family, I really don’t know what I would do without them, but they weren’t the only ones who were and are there for me, but also I have YOU and these days I have realized how much you mean to me and the huge impact you have on my life. I couldn’t be more grateful for all the beautiful messages and comments of love, encouragement, and support that I’ve received in these difficult days. I feel that every time I read a comment it fills me with a beautiful force that helps me move on and believe in myself. I don’t know what I’d do without you, I LOVE YOU, today and forever. Creating this blog has been one of my smartest decisions I swear, it’s my escape, my passion, and my safe place. 😊 
So, I’ll continue posting frequently as always, because honestly, I miss a lot when I don’t do it and later if something happens, I’ll keep you informed. THANK YOU SO MUCH, guys, I feel like the luckiest person in the world, I’m blessed you’re there for me 😭 ❤️  💫

Greece in the age of heroes. Patroclus, an awkward young prince, has been exiled to the court of King Peleus and his perfect son Achilles. By all rights their paths should never cross, but Achilles takes the shamed prince as his friend, and as they grow into young men skilled in the arts of war and medicine their bond blossoms into something deeper – despite the displeasure of Achilles’ mother Thetis, a cruel sea goddess. But then word comes that Helen of Sparta has been kidnapped. Torn between love and fear for his friend, Patroclus journeys with Achilles to Troy, little knowing that the years that follow will test everything they hold dear.

Profoundly moving and breathtakingly original, this rendering of the epic Trojan War is a dazzling feat of the imagination, a devastating love story, and an almighty battle between gods and kings, peace and glory, immortal fame and the human heart.
