Synopsis


Rowan has gone rogue, and has taken it upon himself to put the Scythedom through a trial by fire. Literally. In the year since Winter Conclave, he has gone off-grid, and has been striking out against corrupt scythes—not only in MidMerica, but across the entire continent. He is a dark folk hero now—“Scythe Lucifer”—a vigilante taking down corrupt scythes in flames.

Citra, now a junior scythe under Scythe Curie, sees the corruption and wants to help change it from the inside out, but is thwarted at every turn, and threatened by the “new order” scythes. Realizing she cannot do this alone—or even with the help of Scythe Curie and Faraday, she does the unthinkable, and risks being “deadish” so she can communicate with the Thunderhead—the only being on earth wise enough to solve the dire problems of a perfect world. But will it help solve those problems, or simply watch as perfection goes into decline?

Synopsis


All her life, Spensa’s dreamed of becoming a pilot. Of proving she’s a hero like her father. She made it to the sky, but the truths she learned about her father were crushing. The rumors of his cowardice are true—he deserted his flight during battle against the Krell. Worse, though, he turned against his team and attacked them.

Spensa is sure that there’s more to the story. And she’s sure that whatever happened to her father in his starship could happen to her. When she made it outside the protective shell of her planet, she heard the stars—and it was terrifying. Everything Spensa has been taught about her world is a lie.

But Spensa also discovered a few other things about herself—and she’ll travel to the end of the galaxy to save humankind if she needs to.

Top 5 || Sci-Fi Books I Want to Read in 2020 🚀

 🚀 Hi, guys! I hope you ‘re having the best day ever and that you ‘re enjoying your reading!❤️ Today I bring you a new Top 5 because seems like I’ve become addicted to them 😅 , and I thought it would be fun to add some challenge, so in this “top 5” I’ll be sharing with you some sci-fi books that I want to try to read in this 2020.
This is a huge challenge for me because this genre has always been a hit or miss, but I thought it would be fun to see what I think about those who most attract my attention right now. In this list I’ll be showing you 5 sci-fi books that I think sound great, they’re also very popular and loved & they’re also books that are mostly located in space or on other planets, that’s why I’ve chosen them. We know that there are many types of sci-fi, but the only ones that represent a challenge for me are those that have to do with space things, spaceships travel and universe planets, so obviously that will be what I’ll be trying to read.  🌌 
I would never do this if I don’t think that there’s a possibility that I enjoy these books, I used to judge the genre a lot, to the point that I closed myself to want to read more because while I enjoy a lot of technological, alien things and time travel stuff, the things that happen in spaceships are another story. So, what changed my mind so I want to try again with this kind of genre? well, I read a book last year that I absolutely LOVED and made me re-think the idea that maybe I can enjoy space things and that was: Skyward by Brandon Sanderson, not only was amazing but it was in my top of favorite books of the year, it was a great surprise for me to enjoy it so much, so I thought, let’s do it! I’m going to put myself on this kind of annual challenge and obviously, you’ll witness my progress during 2020. I’ll not have any type of restriction to myself, by this I mean that if I’m not really enjoying the book, then I’ll not have problems and I’ll no doubt In “DNF”, this is just an experiment where I intend to see if I really have a real problem with this genre or I just haven’t read the indicated books, so this pretend to be fun and entertaining especially for me, in the first place, so if stop being it, I’ll stop and put at end to this relationship.  😂 
It can be fun but it can also be a disaster so we’ll see what happens, it will surely be interesting. I hope you like the idea and decide to join me in this space adventure. 🥰 
Now without further ado, let’s start! 🚀  Continue reading “Top 5 || Sci-Fi Books I Want to Read in 2020 🚀”

The ocean is uncontrollable and dangerous. But to the sirens who swim the warm island waters, it’s a home more than worth protecting from the humans and their steam-propelled ships. Between their hypnotic voices and the strength of their powerful tails, sirens have little to fear.

That is, until the ruthless pirate captain, Kian, creates a device to cancel out their songs.

Perle was the first siren captured, and while all since have either been sold or killed, Kian still keeps them prisoner. Though their song is muted and their tail paralyzed, Perle’s hope for escape rekindles as another pirating vessel seizes Kian’s ship. This new captain seems different, with his brilliant smile and his promises that Kian will never again be Perle’s master. But he’s still a human, and a captor in his own way. The compassion he and his rag-tag human family show can’t be sincere… or can it?

Soon it becomes clear that Kian will hunt Perle relentlessly, taking down any siren in her path. As the tides turn, Perle must decide whether to run from Kian forever, or ride the forming wave into battle, hoping their newfound human companions will fight with them.
