Hi everybody! I’m a day late for Stacking the Shelves this weekend but I’ve been ordering a lot recently while in lockdown so I thought I’d post today.
Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zélie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls.
But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope.
Now Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.
Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers and her growing feelings for an enemy.
I was given the second book in this series through work, so I’ve decided to pick up the first one so I can read it soon.
Chaol Westfall has always defined himself by his unwavering loyalty, his strength, and his position as the Captain of the Guard. But all of that has changed since Aelin shattered the glass castle, since Chaol’s men were slaughtered, since the King of Adarlan spared him from a killing blow, but left his body broken.
Now he and Nesryn sail for Antica – the stronghold of the southern continent’s mighty empire and of the legendary healers of the Torre Cesme. It’s Chaol’s one shot at recovery, and with war looming back home, Dorian and Aelin’s survival could depend on Chaol and Nesryn convincing Antica’s rulers to ally with them.
But what they discover there will change them both – and be more vital to saving Erilea than they could have imagined.
I was also given the rest of this series by a friend but I was missing Tower of Dawn which although doesn’t match the white covers, is actually the 6th book in the series!
With his dying words, H – Jacob’s final connection to his grandfather Abe’s secret life – entrusts Jacob with a mission: Deliver newly contacted peculiar Noor Pradesh to an operative known only as V.
Noor is being hunted. She is the subject of an ancient prophecy, one that foretells a looming apocalypse. Save Noor, save the future of all peculiardom. With only a few bewildering clues to follow, time is running out.
I’ve bought all of these books in hardback so far, so I also decided to pick up the newest one!
