It is once again the end of the month and so the time has come for me to share what I have read this month with all of you lovely readers! I have been in a bit of a reading slump lately and I have been really busy, so I haven’t got much read. None the less there are still a few books on the list…
Welcome to New Vegas.
A city once covered in bling, now blanketed in ice. At the heart of it Natasha Kestal is looking for a way out. Like many, she’s heard of a mythical land where the sun still shines and the waters flow. A place where she won’t be hunted by those who know her darkest secret. Until Nat gets to the Blue, she will never be safe. Not even from the boy entrusted with her life – and her heart.
New Vegas is at war.
Nat has reawakened an ancient power that the authorities will stop at nothing to destroy. After risking her life for the resurgence of magic, she must prepare for a battle that could destroy her world forever. But with so much at stake, she can trust no one – not even the boy she loves.
The Rift is open.
Natasha Kestal is a drakonrydder. Saviour of the Blue. Protector of the Flame. She has won her latest battle, but a greater war lies ahead. Her beloved Wes is dying and the source of all magic may die with him. To save Wes’s life – and their world – Nat must make the ultimate sacrifice. But how will she choose between her duty and her kin?
An ancient and cruel religion, The Purpose, deifies children for their deformities—a beautiful girl with three arms, a brave boy with one eye… the exceptional list goes on. Painted and costumed, they are worshiped on stage. Shy and exposed, they are ridiculed in the streets, often by the same faces. Glorious or repulsive? Gods or freaks? How deep will the identity divide be dredged, and to which side will the truth finally tip? Out of the city, through strange forests and dark dreams, we follow six young friends as they chase their answer. Lightning-lit and pulling moon into mountain, it awaits them at the top of the world.
This trilogy is amazing and really brought me back out of my reading slump. I found them all really captivating and I practically devoured them once I had picked them up. Areh is a slightly different book to what I have read before, but there will be more on that in the coming weeks as I have very kindly been asked to review it! Moving into June I hope to get some more books read. I have another trilogy on my shelf as well as a stand alone book that I bought a few months ago now.
I hope your May reading went a little better than mine and that you continue to find good books to read into June and I will see you all again soon!
Goodbye for now!
Over and Out
