Hello Fellow Readers,
Hope you are safe and keeping well.
It was a weird week for me, I was adjusting to my new role/WFH routine. My brain is not so young anymore. I had to take in so much new information these last two days I slept like a rock.
Anyway, enough about me. There are two sequels coming out this month, signalling the end of two duologies:
Ever since Nor was forced to go to a nearby kingdom in her sister’s place, she’s wanted nothing more than to return to the place and people she loves. But when her wish comes true, she soon finds herself cast out from both worlds, with a war on the horizon.
As an old enemy resurfaces more powerful than ever, Nor will have to keep the kingdom from falling apart with the help of Prince Talin and Nor’s twin sister, Zadie. There are forces within the world more mysterious than any of them ever guessed—and they’ll need to stay alive long enough to conquer them…
The first book is sitting on my TBR since last year. I mean, magic, mermaids? this sounds like my cup of tea. The first book follows a young woman from a village on the sea who must impersonate her twin on land to save everyone she loves from a tyrannical prince. I am diligently waiting for the paperback of the first book to dive in. The sequel Kingdom of Sea and Stone is out on 6 October. If you have read the first one, let me know your thoughts!
The doorway between the magical Visempirum and the human world has been reopened. Paladin are once more living in the citadel where Zuhra and Inara grew up completely isolated by the magical hedge that trapped them there. Amidst the brewing conflict between the Paladin and humans looms the threat of Barloc, who has stolen Inara’s immense power and continues to elude the Paladin who are desperately searching for him.
In this sequel to Sisters of Shadow and Light, Inara and Zuhra must navigate the treacherous paths of self-discovery, their love for each other, and for the boys who have captured their hearts. Together, they search for the strength within themselves to bridge the divide between the two worlds they inhabit, even as war threatens to destroy everything—and everyone—they love.
Another title I am curious to read because I never came across anything from this writer. Sara B. Larson is the best-selling and critically acclaimed author of the YA fantasy Defy trilogy and the Dark Breaks The Dawn duology. I’ve heard mixed reviews about the Sisters of Shadow and Light duology, hence, I am keeping this title on my radar. Warriors of Wing and Flame is out on 27 October.
Which sequel are you looking forward to reading?
Did you read any of these duologies?
