Hello Fellow Readers,

How are you? I hope you are always keeping safe and warm. It’s finally the weekend and the sun is shining! After spending a couple of hours reading in bed and blogging, I think I’ll take advantage of this rare spell of warm weather and go out for a walk. First, let’s catch up on the sequels coming out this month.

All The Tides of Fate (All The Stars and Teeth #2) – Adalyn Grace

Through blood and sacrifice, Amora Montara has conquered a rebellion and taken her rightful place as queen of Visidia. Now, with the islands in turmoil and the people questioning her authority, Amora cannot allow anyone to see her weaknesses.

No one can know about the curse in her bloodline. No one can know that she’s lost her magic. No one can know the truth about the boy who holds the missing half of her soul.

To save herself and Visidia, Amora embarks on a desperate quest for a mythical artifact that could fix everything―but it comes at a terrible cost. As she tries to balance her loyalty to her people, her crew, and the desires of her heart, Amora will soon discover that the power to rule might destroy her.

I have my copy of All The Tides of Fate waiting in my bookshelf section of “physical TBR pile”. I loved the first book, it was such an interesting story of magic and pirates – you can read my review of All The Stars and Teeth here. I can’t wait to read the ending of this duology! The second book is out on 2 February.

Reaper of Souls (Kingdom of Souls #2) – Rena Barron

After so many years yearning for the gift of magic, Arrah has the one thing she’s always wanted—at a terrible price. Now the last surviving witchdoctor, she’s been left to pick up the shattered pieces of a family that betrayed her, a kingdom in shambles, and long-buried secrets about who she is.

Desperate not to repeat her mother’s mistakes, Arrah must return to the tribal lands to search for help from the remnants of her parents’ people. But the Demon King’s shadow looms closer than she thinks. And as Arrah struggles to unravel her connection to him, defeating him begins to seem more and more impossible—if it’s something she can bring herself to do at all.

I don’t think this title needs much introduction. Reaper of Souls is the most awaited sequel of this month. The second book of Kingdom of Souls is the epic sequel of this tale of voodoo and folk magic. It will be available on 16 February.

Liberté (Enchantée #2) – Gita Trelease

Camille Durbonne gambled everything she had to keep herself and her sister safe. But as the people of Paris starve and mobs riot, safety may no longer be possible…

…Not when Camille lives for the rebellion. In the pamphlets she prints, she tells the stories of girls living at society’s margins. But as her writings captivate the public, she begins to suspect a dark magic she can’t control lies at the heart of her success. Then Louis XVI declares magic a crime and all magicians traitors to France. As bonfires incinerate enchanted books and special police prowl the city, the time for magic—and those who work it—is running out.

In this new Paris where allegiances shift and violence erupts, the answers Camille seeks set her on a perilous path, one that may cost her the boy she loves―even her life. If she can discover who she truly is before vengeful forces unmask her, she may still win this deadly game of revolution.

In case you are confused by the cover like I was, Liberté is the sequel to Enchantée, and they are also known respectively as Everything That Burns and All That Glitters. I guess the publisher opted to relaunch this duology with different titles. Liberté is out on 2 February.

Curse of the Divine (Ink in the Blood #2) – Kim Smejkal

Return to the world of inklings, tattoo magic, and evil deities as Celia uncovers the secrets of the ink in order to stop Diavala once and for all. This eagerly anticipated sequel to Ink in the Blood is perfect for fans of Leigh Bardugo and Wicked Saints.

Celia Sand faced Diavala and won, using ink magic to destroy the corrupt religion of Profeta that tormented her for a decade. But winning came with a cost. Now Celia is plagued with guilt over her role in the death of her best friend. When she discovers that Diavala is still very much alive and threatening Griffin, the now-infamous plague doctor, Celia is desperate not to lose another person she loves to the deity’s wrath.

The key to destroying Diavala may lie with Halycon Ronnea, the only other person to have faced Diavala and survived. But Halcyon is dangerous and has secrets of his own, ones that involve the ink that Celia has come to hate. Forced to choose between the ink and Diavala, Celia will do whatever it takes to save Griffin—even if it means making a deal with the devil himself.

Curse of the Divine is the sequel of Ink in The Blood, a story of tattoo magic, inklings and evil deities. This duology has been pitched for fans of Leigh Bardugo and Wicked Saints. Have you read it? The sequel and ending of the Ink in The Blood duology is out on 2 February.

That’s it for this week.

Next Saturday, I’ll post a list of all the series ending this month.

Which sequel are you most excited to read?
