Hello Fellow Readers,
Every last Sunday of the month, the Monogamist Reader will provide you with a dedicated post for all the book series coming to an end during the month. This post is a recurring section of this blog, it was originally a list to help me to catch up with my TBR and all the series I am reading.
This list will not include a synopsis of the third book as I wanted to avoid spoilers, in case you are not familiar with the book list. The book recap and link will be about book number one of the series.
I really have fun working on it and love sharing it with you (and adding more books to your TBR!). I hope you find it as useful as it is for me, and if you enjoy this section, don’t forget to share it with your bookish friends.
Aurelia Isendare is a princess of a small kingdom in the North, raised in privilege but shielded from politics as her brother prepares to step up to the throne. Halfway around the world, Athan Dakar, the youngest son of a ruthless general, is a fighter pilot longing for a life away from the front lines. When Athan’s mother is shot and killed, his father is convinced it’s the work of his old rival, the Queen of Etania—Aurelia’s mother. Determined to avenge his wife’s murder, he devises a plot to overthrow the Queen, a plot which sends Athan undercover to Etania to gain intel from her children.
Athan’s mission becomes complicated when he finds himself falling for the girl he’s been tasked with spying upon. Aurelia feels the same attraction, all the while desperately seeking to stop the war threatening to break between the Southern territory and the old Northern kingdoms that control it—a war in which Athan’s father is determined to play a role. As diplomatic ties manage to just barely hold, the two teens struggle to remain loyal to their families and each other as they learn that war is not as black and white as they’ve been raised to believe.
This trilogy sounds super intriguing, a princess raised in a palace, a fighter raised in revolution. I smell enemies to lovers tropes all over those covers, ha. The Glass Alliance trilogy is described as a mix of Code Name Verity and The Winner’s Curse. The last book of this World Wars-inspired trilogy, Southern Sun, Northern Star is out on 20 April.
A lonely princess.
A flying teen.
A kidnapped girl who only remembers what happens at night.
Seventeen-year-old Princess Nora is a frost eater who creates magical ice. Her royal life is luxurious but stifling.
Krey West has a rare magical talent: when he eats feathers, he can fly. His one goal is to find his missing girlfriend, Zeisha. He thinks someone in power abducted her.
Krey’s daring feats of magic earn him an invitation to the palace. Craving adventure and friendship, Nora offers to help him find Zeisha. He’s desperate enough to accept—though he hates the monarchy.
The truth is more terrible than they could imagine.
Every night, Zeisha wakes in a dark room full of sleeping people, unable to remember what she did in the light. Her dreams provide violent glimpses into her forgotten days.
If Krey and Nora can’t save her, Zeisha may lose herself forever.
These covers, wow!! The first book of this trilogy has been on my TBR for ages, I read so many positive reviews praising the magic system of this world, so I couldn’t not add it to my want-to-read list. The last book of The Magic Eaters Trilogy, The Stone Eater, is out on 1 April.
