What are you reading this week?
This week I’m finishing up The Becoming by Nora Roberts (The Dragon Heart Legacy #2). I made a lot of progress over a productive weekend. With less than 200 pages to go I should finish in about another two days.
ABOUT: The world of magick and the world of man have long been estranged from one another. But some can walk between the two–including Breen Siobhan Kelly. She has just returned to Talamh, with her friend, Marco, who’s dazzled and disoriented by this realm–a place filled with dragons and faeries and mermaids (but no WiFi, to his chagrin). In Talamh, Breen is not the ordinary young schoolteacher he knew her as. Here she is learning to embrace the powers of her true identity. Marco is welcomed kindly by her people–and by Keegan, leader of the Fey. Keegan has trained Breen as a warrior, and his yearning for her has grown along with his admiration of her strength and skills.
But one member of Breen’s bloodline is not there to embrace her. Her grandfather, the outcast god Odran, plots to destroy Talamh–and now all must unite to defeat his dark forces. There will be losses and sorrows, betrayal and bloodshed. But through it, Breen Siobhan Kelly will take the next step on the journey to becoming all that she was born to be.
Summer is here and it’s time to get a start on my summer reading. So today, I’m also going to start House of Beating Wings by Olivia Wildenstein (The Kingdom of Crows #1), which now has an amazing cover to go with it! It’s the start of a brand new, new adult fantasy series and close to 500 pages!
Way back in December I got to read and review an early excerpt of the prologue and first chapter – I was hooked! So I’m excited to begin a bit of it today.
ABOUT: Free the crows, Fallon, and they will make you queen.
Until an oracle predicted my regal future, I’d never imagined myself rising above the curve of my round ears. After all, I was the magicless halfling loved by beasts but loathed by every pure-blooded faerie at court. Well . . . by all but one.
Dante Regio, prince of Luce, had owned my heart since he gave me my first kiss. If gathering a slew of iron relics could help me overthrow the current monarch and crown his brother to rule at my side, then treasure hunting I’d go.
If only the oracle had warned me what winged demon I was releasing into the world.
And that I’d become this demon’s obsession.
And, as you may recall, I’m starting Wild Sign by Patricia Briggs (Alpha & Omega #6). This installment has been out for over a year now, but I borrowed it from the library, so it’s only now that I’ve found the right time to read it.
I’ve enjoyed the series thus far and continue to love Anna and Charles. I’ve read all the books with huge chunks of time in between that I don’t remember a lot of details nor can guess what the end game is for this series. But you can’t go wrong with werewolf shifters, especially ones by this long-time author.
ABOUT: Mated werewolves Charles Cornick and Anna Latham must discover what could make an entire community disappear — before it’s too late — in this thrilling entry in the #1 New York Times bestselling Alpha and Omega series.
In the wilds of the Northern California mountains, all the inhabitants of a small town have gone missing. It’s as if the people picked up and left everything they owned behind. Fearing something supernatural might be going on, the FBI taps a source they’ve consulted in the past: the werewolves Charles Cornick and Anna Latham. But Charles and Anna soon find a deserted town is the least of the mysteries they face.
Death sings in the forest, and when it calls, Charles and Anna must answer. Something has awakened in the heart of the California mountains, something old and dangerous — and it has met werewolves before.
Those are my reading plans this week. Should be interesting trying to read three books at once. Busy as a bee I will be. But this busy bookish bee shall persevere!
Have a great week, everyone!
