Synopsis:
In the highly anticipated finale to the Bone Witch trilogy, Tea’s life—and the fate of the kingdoms—hangs in the balance.
Tea is a bone witch with the dark magic needed to raise the dead.

But Tea’s quest to conjure a shadowglass—to achieve immortality for the one person she loves most in the world—threatens to consume her heart.

Tea’s black heartsglass only grows darker with each new betrayal. And when she is left with new blood on her hands, Tea must answer to a power greater than the elder asha or even her conscience…

Unboxing

Unboxing The Wicked King Limited Edition Box from OwlCrate

TWCWKBLook no one should be surprised when I say I finished work early the day the OwlCrate Limited Edition Wicked King box went on sale! The cost was more than I’d like to admit for shipping to the UK but its honestly one of the best boxes I’ve purchased.

Honestly we can all blame Toasty for gifting me her OwlCrate copy of The Cruel Prince as that pretty much solidified a purchase of The Wicked King cover to match. At this point if they don’t do one for The Queen of Nothing then I might, I dunno, do something inspired by Jude’s antics.

I know this is a pretty late unboxing but I wanted to make sure enough time had passed that this wouldn’t be a spoiler for anyone! Keep reading to find out what was inside and what I thought of the items. Continue reading “Unboxing The Wicked King Limited Edition Box from OwlCrate”

ARC Review: Enchantée by Gita Trelease – #Gifted

Enchantée by Gita Trelease

Length: 480 pages
Published on 21st February 2019 by Macmillan Childrens Books

Received for free from publisher in exchange for an honest review

Synopsis: Paris in 1789 is a labyrinth of twisted streets, filled with beggars, thieves, revolutionaries—and magicians…

When smallpox kills her parents, Camille Durbonne must find a way to provide for her frail, naive sister while managing her volatile brother. Relying on petty magic—la magie ordinaire—Camille painstakingly transforms scraps of metal into money to buy the food and medicine they need. But when the coins won’t hold their shape and her brother disappears with the family’s savings, Camille must pursue a richer, more dangerous mark: the glittering court of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette.

With dark magic forbidden by her mother, Camille transforms herself into the ‘Baroness de la Fontaine’ and is swept up into life at the Palace of Versailles, where aristocrats both fear and hunger for la magie. There, she gambles at cards, desperate to have enough to keep herself and her sister safe. Yet the longer she stays at court, the more difficult it becomes to reconcile her resentment of the nobles with the enchantments of Versailles. And when she returns to Paris, Camille meets a handsome young balloonist—who dares her to hope that love and liberty may both be possible.

But la magie has its costs. And when Camille loses control of her secrets, the game she’s playing turns deadly. Then revolution erupts, and she must choose—love or loyalty, democracy or aristocracy, freedom or magic—before Paris burns…
