Rating: 5 stars

“You realize I'm just taking you to die?” 

“I hope to disappoint you.” 

“You won't.”

Thankfully Hadrian did disappoint Royce, and thus Riyria was born. After a long and hectic week, getting back to Elan and reading the first adventure of my beloved pair of thieves was like coming home. Thank you, Mr. Sullivan, for giving us another high fantasy mastepiece!

The Queen and the Cure (The Bird and the Sword Chronicles, #2)
21, May

Rating: 5 stars

Genre: Fantasy, Romance, Magic

There once was a man named Kjell of Jeru who was not easy to love.

He had slayed monsters and men, he had bathed his hands in blood and he protected his heart with a shield of stone, afraid to feel, afraid to dream. When he learned he was a Healer, blessed by the Gods, it was not easy for him to find the balance between his sword and the cure he could offer, he could not understand how to care for anyone other than his brother. But one night, under sharp rocks and with sand in his clothes, he met his Fate.

Tiger Lily

Rating: 4 stars

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance, Retellings, Fairytales

“Let me tell you something straight off. This is a love story, but not like any you've ever heard. The boy and the girl are far from innocent. Dear lives are lost. And good doesn't win. In some places, there is something ultimately good about endings. In Neverland, that is not the case.”

My body is not enough to contain the largeness of Tiger Lily's beauty.

Guilty pleasure (n.):

Something pleasurable that induces a usually minor feeling of guilt (probably because you should be doing some serious real-life stuff instead of getting lost in said pleasures).

The Bird and the Sword (The Bird and the Sword Chronicles, #1)
30, Apr

“You don't need wings to fly.”

What you truly need is words. And Amy Harmon's words resulted in a work of sheer beauty, that made your chest clench with yearning and your entire existence float, leaving behind every material attachment and concern.

The Bird and the Sword was a piece of a dream.

“The word is to be prepared. The key will arrive.We must all be ready.”

A conquered kingdom.

A nation on the brink of civil war.

A soldier prince tired of killing.

A lost heir.

And a court full of enemies.

The result? Young Adult fantasy at its finest.

I finished King's Cage a couple of hours ago, and I'm already suffering from withdrawal syndrome and more heartbroken than I care to admit.
