I hope all you readers are doing brilliantly well! How have you all been? What have you been reading?
This is my first every MailBox Monday, so I’m just going to give a whirl and see where I end up!
The first book I received over the past week was a gift from a favourite author of mine, Sarah Rees Brennan. It is a signed ARC and Signed Bookplate/sticker.
Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan.
Publication Date: 5th April 2016
Tell the Wind & Fire is about a young girl called Lucie who lives in a New York very different from the New York we know: the city is torn between two very different kinds of magic, and Lucie’s own family was torn apart years ago by that conflict. Lucie wears magic rings and carries a burden of guilt she can’t share with anyone.
The light in her life is her sweetheart boyfriend Ethan, but it turns out Ethan has a secret too: a soulless doppelganger created by dark magic, who has to conceal the face identical to Ethan’s with a hood fastened by a collar nobody but a Light magician with magical rings can take off… and who introduces himself to both of them by, for reasons nobody can understand, saving Ethan’s life…
I am so anticipating reading this book, it’s next to read, as I am currently not reading anything at the moment. Also, this is my first ever ARC, so it’s super exciting!
The second book I received was another gift from someone very special to me. (He puts up with my fangirling and reading!)
FireWalker by Josephine Angelini.
Publication Date: 1st September 2015
Worlds divide, magic slays, and love lies in the second book of Josephine Angelini’s The Worldwalker Trilogy.
“You think I’m a monster, but my choices, as ruthless as they seem, are justified.”
Lily is back in her own universe, and she’s ready to start a new life with Rowan by her side. True, she almost died in the Pyre that fueled their escape from New Salem, and must hide her magic for the safety of everyone she cares about, but compared to fighting the Woven, the monstrous creatures inhabiting the alternate Salem, life is looking pretty good.
Unfortunately, Lillian, ruthless ruler of the 13 Cities, is not willing to let Lily go that easily. If she can’t persuade Lily to return to her world, she will force her to come back by doing away with the ones she loves.
