A burning vengeanceWell, it may not have been quite that dramatic (Oh the ANGST,) but it was close. I mean, it releases on my birthday (April 5th for those who want to send gifts), so FLAMECASTER and I are obviously made for each other!
Adrian sul'Han, known as Ash, is a trained healer with a powerful gift of magic—and a thirst for revenge. The son of the queen of the Fells, Ash is forced into hiding after a series of murders throws the queendom into chaos. Now Ash is closer than he's ever been to killing the man responsible, the cruel king of Arden. As a healer, can Ash use his powers not to save a life, but to take it?
A blood-based curse
Abandoned at birth, Jenna Bandelow was told the mysterious magemark on the back of her neck would one day make her a target. But when the King's Guard launches a relentless search for a girl with a mark like hers, Jenna assumes that it has more to do with her role as a saboteur than any curse. Though Jenna doesn't know why she's being hunted, she knows that she can't get caught.
Destiny's fiery hand
Thrown together by chance and joined by their hatred of the ruthless king, Ash and Jenna will come to rescue each other in ways they cannot yet imagine.
Set in the world of the acclaimed Seven Realms series, a generation later, this is a thrilling story of dark magic, chilling threats, and two unforgettable characters walking a knife-sharp line between life and death.
I have already read this book, and guys . . . Cinda Williams Chima is a FANTASY GODDESS! I cannot wait to share this book with the world. It. Is. Awesome.
If you haven't read her other series, starting with The Demon King, I highly recommend it. I mean HIGHLY. Like so highly that there is no higher high than the highly I recommend!! But, this is a new series, so you don't have to have read The Seven Realms to start this one!
