Evenfall delivered Ember right to the portal to Svitanye, and now it’s time to venture into a new land.

Violet fire reigned above. Streaks of pink and dark blue tinted the wispy clouds strewn across the majestic sapphire and purple gradient of the sky; a multitude of hues that set the world alight, yet spoke of soothing darkness on the cusp of its departure. I stood immobile, my fingers wrapped around Ada’s blade and the hollow ache in my chest a constant presence—yet even it seemed to have quieted, as if taken by the beauty. I pressed my bloodied hand to my heart, the other clutching the dagger even tighter. Svitanye. The land of dawn. In the distance, the hazy arch of the sun spread its rays across the horizon and brushed the delicate contours of trees and wild fields. Morning. This was what true morning looked like. It didn’t matter how late the hour was, that it had been evening when we had left Somraque behind. Gazing at this vibrant canvas… I felt something in me awaken.
Sometimes, it’s still hard to believe that Evenfall is an actual book now. This story is incredibly dear to us (I know, I know, all of them are, but really, I/we love each and every new book with everything I/we have), so we decided to do something special…
For the first time, we’re not only putting up a public request form, but giving out e-ARCs as well as physical ones.
If you’re a reviewer/book blogger (from anywhere in the world) who enjoys YA fantasy with a strong romantic undercurrent, you can apply for an ARC through this form.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Evenfall, here’s the blurb:
A monster does not deserve the intimacy of a name
As if waking up in an unfamiliar world isn’t enough of a surprise, Ember gains a new title to her name. Savior.
Hunted by the Crescent Prince and his lethal shadows, she accepts a young Mage’s help to navigate the land of blood magic and its many illusions. But where Ada sees the good in her power, Ember discovers something else.
An icy darkness, designed to take lives, not save them.
The only thing worse than not being able to rely on her senses—or the reality she had once believed to be true—is knowing that she cannot trust her heart. Especially as it seems to draw her to the one person in whose hands she can never fall…
Will Ember escape the thrall of darkness or will she reign in it?
It’s time for another overview of the books I’ve read the previous month. As always, the e-books couldn’t make it to the photo shoot. Unfortunately, I also forgot to include Heart of Iron. That baby was left behind on the shelves, although for the life of me, I can’t figure out what made me miss it when I was putting together my pile 😶
Anyway, here are the titles (an asterisk marks a reread):
💎 A Court of Mist and Fury (Maas)*
💎 Heart of Iron (Poston)
💎 Blood is Forever (Vers)
💎 Endless Knight (Cole)
💎 In the Dark (Taylor)
💎 Something Chosen (Owens)
💎 A Court of Frost and Starlight (Maas)
💎 The House of Gray and Graves (Stunich)
💎 Night Awakens (Walker)
💎 Dead of Winter (Cole)
💎 Chameleon Assassin (Kingsolver)
💎 Magic Waking (Chase)
💎 Arcana Rising (Cole)
💎 The Dark Calling (Cole)
💎 Bloody Thanks (Vers)
💎 Night Rises (Walker)
💎 Sky in the Deep (Young)
This completely awesome travel mug I featured in the photo was included in a previous @fairyloot box.
The Bird marks the end of Andalia’s and Maer’s journey through the secrets, dangers, and history of Lianthe. So I kindly invite you to enter the world of courts and mercenaries, the world of love and deceit one last time, and see what the Winds have in store for the mercenary princess and the heir to Emberya’s throne.
