YAY!! I am early for the February new Release list! These are 3 books that I am excited about that will be released in February.
The Ruin of Kings – Jenn Lyons
A debut author that is compared to the likes of Patrick Rothfuss and Brandon Sanderson…I am intrigued.
This is a story about an orphan boy who has grown up on the stories and fairytales of destined heros, epic quests and long lost princes. One day he is claimed by the treasonous Prince as his own long lost son! Soon Kihrin finds out that not everything is like the stories.
His new family treats him like a prisoner and a political pawn. Kihrin soon realises that he may not be the chosen one to save his kingdom, but he may be the one destined to destroy it! Sounds cool hey!!
Crown of Feathers – Nicki Pau Preto
Look at this cover and tell me you don’t want this book!! It has a goddamn phoenix on it!! That is not all, oh no my friend, it is about phoenix riders! PHOENIX. RIDERS.
That is all I needed to know. It has fierce queens, a girl disguising herself as a boy, empire’s on the war path! It has everything I want!
I pray that it lives up to my expectations!
Warrior of the Wild – Tricia Levenseller
I have seen this one circulating the Booktube lists for a while now. Why wouldn’t it when the first line in the synopis is “How do you kill a god?”
YASS I am there for that!! This story follows a girl who has been trained by her father to follow his foot steps and lead her village. When she fails her coming-of-age trial she is banished from her village. She may only return once she has won back her honour and killed the god that claims a tribute from her village every year.
I live for impossible quest stories! Reminds me so much of Zuko from Avatar when he was told that he could only regain his honour if he captured that Avatar that has been missing for the past 100 years! I am excited for this one.
There you have it. Those are my three picks for this month. I would have picked Vortex Visions by Elise Kova and Bloodwitch by Susan Dennard, but I wanted to keep my list to books from new series.
Light and Love
