First 5 Chapters are FREE on Kindle.


Summary (Goodreads)

Surrounded by enemies, the once-great nation of Ravka has been torn in two by the Shadow Fold, a swath of near impenetrable darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh. Now its fate may rest on the shoulders of one lonely refugee.

Alina Starkov has never been good at anything. But when her regiment is attacked on the Fold and her best friend is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power that saves his life—a power that could be the key to setting her war-ravaged country free. Wrenched from everything she knows, Alina is whisked away to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling.

Yet nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. With darkness looming and an entire kingdom depending on her untamed power, Alina will have to confront the secrets of the Grisha…and the secrets of her heart.

This book was phenomenal. I can’t say much more than that. It is definately a must read!

  1. I’m currently looking forward to the release of The Golden Lily the most because though I was unsure about what to expect from Bloodlines I was blown away and I expect no less from book two.

  2. I am really looking forward to “The Reckoning” by Alma Katsu. I simple adored “The Taker” and can’t wait for the story to continue.

  3. The book I’m most looking forward to is Enshadowed by Kelly Creagh! I absolutely loved Nevermore and I cant help but be a sucker for books that are based off of or involve Edgar Allen Poe’s works!!! 😀

  4. I’m most looking forward to The Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare. I need to find out if Tess ends up with Will in the end!

  5. I can’t wait to read Before I Wake by Rachel Vincent!! I can’t wait to see what happens after the twist that happened in If I Die.

  6. I’m looking forward to Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas because the heroine sounds awesome! I’m also looking forward to One Moment by Kristina McBride, because I’ve been trying to read some more YA contemporary, and it sounds very good.
    Thanks for the giveaway 🙂

  7. I can’t wait for Tiger Lily. One, i love it that it’s based on the Tiger Lily from Peter Pan. 2: i love Peter pan. 3: Tiger Lily is my nickname. 😀

  8. I’m so excited for the release of Before I Wake by Rachel Vincent! I absolutely LOVE the Soul Screamers series and can’t wait to read this one!

  9. I am most looking forward to the Crimson Crown by Cinda Williams Chima right now. I can’t wait for that one to come out! I love the series and I really want to know how things end. Hoping for a HEA!!

  10. Endlessly by Kiersten White. I’ve been a fan of the series since Paranormalcy came out and I can’t wait to see how it ends.

  11. I’m most looking forward to Pizza, Love, and Other Stuff That Made Me Famous because it feels like the book was practically made for me. It’s about food, teens, AND a reality show 😀
