Since we’re supposed to stay inside because of the virus that is going around, I will have a lot of free time to read and write some reviews. I got a few books I want to review. I’ll list them up. I’ll probably read and review more books than these four but I don’t know yet which ones.
Of Rioters & Royals by m.l. greye
The story is about Emry and Emry is a Royal – a princess of Enlennd. As is tradition, she must have a knight at her side as her protector. The only way to appoint one is through The Trials. Her Challengers from the five regions of Enlennd must compete for the infamous title of Princess’s Knight. The problem, though, is that the people of Enlennd are split into two categories: Rioters and Royals. Finding the perfect knight may be the last of her worries. War is coming to Enlennd.
Declan is a Rioter. An upriser. An anarchist. He mistrusts the Jewels – the sovereign family of Enlennd. Yet, he is offering himself up as a Challenger in The Trials. The Mistress, leader of the Rioters, has a mission for him. The first step is for him to become the Princess’s Knight. He is ready for the task, until he actually meets Emry and discovers that betraying her would be much more difficult than he’d thought.
Gids Naar Nergens by Ruben Sinnaeve (review will be in Dutch since the book is in Dutch)
Een meisje vindt een vreemd boek in een verboden bos. De volgende dag krijgt ze een raadselachtig bericht en belandt ze in een andere wereld. Het is geen veilig wonderland. Ze moet er vechten om te overleven en weet niet wie ze kan vertrouwen. Zij wil gewoon terug naar huis, maar er werken machten achter de schermen met andere plannen, en in al die samenzweringen staat zij centraal: Lieze, het stille meisje met het bijzondere boek.
Fantastische wezens, spectaculaire gevechten en bijzondere vriendschappen. Gids naar Nergens is één groot avontuur.
See These Bones by Chris Tullbane
Some superheroes want to save the world. Damian is just hoping to save himself.
In the post-Break world of superpowers, necromancy is the one gift nobody wants. Everyone knows what happens to Crows; they go mad and they go bad. That’s the story of infamous mass murderers like Crimson Death, Gravedigger, and Sally Cemetery. It’s also the story of David Jameson, an otherwise unremarkable man who came home one day and killed his wife, orphaning their five-year-old son, Damian.
Thirteen years later, Damian has inherited more than just grey eyes and a beak of a nose from his father. He too is a Crow, doomed to become a killer unless he can find a way to avoid the violent madness endemic to his powers. When a Finder offers enrollment at Los Angeles’ Academy of Superheroes, he jumps at the chance, believing training could be the key to changing his fate. His classmates despise him, the majority of his teachers want him expelled, and his mom’s ghost hasn’t said a word since reappearing when he was nine, but Damian isn’t the kind to give up. He’s going to take control of his destiny or die in the process.
It’s that or end up like his father.
The elementals have decided they’re gods, and humans are nothing but fuel for their fire.
Merciless drought withers Kira’s ranch, leaving her family hungry—and desperate enough to cross the border into the forbidden forest to trap wild game.
But the forest is infested with tree-scorpions and giant cats that wield elemental invisibility, and they’re hungry, too. When Kira mistakes one elemental creature for another, she ends up with the last thing she wants in her trap: an enemy soldier.
Ryon can’t afford to be a prisoner of war. If the Malaano Empire extracts his secrets, the rumors of war will be confirmed—and the tribes stand little chance against the Empire unless they can put aside generations of bad blood for the sake of a Tribal Alliance.
When Ryon’s escape leaves Kira injured and her livelihood in flames, Ryon must choose between aiding her… or returning to his chieftess with vital information. But can he survive the trek when an elemental pursues him for his rejected heritage?
Imperial Princess Vylia is given a powerful ancient stone as her wavesinger trials approach. But is the stone’s whispering voice from the water goddess, or a masquerading elemental the creator god imprisoned millennia ago?
When Vylia’s diplomatic mission to the tribal lands erupts in fiery revenge, she, Kira, and Ryon must work together to survive—or become pawns in the battle of the gods.
