What is the last book you took your sweet time finishing?
I’m so grateful that I didn’t rush this one. The pressure to get through books in a few days often takes the joy out reading them. But by taking my time and savoring every page, @victoriaaveyard once again reminded me why I fell in love with stories.
Spindle touched or spindle rotten, there is something in this book for everyone. And dare I say my new favorite assassin. Filled with legends, adventures, pirates, assassins, queens and knights, witches and gods. This book has it all!
Aveyard once again crafted a complex story tapestry that had me guessing and speculating throughout. Although most of this book is simply a build up, it is well paced and very descriptive. I found myself marveling at these majestic, ancient cities she so perfectly created.
I can’t wait to see what else she has in store for us, as the biggest part of the story is yet to unfold. But based on what I know of her, I am assuming she will take us on yet another roller-coaster as only she can.
About this book:
A strange darkness grows in Allward.
Even Corayne an-Amarat can feel it, tucked away in her small town at the edge of the sea.
She soon discovers the truth: She is the last of an ancient lineage—and the last hope to save the world from destruction. But she won’t be alone. Even as darkness falls, she is joined by a band of unlikely companions:
A squire, forced to choose between home and honor.
An immortal, avenging a broken promise.
An assassin, exiled and bloodthirsty.
An ancient sorceress, whose riddles hide an eerie foresight.
A forger with a secret past.
A bounty hunter with a score to settle.
Together they stand against a vicious opponent, invincible and determined to burn all kingdoms to ash, and an army unlike anything the realm has ever witnessed.
Blade Breaker is set to release August 2022
