Ansa has always been a fighter.
As a child, she fought the invaders who murdered her parents and snatched her as a raid prize. She fought for her place next to Thyra, the daughter of the Krigere Chieftain. She fought for her status as a warrior in her tribe: blood and victory are her way of life. But the day the Krigere cross the great lake and threaten the witch queen of the Kupari, everything changes.
Cursed by the queen with fire and ice, Ansa is forced to fight against an invisible enemy—the dark magic that has embedded itself deep in her bones. The more she tries to hide it, the more dangerous it becomes. And with the Krigere numbers decimated and the tribe under threat from the traitorous brother of the dead Chieftain, Ansa is torn between her loyalty to the Krigere, her love for Thyra, and her own survival instincts.
With her world in chaos and each side wanting to claim her for their own, only one thing is certain: unless Ansa can control the terrible magic inside her, everything she’s fought for will be destroyed.
Since I decided to take a break from my publication month challenge, I didn’t really read any October releases. Which means that this list is a bit longer than it might have been otherwise, but I still want to share with you all the lovely books that came out last month that I’m excited for!
Set in an alternate world of art deco beauty and steampunk horror, Monstress tells the epic story of Maika Halfwolf, a teenage survivors of a cataclysmic war between humans and their hated enemies, the Arcanics. In the face of oppression and terrible danger, Maika is both hunter and hunted, searching for answers about her mysterious past as those who seek to use her remain just one step behind…and all the while, the monster within begins to awaken…
Collecting: Monstress 1-6
This week, I want to share some of my more recently gathered signatures for my collection. A couple authors are newer favorites, but the other two are new to me.
Apologies for the gap of author signature posts, but life has been pretty hectic and I, honestly, forgot about this weekly post for a couple of weeks.
Anyway, this week’s theme is Childhood Favorites, where I share with you some of the most prized signatures in my collection from authors that I loved as a kid and still like to re-read occasionally.
