A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J Maas | An emotionally impactful journey

 Nesta Archeron has always been prickly-proud, swift to anger, and slow to forgive. And ever since being forced into the Cauldron and becoming High Fae against her will, she's struggled to find a place for herself within the strange, deadly world she inhabits. Worse, she can't seem to move past the horrors of the war with Hybern and all she lost in it.

The one person who ignites her temper more than any other is Cassian, the battle-scarred warrior whose position in Rhysand and Feyre's Night Court keeps him constantly in Nesta's orbit. But her temper isn't the only thing Cassian ignites. The fire between them is undeniable, and only burns hotter as they are forced into close quarters with each other.

Meanwhile, the treacherous human queens who returned to the Continent during the last war have forged a dangerous new alliance, threatening the fragile peace that has settled over the realms. And the key to halting them might very well rely on Cassian and Nesta facing their haunting pasts.

Against the sweeping backdrop of a world seared by war and plagued with uncertainty, Nesta and Cassian battle monsters from within and without as they search for acceptance-and healing-in each other's arms.


Rating: 4.5/5

A Sky Beyond the Storm | Beautiful but Painful {Yomna's Post}

 

Prepare for the jaw-dropping finale of Sabaa Tahir's beloved New York Times bestselling An Ember in the Ashes fantasy series, and discover: Who will survive the storm?

Picking up just a few months after A Reaper at the Gates left off...

The long-imprisoned jinn are on the attack, wreaking bloody havoc in villages and cities alike. But for the Nightbringer, vengeance on his human foes is just the beginning.

At his side, Commandant Keris Veturia declares herself Empress, and calls for the heads of any and all who defy her rule. At the top of the list? The Blood Shrike and her remaining family.

Laia of Serra, now allied with the Blood Shrike, struggles to recover from the loss of the two people most important to her. Determined to stop the approaching apocalypse, she throws herself into the destruction of the Nightbringer. In the process, she awakens an ancient power that could lead her to victory--or to an unimaginable doom.

And deep in the Waiting Place, the Soul Catcher seeks only to forget the life--and love--he left behind. Yet doing so means ignoring the trail of murder left by the Nightbringer and his jinn. To uphold his oath and protect the human world from the supernatural, the Soul Catcher must look beyond the borders of his own land. He must take on a mission that could save--or destroy--all that he knows.

The Queen of Nothing | A satisfying and enjoyable finale {Yomna's Post}


My rating: 5/5

This is the finale to The Folk of the Air series by Holly Black. It is a YA fantasy series following a character called Jude, a human living in the midst of a fae world and struggling to prove herself. If you're into political intrigue, scheming, a fast-paced plot, and morally-grey characters that win your heart nonetheless, this book is totally for you. I have really enjoyed this series and whole-heartedly recommend it for all fantasy lovers out there.

Heart of Thorns by Bree Barton | An Unexpected Delight


Guy, what a cool tagline: Trust your heart, even if it kills you. 

Just a disclaimer, when I say in the title that this is an "unexpected delight", I don't mean that this is a book that someone would not think is interesting based on the synopsis and cover (which are really good), it's only because there were a few mixed reviews about this book. 

My rating: 4/5

Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor | What a fantastic read {Yomna's Review}

I enjoyed this book very much. My rating is 4.5/5. It got me out of a giant reading slump and I am so grateful for that. I read Laini Taylor's A Daughter of Smoke and Bone series and really enjoyed it, although I found this book even better in terms of writing. This is such a beautifully written book I was so impressed.
