Unraveling Books: Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch

Snow Like Ashes by Sarah Raasch
Release Date: October 14th, 2014
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Genre: Fantasy
Level: YA

Goodreads Summary:

A heartbroken girl. A fierce warrior. A hero in the making.

Sixteen years ago the Kingdom of Winter was conquered and its citizens enslaved, leaving them without magic or a monarch. Now, the Winterians’ only hope for freedom is the eight survivors who managed to escape, and who have been waiting for the opportunity to steal back Winter’s magic and rebuild the kingdom ever since.

Orphaned as an infant during Winter’s defeat, Meira has lived her whole life as a refugee, raised by the Winterians’ general, Sir. Training to be a warrior—and desperately in love with her best friend, and future king, Mather — she would do anything to help her kingdom rise to power again.

So when scouts discover the location of the ancient locket that can restore Winter’s magic, Meira decides to go after it herself. Finally, she’s scaling towers, fighting enemy soldiers, and serving her kingdom just as she’s always dreamed she would. But the mission doesn’t go as planned, and Meira soon finds herself thrust into a world of evil magic and dangerous politics – and ultimately comes to realize that her destiny is not, never has been, her own.

Blog Tour: Follow Me Through Darkness by Danielle Ellison {Fantasy Cast+Giveaway}

So excited to be part of this blog tour. In case you haven't heard of this book, check out what it's all about before you see all the pretty boys Danielle Ellison, the author, chose that could be casted as Thorne :D 

Follow Me Through Darkness (The Boundless Trilogy, #1)Follow Me Through Darkness by Danielle Ellison
Release Date: Oct. 21st, 2014
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Genre: Dystopian
Goodreads Summary:
The truth won't always set you free.

Less than a year ago, Neely Ambrose’s biggest worry was having the freedom to follow a path that wasn't chosen for her.

Less than a year ago, she believed she could trust the Elders who said they had everyone’s best interest at heart and who said they were keeping them safe from the outside.

Sixty days ago, she discovered what they had planned for everyone she loved—and that all of it centered around her.
Now she’s on the run through a dangerous wasteland full of killing machines, secret organizations, and people who want to sell her back to the Elders for their own safety. The whole world outside the Compound is living proof that everything in Neely’s life was a lie manufactured by the Elders, which may even include the boy she loves.

All Neely wants is the truth, but each new piece of it drives her further from what she thought she knew. With only forty days until everyone she loves falls under the Elders’ mind control, Neely must decipher who to trust, what questions to ask, and how to get one step ahead of the Elders, who will do anything to keep their secrets buried.

The Thing About Books: Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas

Ooook so this is the first time we're doing a book discussion for a book one of us has already reviewed and of course it would be HEIR OF FIRE by Sarah J Maas. So if you haven't read the series or HoF yet GO READ IT. NOW. And if you have, join us as we vent about some stuff from the book. Also since we were short on time, we didn't talk as much as we would have liked to so we mainly kind of focused on the characters than anything else.

Goodreads Summary:
Lost and broken, Celaena Sardothien’s only thought is to avenge the savage death of her dearest friend: as the King of Adarlan’s Assassin, she is bound to serve this tyrant, but he will pay for what he did. Any hope Celaena has of destroying the king lies in answers to be found in Wendlyn. Sacrificing his future, Chaol, the Captain of the King’s Guard, has sent Celaena there to protect her, but her darkest demons lay in that same place. If she can overcome them, she will be Adarlan’s biggest threat – and his own toughest enemy. 

While Celaena learns of her true destiny, and the eyes of Erilea are on Wendlyn, a brutal and beastly force is preparing to take to the skies. Will Celaena find the strength not only to win her own battles, but to fight a war that could pit her loyalties to her own people against those she has grown to love?
