Synopsis

In the shade of a tower hidden in the Realm of the Gods grows a sacred tree tied to all life in Phalyra. Entrusted with its protection, Raziela—the last surviving priestess of the Great Mother, Naiara—spends her days honing herself into a weapon worthy to serve the goddess.

Meanwhile, mankind is turning from the old ways. Now the tree is dying and time is running out. Hoping to save it by rekindling the people’s faith, a desperate Raziela commits an act of sacrilege to perform a miracle.

But when the disillusioned Phalyrians receive a gift from the gods, they send their most ruthless mercenary to hunt down its source. His arrival forces Raziela to question everything she knows. As the two execute a careful dance of secrets and hard truths, they pit the fate of humanity against the wrath of the goddess.

Synopsis

Seth Reid has an unexpected visitor who may not be from our world.

A mysterious, pale girl who shows up at the local pool, turns out to be a Viking named Osma from one of the Four Worlds of Life. She beckons Seth to return and help Madidus—a world covered in half-water and half-ice that is being invaded by dark shadows. The only ones who can stop the shadows are the Mer—an entire civilization that’s been frozen in stone for hundreds of years.

Before Seth can unlock the mystery of the Mer, Osma goes missing. He seeks her out in the Void—the one place he swore never to return. There, the dark figure shows Seth that the board members have been keeping a secret from the descendants—a deadly one. But can Seth trust his dark counterpart?

Seth begins to doubt the friendships he’s forged, questioning even the honesty of the Board Members who seem to give him only as much information as they feel he needs to know. If he doesn’t free the Mer, then Madidus will be lost. But if he frees Madidus, what will he have to sacrifice in return?

And if Seth believes the darkness, then who is the real traitor?

Publisher: Snowy Wings Publishing

An emboldened merman. The daring girl who agreed to be his champion. The upcoming battle that threatens to change everything they believe in.

Ivy Sheppard never wanted the ability to turn into a mermaid—though her wicked ice powers are nothing to sneeze at. Now her step-sister is her enemy, the fairy she once trusted may not be the ally she hoped for, and her new boyfriend wants her to transfer schools to avoid the vampires taking over Union High. Between dodging parents’ concerns, pretending she can stand to even look at the step-sister who sided with the bloodsuckers, and still aiming to end it all without violence, Ivy is in over her head. Unfortunately, these ancient enemies are itching to get the conflict started and Ivy may have no choice but to become the warrior the merfolk need her to be.

The second book in the Blood, Bloom, & Water series starts the war between fangs and fins in earnest as the merfolk plan their assault to bring down the unnatural undead vampires once and for all.

Blogger Bubble #5: 5 Books You Should Read for Pride Month

Hi, everyone!

I’m sorry I keep being MIA, but school ends this week and I hope I will have more free time to read books and write reviews. Anyway, since June is Pride Month I decided to recommend 5 LGBTQ+ books that I highly enjoyed, plus I have an announcement at the end of the post.

Song-of-Achilles-21

Obviously I couldn’t not put this book on the list. This book gave me all the feels, it even made me cry! It is heart-gripping and one of the most wonderful books I’ve read this year. You can read my review here.

LetsTalkAboutLove

Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann is the story of this asexual girl who is trying to fit in a society where sex is considered the “normality”, though the story mainly focuses on the love story. You can read my review here.

Simon-vs-the-Homo-Sapien-Agenda

Honestly, I don’t think anyone has never heard of this book, especially after its movie’s release. It was such a fluffy read!  You can read my review here.

30237061

Amanda Foody is one of my most favorite authors and she recently released Ace of Shades, which I haven’t read yet. Many people forget that the main male character of Daughter of The Burning City is asexual. You can read my review here.

28245707

Queens of Geek is dual POV contemporary romance and one of the two narrators is bisexual. You can read my review here.

I wanted to say is that I created a Redbubble page and the first design I made is the following image. I know is nothing fancy, but I love it and the shop will help me with paying my exams for college. If you want to buy it, or know people who would like to snatch one for themselves, click here!

Happy Pride Month to everyone!

Be kind. Be pride.
