Hi everyone! So today I will present you a book that have been on my TBR for a long time and also another exciting news: A giveaway.
That book is (if you haven’t guessed already because of the title) The Swordmaster by Rose Reid. Check out her blog:Rose’s reid. She blogs about her reviews, her books and even some giveaways. You should check her blog out and give a follow 🙂
Now let’s talk about the book:
The Swordmaster is the prequel of The Afterlight Chronicles and it was released the 30th August. So you can get your own copy today. If you guys haven’t heard about the first book in the Afterlight Chronicles, its title is “Crown of Crimson”.
Synopsis of Crown of Crimson:
First Rule of the Cannon: Trust no one.
Aerietta Elony is destined for evil.
Born into a royal family, it was quickly discovered that she bore the Jezdah mark — an intricate tattoo meant to identify the Children of the Elements. To make sure his people never knew about the danger that hid in their midst, the king had his daughter sent to the leader of the Cannon, his order of assassins, where she would learn to become one of them.
No one was ever supposed to know what Aerietta was, where she came from, or what she was destined to become. She’s never worried what would happen if someone discovered her secrets. But when a neighboring kingdom attacks, and Aerietta is betrayed and captured, keeping her secret will mean the difference between life and death.
When the king of the neighboring land enlists her services to track down one of her traitor companions, she has no choice but to accept. But in order to find her former friend and make it back to the king with her head still attached to her shoulders, she’ll have to keep the enigmatic, inhuman Swordmaster in the dark, which proves to be more difficult than she could ever imagine.
Deception abounds, danger is just as prevalent, but even in this world of demons and magic, the only thing Aerietta fears is herself.
The Queen of Crimson accepts.
Synopsis of The Swordmaster:
In Evrallon, skeletons have a way of escaping their closets. Before he captured Aerietta. Before he was betrayed by the princess. Before he became the Swordmaster.
He still had secrets. Lyom Livingstone wasn’t supposed to live to the age of twenty-two. He’s never touched a sword in his life.
He’s known as the reckless, impulsive kid Blancathey can’t get rid of. Get trapped in Rose Reid’s spellbinding prequel to Crown of Crimson. Learn the secrets the Children have been guarding, discover the truth behind Evrallon’s history, and uproot the hidden past the Swordmaster has done everything to bury.
