In the majestic halls of a crystal palace lies a secret that could destroy an entire kingdom…

Bryn Aven refuses to give up on her dream of serving the kingdom she loves. It’s a dream that brings her to a whole new realm…and the glittering palace of the Skojare.

The Skojare people need protection from the same brutal enemy that’s been threatening the Kanin, and Bryn is there to help. Being half Skojare herself, it’s also a chance for her to learn more about her lost heritage. Her boss, Ridley Dresden, is overseeing her mission, but as their undeniable attraction heats up, their relationship is about to reach a whole new level—one neither of them is prepared for.

As they delve deeper into the Skojare world, they begin to unravel a long-hidden secret. The dark truth about her own beloved Kanin kingdom is about to come to light, and it will change her place in it forever…and threaten everyone she loves.

This isn’t as exciting as the first book but still super good. I’ve got about 100 pages left so I’ll probably finish it by the end of the day.


clash of kingsA Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin

In this eagerly awaited sequel to A Game of Thrones, George R.R. Martin has created a work of unsurpassed vision, power, and imagination. A Clash of Kings transports us to a world of revelry and revenge, wizardry and warfare unlike any you have ever experienced.

A comet the colour of blood and flame cuts across the sky. And from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war. It is a tale in which brother plots against brother and the dead rise to walk at night. Here a princess masquerades as an orphan boy; a knight of the mind prepares a poison for a treacherous sorceress; and wild men descend from the Mountains of the Moon to ravage the countryside. Against a backdrop of incest and fratricide, alchemy and murder, victory may go to the men and women possessed of the coldest steel…and the coldest hearts. For when kings clash, the whole land trembles.

Audacious, inventive, brilliantly imagined, A Clash of Kings is a novel of dazzling beauty and boundless enchantment—a tale of pure excitement you will never forget.

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to start this because I’m actually really enjoying it. I’m thinking about doing a chapter by chapter thing here on my blog for this book but I’m not sure. Anyways this book is probably going to take me  a while to get through so I’m not going to add it to my WWW every week.

What did you recently finish reading?

Re-reading this, it wasn’t as good as I remembered.


frostfireFrostfire by Amanda Hocking

Bryn Aven is an outcast among the Kanin, the most powerful of the troll tribes.

Set apart by her heritage and her past, Bryn is a tracker who’s determined to become a respected part of her world. She has just one goal: become a member of the elite King’s Guard to protect the royal family. She’s not going to let anything stand in her way, not even a forbidden romance with her boss Ridley Dresden.

But all her plans for the future are put on hold when Konstantin– a fallen hero she once loved – begins kidnapping changelings. Bryn is sent in to help stop him, but will she lose her heart in the process?

I loved this book! The MC really reminds me of Rose Hathaway from Vampire Academy, who is one my favorite characters of all time so that’s most likely why I liked this so much.

Also! Last week I was saying how I wanted to get through these 4 books by this week’s WWW and I’m really proud of myself for doing just that 😀

What do you think you’ll read next?

    Oh no! Sorry to hear that on re-reading the Trylle Trilogy it’s not as good as you remember. Sometimes I think I’d like to re-read books and then worry that they’ll disappoint me the second time 😦

    I’m glad you’re enjoying your current reads (I enjoyed the whole Game of Thrones series, but thought the first 2 books were the best).
