Brand-New Books I'm Dying To Read

Among the many books that are released every week, there are always a few that stand out to me above the rest for one reason or another. I wanted to share with you a few of the ones that have peaked my interest...the ones that I'm simply dying to read.  

This week, both books I'm going to feature are by authors that I read without question every time they release a new book.  These are two authors on my auto-purchase list. If you've never read anything by either of these two, I strongly suggest you give them a chance! 

by Tera Lynn Childs 
Darkly Fae, book two 

Young, beautiful, and royal, Princess Arianne of the Deachair should be the most envied fae in all the realms. But tragedy stole a carefree life from her. Thrust into the role of ruler as a girl, she has spent the last decade struggling to keep her people safe at any cost. With her magic weakened by a devastating curse, strength, will and intelligence are her only powers left to wield. When the full force of the Moraine army marches on her palace, ready for war, she must act quickly to save her clan from total destruction.

As captain of the royal guard, Tearloch Donne considers the protection of the Moraine and their royal family his foremost duty. A duty he failed when a traitor within the palace ranks nearly assassinated the high prince. Now he will do whatever it takes to hunt the villain down and make him pay for his betrayal. But when he volunteers the enemy princess on a quest for answers, he finds himself weighing his duty to his clan against his growing feelings for her and a secret memory they share.

With the fate of two dying clans depending on their success, a proud princess with dangerous secrets and a loyal warrior bent on revenge must embark on a journey that could save them all… or destroy them both.

If you've never read Tera Lynn Childs before, a great place to start would be with Oh.My.Gods a wonderful fantasy based in Greek mythology and one of my favorite summertime re-reads. 

Death Marked
by Leah Cypess
Sequel to Death Sworn

A young sorceress’s entire life has been shaped to destroy the empire controlling her world. But if everything she knows is a lie, will she even want to fulfill her destiny?

At seventeen, Ileni lost her magical power and was exiled to the hidden caves of the assassins. She never thought she would survive long. But she discovered she was always meant to end up, powerless, in the caves as part of an elder sorcerer’s plan to destroy the evil Empire they’d battled so long. Except that Ileni is not an assassin, and she doesn’t want to be a weapon. And, after everything, she’s not even sure she knows the truth. Now, at the very heart of the Empire—its academy for sorcerers—the truth is what she seeks. What she finds challenges every belief she holds dear—and it threatens her fledgling romance with the young master of assassins.

Obviously, this is not the place to start when reading Leah Cypess.  I highly recommend her first book, one that blew me out of the water (the twist is fabulous!), another fantasy about a mysterious assassin, Mistwood. 

Has anything come out in the last week or so that you're dying to read?
