This week’s book is a new release that i picked up last week. I didn’t know much of if when i picked it up, only that it’s pretty popular and that it’s one of my favorite genres: fantasy. Seems interesting but I probably wont be reading it until after Halloween. I just have way too many other books lined up. Right now, I’m still reading Wildcat and Moby Dick & I have a few books due for review.
“Please,” he said. “I don’t deserve to die. Please. I won’t touch them anymore, I swear. Have mercy.” First Line
YA Fantasy | 496 Pages | Pub. 2019
Five lives stand in its way.
Who will stop it… or unleash it?
For generations, the Seven Prophets guided humanity. Using their visions of the future, they ended wars and united nations―until the day, one hundred years ago, when the Prophets disappeared.
All they left behind was one final, secret prophecy, foretelling an Age of Darkness and the birth of a new Prophet who could be the world’s salvation . . . or the cause of its destruction. As chaos takes hold, five souls are set on a collision course:
A prince exiled from his kingdom.
A ruthless killer known as the Pale Hand.
A once-faithful leader torn between his duty and his heart.
A reckless gambler with the power to find anything or anyone.
And a dying girl on the verge of giving up.
One of them―or all of them―could break the world. Will they be savior or destroyer? Perfect for fans of Throne of Glass, Children of Blood and Bone, and An Ember in the Ashes.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK
Have you ever wished that there were official government bookish holidays, and that, by law, employers HAD to give their workers a paid day off? If so, what kind of bookish holiday would you like to have?
No…I haven’t ever had this thought before, but I’m thinking about it now & yes, i def want this holiday. World Literacy Day? This is on September 8th. I think this is a great day to have a paid holiday. The weather is cooling off (or warming up for you southies) so it would seem like the perfect time of year. How can we make this happened?
