Thanks to HarlequinTeen/MIRA Australia and Netgalley for providing me with a copy of this book for review.
Terra Cotta Warriors have been discovered on other planets in the Milky Way Galaxy. And Lyra Daniels’ parents are the archaeological Experts (yes with a capital E) on the Warriors and have dragged her to the various planets to study them despite the time dilation causing havoc with her social life.
When one of the many Warrior planets goes silent, and looters attack her research base, Lyra becomes involved in discovering why the Warriors were placed on these planets. And, more importantly, by who.
To be honest, I’m pretty damn excited that a) this was available for review from Netgalley through HarlequinTeen Australia and b) that I’m auto-approved. I’m a huge Maria Snyder fan, and I’ve pre-ordered this book, so I’m pretty keen to get stuck into it!
The Great Hunt by Wendy Higgins
When a monstrous beast attacks in Eurona, desperate measures must be taken. The king sends a proclamation to the best and bravest hunters: whoever kills the creature will win the hand of his daughter Princess Aerity as a reward. The princess recognizes her duty but cannot bear the idea of marrying a stranger—she was meant to marry for love—until a brooding local hunter, Paxton Seabolt, catches her attention. And while there’s no denying the fiery chemistry between them, Princess Aerity feels that Paxton’s mysteriousness is foreboding, maybe even dangerous.
Paxton is not the marrying type. Nor does he care much for spoiled royals and their arcane laws. He is determined to keep his focus on the task at hand—ridding the kingdom of the beast—but the princess continues to surprise him, and the secrets he’s buried begin to surface against his wishes.
I’ve been wanting to listen to his audiobook for a while, and it finally became available.
The Heart Forger by Rin Chupeco
In The Bone Witch, Tea mastered resurrection – now she’s after revenge….
No one knows death like Tea. A bone witch who can resurrect the dead, she has the power to take life…and return it. And she is done with her self-imposed exile. Her heart is set on vengeance, and she now possesses all she needs to command the mighty daeva. With the help of these terrifying beasts, she can finally enact revenge against the royals who wronged her – and took the life of her one true love.
But there are those who plot against her, those who would use Tea’s dark power for their own nefarious ends. Because you can’t kill someone who can never die….
War is brewing among the kingdoms, and when dark magic is at play, no one is safe.
I really enjoyed The Bone WItch and I loved the audiobook narrator, so I was pretty exited to listen to this when it became available at my library.
