This week I can’t wait for:
These Feathered Flames by Alexandra Overy
Expected publication: 20 April 2021
Publisher: Inkyard Press
A queer retelling of “The Firebird,” a Russian folktale
When twin heirs are born in Tourin, their fates are decided at a young age. While Izaveta remained at court to learn the skills she’d need as the future queen, Asya was taken away to train with her aunt, the mysterious Firebird, who ensured magic remained balanced in the realm.
But before Asya’s training is completed, the ancient power blooms inside her, which can mean only one thing: the queen is dead, and a new ruler must be crowned.
As the princesses come to understand everything their roles entail, they’ll discover who they can trust, who they can love—and who killed their mother.
Why I Can’t Wait for this book:
I love fairytale retellings, and this one is based on a Russian fairytale! It’s also about sisters, which I love, and magic, which I also love, so I’m really interested in reading this!
