Synopsis from GoodReads:
Shade is thrown into the Land of Faerie when she meets a mysterious Teleen warrior, made of fire and electricity. Sent on a journey to obtain a rare magic only she can wield to save the Seelie forces against the Unseelie armies, she discovers her unique inner magic and possibly a difficult choice in love.
The Unseelie Queen Aveta is not one to trifle with. She hunts Shade down for her own devices and will destroy everything Shade loves to get what she wants.
After barely escaping the clutches of the Unseelie and stripped of her newfound magic, Shade journeys to the Ice Kingdom, The Great Divide, to hopefully retrieve her bound up powers from an Ancient Faerie King named Corb− but loses her memories instead. Alongside her body-guard Dylan, a former Captain of the Teleen Guard, she lays havoc to the Ice King’s fortress and forces their return to the Teleen kingdom. Hurrying to reach the Southern Realm, Shade claims her rightful throne and prepares for the upcoming battle with the Unseelie army.
This Bout of Books came at a perfect time for me since I recently came back from a vacation to Niagara Falls, Ontario and right before I left, I received an omnibus to read and review from one of my favourite authors. While on my vacation I read 0 pages, I’ve been back for a little over 2 weeks and I’ve read about… 60ish pages! I need an extra push to read this because, I’m super nervous since It’s my first time reading a book to review for an author and I can’t seem to find the will to read. It is a 3 book and 2 novella omnibus (of which I’ve only read 1 novella so far) so I really want to get through a bunch of it before the end of Bout of Books. I also bought the 4th book “Ever Wrath” which I’m adding to my list, I really hope I can get through them all or most of them at least!
