And it’s my stop for The Ikessar Falcon blog tour! A huge thank you to Caffeine Book Tours for including me and to the publishers for the gifted review copy. The Wolf of Oren-Yaro was one of my favorite reads this year and I was so excited to read the sequel. I have some thoughts on this amazing (yet painful?) read!

The Ikessar Falcon (2020)

The Bitch Queen returns in The Ikessar Falcon, the action-packed sequel to K. S. Villoso’s acclaimed fantasy debut, The Wolf of Oren-Yaro.

Abandoned by her people, Queen Talyien’s quest takes a turn for the worse as she stumbles upon a plot deeper and more sinister than she could have ever imagined, one that will displace her king and see her son dead. The road home beckons, strewn with a tangled web of deceit and unimaginable horrors – creatures from the dark, mad dragons and men with hearts hungry for power.

To save her land, Talyien must confront the myth others have built around her: Warlord Yeshin’s daughter, symbol of peace, warrior and queen and everything she could never be.

The price for failure is steep. Her friends are few. And a nation carved by a murderer can only be destined for war.

Header (Court of Lions)

A huge thank you to Caffeine Book Tours for including me in the Court of Lions blog tour and to the publishers for providing a gifted review copy! I’m so excited to be sharing this review with you all. I read Mirage last month and it was one of my favorite reads. You can imagine how over the moon I was to continue the journey with Amani and Maram in Court of Lions!


Court of Lions

Author: Somaiya Daud / Publication date:06 August 2020

Two identical girls, one a princess, the other a rebel. Who will rule the empire?

After being swept up into the brutal Vathek court, Amani, the ordinary girl forced to serve as the half-Vathek princess’s body double, has been forced into complete isolation. The cruel but complex princess, Maram, with whom Amani had cultivated a tenuous friendship, discovered Amani’s connection to the rebellion and has forced her into silence, and if Amani crosses Maram once more, her identity – and her betrayal – will be revealed to everyone in the court.

Amani is desperate to continue helping the rebellion, to fight for her people’s freedom. But she must make a devastating decision: will she step aside, and watch her people suffer, or continue to aid them, and put herself and her family in mortal danger? And whatever she chooses, can she bear to remain separated, forever, from Maram’s fiancé, Idris?
