I, like you, read a lot of books. A lot of those books are popular and well known, but some of them are obscure and no one talks about them, despite you thinking they are amazing! Every once in a while, when I read one of those obscurely wonderful books, I will be recommending them to you all, so you too may have the chance at loving them.
This week I am recommending none other than… *drum roll*
By Elise Kova
My Rating: ★★★★☆
A library apprentice, a sorcerer prince, and an unbreakable magic bond…
The Solaris Empire is one conquest away from uniting the continent, and the rare elemental magic sleeping in seventeen-year-old library apprentice Vhalla Yarl could shift the tides of war.
Vhalla has always been taught to fear the Tower of Sorcerers, a mysterious magic society, and has been happy in her quiet world of books. But after she unknowingly saves the life of one of the most powerful sorcerers of them all—the Crown Prince Aldrik—she finds herself enticed into his world. Now she must decide her future: Embrace her sorcery and leave the life she’s known, or eradicate her magic and remain as she’s always been. And with powerful forces lurking in the shadows, Vhalla’s indecision could cost her more than she ever imagined.
The book is super fun, and fast paced, and wonderfully written. If you like fantasy, magic, and are a fan of Avatar: the Last Airbender, then this is for you!
