This Week’s Most Anticipated Release(s)
First off, I am going to mention a book that actually released yesterday, Soul of Flame by Rebecca Ethington. For those of you who have kept up with this series, you already know how amazing it is! And those who follow my blog, already know how fascinated I am with this series, since I have reviewed the previous books on here. If your new to her, however – let me just say that I am not a huge fan of YA. That really speaks to how great this series is! Once you get started, you’ll know exactly why i fell in love with it though. I also have to say that one is a first in that the main male lead that I was rooting for originally – is not the same male lead I am rooting for in the end. Just so you know! And it’s rare that a author can get me to switch sides like that – so it is certainly a credit to her writing! But enough raving from me….give it a try – what are you waiting for? I’ve already grabbed my copy!
About the series: Joclyn Despain has been marred by a brand on her skin. She doesn’t know why the mark appeared on her neck, but she doesn’t want anyone to see it, including her best friend Ryland, who knows everything else about her. The scar is the reason she hides herself behind baggy clothes, and won’t let the idea of kissing Ryland enter her mind, no matter how much she wants to. The scar is the reason she is being hunted…..Soul of Flame is preceded by Kiss of Fie, Eyes of Ember, and Scorched Treachery.
Blurb from Soul of Flame: The Time for the final battle has come. Edmund’s armies have surrounded the Rioseco Abbey, trapping the few survivors inside. The sight that Ilyan was given a thousand years ago is about to come to pass. If only Joclyn was able to fight. Joclyn is tormented by the hallucinations that Cail’s mind has left her with, her magic an uncontrollable torrent that even Ilyan cannot control. Her moments of lucidity are broken by fears of dripping pipes and bleeding walls, and a desire to kill Ryland that she is having trouble trying to ignore. The sight has shown her power, shown her success, but it has also shown her death – The end of her life something she is not quite willing to give up on yet. Even past her death, the sight has shown her love, and that love may be the only key to her sanity, to her strength, and to Edmund’s death. That love may stand in her way, and a single choice may tip the scales and secure their future, or destroy their fate.
