August will be here soon, which means summer is almost over. I feel like July has just flown by. Anyway here are the releases I’m looking forward to this month!
Release Date: August 2, 2016
Lia and Rafe have escaped Venda and the path before them is winding and dangerous – what will happen now? This third and final book in The Remnant Chronicles is not to be missed.
Bestselling author Mary E. Pearson’s combination of intrigue, suspense, romance and action make this a riveting page turner for teens.
I’ve been wanting to read The Remnant Chronicles for a while now. I’ve heard such great things, but I decided to wait until the series was completed before starting it. I own the first two books, so I’m excited that I will be able to binge read all three books together very soon!
Release Date: August 9, 2016
In a land where three suns almost never set, a fledgling killer joins a school of assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers who destroyed her family.
Daughter of an executed traitor, Mia Corvere is barely able to escape her father’s failed rebellion with her life. Alone and friendless, she hides in a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by the Senate and her father’s former comrades. But her gift for speaking with the shadows leads her to the door of a retired killer, and a future she never imagined.
Now, Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic—the Red Church. If she bests her fellow students in contests of steel, poison and the subtle arts, she’ll be inducted among the Blades of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and one step closer to the vengeance she desires. But a killer is loose within the Church’s halls, the bloody secrets of Mia’s past return to haunt her, and a plot to bring down the entire congregation is unfolding in the shadows she so loves.
Will she even survive to initiation, let alone have her revenge?
I’ve been seeing Nevernight everywhere lately, and what I hear is that people are either loving it or hating it. Because of this, I haven’t really had any interest to pick it up. However, that was until I read the synopsis. The synopsis sounds amazing and now I can’t wait to pick this book up!
Release Date: August 30, 2016
A Torch Against the Night takes readers into the heart of the Empire as Laia and Elias fight their way north to liberate Laia’s brother from the horrors of Kauf Prison. Hunted by Empire soldiers, manipulated by the Commandant, and haunted by their pasts, Laia and Elias must outfox their enemies and confront the treacherousness of their own hearts.
In the city of Serra, Helene Aquilla finds herself bound to the will of the Empire’s twisted new leader, Marcus. When her loyalty is questioned, Helene finds herself taking on a mission to prove herself—a mission that might destroy her, instead.
An Ember in the Ashes is another book I’ve been waiting to start until the series was completed. Now that A Torch Against the Night will be released soon, I’m excited to start these books soon!
