Elle is a survivor. She’s managed to piece together a solid life from a childhood of broken memories and fairy tales her mom told her to explain away bad dreams.

It’s just another of so many unanswered questions she grew up with in a family estranged by silence and secrets.

Synopsis
Agnieszka loves her valley home, her quiet village, the forests and the bright shining river. But the corrupted Wood stands on the border, full of malevolent power, and its shadow lies over her life. Her people rely on the cold, driven wizard known only as the Dragon to keep its powers at bay. But he demands a terrible price for his help: one young woman handed over to serve him for ten years, a fate almost as terrible as falling to the Wood. The next choosing is fast approaching, and Agnieszka is afraid. She knows - everyone knows - that the Dragon will take Kasia: beautiful, graceful, brave Kasia, all the things Agnieszka isn't, and her dearest friend in the world. And there is no way to save her.

But Agnieszka fears the wrong things. For when the Dragon comes, it is not Kasia he will choose.

May Wrap up - Book Haul & What to Expect Next Month

Welcome, welcome and thanks for stopping by!

May is over and that means were going into the second half of 2018.
The weather here is LOVELY. I've had so many sun hours already.
It's also harder, because it feels like summer and I still have to work 7 weeks and I also have to make sure the kids work too.
Luckily we worked very hard the first part of the year, so we can do a bit more relaxing these days.

Reading wise, this was a good month as well and there are so many good books to read! I'm doing a buddyread and I continued reading the Throne of Glass series. My haul this month was one to be happy about too!

I hope you have as much sun as we do here in The Netherlands and I wish you a great month of summer-reading. ☀
