Synopsis
The Huntresses of Artemis must obey two rules: never disobey the goddess, and never fall in love. After being rescued from a harrowing life as an Oracle of Delphi, Kahina is glad to be a part of the Hunt; living among a group of female warriors gives her a chance to reclaim her strength, even while her prophetic powers linger. But when a routine mission goes awry, Kahina breaks the first rule in order to save the legendary huntress Atalanta.

To earn back Artemis’s favor, Kahina must complete a dangerous task in the kingdom of Arkadia— where the king’s daughter is revealed to be none other than Atalanta. Still reeling from her disastrous quest and her father’s insistence on marriage, Atalanta isn’t sure what to make of Kahina. As her connection to Atalanta deepens, Kahina finds herself in danger of breaking Artemis’ second rule.

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


Welcome, welcome, thanks for visiting my blog!

June is over already... I feel like I've read NOTHING. This month was a busy one. I was busy working, but also had a lot of evening trips to concerts, and was chilling with friends a lot in the evenings.
Sadly, I've only read 3 books, and that has never happened since starting this blog.

I don't feel all that bad about it, because I did awesome things, like going to an Ed Sheeran concert, going to a Beyoncé concert, I got to meet Karin Slaughter and did something for a charity. I also had a lot of fun evenings with friends and I was working evening hours last week.
Better luck next month, right?!

Synopsis
In a land without magic, where the king rules with an iron hand, an assassin is summoned to the castle. She comes not to kill the king, but to win her freedom. If she defeats twenty-three killers, thieves, and warriors in a competition, she is released from prison to serve as the king's champion. Her name is Celaena Sardothien.

The Crown Prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect her. But something evil dwells in the castle of glass--and it's there to kill. When her competitors start dying one by one, Celaena's fight for freedom becomes a fight for survival, and a desperate quest to root out the evil before it destroys her world.
