In a backwater Earth town, Rei Ettowa dreams of traveling across the stars to destroy Infiernen - the knight who murdered her brother.
When Rei discovers she is the reincarnation of the prophesied God Queen, she relishes her newfound ability to channel lightning for revenge. Unfortunately, blazing through a battlefield clashes with the Federation’s plan for Rei and the others like her. All the gods are to be trained as diplomatic figureheads to sway voters, not agents of war. Infiernen must remain untouched.
Unable to let go of her brother’s murder, Rei finds Infiernen. But instead of killing him, Rei discovers a secret the Federation has been keeping from her about her brother.
Now Rei is mad as hell. Her enemies must pay. But who are they? And what else is the Federation hiding from her?

Review: Fire & Heist

Finished the book: April 29th 2022
Pages: 290
Genres: YA, Fantasy
Published: December 4th 2018

Goodreads score: 3.43
My score:
Leading your first heist is a major milestone in Sky Hawkin’s family—even more so than learning to talk, walk, or do long division. It’s a chance to gain power and acceptance within society. But stealing your first treasure can be complicated—especially when you’re a wyvern, a human capable of transforming into a dragon. Embarking on a life of crime is never easy, and Sky’s mission uncovers deep secrets about the mother who recently went missing, the real reason her boyfriend broke up with her, and a valuable jewel that could restore her family’s wealth and rank in their community. With a handpicked crew by her side, Sky knows she has everything she needs to complete her first heist—and get back the people she loves in the process. But instead, she ends up discovering a dark truth about were-dragon society—a truth that is more valuable and dangerous than gold or jewels could ever be.

Offline for 10 days - My trip to Iceland

 Dear blog followers.

The visitors who read my blogposts frequently know that I'm heading off to Iceland!
I'm going on a trip that was originally planned in 2020 with my mom, sister, niece and aunt. 5 ladies traveling together!

I'm so excited. I'm going to pack my bags tonight, and will be flying tomorrow morning.
I've selected my books and can't wait to be offline for a bit!

Since loads of you were enthusiastic about my trip, I will write a blogpost with loads of pictures about my trip when I'm back home.

See you later!

Review: Of Tainted Heart (The Quatrefoil Chronicles #2)

Author: Olivia Wildenstein & Katie Hayoz
Started reading: March 27th 2022
Finished the book: April 26th 2022
Pages: 430 / 13:24:00
Genres: YA, Fantasy
Published: July 29th 2021

Goodreads score: 4.48
My score:
Somehow, we survived. It was supposed to be over. No more curses. No more magic. Just a calm, little life in Brume. For the first time ever, I’m ready for calm. So. Damn. Ready. Just so happens that the girl I love doesn’t like to leave things unfinished. Fine. So our little crew will assemble the Quatrefoil and bring magic back to the world. We’ve already faced death. This can’t be worse.
Or can it?

CADENCE I could have let things be. Maybe I should have let things be. My crew is alive. Slate is by my side. And life is returning to normal. Except the university is a giant pile of rubble. Papa is still stuck in a wheelchair. And a girl is dead. If magic can change all that, I want to try one last time to bring it back.
Hopefully, I won’t regret it.
