National bestselling author Barb Hendee returns to the world of the Mist-Torn witches, as two sisters who can see the secrets of the past and the mysteries of the future begin a quest to save the family they never knew existed…

Powerful prince Malcolm is facing ruin in the wake of a curse that has destroyed his harvest. He blames the band nomadic Móndyalítko who summer in the meadow below his castle — and he is determined to root out the people who caused the blight by any means necessary.

When Céline and Amelie Fawe, descended from the Móndyalítko, learn that their mother’s people are under suspicion of sabotage and treason, they set out to use their magical gifts to save their estranged relatives and learn about their own origins.

Now it’s up to the sisters — along with their motley escort, including a prince’s lieutenant, a shape-shifter, and an old woman with a murky past — to discover the source of the curse to restore life to the ravaged land and protect the innocent from unfair vengeance.

To keep the engagement from falling through, Damek must expose the killer quickly — and he needs the seers’ powers to do so. Though the Fawes’ patron, Prince Anton, fears that bringing Céline and Amelie to Shetâna places them in grave danger, he is honor-bound to help his brother Damek.

Only none of them is prepared for the peril that awaits them at Castle Kimovesk — for someone in the court is determined to prevent the marriage from happening, no matter how deadly the cost…

They came after the Diseray. Some were terrors ripped from our collective imaginations, remnants of every mythology across the world. And some were like nothing anyone had ever dreamed up, even in their worst nightmares.

Monsters.

Long ago, the barriers between our world and the Otherworld were ripped open, and it’s taken centuries to bring back civilization in the wake of the catastrophe. Now, the luckiest Cits live in enclosed communities, behind walls that keep them safe from the hideous creatures fighting to break through. Others are not so lucky.

To Joyeaux Charmand, who has been a Hunter in her tight-knit mountain community since she was a child, every Cit without magic deserves her protection from dangerous Othersiders. Then she is called to Apex City, where the best Hunters are kept to protect the most important people.

Joy soon realizes that the city’s powerful leaders care more about luring Cits into a false sense of security than protecting them. More and more monsters are getting through the barriers, and the close calls are becoming too frequent to ignore. Yet the Cits have no sense of how much danger they’re in — to them, Joy and her corps of fellow Hunters are just action stars they watch on TV.

When an act of sabotage against Joy takes an unbearable toll, she uncovers a terrifying conspiracy in the city. There is something much worse than the usual monsters infiltrating Apex. And it may be too late to stop them…

The Book Courtship Book Tag

Okay, this is the first post in here, in which there isn’t an exact book or an author that I write about. But yesterday was the first time that somebody tagged the blog and I thought why not doing it, so here I am.

It’s “The Book Courtship Book Tag” and I was tagged by Travelling In My Bookcase Blog. The Book Courtship Tag which was originally created by LovelyLikeLaura.

Phase 1 – Initial Attraction: A book that you bought because of the cover?

Fallen Too FarThis is definitely “Fallen Too Far” by Abbi Glines. I just fell in love when I saw the cover. And since I know that Abbi Glines is a good writer I just bought the book. Instantly. Check the Bulgarian cover that actually got me in here.

Phase 2 – First Impressions: A book that you got because of the summary?

A Discovery of WitchesI first saw the book in the local library, and when I read what’s it all about I just decided that it’s my book. And the big love has just began.

Phase 3 – Sweet Talk: A book with great writing?

The Lord of the RingsAll 3 books are amazingly writen in Tolkien’s style. I love this man and the world he had created. I’ve been lost there so many times.

Phase 4 – First Date: A first book of a series which made you want to pick up the rest of the series?

TwilightI’ve seen and heard so many people to talk bad about this book series, but I don’t really care. I just like it. The book wasn’t released in Bulgaria, so my first meeting with it was a fan translation, but a really good one. Being honest I read all the books online. After that Egmont Bulgaria bought the rights and now I have them all in my house.

Phase 5 – Late Night Phone Calls: A book that kept you up all night?

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood PrinceOne of my cousins has bought the book before me and I was so envious. I asked him to give it to me, so I can read it and he was good and gave it the same day. I started to read at 7pm and I finished at 5am. I didn’t even bother myself to sleep. It was good that I was in a summer holidays.

Phase 6 – Always on my mind: A book you could not stop thinking about?

This is it. This is a special book and beginning of a special series.

Phase 7 – Getting Physical: A book which you love the way it feels?

Fortune is a WomanThis is a book, that I just love. It’s writing, the way it makes me feel, the passion and the message it leaves! Deserves reading!

Phase 8 – Meeting the parents: A book which you would recommend to your family and friends?

“Shogun” by James Clavell is the book, that I can highly recommend. True and interesting, it is such kind of book, which can make you think about lots of things.

Phase 9 – Thinking about the future: A book or series you know you will re read many times in the future?

“Vampire Academy” series, 100%. It may not be many people’s favorite, but I read this book in a very hard moment of my life and it kept me safe, not thinking about bad things, but only about the plot and what is going to happen next. Definitely will re read the whole series many times.

Phase 10 – Share the love: Who do you tag?
