And now, three sworn enemies begin a ruthless game of politics and intrigue, magic and betrayal, and the destiny of an entire world is at stake.”

    • Thanks Kathryn. It’s one I chose from winning from you – but I still haven’t read it. I love her THE Others series – but haven’t got to this one yet. It’s on my TBR for this year.

  1. I’m hoping to read Firekeeper’s Daughter soon, too! And I’ve read and enjoyed Daughter of Smoke and Bone and The Memory Keeper’s Daughter. Fun post!
