TITLE: Nightrender

AUTHOR: Jodi Meadows
PUBLISHER: Holiday House

SYNOPSIS:

Kingdoms will fall, gods will die, and hearts will be broken in this sprawling new fantasy from New York Times bestselling author Jodi Meadows.


In the middle of nothingness is the continent of Salvation.


Reality bends easily here. Villages disappear. Forests burn forever. Pockets of inconsistent time are everywhere, their boundaries strung with yellow ribbon. And the three kingdoms of Salvation have been at war for a thousand years.


But the greatest threat is the Malice, an incursion from the demon plane slowly tearing its way through the world's weakest seams. Seams that--once split--will lead to the total unraveling of night and day, light and dark, life and death.


Not that the human world takes much interest. Of more concern is the upcoming marriage of Rune Highcrown, Prince of Caberwill, and Johanne Fortuin, Princess of Embria--the serpent bride, a girl of famous cunning--which offers a possible end to the ancient conflict. But Rune has noticed the growing darkness, and he is determined to summon mankind's only defense: Nightrender, the hammer of the gods, an immortal warrior more weapon than girl.


There is only one problem. The last time she was summoned, she slaughtered every royal in Salvation, and no one knows why. Will she save humanity from the Malice... or plunge it deeper into the fires of eternal war?

Their paths were Chosen.

Nellie Glazer, a rare shapeshifter banned from the human realm, 

does not know true fear until she finds herself standing in the

As Roehl hunts for her, eager to claim his murderous vengeance, Calla searches for answers she believes only Incendia can offer.

Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:

Hunt the shadow. Guard the flame.

 

Noor is the new Aten of Helios, having wrenched the kingdom of the sun from her treacherous father’s hands. Citali stood with her sister against him, and rejoiced when he died at Noor’s hand… But he did not go quietly.

 

He poisoned the thoughts of their older sister, Zarina, who believes that Noor is not who she claims and was never supposed to be Aten. As Zarina flees the temple to determine her next step, she encounters, then attacks, Citali.

 

Beaten and left for dead, Citali’s cries are heard by the Wolven of Lumina. In a flurry of fur and fang, Beron rushes to her aid yet fears he arrived too late. With what would have been her dying breath, Citali whispers a secret that changes everything.

 

Pleading to Lumos – the god of the moon – for a way to save her, Beron is provided an answer that comes at a steep price. Citali will become Wolven. The two bonded together for a lifetime. Despite their tumultuous past, Beron helps hone her new strength and senses, a primal passion now surging through her veins. But can the two stop fighting one another and work together to hunt and destroy the darkness spreading over the sands like a plague of locusts? Or will the sands of time run out for them both?





Casey Bond lives on a rural farm in West Virginia with her husband and their two beautiful daughters. She writes phoenixes – gloriously flawed and morally gray characters that fiercely rise from the ashes of their circumstances. World building is one of her favorite hobbies, along with stamping metal jewelry, swimming, and enjoying the beauty of nature. She thinks thunderstorms are better than coffee and that watching a meteor shower is the closest thing to magic you might ever see. She’s a firm believer that every amazing book needs a world you want to wrap yourself in, a character you want to win, and a love you would fight for.

 

Casey is the award-winning author of When Wishes Bleed, Gravebriar, and House of Eclipses.

Blurb:
Since the fall of Ankara, King Aldin has worked tirelessly to rebuild the neighboring kingdom—and secure his throne—while maintaining the fragile alliance that ended the war between them. Peace is finally within his grasp when dangers awaken that put his life, and the fate of his nation, at the mercy of his most formidable enemies.

 

As leader of the Turnskin, Pria never imagined aligning herself with the kingdom responsible for the bloody, generations-old feud with her people. Yet when destiny puts King Aldin's life in her hands, she must push old grudges aside to save them all from foreign invaders determined to conquer their country.

 

With assassins lurking behind every door and the fate of a vulnerable nation hanging in the balance, the king and the warrior find themselves trapped between fear and forgiveness, between war and redemption. Survival will mean letting old wounds heal for the sake of their people, and making peace with the darkest parts of themselves. But as their reluctant truce grows into much more, other dangers hover on the horizon, waiting to crush them both. Can they overcome their twisted fate and secure the crown? Or will the unexpected bond they are forging ultimately bring about their destruction?




Sherry is the author of over a dozen novels for teens and young adults including the best selling Stolen Empire series. She can often be found browsing her local bookstore with a large white hot chocolate in one hand and a towering stack of books in the other. That is, unless she's on deadline at which time she, like the Loch Ness monster, is only seen in blurry photographs.
