Every month I will post the books that I’m most excited about that release each month. For August I’m bringing you three exciting releases. Let’s check them out:
Crystal Kingdom by Amanda Hocking
Release Date: August 4, 2015
Then, while she’s still trying to make sense of it all, Ridley tracks her down while she’s on the run for a crime she didn’t commit. He refuses to abandon her, so she finally decides that she wants to be with him and that they do belong together. Together, they return to the Kanin capital and rally other trackers and the King’s Guard to defend their kingdom from the villain within. But in the process, Bryn learns a startling truth about her former enemy. Brynn’s loyalty is still to her kingdom, but will she be rewarded with a place in the royal guard — and who will ultimately win her heart?
Court of Fives by Kate Elliott
Release Date: August 18, 2015
In this imaginative escape into an enthralling new world, World Fantasy Award finalist Kate Elliott begins a new trilogy with her debut young adult novel, weaving an epic story of a girl struggling to do what she loves in a society suffocated by rules of class and privilege.
Jessamy’s life is a balance between acting like an upper class Patron and dreaming of the freedom of the Commoners. But at night she can be whomever she wants when she sneaks out to train for The Fives, an intricate, multi-level athletic competition that offers a chance for glory to the kingdom’s best competitors. Then Jes meets Kalliarkos, and an unlikely friendship between a girl of mixed race and a Patron boy causes heads to turn. When a scheming lord tears Jes’s family apart, she’ll have to test Kal’s loyalty and risk the vengeance of a powerful clan to save her mother and sisters from certain death.
Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman
Release Date: August 25, 2015
Imagine a time when the gods turn a blind eye to the agony of men, when the last of the hellions roam the plains and evil stirs beyond the edges of the map. A time when cities burn, and in their ashes, empires rise.
Alexander, Macedonia’s sixteen-year-old heir, is on the brink of discovering his fated role in conquering the known world but finds himself drawn to newcomer Katerina, who must navigate the dark secrets of court life while hiding her own mission: kill the Queen. But Kat’s first love, Jacob, will go to unthinkable lengths to win her, even if it means competing for her heart with Hephaestion, a murderer sheltered by the prince. And far across the sea, Zofia, a Persian princess and Alexander’s unmet fiancée, wants to alter her destiny by seeking the famed and deadly Spirit Eaters.
Let me know if you guys are looking forward to any of these books this month! I really can’t wait to get my hands on them.
Until next time,
