One of my most anticipated releases for the month of April is:
Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young (released April 24, 2018 by Wednesdays Books)
I’ve been waiting for this to release for ages, as I’m a huge fan of Norse mythology and viking lore. The sampler was absolutely amazing, so I can’t wait to read the rest of the story! (Plus I saw a picture of naked copy on the author’s Instagram and it looks gorgeous with some words embossed on the front!)
OND ELDR. BREATHE FIRE.
Raised to be a warrior, seventeen-year-old Eelyn fights alongside her Aska clansmen in an ancient rivalry against the Riki clan. Her life is brutal but simple: fight and survive. Until the day she sees the impossible on the battlefield—her brother, fighting with the enemy—the brother she watched die five years ago.
Faced with her brother’s betrayal, she must survive the winter in the mountains with the Riki, in a village where every neighbor is an enemy, every battle scar possibly one she delivered. But when the Riki village is raided by a ruthless clan thought to be a legend, Eelyn is even more desperate to get back to her beloved family.
She is given no choice but to trust Fiske, her brother’s friend, who sees her as a threat. They must do the impossible: unite the clans to fight together, or risk being slaughtered one by one. Driven by a love for her clan and her growing love for Fiske, Eelyn must confront her own definition of loyalty and family while daring to put her faith in the people she’s spent her life hating.
If you have this on your list as well, there is currently a preorder campaign going on where you can get a bookmark, breathe fire stick and a signed bookplate for submitting proof of preorder. You can find out more about this on Adrienne Young’s blog post HERE.
