Adorable dragons are necessary for everything, but this one is keeping her eye out for more awesome books :D

There is a never ending list of releases that I’m excited for obviously, but this one just got it’s cover and it looks awesome!

Of Fire and Stars

Betrothed since childhood to the prince of Mynaria, Princess Dennaleia has always known what her future holds. Her marriage will seal the alliance between Mynaria and her homeland, protecting her people from other hostile lands. But Denna has a secret. She possesses an Affinity for fire—a dangerous gift for the future queen of a kingdom where magic is forbidden.

Now, Denna must learn the ways of her new home while trying to hide her growing magic. To make matters worse, she must learn to ride Mynaria’s formidable warhorses before her coronation—and her teacher is the person who intimidates her most, the prickly and unconventional Princess Amaranthine (called Mare), sister of her betrothed.

When a shocking assassination leaves the kingdom reeling, Mare and Denna reluctantly join forces to search for the culprit. As the two work together, each discovers there’s more to the other than she thought. Mare is surprised by Denna’s intelligence and bravery, while Denna is drawn to Mare’s independent streak. Soon their friendship is threatening to blossom into something more.

But with dangerous conflict brewing that makes the alliance more important than ever, acting on their feelings could be deadly. Forced to choose between their duty and their hearts, Mare and Denna must find a way to save their kingdoms—and each other.

So I’m obviously excited about the magic and fantasy world, but oh my god the heroine falls for the prince’s sister?!?!?!? I’m so so so pumped that we’ve gotten to the point where a big five publishing house it willing to publish a YA fantasy with a f/f romance. November arrive already!!

What are you looking forward to most?

  4. I actually just whipped up a post for my next WoW featuring this exact book – I have been waiting for an LGBTQIA Fantasy book for what seems like AGES. I love that there are kingdoms, magic and that forbidden romance takes the cake. GET ON MY SHELF OF FIRE AND STARS :D
