Synopsis (on the back of the book): Courage comes from a shadowed place in our hearts; a blurred line that straddles love and sheer stupidity.
To seventeen-year-old Ava, wild woodcats, hungry stragglers, and simple-minded townsfolk are the evils she’s grown accustomed to. But when Ethan, an unusual man with eyes of smoke and fire opal, enters her world she quickly understands that there are worse things out there than drunken men and carnivorous forest creatures. She’s a specialised liar and a hell of a fighter, but against a group of animalistic men called Berserkers she struggles to survive the encounter as the desperate swing of a dagger is all it takes to change her life for good.
Half-dead and hunted by the Berserker’s leader when he forms a monstrous obsession with her, Ava escapes his pursuit in an unfamiliar land full of impossible creatures, unlikely allies, and the man she doesn’t know whether to kiss or kill.
But after dreadful news of her missing brother surfaces, Ava becomes more involved in the centuries-long war and begins to unravel the reasons behind her relentless nightmares, discovering truths long-buried in a violent history of love, loss and betrayal.
Review: Let me tell you, THIS IS A FRIGGIN AMAZING BOOK! Seriously I love this book. I love the storyline, and her writing style is just so perfect! Ava is a Friggin awesome character, from page One I was like “yas gurl, werk it. *flicks hair*” Her writing just pulls you into the story, I felt like I was transported to a new world. The emotions I felt reading this – oh my. I have so many theories but I think I’ll be posting them around March time? If you love (me, I do!) Sarah J. Maas’s books, I think you’ll love this one! I was put into #TeamDemon I think it’s such a fun way to promote a book! Thanks to Oftomes publishing and Emily Sowden (who are seriously nice people!) I got to read this wonderful wonderful book early! definitely one of my favourite reads of the year! This isn’t as detailed as my other reviews because the book hasn’t been released yet. I’m finding it really hard not to say anything but this book will be released on the 7th of February on ebook and paperback! I cannot wait for more awesomeness next year! and if you sign up to Emily Sowden’s site you can get a free colouring in page!
