I’m late putting today’s post up, but here’s what the random number generator picked for me this week: book #290 from the TBR, All the Tides of Fate by Adalyn Grace!
Through blood and sacrifice, Amora Montara has conquered a rebellion and taken her rightful place as queen of Visidia. Now, with the islands in turmoil and the people questioning her authority, Amora cannot allow anyone to see her weaknesses.
No one can know about the curse in her bloodline. No one can know that she’s lost her magic. No one can know the truth about the boy who holds the missing half of her soul.
To save herself and Visidia, Amora embarks on a desperate quest for a mythical artifact that could fix everything―but it comes at a terrible cost. As she tries to balance her loyalty to her people, her crew, and the desires of her heart, Amora will soon discover that the power to rule might destroy her.
I really enjoyed the first book in this piratical duology, All the Stars and Teeth (check out my review here), so I’m really looking forward to seeing how the story wraps up! This was a gift from Justine at I Should Read That for my birthday this year – I did also have an E-ARC from NetGalley, but these covers are so beautiful I really wanted to own the books in hard copy. I think I’m going to try to make time for this in August, because although the first book wrapped up in a satisfying place, there’s so much more to see of Amora’s journey and I’m really in the mood for something swashbuckling and exciting like this. It’s going to be a fun time!
Have you read this duology? I’d love to know what you think and if the second book lives up to the first!
