I got a glimpse of this book from Hot Key last year, and I’ve been eagerly awaiting my chance to read the full thing ever since!
I am absolutely loving the number of awesome epic fantasies that are coming out this year! I read the extract of The Ruin of Kings when it was available on NetGalley last year, and adored it so much that I actually shouted ‘NO!’ when I realised I couldn’t turn the page any more. Luckily, I was fortunate enough to be accepted to read a full proof, and let me tell you, this book is even more astonishing in full.
I’m always looking for LGBTQ stories in fantasy fiction, and NineStar Press are killing it recently (see my review of Daughter of the Sun), so when I saw Undertow, a paranormal fantasy novella, pop up on NetGalley I was intrigued. They were kind enough to send me a copy of the first novella, Darkling, too, as the series requires the books to be read in order to understand what is going on!
