Face your demons… or feed them.
The dashing young king, Nikolai Lantsov, has always had a gift for the impossible. No one knows what he endured in his country’s bloody civil war–and he intends to keep it that way. Now, as enemies gather at his weakened borders, Nikolai must find a way to refill Ravka’s coffers, forge new alliances, and stop a rising threat to the once-great Grisha Army.
Yet with every day a dark magic within him grows stronger, threatening to destroy all he has built. With the help of a young monk and a legendary Grisha general, Nikolai will journey to the places in Ravka where the deepest magic survives to vanquish the terrible legacy inside him. He will risk everything to save his country and himself. But some secrets aren’t meant to stay buried–and some wounds aren’t meant to heal.
I don’t know why it’s always such fun for me to put together a TBR each month because I have yet to read everything on my TBR for a month. But, I think I just love lists and I love looking at books, so TBR it is! Mostly I look and see what’s currently available on my wishlist through Overdrive and/or Hoopla. This always changes of course, and I’m never sure about when holds will come through for the books that I had to put on hold to actually be able to get my hands on them. But, here’s a list of some potential reads for me coming in June. Oh, and I’ll be taking a little vacation this month, and I never get as much reading done as I hope to get done while on vacation. However, it’ll just be me and my family in a secluded cabin on a lake. So, I’m envisioning some sun soaking with a book in my hand!
