Daughter of immortals.
Princess Diana longs to prove herself to her legendary warrior sisters. But when the opportunity finally comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law—risking exile—to save a mortal. Diana will soon learn that she has rescued no ordinary girl, and that with this single brave act, she may have doomed the world.
Daughter of death.
Alia Keralis just wanted to escape her overprotective brother with a semester at sea. She doesn’t know she is being hunted by people who think her very existence could spark a world war. When a bomb detonates aboard her ship, Alia is rescued by a mysterious girl of extraordinary strength and forced to confront a horrible truth: Alia is a Warbringer—a direct descendant of the infamous Helen of Troy, fated to bring about an age of bloodshed and misery.
Two girls will face an army of enemies—mortal and divine—determined to either destroy or possess the Warbringer. Tested beyond the bounds of their abilities, Diana and Alia must find a way to unleash hidden strengths and forge an unlikely alliance. Because if they have any hope of saving both their worlds, they will have to stand side by side against the tide of war.
THOUGHTS SO FAR
At this point I only have about a third left to go, but so far my favorite thing about this read is the female empowerment it shows. Girls kicking ass and standing together is what young women of the world need to see most right now. And this book is a great example of both.
So, how is everyone’s 2018 going so far? Well I hope. Mine has been…interesting, I guess you could say lol. I got a cold, which stunk, but it gave me more time for reading, meaning I’ve checked off two of the ten books I wanted to read this year. I know that doesn’t sound like a lot, but I usually up the number throughout the year based on the amount of reads I find. Hopefully I’ll find some great ones this year, and if you have any you’d like to recommend, please do so in comments! I love seeing what you guys are into at the moment.
I’m happy to report that so far I’ve loved every book of 2018! “The Scorpio Races” by Maggie Stiefvater is one I’ve read before, but that was a whopping five years ago, and for Christmas I received the paperback edition, which I was SO psyched about. I loved it the first time I read it and I loved it even more the second time. And “The Shadowhunters Codex” by Cassandra Clare and Joshua Lewis was a new read but a great one. If you’re familiar with the Shadowhunter series, then you’ll understand what the codex is. It’s a book containing all knowledge on Shadowhunters and their culture/history, as well as information on magical creatures such as warlocks, faeries, and werewolves. I really enjoyed feeling like a Shadowhunter while reading it, and I’m glad I finally get to cross it off my reading list after having it sitting there for years!
So what about you? What’s your reading list looking like at the moment? Did you set a challenge for yourself? Let me know down below!
As we all know, the holidays are upon us, and that means that we’re all going to be ditching our computers for a while as we enjoy friends and family. But before I sign off for the next few weeks, I wanted to say thank you for visiting my blog this year, or for downloading one of my books. The support means the world to me, and I’m happy to say more books will be on their way in the next year…I hope lol.
I pray that each and every one of you will enjoy your holidays, and I look forward to seeing you in 2018! Here’s to hoping it’s a good one!
Seeing as it’s the biggest shopping day of the year, I couldn’t think of a better time to have a limited sale for my NA romance, “Learning Patience”! From Nov. 24th to Nov. 27th the ebook version of “Learning Patience” will be free on amazon.com! So take advantage, and enjoy a nice read to calm down after the holiday shopping rush 😉 Merry Christmas everyone!
Here’s the ridiculously long link, https://www.amazon.com/Learning-Patience-Inda-Herwood-ebook/dp/B00NZITM12/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1511383301&sr=8-1&keywords=learning+patience+by+inda+herwood
St. Claire Adams is the newest up and coming rapper to face music since Eminem. He travels the world, performs to crowds of thousands, and he also finds himself in L.A. County jail. A lot. And his final arrest gets him in some deep water not only with his bodyguard Dylan, but more importantly with his record label. Now Saint has an ultimatum to face. Either spend the summer getting “personality rehab” at Dylan’s sister’s famous horse training center, or forfeit his contract with the label and lose the dream life he has as a hip hop artist. Which do you think he chooses?
Life is pretty simple for Patience Kellen. At eighteen years old she is the youngest and most promising trainer at her aunt Molly’s horse farm, Kellen Stables, set in the middle of Nowhere, Kentucky. But even when news that one of Dylan’s protection details needs to come to the farm for a bit of down to earth rehabilitation, she doesn’t flinch. That is until she meets the tatted up rapper who has…let’s just say a mouth on him.
This summer just got a whole lot more interesting. For both parties.
As the title suggests, I’ve decided to post my favorite book of 2017 a little early, only because I know I probably won’t get a whole lot of reading done in the two months left of the year. So, without further ado…
It was an easy decision which book was my ultimate this year. I loved loved loved this book. Seriously, it was one of the cleverest stories I’ve ever read. The characters were amazing, the plot was incredible, and the world building left me feeling like I’d been transported to the city of Ketterdam. It has stuck with me since I read it many, many months ago, and that’s how I rate a book: if I’m left thinking about it long after I closed the cover. Which means “Six of Crows” takes the cake!
So, what’s been your favorite read so far this year ? Did you set a challenge for yourself? At this point I’ve read 16 of the 15 I had set for myself. I’d love to hear from you in comments if you’ve reached your goal as well!
Trying to get back into the swing of things after taking a writing break for a while, due to some health issues – both mental and physical. Hopefully I’ll make some more progress this week on “The Scars That Made Us”. One of the more personally connected stories I’ve written in a while.
Enjoy the teaser!
I just finished reading “Tiger’s Curse” last night, and I realized that means I only have one book left to read to complete my Goodreads reading challenge of 15 books. I know 15 isn’t very impressive, but for me, that’s progress compared to last year’s list which was probably half that.
But what about you? Did you set a goal for yourself this year? And if so, how close are you to reaching it? I’d love to know the answer, so leave me a comment down below! We can cheer each other on : )
