Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners. To participate, choose a random book from your TBR and show it off! It’s that easy, and I like easy 🙂
Basically I pulled up my “Want to Read” list on Goodreads, sorted it numerically, and asked Siri to pick a random number from the approx 800 on the list. She chose 744, and that gave us…
The Faithless Hawk by Margaret Owen
(SPOILER WARNING AS THIS IS BOOK TWO IN THE SERIES)
As the new chieftain of the Crows, Fie knows better than to expect a royal to keep his word. Still she’s hopeful that Prince Jasimir will fulfill his oath to protect her fellow Crows. But then black smoke fills the sky, signaling the death of King Surimir and the beginning of Queen Rhusana’s merciless bid for the throne.
With the witch queen using the deadly plague to unite the nation of Sabor against Crows—and add numbers to her monstrous army—Fie and her band are forced to go into hiding, leaving the country to be ravaged by the plague. However, they’re all running out of time before the Crows starve in exile and Sabor is lost forever.
A desperate Fie calls on old allies to help take Rhusana down from within her own walls. But inside the royal palace, the only difference between a conqueror and a thief is an army. To survive, Fie must unravel not only Rhusana’s plot, but ancient secrets of the Crows—secrets that could save her people, or set the world ablaze
I am super excited to read this! The Merciful Crow was one of my 5 Star Reads in 2019, and I am anxious for the sequel! Fie is fabulous and we need more of her!
