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 my husband to pick a random number from the approx 800 on the list. He chose 772, and that gave us…
Dark Skies by Danielle L. Jensen (Dark Shores #2)
A RUNAWAY WITH A HIDDEN PAST
Lydia is a scholar, but books are her downfall when she meddles in the plots of the most powerful man in the Celendor Empire. Her life in danger, she flees west to the far side of the Endless Seas and finds herself entangled in a foreign war where her burgeoning powers are sought by both sides.
A COMMANDER IN DISGRACE
Killian is Marked by the God of War, but his gifts fail him when the realm under the dominion of the Corrupter invades Mudamora. Disgraced, he swears his sword to the kingdom’s only hope: the crown princess. But the choice sees him caught up in a web of political intrigue that will put his oath – and his heart – to the test.
A KINGDOM UNDER SIEGE
With Mudamora falling beneath the armies of the Corrupter, Lydia and Killian strike a bargain to save those they love most—but it is a bargain with unintended and disastrous consequences. Truths are revealed, birthrights claimed, and loyalties questioned—all while a menace deadlier and more far-reaching than they realize sweeps across the world.
I really loved Dark Shores and I am very excited to get more from this series. It is important to note that this book is NOT a sequel, per se. It actually follows two different characters and the timeline runs side-by-side with the events from book 1 (think Empire of Storms and Tower of Dawn). While I am anxious to see what Teriana and Marcus are doing, I am looking forward to expanding the world a bit! I have high hopes.
