I have recently read two novellas that were fabulous. While I don’t think a novella warrants a full review I didn’t want to not mention them either because they rocked.
“Love in my world usually ended up with someone hearing ‘I smite thee!’ as she was cursed to be some lame flower for the rest of her life.”
For three years, Alexandria has lived among mortals—pretending to be like them and trying to forget the duty she’d been trained to fulfill as a child of a mortal and a demigod. At seventeen, she’s pretty much accepted that she’s a freak by mortal standards… and that she’ll never be prepared for that duty.
According to her mother, that’s a good thing.
But as every descendant of the gods knows, Fate has a way of rearing her ugly head. A horrifying attack forces Alex to flee Miami and try to find her way back to the very place her mother had warned her she should never return—the Covenant. Every step that brings her closer to safety is one more step toward death… because she’s being hunted by the very creatures she’d once trained to kill.
The daimons have found her.
Daimon is a prequel to a new series from Jennifer L. Armentrout. I absolutely fell in love with the plot in this book. Of course if you know me at all then you know I love any sort of mythology. Daimon is actually the Greek word for demon! You can get Daimon for free right now on the publisher website. Check it out and let me know what you think.
A Midsummer’s Nightmare?
Robin Goodfellow. Puck. Summer Court prankster, King Oberon’s right hand, bane of many a faery queen’s existence—and secret friend to Prince Ash of the Winter Court. Until one girl’s death came between them, and another girl stole both their hearts.
Now Ash has granted one favor too many and someone’s come to collect, forcing the prince to a place he cannot go without Puck’s help—into the heart of the Summer Court. And Puck faces the ultimate choice—betray Ash and possibly win the girl they both love, or help his former friend turned bitter enemy pull off a deception that no true faery prankster could possibly resist.
An ebook exclusive novella from Julie Kagawa’s Iron Fey series.
Oh where to start. We all know I love the Iron Fey series, so very much and having this novella focusing on the voice of Puck is so heartbreaking and hilarious at the same time. We FINALLY all get to see what is going on in that mischievous head of his. Trust me you do not want to miss this. Also free for the moment on the publisher’s website.
