Angry Robot Books has made the decision to discontinue both Strange Chemistry and Exhibit A imprints effective immediately. Among the titles effected is te Assassins Curse duology by Cassandra Rose Clarke.
I had Assassins Curse in my wishlist on Amazon for months, maybe even a year. I bought it December 26, 2014 and when I went online to get the sequel on January 8, 2015 it was gone. Luckily they still had the paperback in stock.
I am so happy that I caught it. I would have been entirely disappointed is I would have not had the chance to finish Ananna and Naji’s story.
I could tell early on that Ananna didn’t have much of a formal education. But don’t underestimate her. She is scrappy, and can hold her own even when the bets are against her. Her parents have decided to marry her off and obviously that not going to happen.. Cue the runaway bride music.
Insert deadly assassin Naji sent after her by the jilted grooms family. A twist later they are forced to join forces. I don’t want to spoil it for those who haven’t read it.
Pirates, Assassins, other-world creatures, witches, wizards, mer-people (sort of) , a mysterious and magical island, a manticore, sprinkle some romance, and a snake in the right place at the right time combine to make this a magical duology.
Much love & Happy Reading
Hope is the thing with feathers
that perches in the soul-
and sings the tune without the words
and never stops at all
And sweetes- in the gale is heard
and sore must be the storm
that could abash the little bir
that kept so many warm
Ive heard it in the chillest land
and on the strangest sea,
yet-never – in a extremity
Is asked a crumb of me.
Hope is perhaps my favorite poem of all-time. There is something of a bird perched in my soul singing Sara Barellies tune Brave. Encouraging me to push forward and go after what my heart wants.
Everyday I fight off the bad bad putty cat that is the modern world, there is always someone waiting to crush your heart. As if it was there purpose for living.
But I stand up everyday and remind myself. Its my heart, its my dreams and you can’t have it.
When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world. As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever. Perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore and George R. R. Martin, this first book in a sexy and action-packed new series is impossible to put down!
I am patiently eagerly waiting for the release of “A Court of Thorns and Roses” written by Sarah J. Maas author extraordinaire! She is also responsible for my Throne of Glass obsession! I had the privilege of meeting her in NOLA @ RT14!
Amazon has released an eSampler. Don’t do it, its torture. To have it dangled in your face this far away from release day should be considered cruel and unusual punishment. (if you are determined to have it click>>>>here) But seriously I wish that I would have waited. Be careful you might be spending two hours online looking for an ARC, when you should be sleeping.
Go ahead and pre-order it HERE!

Invitation– Shel Silverstein
If you are a dreamer, come in
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer
If you’re a pretender, come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin
