New Book Release: Burning Glass by Kathryn Purdie!
Some years ago, I ran into Kathryn Purdie at a writing conference. She was awesome then and more so now. She's a fantastic writer, and it gives me great pleasure to introduce her debut release!
In Riaznin, it’s considered an honor for Auraseers like Sonya—girls with a rare form of synesthesia—to serve as the emperor’s personal protector, constantly scanning for feelings of malice and bloodlust in the court. But Sonya would rather be free.
After the queen’s murder and a tragic accident, Sonya is hauled off to the palace to guard a charming yet volatile new ruler. But Sonya’s power is reckless and hard to control. She’s often carried away by the intense passion of others.
And when a growing rebellion forces Sonya to side with either the emperor who trusts her or his mysterious brother, the crown prince, Sonya realizes she may be the key to saving the empire—or its greatest threat.
Congratulations, Kathryn! This release was a long time coming.
Sound good to you? It's available now wherever books are sold.
What good fantasy books have you discovered recently? What magic power would you like to have? Ever tried to stop an assassin?
I'm David, and Zootopia was surprisingly good. My review here.
