Welcome to a new edition of Fae News. Find my book picks for this month and save time choosing what to read next.

Book of the Month

I was recently introduced to a fae who could shift into a crow, and I have to say the choice of animal surprised me. And maybe it was in part because of that, that this book captivated me.

I know, I know, there are probably more books with fae crows, like a series I fortuitously just read—The Kingdom of Crows by Olivia Wildenstein—, but for me, Wings of Ink was my first.

In this ongoing series, you’ll face mysterious creatures and events. There’s danger and many things happening behind curtains, which Ayna needs to uncover to understand her role in this story. 

Once a pirate, now a prisoner, and soon-to-be bride of the Crow King, she’s taken to the fairylands, where she’ll have to learn to adapt if she plans on finding a way to freedom.

What she wasn’t counting on was her growing attraction for her latest captor; a king, who hides more under the feathers.

Decisions, decisions… freedom, love, staying alive, lighting her curiosity and intellect…There’s definitely plenty to juggle with.

Even when book 2 went sort of on a loop of events and repetition, and premises like once a prisoner, stays a prisoner because of course [duh]… I’m dying to see how this story will end.

What else can you expect?

There’s a je ne sais quoi with this series, really. The author can write whatever she wants and I’ll buy it. But, let’s see, in terms of romance, we start with an arranged marriage, but eventually repulsion turns to attraction. This is a new adult Fan-Rom so there’s some spice.

Now, regarding the world, you’ll venture to more different landscapes in book 2. However, with the curious magic, the mysterious creatures lurking around and all the secrets, everything turns into a quite enchanting universe. 

And I mention the latter, because this series is part of Angelina Steffort’s Alcunaire, a metaverse that includes her other series Shattered Kingdom and Quarter Mage.

But let’s get back to what originally hooked me, this fae crow. A crow usually symbolises death. And while reading a bit, it seems we can add intelligence, adaptability and destiny to the mix.

Well, you can be sure that wherever these fae crows fly, death will follow, although they won’t be the only torturers. As for wisdom, hmmm questionable, especially in the second book. Adaptability, well, they are shifters aren’t they. Also, they’ve had to learn to live under certain restraints, so, yes, it applies. And for the last bit, we know there’s a lot destiny has planned for these characters.

So, if I sparked your curiosity, go and check out this immense universe of humans, fae, shifters, and who knows what else…

Upcoming releases

Here are my top two upcoming releases for this month:

If you like rough, intense and dominant male characters with a considerable age gap with their usually innocent lamb, then Skye Warren is an option for you. And she’s releasing the sequel to her latest series Tanglewood University, called The Student. If you’re familiar with the author, you’ll recognise characters from previous series set also in Tanglewood. This one has rough sex, intrigue, betrayals and complicated relationships.

And moving to Fan-Rom, I bring another sequel, this time by the pen of Lauren Roberts. I’m talking about Reckless, second book in The Powerless Trilogy, which as you may know, has raised some hype. A prince and an “ordinary” woman cross paths, but it seems danger, secrets and turmoil will define their attraction. I expect to read this series in the months to come.
