Fae News Issue #21 (Video Transcript)

"What happens now? Now, we dream.”


Hi! I’m Diana, the face behind Fae Reviews. 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 can’t believe I hadn’t featured before one of the best Fan-Rom books I’ve read in my lifetime. Please, behold the holy grail of storytelling mastery, “The Prison Healer.” 

This is a series of course, and I hope you read the whole trilogy because every little piece of the puzzle has been carefully crafted and put together to deliver the perfect combination of intrigue, action and surprise.

In this book, you’ll meet Kiva, a young woman who is now the healer of the impossible-to-escape prison of Zalindov. Her comfortable position has brought her enemies within. So, after she attends to a new prisoner, rumored to be the rebel queen, her life will be in even more danger. In spite of not having magic, she volunteers in the queen’s place to face some lethal trials, survivable only if you can manipulate the elements. However, unexpected alliances and friends will help her along the way.

Why I recommend this story?

  1. It’s action-packed
  2. There are incredible and surprising plot twists
  3. It’s a complex story beautifully weaved together
  4. Nothing is as it seems
  5. There’s complexity and a lot of intrigue
  6. And the characters are well-crafted

Besides, this trilogy should receive more notice. Now,

Who is this for?

  1. If you don’t mind reading young adult stories, check
  2. If you are a fan of Fantasy-Romance, check
  3. If you are more into Fantasy, but don’t mind some romance
  4. Therefore, if you are into less romantic Fan-Rom books, then check

I assure you, this is a read you won’t regret!

Upcoming releases

Let’s check out the upcoming and promising releases for this month:

From Romance writer Ali Hazelwood, comes her debut in Fan-Rom, “Bride.” No more STEM world, no more scientific ladies. It’s time for two of the most popular mythical creatures to take the spotlight, the vampire and the werewolf. Misery and alpha Lowe’s arranged marriage is meant to bring peace among these all-time enemy races, but it seems there are other secret agendas. Can vampire Misery find what she’s looking for within the wolves’ lair?

Want more vampires? Then, let’s move to a new duology by Hafsah Faizal, author of We Hunt the Flame. In A Tempest of Tea, we’ll step into a tearoom, that once the night falls, turns into an illegal den catering the vampires feared by society. However, it seems a tempest will strike and we’ll submerge in a world of conspiracy, secrets and criminal adventures.

And from Tahereh Mafi, comes her third book of her series This Woven Kingdom, titled All This Twisted Glory. I’ll admit I haven’t read the second book, released last year, so I honestly don’t want to spoil details about this one. I’ll keep you posted once I read the whole series.


Hey, couldn’t resist temptation and found yourself in the library, but don’t know what to pick? Download my “On the Go” guide to your mobile, so that you can carry an interesting selection of books all the time, right at your fingertips.


And moving to other genres, I’ll mention three interesting books coming soon as well:

First is Visions of Flesh and Fire by Jennifer Armentrout. I’m sure, you’re familiar with her work, especially her Blood and Ash series. If not, you can check my blog post below for all the info you need in this regard. Just know that she’s publishing a compendium to help us navigate her complex universe interconnecting the aforementioned series with her Flesh and Fire series.

Next comes Robert Jackson Bennett, Fantasy author of one of my 5-stars club series Founders. This time, in The Tainted Cup, he brings mystery and a crime investigation with what appears his characteristic touches of technology-improved characters in a story that promises a Holmes-Watson pair dynamic and cunning intellect. 

And finally, let’s talk about Romance with Tessa Bailey, as she is releasing Fangirl Down right before Valentine’s Day. It’s a grumpy-sunshine love story between a former rising golfer and his loyal fangirl. What he lacks in faith, she provides it for her. So, soon they’ll join forces to turn a half-empty glass to a full one.
