Ever since I read a little known book at the time, called Master of Crows by Grace Draven a few years back, everyone at The Book Pushers became huge fans of her books (I was on a mission to squee and push this book on everyone!). Grace Draven has a brand new series starting this September called PHOENIX UNBOUND in her FALLEN EMPIRE series with ACE/BERKLEY which is slated to be released on the 25th. I freaking adored the book which has Grace’s trademarks of a wonderful slow burn romance, a brilliantly thought out world and eerie chilling creatures. I personally think this is one of the best books she’s written to date and we can’t wait to post our review later this month.
Ace Trade Paperback | September 25, 2018
A woman with power over fire and illusion and an enslaved son of a chieftain battle a corrupt empire in this powerful and deeply emotional romantic fantasy from the USA Today bestselling author of Radiance.
Every year, each village is required to send a young woman to the Empire’s capital–her fate to be burned alive for the entertainment of the masses. For the last five years, one small village’s tithe has been the same woman. Gilene’s sacrifice protects all the other young women of her village, and her secret to staying alive lies with the magic only she possesses.
But this year is different.
Azarion, the Empire’s most famous gladiator, has somehow seen through her illusion–and is set on blackmailing Gilene into using her abilities to help him escape his life of slavery. Unknown to Gilene, he also wants to reclaim the birthright of his clan.
To protect her family and village, she will abandon everything to return to the Empire–and burn once more.
