ARC Review: Fireborne (Aurelian Cycle #1) by Rosaria Munda

What a tense and wild ride this was! Fireborne is an amazing fantasy debut that looks at the period just after a revolution succeeds and asks important questions about politics in general.

“And as with God’s the world quaked, to see them fireborne.”

ARC Review: Gravemaidens (Gravemaidens #1) by Kelly Coon

Holy hell, this book. THIS BOOK. What a beautiful story about love and sacrifice. I laughed, I cried. Sometimes at the same time. This was the best book to buddy read because it features such an iconic ride or die friendship, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this with Haley & Ruby. You can read some of our thoughts in this twitter thread as we read the book.

“It was a tradition almost everyone considered an honor. Everyone but me.”

All that you really need to know about the plot is provided in the synopsis: the Lugal (king) is dying, and that means that three gravemaidens have been chosen to usher his soul into the afterlife. But when Kammani’s sister is chosen as one of the sacrifices, she vows to use her knowledge of healing to save the lives of not on the Lugal, but Nanaea as well.
