Catalia « Cat » Fisa is a powerful clairvoyant known as the Kingmaker. This smart-mouthed soothsayer has no interest in her powers and would much rather fly under the radar, far from the clutches of her homicidal mother. But when an ambitious warlord captures her, she may not have a choice…

Griffin is intent on bringing peace to his newly conquered realm in the magic-deprived south. When he discovers Cat is the Kingmaker, he abducts her. But Cat will do everything in her power to avoid her dangerous destiny and battle her captor at every turn. Although up for the battle, Griffin would prefer for Cat to help his people willingly, and he’s ready to do whatever it takes to coax her…even if that means falling in love with her.

But while Holder can’t help falling for Sky, he also can’t shake the responsibility he feels, and the new guilt that is thrust upon him. In order to move forward Holder must dig deep into his past, and with Sky’s help, find the peace that he so desperately needs.

    Silence Fallen !!!!!!!! trop hâte de le lire celui la =) (même si j’ai encore pas mal de retard dans mes séries à mettre à jour ^^)

  2. Ooh nice new reads! Lots of new to me ones there! Except for Amanda’s!! I still need to read that one but it sounds like my kind of read! Love a good fantasy and one of my favorite fantasy authors spoke highly of it! So I feel confident that I too will love it! Happy Reading!

  3. I’m looking forward to Silence Fallen even though I haven’t tried that series yet lol. But it is on my list to try in 2017, and I love the idea of that one. Plus Prague… 🙂

  4. Hopeless m’avait vraiment plu, je me demande ce que donne le tome 2. Quant à Mercy Thompson, c’est une série qui me rend plutôt curieuse, bien qu’elle ne soit pas dans celles qui m’attirent le plus.
    J’espère que tu as passé un bon WE et que tes lectures t’ont plu 🙂
