I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

The invitation to join the secretive Guadel should have been the fulfillment of dreams Va'del didn't even realize he had. When his sponsors are killed in an ambush a short time later, he instead finds his probationary status revoked, and becomes a pawn between various factions inside the Guadel ruling body.

Jain's never known any life but that of a Guadel in training. She'd thought herself reconciled to the idea of a loveless marriage for the good of her people, but meeting Va'del changes everything. Their growing attraction flies against hundreds of years of precedent, but as wide-spread attacks threaten their world, the Guadel have no choice but to use even Jain and Va'del in their fight for survival.

Okay, I only got the book because it was free. I only started it because it fit in with a challenge (key word). I finished it because it was good. I finished it the day I started it because it was fantastic. Totally new world. Magic and mayhem. New love. Cranky people, political people. Danger and triumph.

Challenges this works for:
Read 52 Books in 52 Weeks
Outdo Yourself
Witches and Witchcraft
Monthly Key Word
A to Z
Let Me Count the Ways
Double Dog Dare
An Embarrassment of Riches

purchased before 1-1 so it counts for Double Dog Dare
