To start I have to preface this review by going back to The City of Ruin by Charissa Weaks, the second book in the Witch Walker series.
With the way that I loved What Hunts Inside the Shadows, you’d best believe I dove directly into What Lurks Between the Fates by Harper L. Woods as soon as I could. I needed answers after the cliffhanger the second book left us on. And frankly, those answers were just as dark and horrifying as one could expect them to be with this series.
Hidden Beneath the Embers by Fay Bec is a dark fantasy book (with romance included of course), which frankly feels like one of my new favourite genres. Combine my OG favourite fantasy with one of my more recent favourites dark romance? Yes please! I got immediate Cinderella vibes off the start of this book, and as it proceeded it was reminiscent of A Court of Thorns and Roses in some ways, though darker. Which if I’m being honest, I’m clearly all about the darker stories.
I love how Rebecca Rathe’s Always Magnolia was set up in terms of story, and the different ways it was told.
Marrow by Trisha Wolfe and Brynne Weaver first caught my eye because of the beautiful cover, which is very deceptive to the darkness contained within the story (although the image does have a connection to it).
