Here Is My WOW  Pick For This Week:
 
 
Kingdom of Ash and Briars
 
By  Hannah West
 
Publication Date: September 15th 2016 by Holiday House, Inc.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Bristal, a sixteen-year-old kitchen maid, lands in a fairy tale gone wrong when she discovers she has elicromancer magic in her blood. Elicromancers are an ancient breed of immortal people, but only two remain in Nissera after a bloody civil war. Bristal joins the ranks of Brack and Tamarice without knowing that one of them has a dark secret . . . Tamarice is plotting a quest to overthrow the realm’s nobility and take charge herself. Together, Bristal and Brack must guard the three kingdoms of Nissera against Tamarice’s black elicromancy. There are cursed princesses to protect, royal alliances to forge and fierce monsters to battle—all with the hope of preserving peace.

Building on homages to Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Jane Austen’s Emma and the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, Hannah West makes a spectacular and wholly original debut.

  2. This one has such a beautiful cover and I absolutely love fairytale elements! I wish they didn't allude to a dark secret and then tell us what it is immediately in the summary though. :/
