Here Is My WOW  Pick For This Week:
 
 
The Queen of Blood (The Queens of Renthia #1)
 
By Sarah Beth Durst
 
Publication Date: September 20th 2016 by Harper Voyager
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
An idealistic young student and a banished warrior become allies in a battle to save their realm in this first book of a mesmerizing epic fantasy series, filled with political intrigue, violent magic, malevolent spirits, and thrilling adventure

Everything has a spirit: the willow tree with leaves that kiss the pond, the stream that feeds the river, the wind that exhales fresh snow . . .

But the spirits that reside within this land want to rid it of all humans. One woman stands between these malevolent spirits and the end of humankind: the queen. She alone has the magical power to prevent the spirits from destroying every man, woman, and child. But queens are still just human, and no matter how strong or good, the threat of danger always looms.

With the position so precarious, young women are chosen to train as heirs. Daleina, a seemingly quiet academy student, is under no illusions as to her claim to the throne, but simply wants to right the wrongs that have befallen the land. Ven, a disgraced champion, has spent his exile secretly fighting against the growing number of spirit attacks. Joining forces, these daring partners embark on a treacherous quest to find the source of the spirits’ restlessness—a journey that will test their courage and trust, and force them to stand against both enemies and friends to save their land . . . before it’s bathed in blood.
  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
First look at that beautiful cover I just love the background of the woods and the hidden castles behind the woods it's absolutely enchanting! I have always wanted to read a book by  Sarah Beth Durst  her books always intrigued me and peeked my interest in some why, but I never read or picked up one of her books. Plus I heard nothing but amazing reviews about her books. I have a really good feeling that I am really going to love and enjoy her books. Have any of you read any books by Sarah Beth Durst?
