My pick for this week is Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows!
Mira Minkoba is the Hopebearer. Since the day she was born, she’s been told she’s special. Important. Perfect. She’s known across the Fallen Isles not just for her beauty, but for the Mira Treaty named after her, a peace agreement which united the seven islands against their enemies on the mainland.
But Mira has never felt as perfect as everyone says. She counts compulsively. She struggles with crippling anxiety. And she’s far too interested in dragons for a girl of her station.
Then Mira discovers an explosive secret that challenges everything she and the Treaty stand for. Betrayed by the very people she spent her life serving, Mira is sentenced to the Pit–the deadliest prison in the Fallen Isles. There, a cruel guard would do anything to discover the secret she would die to protect.
No longer beholden to those who betrayed her, Mira must learn to survive on her own and unearth the dark truths about the Fallen Isles–and herself–before her very world begins to collapse.
Why I'm Waiting
I saw this on someone else's WoW/CWW post two or so weeks ago, and they completely sold me! At first the synopsis comes off like any other fantasy novel. The main character is a special snowflake that will save the world. Except, she isn't! She's not a perfect princess, in fact, there's mental health in here! Which in my opinion, changes the whole game. Then there's the fact that she is sentenced to prison and also loved dragons. So...count me in!
Are you looking forward to Before She Ignites?
Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!
