I hear there's a lot of kissing in this book. And Realm War. And dragon armies. And did I mention the kissing? ;) Fasten your seatbelts, everyone...

I don't know if i'm the only one.. but I really want her with Lucas Grey. I love their chemistry and he's pretty cool. It could be like Pheobe and Cole from Charmed and make the book even more interesting..

Update (I swear, this is the last update) ! because I am tired too haha!!! I'll put this as "pre-review rambling" under spoiler later)
Omg the synopsis is out, the last few days I've been busy with school stuff and rereading the Iron Flower, so I didn't notice when it came out and I haven't even read it BUT I HOPE IT'S GOOD (what am I saying, I KNOW it'll be good)
My most anticipated book of 2019!!!!

Holy cows flying through the air on fire!!!!!!!!! WE HAVE A COVER.
let me
I can't wait for it :D
Things to anticipate:
Elloren's newfound powers and her (hopefully exciting) training! o.O
Will she end up with Lukas or Yvan?!
Will Ariel be brought back to life :"'''(
Will Diana and Jarod's family be brought back to life :""""(
Getting rid of Fallon (preferably by slamming a tree trunk into her ahem, Elloren, I'm looking at you...
Getting rid of Evil Aunt (preferably by burning her to ashes... poor uncle TT) ahem, Yvan, as Elloren's probably-future husband you get the

My brain hurts.

That was quite a bit of plot and character introductions for my tiny brain.

The third installment in the Blackwitch Chronicles was a wild ride to say the least. It gave me an entirely different vibe from the last two books.

Spoilers from here on out so GOODBYE.

There are 71 pages of character introductions. 71 PAGES. HOW THE HELL AM I SUPPOSED TO REMEMBER ALL THESE PEOPLE?!

So essentially in the beginning I was completely overwhelmed. So inarguably overwhelmed because not only did I

Looking forward to reading the next one. Lucas makes her think makes her realize that she is stronger than she has been told. He is a tactician and a strategist if you are going to play double agent he is perfect. Elloren reacts and doesnt think. The whole time her aunt was hauling her around not once did she think to see what was happening. Sometimes you have to mourn later. How would she feel if she was fasted to one of the Bane boys? She was going to fast to someone that day just remember ...more

ARC provided by Edelweiss:

So much anxiety with this one. I had to take breaks just to give my heart a rest. This book definitely turns the tide for this story. We really see Elloren embrace more of who she is and what she can do. Shes always been a weak character to me but that changes in this book. Lukas has my heart. You will understand when you read this one. Theres a lot I want to say but cant without spoilers. Just know sh*ts about to get real.

Content Warnings: sexual content (like what

i cant wait. i cant wait, i cannot wait! After reading Wandfasted i really have a theory, and hey i am by no means against her a Lucas i'm really not but i'm sure you can guess where my heart is. BUT the similarities between Elloren and her mother are uncanny, fasting out of necessity and since her mother FELL IN LOVE WITH HER FASTMATE i'm thinking the same thing with happen with Lucas and Elloren. I could be wrong but these matching affinity lines seem so so so similar to fae mating and since ...more
