At the beginning of the Automae era, human Queen Thea - who cannot bear children - commissions her people to build her a child. One who can replicate every aspect of human life. A seemingly impossible request is manufactured, where individuals are Made, with Four Pillars: Reason, Calculation, Organics, and Intellect. However, this ignites a vicious war between the humans and the Automades, who r ...more

Also, follow the author on Twitter! She is such a kind soul!
f/f enemies to lovers fantasy?? with THIS cover?? 👀👀
I'm a total mess right now and this book is the cause. CRIER'S WAR is a lyrical, romantic debut that keeps you guessing at every turn. Just when you think you know where the story is going it flips the lid, and it feels effortless the way Varela handles these themes: the consequences of clinging to hatred, the cost of war, and what it means to really be human. And oh yeah, it' ...more
Wow, where do I even start. I think I’m just going to word vomit on this one because I had so many thoughts, I actually used the highlights and notes feature on the Kindle app for once in my life. Crier’s War was one of my most anticipated books of 2019, and it was every much the religious experience I was hoping it’d be. Between gorgeous writing, numerous allusions to our current societal institutions and prejudices, and a heart wrenching love story amidst tumult ...more
Nina Varela's masterful storytelling, woven with gorgeous poetic prose, hooked me from the first page. Crier and Ayla come to life on the pages of Crier's War. You can't help but be lured into the vividly imagined world ruled by the cruel and beautiful Automae, where humans must fight a war for their survival. This fierce tale of political machinations, new and surprising friendships, and blossoming love is as heart-wrenching as it is unforgettable.
Unofficially: Oh ...more
Do you want alchemy-based robots and rad fantasy world-building? Do you want some high quality enemies-to-lovers content? With girls kissing OTHER GIRLS?? You have come to the right place, my friend. CRIER'S WAR is a phenomenal debut with razor-sharp prose and a plot that will keep even those who read far, far too many books in the genre on their toes to the last page (and beyond).
This book delivers in three important areas:
1) enemies to lovers trope
2) slow burn romance
2) seriously sapphic
I didn't know this book was a thing until I saw it available in an arc drop at BookCon. I saw queer robots and humans and knew I immediately needed it. Plus going on Goodreads and seeing literally every pre-review hype it up for slow-burn sapphic enemies to lovers. Literally everything I needed ...more
"Look at the fluidity, the grace in each transition. They make it seem effortless. But see for yourself: their muscles are trembling. It is not effortless at all.
If there exists a type of human capable of dismantling our world, it is the dancer."
you heard it here folks this is the only book you'll ever need
Beautiful, poetic writing, political machinations, protagonists who you can root for all throughout their successes and their dumb mistakes - also a hate-to-love romance to die for. It's a s ...more
F/F? Slow burn? Enemies to lovers? And it's pitched as perfect for fans of Game of Thrones and Westworld? OMG, this book is meant for me. I already love it.
AHHHH! I'm on the blog tour for this stunning book 😍 Can't wait to hype it up, as if it already isn't so hyped BUT YAYYYY! Thank you, Nina Varela, Karina, and Harper Collins International 💞
“Crier’s War” finds us in the future where human like machines were built to fit the needs of the Queen but once their own will and desire for power outweighed their humanity a war broke out leaving the creators as second class citizens. With whispers of revolu ...more
It's has only been two days since I finished Crier's War and I still don't have enough words to describe it. Also, I don't think any of the words I have would do this book the ounce of justice it deserves. An #Ownvoices story by debut author Nina Valera, has been pitched to fans of Game of Thrones and Westworld and is a beautifully written novel about the love between two girls can fuel a revolution.
I am a sucker for a slow burn enemies-to-l ...more
