Sidhe is an Irish word which refers to a particular race of fairies that had powers including the ability to shapeshift and were thought by some to be the decedents of minor deities or gods. Either way, I'm definitely interested to find ourr more about it. It is going to be released late 2019 (less)

I am sure this will be 800+ pages long and way more complicated than my biology textbooks.

OHHHH. ¿Nuevo libro de SJM?

¿Saben quién lo va a leer? ¡YO!

Tal vez (probablemente) me arrepienta, pero no puedo evitarlo, jajajaja, por ahora sigo pensando que voy a leer todo lo que SJM escriba.

Just when I started to wonder what I'm going to do with the rest of my life after I'm done with Sarah's "Throne of Glass" series I saw this on my feed!

Call it fate or divine intervention, either way I'm more than just ready for this! XD

Bring it on, Sarah! Let us suffer, love, hope and dream once more! ;-P

Series Predictions:

• badass heroine. she's so special, so beautiful
• everyone is in love with her
• love interest #1 introduced, actually a nice relationship
• but wait
• FAE (oh sorry, it's sidhe now i guess)
• love interest #2 introduced; alpha male (totally fae sidhe)
• something about a mate bond
• shows abusive tendencies towards MC but that's okay because he has a ~troubled~ past and all transgressions are forgiven
• as a matter of fact, those abusive actions are portrayed as swoony-worthy and

The release has been pushed back to January 28, 2020??? More than four months??? What the heck.



I think our dear ol' Sarah is finally feeling the pull of so many works in progress 😐 I'll probably be in a new house, a new city, and in university (during my exams) when this comes out. Well, shit.


The Title

Hmmmm, I guess I like the title? It's just not special?

Like I LOVE SJM's books, and her other series' titles were either Something of Something or A Court of Something and Something;

A basic title for an author of basic books.

Who wants to bet the MC will be super duper beautiful and 'sarcastic' and the best at everything she does, and the love interest will purr every other sentence?

Uuuugh, I love Maas, but what is with all these generic YA fantasy titles?! “______ of _____ and ______”. And it almost always has the word “blood” in it. 🙄🙄

Edit 4/3/19: Whatever yall do do not I repeat do not ship the main character with the first love interest she have. It's not going to be endgame! Other than this sounds like a generatic urban fantasy...

This woman is always going to have two series going on at the same time is she?

SJM: Aww Throne of Glass ending this year. Welp! Guess I start another series next year while continuing with ACOTAR! Yall can't get rid of me easy!! I'll be writing while changing diapers bitches!

In seriousness, I can
