YOU KNOW YOUR LIFE IS BAD WHEN YOU MISS YOUR DAYS AS A POISON TASTER...

With her greatest enemy dead, and on her way to be reunited with the family she'd been stolen from long ago, Yelena should be pleased. But though she has gained her freedom, she can't help feeling isolated in Sitia. Her Ixian background has changed her in many ways—and her newfound friends and relatives don't think it's for the better....

Despite the turmoil, she's eager to start her magic training—especially as she's been given one year to harness her power or be put to death. But her plans take a radical turn when she becomes involved with a plot to reclaim Ixia's throne for a lost prince—and gets entangled in powerful rivalries with her fellow magicians.

If that wasn't bad enough, it appears her brother would love to see her dead. Luckily, Yelena has some old friends to help her with all her new enemies...

Yes ☺


rachel ☾ (typedtruths) | 8564 comments Okay, I'll be joining then! :)


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 84094 comments Mod
Yay! ☺ did you request the new one on netgalley?


rachel ☾ (typedtruths) | 8564 comments Nah, my ratio is terrible at the moment - I haven't reviewed my latest requesting spree ones - so I was going to wait until I could bump it up. :)

I don't have a copy of it so I won't join for that one. Just this one and Fire Study. :)

I got distracted yesterday and didn't get to start, will get to it eventually but I've got to finish a couple of books which are being released now first!

Tati | 10171 comments my Fire Study copy is driving me crazy!!


rachel ☾ (typedtruths) | 8564 comments What's wrong with it?

Don't worry! We'll be here when you are ready to read it.

Tati | 10171 comments What should be in italics is not, but the worse thing is that every two lines there is new paragraph, meaning that phrases get broken.


rachel ☾ (typedtruths) | 8564 comments Oh! That's not good. The broken paragraph thing happened to me in Storm Fall (Rebel Wing, #2) by Tracy Banghart and it really made reading difficult. Best of luck!

Tati | 10171 comments I hate it when they happen! Sometimes, it's only a few pages, but in my copy, it's the whole thing that has this!


rachel ☾ (typedtruths) | 8564 comments Its the worst!

Tati | 10171 comments Shadow Study

the good news is, we get Valek's and Janko's POV. The bad new? The author keeps alluding to events from the Glass series and the novellas, and I don't have a clue about them


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 84094 comments Mod
Ah yes, that's why I was going to read the glass series before reading shadow study as well. I think that's why they have the series listed as 'chronicles of ixia series' on goodreads.

That kind of annoys me... Why have it marketed as a brand new series, when it's not??


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 84094 comments Mod
Abbie and I will be reading Magic study and onwards from February 23rd if anyone wants to join us ☺

It is a bit confusing! I thought the series were interchange too but I guess there is a certain order to it.

I'll join you when you get to Fire Study. Will you be reading the Glass series after that or Shadow Study?


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 84094 comments Mod
