At once fresh, at once classic, Onyx and Ivory is a page-turning blend of monsters, magic, and romance. Susan Dennard, New York Times bestselling author of Truthwitch Acclaimed author Mindee Arnett thrusts readers into a beautiful, dangerous, and magical world in this stunningly epic and romantic fantasy for fans of Leigh Bardugo and Sarah Raasch. They call her Traitor Kate. Its a title Kate Brighton inherited from her father after he tried to assassinate the high king of Rime. Cast out of the nobility, Kate now works for the royal courier service. Only the most skilled ride for the Relay and only the fastest survive, for when night falls, the drakesdeadly flightless dragonscome out to hunt. Fortunately, Kate has a secret edge: She is a wilder, born with forbidden magic that allows her to influence the minds of animals. And its this magic that leads her to a caravan massacred by drakes in broad daylightthe only survivor Corwin Tormaine, the son of the king. Her first love, the boy she swore to forget after he condemned her father to death. With their paths once more entangled, Kate and Corwin must put the past behind them to face this new threat and an even darker menace stirring in the kingdom.

Accomplished the beautiful feat of getting a library card and immediately checking out a decent amount of books. Fifteen, to be exact.

Still need to finish Nevernight, of course, but I‘m suddenly suspecting I‘ll be much more able to finish my goal of reading 200 (or 250, ideally) books this year.

I got quite the #BookHaul from BookOutlet today! I love it when packages arrive days before they‘re supposed to! 😁 It‘s a lot of YA, but I was kinda emotional when I placed the order and comfort book shopping and that‘s what I was in the mood for. 🤷🏻‍♀️

tessavi Nice haul 👍 9mo
GypsyKat @tessavi Thanks! I was happy about it! 😊 9mo

It wasn't a bad book. The magic she introduces is new, a breath of fresh air amid the multiple magic books I've been reading.

However, it dragged. Maybe it is predictable, but I couldn't keep my focus on it after 300 pages. I read the last chapter just to know the ending, but I couldn't complete the last 75 or so pages.

RaimeyGallant Nice review. :) And welcome to Litsy! #LitsyWelcomeWagon Some of us put together Litsy tips to help new Littens navigate the site.

It was ok. Started out promising, but the plot was kind of predictable. Maybe I‘m just bored with the genre and need a break for a bit.

She‘s a master with weaving in subplots. I was a voluntary prisoner to this book the whole time I read it, reading huge chunks at a time. However, the way it ended is creaming SEQUEL to me. It kills me! Aggg!

The title/cover did nothing for me. But I love this book! It has joined the ranks of my top 3 of the year. Kate's father was a traitor, having tried to kill the king, and that has left her with the name Traitor Kate. She has to hide her wilder magic ability to speak with/control animals, else she be just for that as well, since wilder magic is illegal. Then she rescues her old friend, Prince Corwin, from a drake attack and things begin to change.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Sounds good! 1y
tonyahoswalt @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I wish I had more room to give it a better review. I really enjoyed it! I'll try to get a review up on my blog in a day or two. 1y

I'm approximately half way through Onyx and Ivory and here are a few thoughts -- I love the book so far! I just think the title and cover aren't all that appealing or attention grabbing, and I worry that readers will pass the book over because of that. If I still love it when I finish, I'm going to spread the word so hopefully it won't go unappreciated.

kamoorephoto I read this some time ago when I was on the ‘street team‘...I think it‘s excellent, I didn‘t want it to end 💓💓💓💓 1y

Look at this lovely map in Onyx and Ivory! Does the watery are just above Seva look like a dragon head to you? I don't know yet if it's meant to, just starting the book. There are flightless dragons in the story according to the summary, so maybe so. #yareads #dragons #bookmaps

Today marks the second day of the #SFFTBRChallenge, and I finished Onyx & Ivory for prompt 23. If this is not a Gorgeous cover I don't know what is.
The story was good, too. There were some minor things were it seemed the characters were acting dumb so the story could progress, but overall I liked the story.
WARNING: This is probably going to be a series. Just so you know.

Schnoebs Is it too late to sign up? 1y
DuckOfDoom @Schnoebs I can't partner you up anymore, but you can end me an email to untote.seifenblasen@gmail.com to sign up! I will email you the challenge prompts back :) 1y

DuckOfDoom @Richryan52 @hermyknee @Schnoebs The awesome @LibrarianRyan and @julesG have both said a second partner to chat about books would be fine for them. In case you are interested. If I remember correctly Jules wanted to read about 20? Books, so you don't have to commit to 50 to find a partner 😊 1y
Richryan52 I‘m open to anything 1y
DuckOfDoom @julesG well one has to get creative with email names. When I was 15 I painted some undead soap bubbles rising from their graves and it was one of the names where I did not have to add numbers to! 1y
Schnoebs @julesG @LibrarianRyan @Richryan52 @hermyknee if anyone wants to pair up let me know! I don‘t have a real plan for conquering this list or how many I‘ll read. It‘s going to be more of a fun wing it situation for the year to try and reduce my giant TBR. If you want to partner up, my email is schnoebs13@yahoo.com 1y

This line is from the tagged book: “Hers was wilder magic, outlawed and secret and good only for influencing animals,” and I was immediately put in mind of the pictured book. I wonder if Mindee Arnette is a Tortall fan.

I enjoyed it overall. A few times I had to take a break and read a different book because it's heavy, physically and metaphorically. The story was unique and the writing style was pleasant. World building and character development were also very well done. I do not like the cliffhanger. A reviewer on GoodReads said it was a quick read, I most definitely disagree.

This awesome epic fantasy that I‘ve been on the ‘Street Team‘ for (as a ‘Relay Rider‘) is finally being released tomorrow! Onyx and Ivory is one of the best books I‘ve read this year in the fantasy genre, filled with dark monsters, forbidden magic, and a cast of vibrant, edgy characters. The main character ‘Traitor Kate‘ has ‘wilder magic‘, and can communicate with animals with her mind; her character stuck with me. Read this one!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Congrats @IheartYA 💓🙌🏼😽👏🏼🎉🦄 on your massive milestone and thank you for #15kgiveaway!!
So I have sooo many anticipated reads but here are 3:
1 Boneless Mercies
The Dark Descent Of Elizabeth Frankenstein
The Death Of Mrs. Westaway
2 I recommend the tagged book ‘Onyx and Ivory‘, which is out on 5/29/18, which I just finished reading; it‘s EPIC!
3 Three littens - @Gissy @Alicia @crazycatlady

💓😽🤞🏼Congrats again, Patty!

IheartYA Your recommended book is high on my TBR! Thank you 😉 2y
kamoorephoto @IheartYA It really is one of the best so far in 2018; boost it up on your TBR!! It‘s really an EPIC read. There‘s SO much going on in it, but it‘s not confusing...but it IS absorbing. I loved the main character Kate, and her magic talent, that she has to keep hidden, where she can communicate with animals. It‘s dark, magical, and beautiful, all at once. It‘s one I plan to own, despite having read the ARC. Will fully review soon. 2y
