Flamecaster | Cinda Williams Chima
Set in the world of the New York Times bestselling Seven Realms series, a generation later, this is a breathtaking story of dark magic, chilling threats, and two unforgettable characters walking a knife-sharp line between life and death. This dazzling beginning to a new series is indispensable for fans of Cinda Williams Chima and a perfect starting point for readers who are new to her work.Adrian sulHan, known as Ash, is a trained healer with a powerful gift of magicand a thirst for revenge. Ash is forced into hiding after a series of murders throws the queendom into chaos. Now hes closer than ever to killing the man responsible, the cruel king of Arden. With time running out, Ash faces an excruciating choice: Can he use his powers not to save a life but to take it?Abandoned at birth, Jenna Bandelow was told that the magemark on the back of her neck would make her a target. But when the Kings Guard launches a relentless search for a girl with a mark like hers, Jenna assumes that it has more to do with her role as a saboteur than any birth-based curse. Though Jenna doesnt know why shes being hunted, she knows that she cant get caught.Eventually, Ashs and Jennas paths will collide in Arden. Thrown together by chance and joined by their hatred of the ruthless king, they will come to rescue each other in ways they cannot yet imagine.

Continuation a generation later so neat to see that- war has continued though- fast plot, some unexpected but pleasing twists- didn't end but left fun loose ends to be sort of picked up in the next book.

I loved everything about this story except the romance, which was waaaay too insta-Love for my tastes. Definitely looking forward to the next book though!
Also, I think I might be the only teacher in the school who looks forward to proctoring regents exams - so much reading time, and I‘m getting paid to do it!

TheSpineView Getting paid to read... I'm in! Lucky dog! 6mo
Slajaunie This looks a lot like the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. Have you read these? 6mo
Johanna414 @Slajaunie yes, I‘m reading the final book in that series right now! I definitely think the covers for Flamecaster and it‘s sequels were designed to pull in Throne of Glass fans 6mo

I am slapping myself for waiting so long to start this series now that I'm almost finished with the first book. It is so good! I love the characters and the world is incredible. Now I have another series I only have the 1st book to and need to get the rest ASAP 🤷🏻‍♀️

Btw, does anyone else get Throne of Glass vibes from this cover? Cause that could easily be Celaena Sardothien. Or is it just me? Lol

I‘m having one of those days where I just want to read ALL THE BOOKS but there isn‘t enough time and it‘s stressing me out. Then one of my work friends walks into the library and hands me this because “it‘s really good and you have to read it!” UGH WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME?!?!

I was so excited to find a new series by Cinda Williams Chima! I was thrilled to realize that it is set in the Seven Realms. This book was awesome and I can hardly wait to read the next in the series!

I really enjoyed this book. Found this in the clearance section at BAM for 4.97. BEST FEELING EVER! It‘s been on my TBR list so I practically squeaked when I found it. It was a little slow for me in the middle but really picks up.

StaceyKondla Love the skeleton vulture!! Where did you get it? 2y
398.2 @StaceyKondla I KNOW!!!! I just bought it. I found it at JoAnn Fabrics. When I saw it I told my friend “Yep, definitely need this.” Lol 2y

A highly enjoyable YA fantasy. I ended up listening to this one on audiobook and the narrator does a great job.

Felt kinda cooped up but still wanted to finish my book—compromised by going to a bar. Cheers!

CocoReads Ha! I read a book at the bar last week. My hub was into the band and I was absolutely not so I went out on the patio where it was nice and cool and read one on my phone. 2y

Alright, got the maps out today for an adventure. You can travel to any fictional land, which is is and name ONE essential for your travels. I think I'd like to visit Rivendell or Lothlorien and I'd definitely bring an invisibility cloak. Being invisible would solve so many problems when traveling through dangerous places.

rubyslippersreads Oz, of course, and even though they are silver in the book, I need the ruby slippers. 😀 3y
Lidia I'd go to Oldtown and the Citadel from Game of Thrones. And I would bring a valyrian steel knife, they always come in handy ☺️ 3y
elkeo_TheBookDragon What a phenomenal photo! Books with maps are the best. So glad I found you to follow! 3y

At first I thought it was going to be a page turner but it slowed way down after the first couple chapters. It picked up again about two-thirds the way through and what an ending! So many questions. I can't wait to see what the next book holds. The shortcut that forced the start of the romance was dumb but I still enjoyed the character interactions. Not as good as the Seven Realms but enjoyable. #fantasy #yafantasy

GypsyKat This is on my TBR list, I'm just waiting for more of the series to come out before I start. Also, I love the cover! 😍 3y
Melissa_J Is this a new series? 3y
QueenOfWands It's pretty new. I think it will be a duology. The sequel is out in April here. Thankfully not too far off. I want to know what happens next! 3y

LibrarianRyan That doesn't look like Amazon. Which database do you use? 3y
bigdamnbookgeek @LibrarianRyan That is the "Goodreads Deals" daily email. They send me daily Amazon deals I might be interested in. 3y
LibrarianRyan I get that email. I don't use Amazon though. If I'm really interested I'll go look in iBooks or nook. iBooks preferably. 3y

Just listened to this with my husband and while this wasn't quite as good as the Seven Realms series it was still great and I am so excited for the next book.

If you loved the Seven Realms series then you are going to really enjoy this spinoff! But fair warning, a major SR character dies in the first 2 chapters of this book! You can totally read this without having read the OG series too, btw!
