In the chaos, an evil chancellor murdered the king and queen and seized their throne. Luna, Relhok's lost princess, has been hiding in a tower ever since. Luna's survival depends on the world believing she is dead.But that doesn't stop Luna from wanting more. When she meets Fowler, a mysterious archer braving the woods outside her tower, Luna is drawn to him despite the risk. When the tower is attacked, Luna and Fowler escape together. But this world of darkness is more treacherous than Luna ever realized.With every threat stacked against them, Luna and Fowler find solace in each other. But with secrets still unspoken between them, falling in love might be their most dangerous journey yet.

A quick adventure. Action, love, monsters, a secluded tower in the wood, a kickass heroine princess, the fight for survival, the necessary elements of a fantasy...it's all here. And with that cliffhanger, how could I not read #2? Onward I go!

Stayed up till 3am to finish this book, only for it to end in a cliff hanger! Ugh. Overall I really liked this book. It was a fast read with a sweet love story. Not a terribly deep plot, but enjoyable nonetheless.

I made time to open my #scififantasyswap box before work this morning. @HufflepuffGirl90 thank you so much! I love everything! 💕 Reign of Shadows is from my TBR - it looks fascinating, I adore the cover, and it‘s even signed! The Girl With the Glass Feet looks interesting as well. I‘m going to have to hide the candy from my husband and son. One can never have too many pairs of cozy socks and these will be perfect for Easter weekend 😊 cont‘d...

MeganAnn ... the unicorn pin is adorable! I‘ve been meaning to read Ender‘s Shadow for years as I loved Ender‘s Game as a child. My husband and son are going to want to read this one too as we listened to Ender‘s Game on audio last year during our road trip vacation. And you probably didn‘t know it, but you used my two favorite colors for the wrapping paper! 🥰Thank you again @HufflepuffGirl90 for everything!! 💙✨ #sffs (edited) 8mo
MeganAnn Also, big thanks to @Avanders for hosting this swap themed around my favorite genre! 😘✨💙 8mo

LibrarianRyan The Girl with glass feet is interesting. We had it for our One Summer One Book selection a few years ago. 8mo
HufflepuffGirl90 I‘m so glad you like everything; I had so much fun choosing it all for you! Plus serendipity with the wrapping paper! 💙💜💙 8mo
monalyisha I‘m bizarrely VERY jealous of those socks. 😂 They look so warm & I love the colors! 8mo
MeganAnn @LibrarianRyan that‘s good to hear! It wasn‘t from my TBR list (but I love surprise books best of all!) so I was excited to see it. The premise sounds interesting for sure! 8mo
MeganAnn @monalyisha they are SO soft and cozy feeling and the colors make me instantly happy. I can‘t wait to wear them! 8mo

I have to say this book was kind of disappointing? I don't know if I just hyped it up too much but it didn't live up to how great I expected it to be. It's not in any way an awful book, though. I like Luna, I like her a good bit. I'm not even sure what part/parts of the book I didn't connect with exactly but it all just fell a little flat for me. I could see where the author was wanting to take it but, for me, she didn't get me there with her. 3🌟

ReadingSusan Aw that‘s too bad. Gorgeous cover. 1y
InBooksILive Yes, the cover is so beautiful, that is for sure! I'm going to read the 2nd book still cause I really hate to leave a series unfinished so hopefully its goes better for me! 1y

This was a book that I went into with absolutely no expectations, because I had not heard anyone really talking about it. In just a couple of chapters, I was in love. When I saw there was a second book, I had to have it 📚 I still haven't seen many talk about it, but I give it a thumbs up!!

Ich habe mich auf ein neues Fantasyabenteuer gefreut und habe am Ende nur eine Romanze eingewickelt in etwas Fantasy bekommen. Besonders tiefgründig waren die Charaktere auch nicht aber die Geschichte hat Potenzial und der Schreibstil war gut.

I expected a nice high fantasy story but don't get what I want. It was a nice idea but not that well made. I hope the 2. book will be better. The writing style was nice but to much love story!

I adore retellings, and this was no exception.

As a Rapunzel story it was awesome. As a fantasy story it was super detailed and intense. As a love story it crushed me and made me tear up.

I already bought book 2 🙈

But as a whole, this book was so much more than i thought it would be. I was expecting Mother Gothel but instead found a tyrannical king.

At least there was still a Flynn Rider. 😏

4.5⭐️

Here's yet another book I am super excited to read soon💜 I absolutely love the cover and cannot wait to dive into this one. It sounds like it has elements of a fairy retelling within it, and I'm all for that.

Love this dark fantasy set in a world with almost no light and scary, zombie-like creatures!!! Definitely worth a try if you want a romance-y fantasy set in a unique world!

I got Reign of Shadows on kindle first bringing down the price and making it cheaper having the book in both formats rather than just in one. Also I've been dying for Paw Enforcement cause I can't help myself when it comes to a book with a dog as one of the main characters. 🐾🐾 Shatter Me and Rot and Ruin have both been on my wish list forever so those are excellent finds on sale at $4.95 and $6.95!!!

398.2 I loved Reign of Shadows and the Shatter Me series! So good 3y
ReadingRover @398.2 I'm super excited for those two! I've been waiting a while for them to go on sale so I could get them 😆 3y

Last one for tonight unless I remember more (why does my digital library not track my check-outs?). Also not what I expected, interesting premise but I disliked the abrupt ending.

Just finished this audiobook tonight. Loved it! I didn't realize going in that the heroine is blind and it threw me for a loop when I learned that. My ears perked up and I thought "oh this is different."

398.2 I thought the same thing! It was something different. 3y

I went to a two author panel. Confession I really went to see the other author Victoria Aveyard (Glass Sword). I instantly wanted to read Reign of Shadows. Sophie was so passionate when she was talking about and I immediately liked the book before I read it. That's why I LOVE hearing authors talk about their work. Reign of Shadows is a twist on Rapunzel. Sometimes retellings can be totally predictable this one definitely wasn't.

melrailey I plan to go see both of these ladies in a couple of weeks. I just finished listening to this one last night and loved it! 3y
398.2 @melrailey They were probably one of my favorites to meet. Reign of Shadows really surprised me. I didn't think I would like it as mush as I did. 😀 3y

kay89 The Veronica Mars books are surprisingly good! Though it makes me miss the show even more! 3y
Vexingcircumstance I want to read the VM books but haven't gotten them yet. I can't do audio books. I have an audio processing issue that has always made being read to absolute torture. I get headaches and I can't follow the story at all. I have to stick to regular books. I wish I could do audio books. I wouldn't get so behind on my TBR list then. 3y

missjenniferlowe My library limits us to just 5 checkouts from Overdrive! Envious! 3y

readinginthedark @ahenke Yeah, I hadn't either. Just picked it up at work one day and breezed through it in less than a week (very fast for me)! 3y

I generally dislike fairy tales but I love Sophie Jordan's dragon series so I gave it a try. Can't do it. Too many ill-defined creepy things and way too explicitly Rapunzel for me. Sorry Sophie!

Badass blind protagonist. Creepy creatures and dark fantasy settings, lots of chemistry with the romance. My only complaint is that there's no sequel (yet). #fridayreads
