Fawkes by Nadine Brandes ~ Review

Fawkes

by Nadine Brandes

Released: July 10, 2018
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Genre: YA Fantasy
Pre-order Now: TBD | QBD | Dymocks


Thomas Fawkes is turning to stone, and the only cure to the Stone Plague is to join his father’s plot to assassinate the king of England.

Silent wars leave the most carnage. The wars that are never declared, but are carried out in dark alleys with masks and hidden knives. Wars where color power alters the natural rhythm of 17th century London. And when the king calls for peace, no one listens until he finally calls for death.

But what if death finds him first?

Keepers think the Igniters caused the plague. Igniters think the Keepers did. But all Thomas knows is that the Stone Plague infecting his eye is spreading. And if he doesn’t do something soon, he’ll be a lifeless statue. So when his Keeper father, Guy Fawkes, invites him to join the Gunpowder Plot—claiming it will put an end to the plague—Thomas is in.

The plan: use 36 barrels of gunpowder to blow up the Igniter King.

The problem: Doing so will destroy the family of the girl Thomas loves. But backing out of the plot will send his father and the other plotters to the gallows. To save one, Thomas will lose the other.

No matter Thomas’s choice, one thing is clear: once the decision is made and the color masks have been put on, there’s no turning back.



~ Paperback Princess Blurb ~

Fawkes by Nadine Brandes is a unique story and retelling of 17th century England, with a world of magic and masks, an exciting rebellion brewing, two magic forces to be reckoned with, it's exciting and a page turner.

About The Book

Mirage

by Somaiya Daud


Series: Mirage #1
Release Date: August 28th 2018
Publisher: Flatiron Books
Genre: YA Fantasy
Buy It Now: TBD | B&N | Kobo




In a star system dominated by the brutal Vathek empire, eighteen-year-old Amani is a dreamer. She dreams of what life was like before the occupation; she dreams of writing poetry like the old-world poems she adores; she dreams of receiving a sign from Dihya that one day, she, too, will have adventure, and travel beyond her isolated moon.

But when adventure comes for Amani, it is not what she expects: she is kidnapped by the regime and taken in secret to the royal palace, where she discovers that she is nearly identical to the cruel half-Vathek Princess Maram. The princess is so hated by her conquered people that she requires a body double, someone to appear in public as Maram, ready to die in her place.

As Amani is forced into her new role, she can’t help but enjoy the palace’s beauty—and her time with the princess’ fianc√©, Idris. But the glitter of the royal court belies a world of violence and fear. If Amani ever wishes to see her family again, she must play the princess to perfec-tion...because one wrong move could lead to her death.

~ Paperback Princess Blurb ~ 


A wonderful debut novel that will enthral readers from the very first page, with it's lush description, to it's poetic writing, this book is definitely a magical ride. If you enjoy The Wrath & The Dawn by Renee Ahdieh, you will love Mirage by Somaiya Daud. It has a similar writing style with the royal political intrigue. This was truly a wonderful journey, and I for one cannot wait till the sequel.
