To Be Read: Kindle Unlimited #2

I wasn’t sure whether or not I was going to do another one of these posts, however, the first one did so well that I thought, why not? 

I actually haven’t used Kindle Unlimited in a while, but I’ve seen that there is a deal for Prime members to get three months for £7.99 which I’d be a fool to miss out on. With that being said I have again sat down and had a look through the Kindle Unlimited store to see what it has to offer at the moment. 

I had chosen four more books which I plan to read over the next few months which are available for free with a Kindle Unlimited subscription. Do you think if I mention how much I like the service enough times Amazon will sponsor me? No, I didn’t think so either, but hey it was worth a try! 

The Near Witch by V.E Schwab

I have heard so much about V.E Schwab’s books that I thought it was about time I picked one up myself and what better way to try out her books than through kindle unlimited? I have not heard a lot about this book in particular but I know that her Shades of Magic series is very popular. 

I love all things witchy so I’m excited to give this a read, maybe I’ll even have a chance to read it before Halloween, well probably not but its a nice thought. 

Goodreads synopsis: “The Near Witch is only an old story told to frighten children.

If the wind calls at night, you must not listen. The wind is lonely, and always looking for company.

And there are no strangers in the town of Near.

These are the truths that Lexi has heard all her life.

But when an actual stranger-a boy who seems to fade like smoke-appears outside her home on the moor at night, she knows that at least one of these sayings is no longer true.

The next night, the children of Near start disappearing from their beds, and the mysterious boy falls under suspicion. Still, he insists on helping Lexi search for them. Something tells her she can trust him.

As the hunt for the children intensifies, so does Lexi’s need to know about the witch that just might be more than a bedtime story, about the wind that seems to speak through the walls at night, and about the history of this nameless boy.

Part fairy tale, part love story, Victoria Schwab’s debut novel is entirely original yet achingly familiar: a song you heard long ago, a whisper carried by the wind, and a dream you won’t soon forget.”  

Vortex Visions (Vortex Chronicles #1) by Elise Kova 

I absolutely adored the Air Awakens series so I am more than excited to give the Vortex Chronicles a go. Elise is definitely becoming one of my favourite authors and I can’t wait to read more of her work. 

This series is set in the same world as Air Awakens which really excites me. The magic in this world is one of my favourites and I know I keep saying it, but I can’t wait to read this. 

Goodreads synopsis: “A desperate princess, a magical traveller, and a watch that binds them together with the fate of a dying world.

Vi Solaris is the heir to an Empire she’s barely seen. Her parents sacrificed a life with her to quell a rebellion and secure peace with a political alliance. Now, three years past when her wardship should’ve ended, Vi will do anything to be reunited with her family.

The Empire is faltering beneath the burden of political infighting and a deadly plague. Yet, Vi can’t help but wonder if her inability to control her magic is the true reason her parents haven’t brought her home. Suspicion becomes reality when she unleashes powers she’s not supposed to have.

Powers that might well cost her the throne.

As Vi fights to get her magic under control, a mysterious stranger appears from across the world. He holds the keys to unlocking her full potential, but the knowledge has an unspeakable price — some truths, once seen, cannot be ignored.

All eyes are on her and Vi must make the hardest choice of her life: Play by the rules and claim her throne. Or, break them and save the world.” 

Oath Taker (Kingdom of Runes #1) by Audrey Grey

I don’t know about you but I keep seeing this book everywhere, like literally everywhere. I cannot scroll through any social media without seeing an ad for this book. So I am giving into the marketing pressure and I’m going to read this book. 

After seeing it everywhere I am interested to see whether it is actually any good. I will keep you posted on that don’t worry. 

The concept seems quite interesting and the Goodreads synopsis said it was perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas, so let’s see if it can live up to the hype. 

Goodreads synopsis: “Light magic is forbidden. 

Dark magic spells death. 

Haven has both.

After the Prince of Penryth saved her from captivity, seventeen-year-old Haven Ashwood spends her days protecting the kind prince and her nights secretly fighting the monsters outside the castle walls. 

When one of those monsters kidnaps Prince Bell, Haven must ally with Archeron Halfbane and his band of immortals to rescue her friend. 

Her quest takes her deep into the domain of a warped and vicious queen where the rules are simple: break her curse or die.

Lost in a land of twisted magic and fabled creatures, Haven finds herself unprepared, not just for the feelings she develops for Archeron, but for the warring powers raging inside her. 

Her rare and forbidden type of magic may be their only hope . . . but mixing light and dark comes with a steep price. 

Haven’s soul.

Faced with impossible love, heartbreaking betrayals, and a queen intent on destroying the realm, only one thing remains certain. 

Haven must shatter the curse or it will devour everything she loves.” 

A Whisper in the Dark (Charlie Travesty #1) by Jessi Elliott and K.J Sutton

This book has also been pinned as a must-read for fans of Sarah J. Maas and I am again going to put it to the test. This comparison does come from Crescent City which I am still yet to read, don’t ask why I just have not gotten around to buying it yet. 

I don’t mind a vampire story every now and again, although they’re definitely not my favourite, still, I think this sounds quite interesting. I love the idea of a disgraced vampire princess, sounds as I said before quite interesting.  

Goodreads synopsis: “A city ruled by vampires. A disgraced princess. A world underground.

Charlotte Travesty lives in a world of comfort. Glittering nightclubs, a lavish mansion, and a staff of humans at her beck and call. Being a royal vampire means her future is secured—all she has to do is get through the Awakening, an ancient ceremony every vampire experiences when they come of age.

But when her Awakening arrives at last, everything changes in one terrifying instant.

Cast from her home and rejected by the royal family, Charlie is forced into a life of fear and brutality. Where creatures called weepers live below the city, kept at bay by an unlucky sector of fighters enslaved by the very king who cast her out. Charlie now finds herself among the ranks.

She soon learns that weepers aren’t all she needs to fear in her new life. Other workers are dying in the tunnels below ground. Charlie knows that if she’s going to survive, she must form alliances with the very humans that despise her. But will she win their trust in time? Or will she die in the very darkness she was born to rule?”
