City of Ruin
The night the Prince of the East razed her village, Raina Bloodgood's life changed forever. Forced into someone else's war—and into the arms of the Witch Collector, Alexus Thibault—Raina discovered that everything she believed was wrong, and that she was capable of far more than anyone imagined.
Now, the Prince of the East has taken the Frost King as a pawn in his war against the Summerlands, causing Alexus's life to hang in the balance. To thwart the prince's endgame and prevent the Tiressian empire from returning to an age of gods, Raina, Alexus, and a band of Northlanders race against the sands of time to reach a mystical desert land where merciless assassins lurk around every corner.
In the midst of tragedy, Raina and Alexus fight to stay together and alive, all while a nefarious presence follows them straight to the jeweled gates of the Summerland queen's citadel—the City of Ruin. With much to fear, it's the terror of a past she shouldn't remember that Raina cannot cast from her dreams.
A past that's determined to find her. One way or another.
City of Ruin is book two in a thrilling romantic fantasy series, perfect for fans of Naomi Novik, Sarah J. Maas, and Jennifer L. Armentrout.
When I tell you I am absolutely REELING RIGHT NOW. This was a wild ride from start to finish and I am in love with Charissa forever now.
Wow the story and spice here! The plot moves at a great pace, and the action is fun. Some of the little twists were great! The ending also- I mean I need the 3rd book now. I enjoy the way the author writes
I was intrigued by the first book, enough to read this one. I liked this second book more. The story gets more interesting, the characters get more three dimensional and grey, as opposed to black and white. Excited to see where this goes.
