This was darkness.

Of course, I was sightless, so darkness was all I had ever known. It lived in me, on me, like scars written on my skin. But this darkness went deeper. Thicker. Denser.
Friday 56 (from 56% on my Kindle):
I inhaled uneasily. From that statement, it would not seem that she viewed me kindly. I especially did not think she would link arms with me and carry on as though we were the best of friends.
This week I am reading Rise of Fire by Sophie Jordan. I got this eARC from Edelweiss. Here is the description from Amazon:
New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan’s romantic, sweeping fantasy Reign of Shadows continues in this suspenseful sequel, Rise of Fire.

Luna and Fowler have escaped the kingdom of Relhok, but they haven’t escaped the darkness. When a battle against the dark dwellers mortally injures Fowler, Luna is faced with a choice: put their fate in the hands of mysterious strangers or risk losing Fowler forever.

Desperate to keep the one bright part of her life alive, Luna accepts the help of soldiers from a nearby kingdom. Lagonia’s castle offers reprieve from the dangerous outside world—until the King discovers both Fowler and Luna’s true ties to Relhok and their influence over the throne.

Now pawns in each kingdom’s political game, Luna and Fowler are more determined than ever to escape and build the life they’ve been dreaming of. But their own pasts have a tight hold on their hearts and their destinies. Luna must embrace the darkness and fire within her before she loses not only Fowler but the power she was destined to inherit.


  1. The first sentence of your tease got my attention.

  2. Thus one seems interesting. Enjoy your current read!

  3. I've never read a book that was in the point of view of a blind character. Sounds interesting.
    My Friday post features The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry.

  4. That beginning pulled me right in! I love the other books I have read of Sophie Jordan's though, so I might like this one too. Happy weekend!

  5. The flow of the writing is captivating. I'm very curious now. And I've not read this author yet.
