This is a weekly meme where any one can choose a random book from their Goodreads TBR and highlight it. Once you choose a book and create your post, make sure you link and reference the new host, @Budget Tales Book Blog. Eventually, I will try to find a rhyme or reason to my choices, but for now, each week will feature a random one that I mean to read soon!
This Week’s Selection:
Silver in the Bone (Silver in the Bone #1) by Alexandra Bracken
A series opener inspired by Arthurian legend and fueled by love, revenge, and pure adrenaline!
Tamsin Lark didn’t ask to be a Hollower. As a mortal with no magical talent, she was never meant to break into ancient crypts, or compete with sorceresses and Cunningfolk for the treasures inside. But after her thieving foster father disappeared without so much as a goodbye, it was the only way to keep herself—and her brother, Cabell—alive.
Ten years later, rumors are swirling that her guardian vanished with a powerful ring from Arthurian legend. A run-in with her rival Emrys ignites Tamsin’s hope that the ring could free Cabell from a curse that threatens both of them. But they aren’t the only ones who covet the ring.
As word spreads, greedy Hollowers start circling, and many would kill to have it for themselves. While Emrys is the last person Tamsin would choose to partner with, she needs all the help she can get to edge out her competitors in the race for the ring. Together, they dive headfirst into a vipers’ nest of dark magic, exposing a deadly secret with the power to awaken ghosts of the past and shatter her last hope of saving her brother. . . .
The cover and synopsis is what immediately appealed to me. Alexandra Bracken has written a lot of novels on my TBR, but I have, at least, read one of her novels, Lore. I enjoyed that novel a lot and it had a nice unique flare so I cannot wait to see what Bracken does with this story. If this novel works out well, then I look forward to reading the rest of the series when the next novels are published.
One thought on “~ Goodreads Monday: Silver in the Bone (Silver in the Bone #1) ~”
That does sound like a good book. I’ve not read Lore, but I have seen it around!
Have a great week!
