Stacking The Shelves is hosted by Tynga´s Reviews and is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!
I am also connecting with Bought Borrowed & Bagged in homage of Barron´s Books & Baubles from Karen Marie Moning´s smash hit series, Fever, hosted by Braine at Talk Supe.
The past week was a quiet one when it comes to me and buying books. I was and am so busy reading to achieve my goal of a reading challenge, to keep track on my reading plan for this year, and to get all the errands done that come along with this time of year, that I barely had the time to go online or in an actual bookshop and buy one. Missing those hours …
And I did a happy dance with a broad smile on my face when I received my ARC of Hunt The Dawn by Abbie Roads and found out that she had signed it! Not only with her name but she also wrote some nice words and put something else into the package *yay*
Meira will do anything to save her world. With Angra trying to break through her mental defenses, she desperately needs to learn to control her own magic – so when the leader of a mysterious order from Paisly offers to teach her, Meira jumps at the chance. But the true solution to stopping the Decay lies in a labyrinth deep beneath the Season Kingdoms. To defeat Angra, Meira will have to enter the labyrinth, destroy the very magic she´s learning to control – and make the biggest sacrifice of all.
Mather will do anything to save his queen. He needs to rally the Children of the Thaw, find Meira – and finally tell her how he really feels. But with a plan of attack that leaves no kingdom unscathed and a major betrayal within their ranks, winning the war – and protecting Meira – slips further and further out of reach.
Ceridwen will do anything to save her people. Angra had her brother killed, stole her kingdom, and made her a prisoner. But when she´s freed by an unexpected ally who reveals a shocking truth behind Summer´s slave trade, Ceridwen must take action to save her true love and her kingdom, even if it costs her what little she has left.
As Angra unleashes the Decay on the world, Meira, Mather, and Ceridwen must bring the kingdoms of Primoria together … or lose everything.

Risking everything to transform himself and breach Gold society, Darrow has battled to survive the cutthroat rivalries that breed Society´s mightiest warriors, climbed the ranks, and waited patiently to unleash the revolution that will tear the hierarchy apart from within. Finally, the time has come. But devotion to honor and hunger for vengeance run deep on both sides. Darrow and his comrades-in-arms face powerful enemies without scruple or mercy. Among them are some Darrow once considered friends. To win, Darrow will need to inspire those shackled in darkness to break their own chains, unmake the world their cruel masters have built, and claim a destiny too long denied – and too glorious to surrender.
