It's time for a new book club author announcement post! For this year's Flights of Fantasy Reading Challenge (which you can still sign up for!), Rachel & I decided to team up every other month to read a book from a fantasy author we've never tried before. And we want to invite YOU to join us!
This month, we're going to be reading a novel from Sharon Shinn. The reason she came onto our radar is because one of our favorite authors, Sarah J. Maas, loves her, and recommends her books a lot. Rachel & I both have a lot of love for Sarah and respect for her opinions, so we're really excited to be reading a Shinn book this month! Like the previous book clubs, there are no specific dates for reading this book. You basically get the next two months (September and October) to read it (and the rest of the series, if you so choose). Hope some of you will join in!
Troubled Waters by Sharon Shinn
Series: Elemental Blessings #1
Publication Date: September 27, 2011
Zoe Ardelay receives astonishing and unwelcome news: she has been chosen to become the king’s fifth wife. Forced to go to the royal city, she manages to slip away and hide on the shores of the mighty river.
It’s there that Zoe realizes she is a coru prime ruled by the elemental sign of water. She must return to the palace, not as an unwilling bride for the king, but a woman with power in her own right. But as Zoe unlocks more of the mysteries of her blood — and the secrets of the royal family — she must decide how to use her great power to rise above the deceptions and intrigue of the royal court.
