"Enchanting, visceral, and twisty"-- New York Times bestselling author of Ash Princess, Laura Sebastian "BLOODLEAF feels like a classic in the making." - Sarah Holland, New York Times bestselling author of Everless A roar of a dark and luscious epic fantasy that's layered with heady romance, bloodthirsty magic, and ghostly intrigue--an absolutely wicked delight. Princess Aurelia is a prisoner to her crown and the heir that nobody wants. Surrounded by spirits and banned from using her blood-magic, Aurelia flees her country after a devastating assassination attempt. To escape her fate, Aurelia disguises herself as a commoner in a new land and discovers a happiness her crown has never allowed. As she forges new bonds and perfects her magic, she begins to fall for a man who is forbidden to rule beside her. But the ghosts that haunt Aurelia refuse to abandon her, and she finds herself succumbing to their call as they expose a nefarious plot that only she can defeat. Will she be forced to choose between the weight of the crown and the freedom of her new life?

This one was a total #NetGalleyGamble for me- and one that panned out! The world-building in this YA Fantasy is a bit clunky and rushed at first, but once you pass that, it‘s a fun and entertaining read! It‘s not the most unpredictable read, but I think it‘s appropriate for its intended audience and I‘m definitely curious to see where the sequel will take these likable characters!

Rating-5/5 Stars
So freaking good! I didn‘t even know this was a retelling of a fairytale. So, that‘s cool. I just loved the world building and the character growth. Plus, the magic system was executed really well and I want to see more of it. I could not put this down and cannot wait for book two! Also, I loved how I got this at B&N even though it doesn‘t release until 3/12/19.

Perfect for fans of RED QUEEN and UPROOTED, Crystal Smith‘s debut novel, BLOODLEAF, is an imaginative retelling of the Grimm Fairy tale “The Goose Girl” that takes a ghostly mystery and sets it inside an epic fantasy world.

These ARCs are getting very creative in their marketing.

"The gallows had been erected in the shadows of the clock tower, partly so that the spectators could witness the executions without the nuisance of the sun in their eyes, and partly so that the Tribunal could keep its killings on precise schedule."

Wow that's how chapter one STARTS? Buckle up!!

Lately I haven't found much time for reading and I don't like it! Funny how life happens all at once and then there are slow spots. I'm hoping it slows down again soon. I really want to get back into books! Like this good one!

brianherbergerbooks I picked up a copy of Bloodleaf last weekend. Looking forward to it. 11mo
SMayWrites @brianherbergerbooks I think I really like it. Hard to tell when I only get 15 minute snippets. I like to sit and read and really delve into the story. I might reread it when I finish. 11mo
