From Blood and Ash is the first book in the ongoing series. It begins with an 18 year old girl who has been chosen by the gods to become the Maiden. Poppy was chosen because of her power which allows her to sense emotions, however very few characters know this. Being the maiden is a great honour to everyone but Poppy. She is forced to endure the solitude of her life and the torture behind closed doors. One night as Poppy and her guard go for a--

The prince from this kingdom is coming for her and no one knows what he looks like. Poppy continues to live her life in fear of being abducted and being the Maiden. Throughout the story she begins to connect to her new guard who swore to protect her with his life.-- 2y

If you like books that focus on wars between kingdoms and high fantasy I would recommend this book to you. The author Jennifer L. Armentrout wrote From Blood and Ash in first person point of view.

Serpent & Dove | Shelby Mahurin

Serpent & Dove is a fantasy novel based around the era in Europe when witches were burned. A witch named Louise has fled her coven to escape her past when she suddenly finds herself being forced into a marriage with one of the leading men of the witch hunt. Keeping her identity a secret from those around her and staying low so her coven wont find her is the main priority. I recommend this book to readers who like enemies to lovers storylines-

Gabrielle.Friesen Along with readers who enjoy magic. A motif in this book is the challenging of prejudices and undermining the preconceived notions on what's right and wrong. This is important because often people make assumptions thats not necessarily based on facts and Serpent & Dove bring you into a world where keeping an open mind is essential. 2y
