A Book of Spirits and Thieves by Morgan Rhodes
Release Date: June 23rd, 2015
Crystal Hatcher, Modern-day Toronto: It’s a normal afternoon in her father’s antique bookshop when Crys witnesses the unthinkable: her little sister Becca collapses into a coma after becoming mesmerized by a mysterious book written in an unrecognizable language.
Maddox Corso, Ancient Mytica: Maddox Corso doesn’t think much of it when he spots an unfamiliar girl in his small village. Until, that is, he realizes that she is a spirit, and he is the only one who can see or hear her. Her name is Becca Hatcher, and she needs Maddox to help get her home.
Farrell Grayson, Modern-day Toronto: Rich and aimless Farrell Grayson is thrilled when the mysterious leader of the ultra-secret Hawkspeare Society invites him into the fold. But when he learns exactly what he has to do to prove himself, Farrell starts to question everything he thought he knew about family, loyalty, and himself….
Fate has brought these young people together, but ancient magic threatens to rip them apart.
My Thoughts: AHHHHHHH. I DIDN’T EVEN READ THE SYNOPSIS. I have a reason for that. I’ve only read the first book in the Falling Kingdom series, and I really don’t want to be spoiled for anything. I kinda glanced/skimmed through it and I don’t think there are any spoilers. But in complete honesty, I don’t want to know much about this book yet because I haven’t read the second and third book in the Falling Kingdoms series. I’m just really excited because I loved Falling Kingdoms and I want to read more from this world (I really need to get on reading the series). From the little that I do know about this book, I believe it takes someone from our modern day and puts them into Mytica, which just sounds unbelievably cool to me.
What book are you most looking forward to this month?
