1. SPIN THE DAWN
Maia is the epitome of a strong, female character. Just like in Mulan, with no eligible male heir able to assist the emperor, Maia takes it upon herself to represent her family and restore honor to their name. In a time where women hold no power, she takes it upon herself to swallow her pride, dress like her brother, and hide her true identity from everyone else.
2. THE GIRL THE SEA GAVE BACK
In a story of deceit, death, peace, and most importantly, family, The Girl the Sea Gave Back doesn’t disappoint! This novel left me wanting more and I can see so many more spin-offs that Young can grace us with (please, pretty please!).
What I loved most about this novel is the ending! There were two things that threw me off guard, although one was kind of predictable. Loves of Twilight will love this, however, it is completely different than Twilight. More like lovers of Jacob Black will love this.
4. HOUSE OF SALT AND SORROWS
Craig introduces readers to a place where ghosts roam freely, death could be the next step you take, and nothing is truly as it appears. The author does a great job of creating the creepy murder mystery atmosphere, but adds a touch of paranormal into the picture.
5. THE WICKED KING
The Wicked King gives readers the debauchery and treachery similar to that of George R.R. Martin’s works. The character development is phenomenal. I am pleasantly surprised by this second novel not being a fluffer and actually having a plot line. The last third of the book is sure to give readers a ride and leave them wanting more.
King is one of the best authors out there and it is apparent in this work. Misery takes readers into the psychological mind of King where obsession, addiction, and overcoming adversity rules.
