Omslagtekst:
Return to the darkly beautiful world of The Sin Eater’s Daughter with a sequel that will leave you awed, terrified . . . and desperate for more.

Ever since her brother Lief disappeared, Errin’s life has gone from bad to worse. Not only must she care for her sick mother, she has to scrape together rent money by selling illegal herbal cures. But none of that compares to the threat of the vengeful Sleeping Prince whom the Queen just awoke from his enchanted sleep.

When her village is evacuated as part of the war against the Sleeping Prince, Errin is left desperate and homeless. The only person she can turn to is the mysterious Silas, a young man who buys deadly poisons from Errin, but won’t reveal why he needs them. Silas promises to help her, but when he vanishes, Errin must journey across a kingdom on the brink of war to seek another way to save her mother and herself. But what she finds shatters everything she believed about her world, and with the Sleeping Prince drawing nearer, Errin must make a heartbreaking choice that could affect the whole kingdom.

Omslagtekst:
Sixteen-year-old Twylla lives in the castle. But although she’s engaged to the prince, no one speaks to her. No one even looks at her. Because Twylla isn’t a member of the court. She’s the executioner. As the goddess-embodied, Twylla kills with a single touch. So each week, she’s taken to the prison and forced to lay her hands on those accused of treason. No one will ever love her. Who could care for a girl with murder in her veins? Even the prince, whose royal blood supposedly makes him immune to her touch, avoids her.

But then a new guard arrives, a boy whose playful smile belies his deadly swordsmanship. And unlike the others, he’s able to look past Twylla’s executioner robes and see the girl, not the goddess. Yet a treasonous romance is the least of Twylla’s problems. The queen has a plan to destroy her enemies-a plan that requires an unthinkable sacrifice. Will Twylla do what it takes to protect her kingdom? Or will she abandon her duty in favor of a doomed love?

DSC03493Hoi allemaal!
Eigenlijk wil ik heel graag een boek gelijk recenseren wanneer ik het uitgelezen heb. Maar ik heb nog meer dan 50 recensies in drafts staan die ik wel steeds vaker probeer in te plannen en ik heb nog een stuk of 17 boeken op mijn lijstje staan die nog gerecenseerd moeten worden. Ik ben goed op weg, maar het gaat nog wel even duren tot ik bij ben. Dus ik had een ander plan. Aan het eind van iedere maand laat ik jullie zien welke boeken ik die maand gelezen heb, en dan geef ik een korte recensie. De uitgebreide recensie komt dan later nog, maar dan zijn jullie iets meer op de hoogte. Ik hoop dat jullie dit een leuk idee vinden!
