A great story of transformation through the pain. It's about the young women cursed to turn everything she touches into ice and the man who braves the winter storm to be near her. The author describes in detail the tale of survival, change, sacrifice, and love. It has the charm of an old fairytale with life lessons to learn.

YA Fantasy

This fantasy adventure tells the story of Katsa, an odd girl who doesn't know herself. She lives in a world where selected people are given a Grace, a special talent that can be anything from dancing to swimming. Katsa’s is killing. As the king’s niece, she is forced to use her extreme skills as his thug. But Katsa learns to decipher the true nature of her Grace and uses it for good.

In the world where fair folk live forever but cannot feel deeply or create things with their hands like humans, they seek the craft of mortals in exchange for enchantments. A young woman is an artist that craves none of their gifts. But when a fair prince wants his portrait done, she catches a glimpse of humanity in his eyes, setting events in motion that will change their destinies.

This book is a series of three, and I am on the second one now. I was drawn to the main character, a young woman who lived through personal tragedy that left her body broken, but not her spirit. Her heart is a mechanical clock, and every hour it ticks could be her last. All she wants is to survive long enough to avenge her family, but her quest takes her on the adventure she didn't expect.

Read the first book of three and got attached to all the main characters. Avry, strong and compassionate, is the last healer in the land. Everyone is hunting her down. Kerrick, a man with a wounded past, protects her so that she can heal the leader who is capable of stopping the war. The only problem is that it may cost Avry her life, and Kerrick might care too much to allow it.

Fairy Tale Reimagined 

This novel is light and fun, although, I didn't read the subsequent books (just the spoilers in the reviews to know what happens). The beginning is entertaining. Kat is drawn from her world into the story of Cinderella through the book. She can only get out if she is able to finish the story. It's a fast and easy read.

College Fae Series 

This is a fun contemporary YA fantasy. The action takes place at a European university where the fae and humans attend classes together as they figure out love and friendship. It's about a human who broke up with a siren and might wither away as a result and an unwanted fae roommate who might just be the one to save him.

Sands of Arawiya Duology

Zafira is the Hunter, disguising herself as a man when she braves the cursed forest of the Arz to feed her people. Nasir is the Prince of Death, assassinating those foolish enough to defy his autocratic father, the sultan. Both of them are sent on an impossible mission that might save or ruin their realm. This fantasy is set in the world inspired by ancient Arabia. 

Kaufman & Kristoff

Space Opera

I don't usually read books set in space but this was a fun one. It is also set from the perspective of multiple people which is unusual. The two main characters, a girl lost in time and a boy from a race that looks like fae, who is bonded to love and protect her, were my favorites. And she is the one who will hopefully save the Universe in the end. Waiting for book 3 to come out.
