We’re in our first week of December releases! I can’t believe 2017 is almost done. So many amazing books came out this year, and I know just as many (if not more) are scheduled for 2018. This week I think I’m most looking forward to Ever the Brave, the first book in this series was just okay for me, I enjoyed but it was very typical fantasy, until the ending where we got a tease of something. Let me know what your most anticipated release is in the comments!

Ever the Divided. Ever the Feared. Ever the Brave.
After saving King Aodren with her newfound Channeler powers, Britta only wants to live a peaceful life in her childhood home. Unfortunately, saving the King has created a tether between them she cannot sever, no matter how much she’d like to, and now he’s insisting on making her a noble lady. And there are those who want to use Britta’s power for evil designs. If Britta cannot find a way to harness her new magical ability, her life—as well as her country—may be lost.
The stakes are higher than ever in the sequel to Ever the Hunted, as Britta struggles to protect her kingdom and her heart.
