A grumpy professor travels to a remote village to study the local fae, but she finds more than she expects. Filled with suspicious villagers, a devoted pet, and a handsome rival professor, I loved it all!
When a woman accidentally uncovers a secret that paints her employer as either careless or traitorous, she’s shipped off to die as cannon fodder in an intergalactic war. Instead, she rescues one of the most deadly assassins alive and they escape together. Too bad she hates him… right? A delightful blend of fantasy and science fiction.
An orc gives up adventuring to open a coffee shop in a town that’s never heard of coffee. Soft, lovely, and filled with found family goodness.
A woman braves entering the forbidden prison of mages in order to bring back the rightful prince of the realm, only to find that he’s not interested in rescue. But she’s not so easily thwarted…
So I was super late to this party, but I adored this book and the next one (A Court of Mist and Fury), and I’m working my way through the rest of the series. Magic, fae, a strong main character, an interesting world, and plenty of twists and turns!
