Day Three: Your Favorite Series
I’m going to go with my second favorite series, because nothing holds a candle to my Harry Potter pedestal.
Yelena is about to be executed for murder, when she’s offered another choice: become a food taster for the Commander of Ixia. She’s trained to detect various poisons, and to be on the safe side (and make sure she doesn’t escape), Valek, the Chief of Security, doses her with Butterfly’s Dust—if she doesn’t take the daily antidote, she’ll suffer a painful death. While she deals with this particular predicament, other issues mount, including rebel forces and magical powers.
It’s full of action, magic, poison, kick ass heroines, steamy sexual tension and more. The characters and world are well developed, and I really enjoyed the plot. 5/5 on Goodreads.
Even though the last book was pretty disappointing, I’m going to have to go with the Under the Never Sky series by Veronica Rossi.
Aria has lived her entire life in a protected dome called Reverie, but when her mother goes missing she knows she must venture outside to try and find her. She meets a “wild” who is also looking for someone and realizes he is probably her only chance at staying alive.
I love the relationships, the writing, the setting, everything about the entire series. I really wish Rossi hadn’t ended it the way she did or even at all, but don’t let my disappointment in the final book deter you – READ THESE. 5/5 on Goodreads except the last one which still got 4/5.
