Synopsis:
Valory’s power is different . . . it’s dangerous, unruly, and destructive. But can she channel it to crush a cunning enemy and save the realm from chaos?

 

Welcome to Nissera, land of three kingdoms and home to spectacular magic.

 

A century after her legendary ancestors overcame a bloodthirsty tyrant, seventeen-year-old Valory Braiosa attends a training academy for elicromancers, immortal beings with magical gifts. Yet Valory’s immense power seems impossible to tame, and she faces imprisonment by the Nisseran authorities. Then a forbidden resurrection spell awakens a long-dormant evil, and Valory may be the only one who can vanquish this terrifying villain. Together with a band of allies—including an old friend; a haughty princess; and a mysterious, handsome stranger—Valory must learn to harness her power and fight back.

 

Weaving together her imaginative world of gritty fairytale magic with snippets from Beauty and the Beast and other classic stories, Hannah West’s dark and dangerous adventure is a gripping, immersive companion to her acclaimed debut, Kingdom of Ash and Briars. This richly packaged edition includes an illustrated family tree, detailed map, and embossed jacket with shimmering metallic effects.

Review of Realm of Ruins

Review (4.5 Stars): Realm of Ruins was an amazing story with rich, descriptive characters and a storyline that will keep you entertained for hours.  I loved Valory as she tried to tame her powers and fight against a foe that she seemed to be the only that would be able to destroy. This is a literary world that you will instantly connect with and I enjoyed every minute of it.  I would strongly recommend reading the first book so you could follow along with the characters better but I still loved this story.  Can’t wait to see what this author puts out next.
