Y’all aren’t ready.
Hell, I wasn’t ready when I saw the email with this cover hit my inbox this morning. I should have timed my posts about Chloe’s An Heir Comes to Rise series (books 1-4 so far) a bit better so you would already have an idea of just how excited I am about this new series she’s getting ready to launch.
But those posts are coming next week, so for now, just know I love her writing, her characters and her world that she created in An Heir Comes to Rise, so I’m so damn excited for this new book/series. It’s a New Adult Dark Romance Fantasy…with explicit spice.
It’s like it was tailor made for me. I already know I’m going to inhale it the first chance I get. I mean, just read the synopsis and tell me you don’t want to read it.
If you do, I’ll one hundred percent thing you’re lying.
For fans of From Blood & Ash and Shadow & Bone. Star-crossed hearts bleed and the first sparks of war ignite in this dark romantic fantasy loosely inspired by the Greek myth of Astraea and the fall of the Golden Age.
In a world abandoned by the celestial guardians and left to suffer a tyrant king’s reign, all Astraea knows is safety in seclusion. With fragmented memories of only five years of her life, she’s determined to discover more about her past, even if that means fleeing the cruel arms that hold her safe from the wicked vampires rumored to roam the land.
But when Astraea stumbles upon the mysterious Nyte, she soon realizes determination alone isn’t enough to guard her heart. He lingers like the darkness that expands between the stars, and soon she discovers her captor’s wicked means of control weren’t based on a lie to keep her under locks after all. In her desperation, Astraea accepts Nyte’s help before she can decide if she might have sold her allegiance to one of the bloodthirsty beings the people of her world fear.
Once their bargain is struck, Astraea’s chance to escape comes in the form of accompanying her best friend Cassia to the King’s Central. There on royal territory it’s the centenary of the Libertatem, a succession of trials hosted by the king in which five human lands compete for a cycle of safety from the vampires seeking blood, claiming souls, and savaging after dark. So when tragedy strikes, Astraea must decide if taking the place of a murdered participant for the safety of her kingdom is a ruse is worth dying for, or if protection—and the answers to her past—really are her strongest desires.
AND IT’S VAMPIRES. I fucking love vampires.
Oh, I was excited before, but now I have absolutely no chill. I’m such trash for vampires, and this book sounds like it’s going to be damn amazing and I cannot wait to read it.
And now, without further ado – the cover for The Stars are Dying
I absolutely love this cover, I think it’s so stunning. If I didn’t already know what this book was about, based on the cover alone I would one-click it, pick it up in stores and buy it. It’s so pretty and I honestly cannot wait to see it in real life.
I hope you put this book on your radar, add it to your TBRs and pre-order it – I will most definitely be doing that.
