For the first time in print, Wonder Heart Books is proud to present Heirs of Fate, a paperback novella bindup by Amara Luciano. Enter the dark fantasy world of Gods’ Fate.

THREE YOUNG WOMEN. THREE DARK DESTINIES. ONE CHANCE TO CHANGE EVERYTHING.

Three spellbinding novellas in the Gods’ Fate world available in print for the first time.

BRIDE OF DREAMSIn order to escape her mother’s war-torn legacy, Diya must marry. In her homeland, marriage can mend decades of hostility; long-awaited truces suddenly become possible. But when her short trip to the altar ends in a curse upon her betrothed, Diya must rescue his soul from the gods—or risk the destruction of their villages.

HUNTRESS AND THE NIGHTINGALEOnce a huntress blessed by the gods, now Zahria is little more than an exalted murderer. As her royal lover continues to torment the desperate and dying people of the kingdom, her only solace exists within wineskins that never seem to run out—until she’s presented with a promising bargain: Destroy a cursed forest and sin against gods who have likely abandoned her… or remain forever imprisoned in a land not her own.

STORM MISTRESS Jade has no trouble remembering what her brave and foolish foray into the pirate quarter once cost her: blood and destruction. Now clever backdoor deals and swift thrusts of her hips bring her that much closer to stopping the monsters of her island home from abusing their power. But when a mysterious storm goddess kills one of her patrons—an essential member of a deadly captain’s crew—Jade’s plans threaten to crumble. To stay alive, she must defeat all her enemies, for her death will not win her the island’s game of shadows.

BOOK POST AND HAPPY MAIL!

Hi Wayfarers!

I recently received some books and stuff in the post that I wanted to share with you! I’m so excited because it’s all beautiful 😍

I read A Curse So Dark and Lonely last year and it’s one of my favourite fairytale retellings ever! I’ve been on the hunt for Sherwood for MONTHS, so I’m very excited to have that after all this time! The Wicked King and Queen of Air and Darkness are both Waterstones exclusives that arrived recently – stunning! And Honeymoon is from a book + chocolate exchange I participate in over the holidays (hence the Aero bar). I’m in love with the bookmarks, as well!

This mug and pouch arrived from my holiday mug exchange secret elf! They’re perfect for my collection.

Got this from a friend, and it’s really good so far 🙂

This was a combination of preorder incentives and signed books from friends who love me! Along with my High Lady of the Night Court stemless wine glass and a few ARCs I need to get to asap! Do you love my new Hocus Pocus pillowcase?? 😍

My sister sent us goodies for my birthday in October, but they didn’t arrive until January 🤣🤣 oh, customs, you kill me!

Anyway, I am thoroughly thrilled with it all and am massively appreciative to the wonderful people I have in my life.

How to Make Friends with the Dark by Kathleen Glasgow

I recently received a proof copy of Kathleen Glasgow’s upcoming novel, How to Make Friends with the Dark, which is a story of ‘friendship, family and love, but also filled with grief and kids trying to survive in a world where most adults have failed them,’ says Glasgow.

This novel is beautiful and I’m very much looking forward to getting started. The thing that most intrigued me is the aspect of grief, as Tiger (the MC) loses her mother in the novel. Glasgow wrote the novel because she misses her mother and sister. Most of you know my mother-in-law passed in September. And let me tell you, grief is hard and messy and absolutely sucks! I think it’s one of the most difficult things I’ve ever dealt with thus far. I’m hoping reading a book about dealing with grief and finding your way after bereavement will help me process my own loss. By no means am I expecting this to solve my problems, but just knowing other have survived loss like this will help me.

From the author of the New York Times bestselling novel Girl in Pieces comes a new heartbreaking story about love and loss and learning how to continue when it feels like you’re surrounded by darkness.

Here is what happens when your mother dies.

It’s the brightest day of summer and it’s dark outside. It’s dark in your house, dark in your room, and dark in your heart. You feel like the darkness is going to split you apart.

That’s how it feels for Tiger. It’s always been Tiger and her mother against the world. Then, on a day like any other, Tiger’s mother dies. And now it’s Tiger, alone.

Here is how you learn to make friends with the dark.

Massive thanks to Kate B at One World Publications for sending it to me and Rock the Boat for producing a beautiful proof. Keep an eye out for this next year, April 2019!
