She Who Rides The Storm

About The Book

In this atmospheric YA fantasy that is Wicked Saints meets There Will Come a Darkness, four teens are drawn into a high-stakes heist in the perilous tomb of an ancient shapeshifter king.

Long ago, shapeshifting monsters ruled the Commonwealth using blasphemous magic that fed on the souls of their subjects. Now, hundreds of years later, a new tomb has been uncovered, and despite the legends that disturbing a shapeshifter’s final resting place will wake them once again, the Warlord is determined to dig it up.

But it isn’t just the Warlord who means to brave the traps and pitfalls guarding the crypt.

A healer obsessed with tracking down the man who murdered her twin brother.

A runaway member of the Warlord’s Devoted order, haunted by his sister’s ghost.

A snotty archaeologist bent on finding the cure to his magical wasting disease.

A girl desperate to escape the cloistered life she didn’t choose.

All four are out to steal the same cursed sword rumored to be at the very bottom of the tomb. But of course, some treasures should never see the light of day, and some secrets are best left buried…

Review

I absolutely loved this story and was so surprised that there has not been more hype surrounding it. The world-building and the character development is so well done that I could not help but feel drawn into this story in full. I felt like I was walking the very streets of the city with these characters. I sometimes have a hard time with multiple main characters. Usually because I tend to be drawn to one character or another, but I found that I was fully invested into each character and their story. 

Plus a lot of fantasy has become predictable but this story had a few twists that I definitely did not see coming. I can't wait to read again knowing all of the things I did not the first time!

I immediately am purchasing the special edition from the author because I just could not put this book down.
