Since the pandemic began, traveling has been out of the question. Reading is one of the best ways to escape to another world. These five books will take your mind on a journey through adventure, power, war, heartache, love, and much more.
1.) In the first book of the Crescent City series, House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Mass, Bryce Quinlan lives a pretty good but routine life: working all day and partying all night. After a demon murders her best friends, Bryce is caught in the middle of the investigation and will do whatever it takes to avenge their deaths. A notorious fallen angel, Hunt Athalar, is now enslaved to the Archangels, forcing him to assassinate his boss’s enemies. Due to an irresistible deal, Hunt Athalar has agreed to help Bryce find the murderer. Through their extensive searching, they found an evil power that threatens not only them but everyone they know and love as well. Through this dark force, Bryce and Hunt Athalar discover that the blazing passion between them might have enough power to set them free. This New York Times bestselling author, Sarah J. Mass, touches on the heartache of loss, the price of freedom, and the power of love.
2.) If you like House of Earth and Blood, we think you’ll love The Hybrid Queen by Catherine Edward. When Mia moves to Brookedge, she finds herself caught in the middle of a centuries-old war between the Lycan army and the Fae kingdom, Greenwood. With Mia being the last descendant of the crossover bloodline of vampires and witches, she is forced to bring the two species back together and end the war.
3.) Another similar book is Darkfever by Karen Marte Moning. This urban fantasy thriller has fae and shifters throughout. MacKayla Lane starts with a flawless life. After her sister is murdered, she sets out to find the culprit. With a cryptic message left from her sister’s killer, she travels to Ireland. MacKayla eventually winds up in a world where it’s nearly impossible to spot the difference between good and evil. Through this journey, she realizes she has a hidden power that allows her to see beyond the average eye and learn how to put it to good use. MacKayla soon finds that an evil man, Jericho, is following her and watching her every move. After deep and strategic thought, MacKayla’s end goal becomes very clear, and she is up for the challenge.
4) In the more modern novel The Iron King by Julie Kagawa, Meghan Chase finds out her brother has been kidnapped on her sixteenth birthday. To find him, Meghan must catch up to “the Fae” before he takes her brother to an evil place called Nevernever.
5) In A Kiss of Shadows by Laurell K. Hamilton, Merry Gentry is a private investigator in Los Angeles. At least that’s what she wants you to think. Merry Gentry is actually the princess of the high court of Faerie, but she doesn’t want people from her LA life to know about that. Merry’s life is going great until she is caught up in her dreaded aunt’s plan. If Merry succeeds, she gets the crown and the opportunity to live. If she fails, she dies.
