Our book of the month for July and August is this dark fantasy gem from C.D. Beaudin. Jehl Fahara returns to her isolated childhood home leaving magic and power, love and betrayal behind her. She yearns for hope and healing but she finds that she can’t hide from her dark past and her own desire for revenge. If you love stories like Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi or An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir you’ll love this story of love and magic gone wrong by young Canadian author C.D. Beaudin.
Beaudin weaves together the stories and perspectives of multiple characters, most of them deeply flawed with dark pasts, in a rich, epic fantasy story.
