This week I am waiting on
To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo
Publication Date: March 6th, 2018
Princess Lira is siren royalty and the most lethal of them all. With the hearts of seventeen princes in her collection, she is revered across the sea. Until a twist of fate forces her to kill one of her own. To punish her daughter, the Sea Queen transforms Lira into the one thing they loathe most—a human. Robbed of her song, Lira has until the winter solstice to deliver Prince Elian’s heart to the Sea Queen or remain a human forever.
The ocean is the only place Prince Elian calls home, even though he is heir to the most powerful kingdom in the world. Hunting sirens is more than an unsavory hobby—it’s his calling. When he rescues a drowning woman in the ocean, she’s more than what she appears. She promises to help him find the key to destroying all of sirenkind for good—But can he trust her? And just how many deals will Elian have to barter to eliminate mankind’s greatest enemy
Fun fact, Alexandra’s blog was one of the few I followed before I started my own, so I am thrilled to feature her book this week. To start, the cover is all kinds of scaly and creepy and the premise sounds sinister and intriguing. I’ve always been fascinated by the mythology of sirens, so I’m excited to see how that is explored in the book.
What’s your most anticipated book?
