When seventeen-year-old Nedra Brysstain leaves her home in the rural, northern territories of Lunar Island to attend the prestigious Yugen Academy, she has only one goal in mind: learn the trade of medicinal alchemy. A scholarship student matriculating with the children of Lunar Island’s wealthiest and most powerful families, Nedra doesn’t quite fit in with the other kids at Yugen, who all look down on her.
All, except for Greggori “Grey” Astor. Grey is immediately taken by the brilliant and stubborn Nedra, who he notices is especially invested in her studies. And that’s for a good reason: a deadly plague has been sweeping through the North, and it’s making its way toward the cities. With her family’s life–and the lives of all of Lunar Island’s citizens–on the line, Nedra is determined to find a cure for the plague.
Grey and Nedra continue to grow closer, but as the sickness spreads and the body count rises, Nedra becomes desperate to find a cure. Soon, she finds herself diving into alchemy’s most dangerous corners–and when she turns to the most forbidden practice of all, necromancy, even Grey might not be able to pull her from the darkness.
I have this to read next after I finish with my current read, but I’m pretty excited for it! I mean, hey, Beth Revis is back writing Fantasy! Also, Nedra is an anti-heroine! I’m almost sure I’d like her at eh very least. Common, let’s be real, if I loved Adelina, I think Nedra will also grow on me. Frankly, just give me all the anti-heroines! I need them in my life, girls & women who are in between, neither pure or dark – grey, in-between – because that’s how real people are in reality, neither good nor bad.
What book/s are you excited for this week?
