Fae of the North (Court of Crown and Compass)
by E. Hall
Four crowns to take. One curse to break.
When Kiki receives a strange note and discovers a secret about her past that impacts her future, she’s thrown into another realm that’s nothing like her life as a failed demon slayer in New York City. While seeking counsel to understand why she suddenly has wings, she meets a guy who looks like a Viking and looks at her in a way that makes her all fluttery inside.
Soren spends too much time at the tile table and infuriating the king's guards—evidenced by the ink tainting his skin. He gave up fighting back a long time ago and is just trying to survive. The strange thing is, he can’t help but want to take flight and when he meets a beautiful stranger it’s like something inside is trying to beat its way out.
In the Northlands, trust is a foreign concept. The people are divided by fear and want, everyone is broken or does the breaking, and the ashpit consumes the rest. Desperate to help the people, Kiki and Soren find common ground to overthrow the false king and soon discover their destinies are wound tightly together.
However, with war looming, time isn’t on their side. It's a battle Kiki and Soren can't win on their own, but could divide them forever, and forever is what they each secretly want.
This is book 1 of 4 in the Court of Crown and Compass series. It’s romantic fantasy perfect for fans of The Cruel Prince, from the Folk of the Air series, by Holly Black and is chock full of mystery, danger, and sizzling kisses.
