Year of the Reaper

Did I just willingly read a pandemic book? LOL – I thought maybe in a fantasy world it would be less devastating. Nope! In fact, in this book the devastation was much worse. Heavy emotions flood through this one, all of our main characters have been touched in some way. Cas was captured, tortured and held as a prisoner of war, a war that was going on during the pandemic (again, a little close to home on theme!). When he makes his way to his home city, what remains of his family are shocked, they thought he was killed in the pandemic. As they come to grips with his reappearance, he comes to grips with the fact that the king and his new wife are living in his home. The royal marriage was one that brought about a treaty of peace between the two warring kingdoms. Now, in a time of peace someone is targeting the new queen and Cas must find out who it is and how to stop them.

It’s funny, I chose this because I wanted a standalone fantasy and yet as I finished, I totally wanted more in this world. Cas and the other main characters we follow were lovely, principled people. There were quite a few twists that I thought were great and the ending tied everything up with a pretty bow. ⭐️⭐⭐️️⭐

Thanks to Netgalley for an advanced copy of this novel, although I didn’t actually get around to reading it until after I got my @fairyloot copy. All opinions above are my own.

Can you read book about pandemics anymore?
