From the award-winning author of the Dreamland series comes a new dark romantic fantasy about a young woman finding hope in her powers of destruction.
The Thief Kingdom is a place hidden within the world of Aadlior. Many whisper of its existence, but few have found this place, where magic and pleasure abound. There, the mysterious Thief King reigns supreme with the help of the Mousai, a trio of revered and feared sorceresses.
Larkyra Bassette may be the youngest of the Mousai, but when she sings her voice has the power to slay monsters. When it’s discovered the Duke of Lachlan is siphoning a poisonous drug from the Thief Kingdom and using it to abuse his tenants, Larkyra is offered her first solo mission to stop the duke. Eager to prove herself, Larkyra accepts by posing as the duke’s potential bride. But her plans grow complicated when she finds herself drawn to Lord Darius Mekenna, Lachlan’s rightful heir. Soon she suspects Darius has his own motivations for ridding Lachlan of the corrupt duke. Larkyra and Darius must learn to trust each other if there is to be any hope of saving the people of Lachlan—and themselves.
Welcome to the world of Aadilor, where lords and ladies can be murderers and thieves, and the most alluring notes are often the deadliest. Dare to listen?
Praise for SONG OF THE FOREVER RAINS
“A spellbinding read…A dark, lyrical fantasy that merges vast worldbuilding with the best of romance tropes.” —Kirkus Reviews
“It’s so easy to lose yourself in Mellow’s evocative and engaging prose. Song of the Forever Rains blends excellent world building, wonderful character dynamics, and slow burn romance. I’m already looking forward to the sequel.” —Charlie N. Holmberg, Wall Street Journal bestselling author
“A story so immersive, it will haunt you long after the last page.” —Staci Hart, bestselling author
“Remember you are brave, my songbird, so do not fear whatever you might feel.”
A young woman from a prestigious family can slay with just her voice. Beware when she starts to sing….
The only way I can really describe this book is simple, a BSer BSing a BSer. Games were played and you never fully knew who was scamming who. It was evilly delicious.
I really enjoyed the closeness of the three sisters. Even though they may have acted like brats (aren’t we all) they still looked out for one another and had each other’s backs. It reminded me of my relationship with my two sisters when I was younger. I love a book that makes me look at myself and reminisce about my younger years. *Sigh* To be an innocent tween again.
The characters were very well written and could stand on their own. No one really outshines another but they are all characters that you’ll always remember. Lark was a complete badass who could take down anyone who got in her way. But my favorite character was Darius. Deep down past that tough exterior, he had a massively warm heart and you felt all of his emotions through the pages.
Song of the Forever Rains was a decent read. I’m excited to see where E.J. takes us next. I’m sure that it’s going to be a wild ride!
