I received an eARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Thank you, Pen Name Publishing, and J.M. Sullivan for given opportunity.

Synopsis: #AlwaysProtectYourQueen

Ever since the outbreak of the Plague, life hasn’t been easy, and for seventeen-year-old Alice Carroll, it just got worse. Her sister, Dinah, has contracted the ‘un-deadly’ Momerath Virus and without a cure, will soon be worse than dead. She’ll be momerath.

Alice must leave the safety of the Sector and venture into Momerath Territory to find the antidote – if it exists. Chasing a rumor about a mysterious doctor with the cure, Alice falls down the rabbit hole into Wanderland, where ravenous momerath aren’t the only danger lurking. (cr.: Goodreads)

So hiiii, it’s time for another quote hunting!

As you can wildly guess, it’s A Court of Wings and Ruin quote hunting, and I should confess to you that I didn’t focus myself much on finding quotes when I was reading the book. I was so immersed into the plot I probably lost some. Nonetheless, let’s do it!


As usual, this is a spoiler alert. If you haven’t read ACOWAR yet, feel free to skip this post.

Synopsis: “Every book has its secret…”
For several hundreds of years, the unlimited power of books was kept secret by bibliomantic society. Magic, traveling through time and space – this is only a small part of what books are capable of. Some books even allow you to alter the past…

Furia Salamandra Faerfax is a hereditary bibliomant, one of the most powerful magician in the ancient Rosenkreutz family. Her family has been hiding for years from the agents of Adamantine Academy because of the mistake commited in the past. The Faerfax family is hunting “empty” books that are capable of exterminating everything ever written on the Earth. But they have enemies much worse than the Academy, hungry for blood revenge… Furia loses everyone – her beloved father, her younger brother, all of her family. The only thing left for her is to fight.

But this year, Scarlett’s long-dreamt of invitation finally arrives. With the help of a mysterious sailor, Tella whisks Scarlett away to the show. Only, as soon as they arrive, Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind organizer, Legend. It turns out that this season’s Caraval revolves around Tella, and whoever finds her first is the winner.

But she nevertheless becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic with the other players in the game. And whether Caraval is real or not, she must find Tella before the five nights of the game are over, a dangerous domino effect of consequences is set off, and her sister disappears forever.
