Year of the Reaper by Makiia Lucier - A review


“We are not promised a long life, Cassia. Just a life. Take what happiness you can. Hold tight to it.”

Year of the Reaper by Makiia Lucier is a standalone YA fantasy that was published in November 2021.

I read it as part of the Fairyloot monthly read along and I loved it. 
I didn't have high hopes for it but thankfully it surprised me and became a 5 star read for me. All the plot twists made it even more gripping and I kept turning the pages. 
I loved the characters and the writing style and I wish it had a sequel, so I could spend more time with the characters. I loved how the relationship between Cas and Lena evolved. It seemed natural and not rushed.

Rating: 5 Stars

About the book:

The past never forgets . . .

Before an ambush by enemy soldiers, Lord Cassia was an engineer's apprentice on a mission entrusted by the king. But when plague sweeps over the land, leaving countless dead and devastating the kingdom, even Cas’ title cannot save him from a rotting prison cell and a merciless sickness.

Three years later, Cas wants only to return to his home in the mountains and forget past horrors. But home is not what he remembers. His castle has become a refuge for the royal court. And they have brought their enemies with them.

When an assassin targets those closest to the queen, Cas is drawn into a search for a killer…one that leads him to form an unexpected bond with a brilliant young historian named Lena. Cas and Lena soon realize that who is behind the attacks is far less important than why. They must look to the past, following the trail of a terrible secret—one that could threaten the kingdom’s newfound peace and plunge it back into war.

See you in the next post and don't forget to keep reading!!!
