Favourite book of June 2023 - Review (Blogmad 2023 - Day 19)

 Hello everyone!!

Another post with another favourite book of the year. In June I continued reading the Crowns of Nyaxia books and of course The Ashes and the Star-Cursed King became my favourite of the month.

“Your soul is my soul. Your blood is my blood. Your heart is my heart.”
― Carissa Broadbent, The Ashes and the Star-Cursed King

The Ashes and the Star-Cursed King is the second book in the Crowns of Nyaxia series by Carissa Broadbent and it was as exciting as the first one. I read it after the Six Scorched Roses novella and I really liked it.

It focuses on what happens after the Kejari and it is still full of action and political intrigues. I really liked how Oraya and Raihn evolved as characters in this book and how we got to see and learn more about the world.
It had many surprising twists and turns but in the end everything wrapped up really good.

I cannot wait for the next installment.

Rating: 4 Stars

About the book:

Love is a sacrifice at the altar of power.

In the wake of the Kejari, everything Oraya once thought to be true has been destroyed. A prisoner in her own kingdom, grieving the only family she ever had, and reeling from a gutting betrayal, she no longer even knows the truth of her own blood. She’s left only with one certainty: she cannot trust anyone, least of all Raihn.

The House of Night, too, is surrounded by enemies. Raihn’s own nobles are none too eager to accept a Turned king, especially one who was once a slave. And the House of Blood digs their claws into the kingdom, threatening to tear it apart from the inside.

When Raihn offers Oraya a secret alliance, taking the deal is her only chance at reclaiming her kingdom–and gaining her vengeance against the lover who betrayed her. But to do so, she’ll need to harness a devastating ancient power, intertwined with her father’s greatest secrets.

But with enemies closing in on all sides, nothing is as it seems. As she unravels her past and faces her future, Oraya finds herself forced to choose between the bloody reality of seizing power – and the devastating love that could be her downfall.

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