An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

AnEmberintheAshes

An Ember in the Ashes gets compared to Game of Thrones pretty much all. the. time. And for good reason. They’re both incredibly addictive and BRUTAL. If you pick this series up, prepare to binge it and then brave the treacherous wait for book 4!

Is it too soon for you to move on from Game of Thrones? We get it! If you need to press pause on the epic genius that is fantasy storytelling, just be ready to dive back in to Rosaria Munda’s Fireborne on October 15, 2019. Dragons will rise, dear readers (and they won’t be taken out with secretly-hidden-but-also-in-plain-sight scorpions)!

 

A River of Royal Blood by Amanda Joy

If you’re missing the intense magic and cutthroat battles from Game of Thrones, you’ll definitely want to keep your eye out for A River of Royal Blood this October!

 

Steel Tide by Natalie C. Parker
