Recently Acquired: Beyond the Shadowed Earth



Hello Lovely Bookworms!

I am here with another eARC from NetGalley! I requested Beyond the Shadowed Earth a few weeks ago. I did notice that it was the second in a series and obviously purchased the first one. Both sound amazing and I am hoping to read them either this month or next month.

40778901._SY475_.jpgSynopsis: “It has always been Eda’s dream to become empress, no matter the cost. Haunted by her ambition and selfishness, she’s convinced that the only way to achieve her goal is to barter with the gods. But all requests come with a price and Eda bargains away the soul of her best friend in exchange for the crown.

Years later, her hold on the empire begins to crumble and her best friend unexpectedly grows sick and dies. Gnawed by guilt and betrayal, Eda embarks on a harrowing journey to confront the very god who gave her the kingdom in the first place. However, she soon discovers that he’s trapped at the center of an otherworldly labyrinth and that her bargain with him is more complex than she ever could have imagined.

Set in the same universe as Joanna’s debut, Beneath the Haunting SeaBeyond the Shadowed Earth combines her incredible world building and lush prose with a new, villainous lead.” (Goodreads)

  1. This is embarrassing but I thought for a second there ‘ That’s the longest cover I’ve ever seen’ until I realise it’s two books 😛 Serves me right for skimming to the pictures first before starting to read haha! These sound awesome though. I’m always up for a story that mixes ambition and gods!
