FEB 4 - Two new titles from Entangled Publishing

Two new releases from Entangled Publishing

Summary (by Goodreads)

A mighty flame follows a tiny spark.

Cora Sandoval’s mother disappeared when she was five and they were living in Ireland. Since then, her dad has been more than overprotective, and Cora is beginning to chafe under his confines. But even more troubling is the colorful light she suddenly sees around people. Everyone, that is, except herself—instead, she glows a brilliant, sparkling silver.

As she realizes the danger associated with these strange auras, Cora is inexplicably drawn to Finn, a gorgeous Irish exchange student who makes her feel safe. Their attraction is instant, magnetic, and primal—but her father disapproves, and Finn’s mother orders him home to Ireland upon hearing he’s fallen in love. After a fight with her father, Cora flees to Ireland, both to follow Finn and to look for her missing mother.

There she meets another silver-haloed person and discovers the meaning of her newfound powers and their role in a conspiracy spanning centuries—one that could change mankind forever…and end her life.

Scintillate is the first book in this lush and exciting new trilogy, full of romance, adventure and metaphysical mystery.

Summary (by Goodreads)

Never was there a tale of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo…But true love never dies. Though they’re parted by the veil between the world of mortals and the land of the dead, Romeo believes he can restore Juliet to life, but he’ll have to travel to the underworld with a thoroughly infuriating guide.

Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, may not have inherited his father’s crown, but the murdered king left his son a much more important responsibility—a portal to the Afterjord, where the souls of the dead reside. When the determined Romeo asks for help traversing the treacherous Afterjord, Hamlet sees an opportunity for adventure, and the chance to avenge his father’s death.

In an underworld filled with leviathan monsters, ghoulish shades, fire giants and fierce Valkyrie warriors, Hamlet and Romeo must battle their way through jealousy, despair, and their darkest fears to rescue the fair damsel. Yet finding Juliet is only the beginning, and the Afterjord doesn’t surrender souls without a price…

I was thinking of posting these two titles on a Stacking the Shelves meme or even a Waiting on Wednesday meme but I wanted to do a separate post.  Thank you to Entangled Publishing for sending me copies of both of these titles.  I am excited to read them for very different reasons.  The last time I read about Romeo and Juliet, Romeo was trying to kill her in another life.  They were very "fatally" attracted to one another thanks to Stacey Jay.  I really do root for these star-crossed lovers.  Maybe I'm secretly a cheerleader for fated romance.  :)  As for Scintillate, I love the idea of reading auras.  It feels very natural and magical all at the same time.  Looking forward to both books.  All of the reviews I have read so far have been stellar.  If you are looking for a new title for Valentine's, perhaps you might want to consider one of these.  Both are released today.  Happy reading!
