Tuscan Mac & Cheese | #WeeklyMenu Week #227

Happy Monday! There are only two more weeks until Christmas and I have to say that I only need to buy one more present and then I am done. Usually, I'm a last minute shopper, but because I had to do a lot of my shopping on line, I needed to start early. I'm just glad its all done.

There was not a lot of writing this week. It really makes me sad, but I will be ok. Maybe this coming week, I will pick up the pen again and put words on paper... Or maybe not.

Here is this weeks menu!

Bring Peace to a Divided Nation | The Rogue Queen by Emily R. King

Title: The Rogue Queen
By: Emily R. King
Genre: Fantasy
Pages: 302
Release Date: February 13th, 2018
Publisher: Skyscape

Summary from Goodreads: Despite the odds, Kalinda has survived it all: Marriage to a tyrant. Tournaments to the death. The forbidden power to rule fire. The icy touch of a demon.

That same demon now disguises itself as Rajah Tarek, Kalinda’s late husband and a man who has never stopped haunting her. Upon taking control of the palace and the army, the demon brands Kalinda and her companions as traitors to the empire. They flee across the sea, seeking haven in the Southern Isles.

In Lestari, Kalinda’s powers are not condemned, as they are in her land. Now free to use them to protect those she loves, Kalinda soon realizes that the demon has tainted her with a cold poison, rendering her fire uncontrollable. But the lack of control may be just what she needs to send the demon back to the darkest depths of the Void.

To take back the empire, Kalinda will ally with those she distrusts—and risk losing those most loyal to her—to defeat the demon and bring peace to a divided nation.

Review: A fantastic end to a wonderful journey. I was super excited to receive a review copy of this book. There was so much action and adventure. Please playing both sides, or having a hard time picking sides. It was an epic battle to the end. I wished there was more of the world building. All the wonders of Kalinda's world almost fell away with the action. I've always been on for description, but I know this is the third book in the series and some world building has already been done. 

Gratz to Emily R. King for giving us a crazy ride inside a fantastic mystical world.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

Sea of Strangers (The Ryogan Chronicles #2) by Erica Cameron
presented by Entangled Teen!
Grab your copy today!
Congratulations Erica!
Know your enemy if you want to survive…
The only way for Khya to get her brother back alive is to kill Varan—the immortal ruler who can’t be killed. But not even Varan knew what he was doing when he perverted magic and humanity to become immortal. Khya’s leading her group of friends and rebels into the mountains that hold Varan’s secrets, but if risking all their lives is going to be worth it, she has to give up everything else—breaking the spell that holds her brother captive and jeopardizing her deepening relationship with Tessen, the boy who has been by turns her rival and refuge since her brother disappeared. Immortality itself might be her only answer, but if that’s where Khya has to go, she can’t ask Tessen or her friends to follow.
