I hope you are all well. Here in my corner of Texas we’re preparing to return to school. I have one son embarking on his collegiate voyage in the fall and another starting his junior year, so it’s going to be a year of adventure for me and mine. I won’t get to spend as much time reading, but there’s still time for one or two more books.
Okay, who am I kidding? There’s ALWAYS time for books, even if it is only a few minutes per day.
About a year ago I posted a review on this blog about Heartmender by V. Romas Burton. This year I’m thrilled to be able to tell you about the second book in the series: Heartbreaker.
Heartmender is the tale of Addie, a teenage girl who lives in a world where hearts are extracted before they can become hard and dead. In this book, Addie must protect her extracted heart from those who seek to possess it.
In Heartbreaker Addie has overcome the battle for ownership of her heart and returned to Barracks. At first triumphant in her victory, she soon discovers that having a heart brings its own set of burdens and pains. As she learns to live with her heart, Addie must also work to unite the Twelve Magisters of Decium before Ophidian, the prime enemy of the Maker, can plunge the entire realm into eternal darkness. Victory will not be easy, and it could come at a terrible cost. The only way Addie will win is if she can survive the heartbreak.
The action of Hearbreaker begins on page one and carries full-tilt through every chapter, taking readers from one conflict to another without sacrificing character development. There’s even a budding relationship for readers who enjoy a romance thread in their fantasy.
Heartmender will be released on September 1, and is currently available for pre-order. If you enjoyed Heartmender, you do not want to miss this book.
