Hi friends! I recently touched on some of the self-realizations I’ve had over the last few months in my “welcome back from hiatus” post, but I’d definitely say the biggest one I’ve had is finally accepting that I’m a slow reader.
While everybody is posting their “Mid-Year Book Freakouts” and talking about all the different books they’ve read in 2018, I’ve been staring dejectedly at the number “17” on my Goodreads tracker.

Author: Sarah Tolcser
Series: Sequel to Song of the Current
Genre: YA, high fantasy
Pub. Date: June 5th, 2018
Synopsis: Caro Oresteia spent her life waiting to be called by the river god, as those in her family had been for generations. But when she’s swept away on an adventure to save the Akhaian royal prince, Markos, her destiny is sealed by the sea god instead.
For now, Caro is landlocked, helping Markos reclaim his throne after nearly his entire family was assassinated in a political coup. Without any financial or military support, Markos is desperate for allies, and Caro has fought off more than one attempt on his life. When a powerful Archon offers his army in exchange for Markos’s marriage to his daughter, Caro must choose: Her love for Markos, or the fate of Akhaia? And more importantly: How much is she willing to risk to defy the sea god’s wishes and chart her own course?
With shipwrecks, lost treasure, old and new enemies, dark magic, and breathtaking romance, Sarah Tolcser weaves another epic story about chasing your fate.
