This week’s Waiting on Wednesday is: Dare by Natalia Jaster
Dare (Foolish Kingdoms #2)
A Hotheaded Prisoner
They say she’s mad—made of madness, made of fire. In a cage by the sea, Flare dreams of escape. She yearns for the day when she’ll flee to a place only she knows, a hidden world of mystical waters and gilded sands.
The island is calling to her. And she she won’t let anyone keep her from it.
Especially not him.
A Coldhearted Prince
They say he’s cruel—crowned of cruelty, as cold as ice. A prince whose gaze cuts like the incisions he administers within his lab. Jeryn has sailed beyond his kingdom for the Trade, to bargain for those wild, imprisoned fools that make his skin crawl.
By law, they’re subjects meant for experimentation. And easy to despise.
One in particular. A girl seething at him from behind bars, with burning eyes and ready fists.
A Mythical Shipwreck
But on the cusp of transport, the tide rages. That uncharted island awaits, a dark tangle of foliage where creatures slither in the mist and poisons lurk in the flora.
Stranded, the prince and prisoner must fight to survive. In this mysterious rainforest, they must band together . . . if they don’t slay one another first. Or become something more to each other.
Something just as dangerous.
This is the second book in the Foolish Kingdoms series, the sequel to Trick which I read earlier this year. Jaster was the first self-published author I’ve read, and I was really impressed with Trick. So much so, I found it difficult to put the book down. So when I found out that she had a sequel coming out this year, I instantly put it on my want to read list on Goodreads. I’m hoping that this book will at least be as good as Trick.
I’ve tried looking to see if I can pre-order this book on Amazon, however the link is only for Kindle editions. Looks like I’ll only be able to order it on release date at the earliest.
(Note: This is a book with mature themes, therefore suitable for older readers)
