Blog Tour Review - To Cage A God by Elizabeth May

 Blog Tour Review - To Cage A God by Elizabeth May To cage a god is divine. To be divine is to rule. To rule is to destroy. Using ancient secrets, Galina and Sera’s mother grafted gods into their bones. Bound to brutal deities and granted forbidden power no commoner has held in a millennia, the sisters have grown up to become living weapons. Raised to overthrow an empire―no matter the cost. With their mother gone and their country on the brink of war, it falls to the sisters to take the helm of the rebellion and end the cruel reign of a royal family possessed by destructive gods. Because when the ruling alurea invade, they conquer with fire and blood. And when they clash, common folk burn. While Sera reunites with her estranged lover turned violent rebel leader, Galina infiltrates the palace. In this world of deception and danger, her only refuge is an isolated princess, whose whip-smart tongue and sharp gaze threaten to uncover Galina’s secret. Torn between desire and duty, Galina mus

MG Takes On Thursday - Sky Song

Greetings and salutations,

It's been a while since I've got involved with other people's tags, but the lovely Mary over at Book Craic came up with a really nice one called #MGTakesOnThursday. You can find out all about it here.

I joined in on Twitter last week,



but I thought this week I'd do it as a proper blog post.

So my choice for this #MGTakesOnThursday is Sky Song by Abi Elphinstone.

I've chosen a line from page 11

The Ice Queen often spoke like this - about cursed marks and dreadful Gods - but, even though Eska could recall nothing from her past about either, some deep-rooted things couldn't be erased, like knowing right from wrong and sensing truth from lies.

My three words to describe Sky Song are

Magical
Sinister
Inventive 
 

 and I've taken a picture of the cover


Sky Song was the first of Abi's books I read, and is still my favourite.

I love the blending of fairytale magic, and real, wild nature. The inventions in it are amazing, the places in Erkenwald, like Deeproots and the Nevercliffs feel so magical yet so real, and they are places I'd love to visit, and the characters are so strong. It's a beautiful story about love and friendship and overcoming evil together.
