Happy book birthday to Don’t Call the Wolf by Aleksandra Ross! Probably the one highest on my TBR from today’s YA releases, Ross’ novel seems to have a lot of intrigue. A monster bringing dragon, a queen losing the war, and a bunch of broken promises. Certainly a book worth taking a few extra glances at, I can’t wait to pick this one up myself.
A forest, besieged. A queen, unyielding. Fans of Leigh Bardugo and Holly Black will devour this deliciously dark Eastern European–inspired YA fantasy debut. When the Golden Dragon descended on the forest of Kamiena, a horde of monsters followed in its wake. Ren, the forest’s young queen, is slowly losing her battle against them. Until she rescues Lukasz—the last survivor of a heroic regiment of dragon slayers—and they strike a deal. She will help him find his brother, who vanished into her forest… if Lukasz promises to slay the Dragon. But promises are all too easily broken.
