In the beginning, there was the Namsara: the child of sky and spirit, who carried love and laughter wherever he went. But where there is light, there must be darkness—and so there was also the Iskari. The child of blood and moonlight. The destroyer. The death-bringer.

These are the legends that Asha, daughter of the king of Firgaard, has grown up learning in hushed whispers, drawn to the forbidden figures of the past. But it isn’t until she becomes the fiercest, most feared dragon slayer in the land that she takes on the role of the next Iskari—a lonely destiny that leaves her feeling more like a weapon than a girl.

Asha conquers each dragon and brings its head to the king, but no kill can free her from the shackles that await at home: her betrothal to the cruel commandant, a man who holds the truth about her nature in his palm. When she’s offered the chance to gain her freedom in exchange for the life of the most powerful dragon in Firgaard, she finds that there may be more truth to the ancient stories than she ever could have expected. With the help of a secret friend—a slave boy from her betrothed’s household—Asha must shed the layers of her Iskari bondage and open her heart to love, light, and a truth that has been kept from her.

❄️ Hi guys!! I hope you’re having the best day & you’re enjoying your reading 💞  Today I bring you our beloved Wrap Up of the month of July where I’ll talk about all the books I’ve read during the month. July really flew for me, I feel it happened SO fast, don’t you think? God, the year, in general, is flying by. So how was my month? SO GOOD, actually, I feel very HAPPY for how I’ve done it this month with both, my readings and my interaction with you, which is always a priority for me, and everything that has to do with blogging life has been very positive as well.😊 I’ve been very committed to learning more about blogging stuff because I think there’s always something else to learn and improve and I have many surprises to share with you in the next month, and I’m super excited about it, I still don’t want to tell anything, though. I really feel more and more committed to my blog, more excited to do new things and I really feel that it has become a very important part of my life so that makes me feel enthusiastic and complete. 👏🏻 

 💞 I want to THANK YOU as every month for being there for me, always supporting me and giving me encouragement to continue and improve every day. It’s already like a habit for me to thank you each month, but, it’s very important for me that you know this, so I wouldn’t want to not to say so. 💞 

I’ve participated in The Book Junkie Trials Read-A-Thon, 🌟  which I adored, I remember that I planned to take July as a chill month, without reading anything other than what I wanted and well when I saw that this read-a-thon was so original and unique, I knew I couldn’t miss it!. 😍  It was a lot of fun, I couldn’t complete it, though, I just missed the group book, so I’m a bit sad about that, but on the other hand, I found an INCREDIBLE book thanks to this read-a-thon, so I’m more than happy to have participated. Besides seeing what everyone was reading and sharing that experience was so AMAZING.

So going back to my readings… OMG, it has been a great month!!, you’ll see more in my statistics below, but it has been a month where I feel that I’ve read things that I really wanted to read, so despite not having enjoyed all of them, I’m happy to have tried. I have a couple of disappointments between my readings but the majority of the books were all SO PRECIOUS. Super different concepts, a lot of fantasy, because who would I be, right? 😅, and I tried a genre that has always intimidated me a little. Without further ado, I’m dying to start sharing with you all about the books I’ve read, and I also have some post recommendations around the blogosphere that you won’t want to miss! 💫 

Let’s get started!❄️
