Freya InfernoFreya’s Inferno (Winging It #1)
by Sonja Bair

Find Freya’s Inferno on Goodreads

Freya Holm is smart, quick-witted, and an Alva—a paranormal species with the ability to fly. In a bid for a normal life outside of family expectations, she moved across the country. But within a few days of arriving in a small California town, she finds herself fighting over the last bag of lentils with an attractive but ill-tempered werewolf named David.

David Waterstone is desperate for normal, too. Recently banished from his pack, he finds himself struggling to stay sane. The presence of another supernatural power in his new town, especially one as inquisitive and lively as Freya, makes his struggle even harder.

When their new city gets besieged by an insane supernatural with a passion for Dante’s Inferno, Freya’s family sends in one of her old schoolmates. Alrik Isaksson has long been in love with Freya, but she can’t see beyond their hurtful history. Despite the tension, David, Alrik, and Freya must work together and use their intellect, supernatural powers, and sense of humor to survive the layers of Hell being created in their town by a maniac with a passion for literature.

by P.J. Hetherhouse

Find The Goat’s Taleon Goodreads

The Tales of the Zodiac is a series inspired by Celtic mythology, Arthurian legend and, most importantly, astrology. Living in a time when Mother Nature has resumed control, the human race has regressed back to its feudal past. It is here, in two civilisations gripped by political intrigue and religious fanaticism, that the tales take place. We begin with Capricorn – The Goat’s Tale.

by Jenn Gott

Find The Lady of Souls on Goodreads

For Praxis Fellows, greatness has always been a given. But life doesn’t always go according to plan, and now she finds herself half a world away from where she started. Banned from using magic, employed by the son of a railroad baron to realize a dead man’s dreams, Praxis’ life has become a sort of living death.

Kaedrich Mannly has never done anything of consequence. As the newest member of the household staff of Brindlewood Hall, his role in simple: stay out of sight, and do as he’s told. It’s a far cry from the dreams of his childhood, when he and his twin would rule their imaginary kingdom in the forest, but even if he was brave enough to take on the hero’s role these days, there’s too much at stake for him to risk stepping out of his narrow comfort zone.

When a mysterious beast attacks the local village, both Praxis and Kaedrich end up with more than they bargained for. Soon they find themselves bound together on a quest to discover the source of a growing breach between the land of the living and the dead, on a journey that will take them far beyond the walls of their quiet lives—if they have the nerve to see it through. Because as they both soon realize, saving the world isn’t quite the fate that they’d dreamed it would be.

Now it’s time to vote!

  1. I was torn between The Lady of Souls and Freya’s Inferno – they both sound really good and I love both covers. But, Freya’s Inferno sounds like it’s going to pretty love triangle-y so I went with The Lady of Souls 🙂

    • I don’t think I read much of the blurb of Freya’s Inferno as the lentil sentence sold me, lol. I don’t think I even read that last alinea, but yeah that does sound like it might be a love triangle. I like the Lady of Souls cover, it’s simple, but unique and pretty.

    • Me too, it sounds interesting. Although I haven’t read Dante’s Inferno, so I wonder if that’s going to a problem, I hope not.

    • I haven’t read a lot of books with myhtology as a theme/ genre, but the ones I have read I did enjoy, so I hope this will be a good one.

    • I actually wanted to read it because of the lentil fight ;). I don’t know a lot of Dante’s Inferno so not sure what to expect. Although hearing other people being excited about that aspect, makes me curious too.
