Today’s pick is:
Tess of the Road
RELEASING FEBRUARY 27TH, 2018!
In the medieval kingdom of Goredd, women are expected to be ladies, men are their protectors, and dragons get to be whomever they want. Tess, stubbornly, is a troublemaker. You can’t make a scene at your sister’s wedding and break a relative’s nose with one punch (no matter how pompous he is) and not suffer the consequences. As her family plans to send her to a nunnery, Tess yanks on her boots and sets out on a journey across the Southlands, alone and pretending to be a boy.
Where Tess is headed is a mystery, even to her. So when she runs into an old friend, it’s a stroke of luck. This friend is a quigutl–a subspecies of dragon–who gives her both a purpose and protection on the road. But Tess is guarding a troubling secret. Her tumultuous past is a heavy burden to carry, and the memories she’s tried to forget threaten to expose her to the world in more ways than one.
Tess of the Road just sounds like such a fun, and adventurous book! Plus, I love how sassy Tess appears to be. I haven’t heard a whole lot about this book yet, but the author’s other book, Seraphina, is well-loved by so many (and one that is actually still on my TBR), so I’m sure Tess of the Road will be just as good!
