Release Date: Sixth of November 2018.
In amidst my reading slump I read Rosemarked by Livia Blackburne, and I loved it. I personally felt like it was still very original despite featuring some typical tropes found in YA Fantasy. It still felt fresh and new despite their presence and I loved it. So I’m excited to share the cover and blurb for the sequel, Umbertouched, with you all today. There’s also a giveaway hosted by the author at the end of this post! If you haven’t read the first book I advise against reading the blurb. Spoilers.
The mission was a failure. Even though Zivah and Dineas discovered a secret that could bring down the empire, their information is useless without proof. Now, with their cover blown and their quest abandoned, their only remaining hope is to get home before Ampara brings the full might of its armies against their peoples.
As Shidadi and Dara alike prepare for war, Zivah and Dineas grapple with the toll of their time in the capital. After fighting alongside the Amparans against his own kin, can Dineas convince the Shidadi—and himself—where his loyalties lie? After betraying her healer’s vows in Sehmar City, can Zivah find a way to redeem herself—especially when the Dara ask her to do the unthinkable? And after reluctantly falling in love, what will the two do with their lingering feelings, now that the Dineas from Sehmar City is gone forever? Time is running out for all of them, but especially Zivah whose plague symptoms surface once again. Now, she must decide how she’ll define the life she has left.
Together, healer and warrior must find the courage to save their people, expose the truth, and face the devastating consequences headed their way.
Add it on Goodreads: Umbertouched by Livia Blackburne
I can’t wait to read Umbertouched and see how Zivah and Dineas’ relationship progresses. And what happens when they get back. I’m kind of scared for Zivah, and the plague symptoms she’s apparently suffering again, but I’m sure she’ll be the one to find a cure or something. She’s so resourceful and intelligent. If anyone is going to find a cure, it’s her.
