With some of my favorite series are coming to an end this month, September is going to be filled with bittersweet book binges!
On the plus side, fans of Sarah K. L. Wilson will be overjoyed to see the second book of her Bluebeard’s Secret series release (I know I’ve been waiting for it.)
And then there’s *dramatic pause* Dark Bringer. Bring on September!
Spellbound (Embracing Darkness Collection) – September 3
A dark and twisted fantasy standalone romance, where hate and love collide in a world filled with snarky witches and vengeful gods. Perfect for fans of To Kill a Kingdom and Kingdom of the Wicked.
Grieving from being torn from her beloved sister, who remained behind in the human kingdom, Elle makes it her life purpose to become a keeper in her cursekeeper coven.
But this calling won’t be an easy one.
The magic possessed by her small coven of four casts them as outsiders throughout the kingdom. Yet when witches are found murdered in the woods, the cursekeepers quickly become the town’s only hope.
Many believe the murders are the work of a god. An old one returned in search of vengeance. Elle, on the other hand, suspects Viktor, the new warlock to town, is somehow linked to the violent deaths. However, his agenda doesn’t stop there.
Crown Princess Academy: Book 2 – September 8
Crowned as the first Hybrid Queen, my battle with Light and Dark has only just begun.
Destroying the portal to the Light Fae Realm should have solved all my problems. No more pompous jerkwads telling us what to do, how to dress, how to live and how to die.
Little did I know that by closing one door, I opened another, one that let the gorgeous King of Malice waltz right into my world…
And into my heart.
Just like my heart, my body is split into two directions, one seeking the Light, and the other seeking the Darkness I’ve known all my life. I’m a Hybrid Queen, the first of my kind, and if I can’t learn to make Light and Malice coexist, I won’t be the only thing torn apart.
The Lightning Conjurer: The Reckoning – September 13
Four years after the collapse of the Inner circle, the Asterian Order is functioning as Aspen and the late Magistrate envisioned; containment centers have been shut down, antiquated laws have been abolished, and free elections for a new Prime Minister are underway.
However, in the absence of containment and conviction, the line between freedom and secrecy has been blurred; amid the turmoil, a fresh wave of Elemental Supremacism is threatening to take hold of the Asterian Parliament.
Aiden, Eileen, and Sophia are joined by an old nemesis to carry out their own top-secret quest: scouring the globe for rogue Elementalists with extraordinary powers.

Faerie itself is on the brink of destruction.

Everyone in Faerie is falling prey to the Fairfrost queen’s manipulation.
To restore Prince Brannick to his rightful place as High King, Elora must learn to trust herself.
It might be easier if her victories would last.
