Indie-Mas Day 10: Reliquary

Indie-Mas is my annual recap of all the great independently-published books I read in the previous year. I like to take this time to share the love–both by helping promote great indie books and giving them away! So without further ado…

On the tenth day of Indie-Mas, my author gave to me:

A feisty woman who can raise the dead
My favorite kind of love triangle
A New Orleans-based Fantasy with a Snarky Fairy
An Elemental Epic Fantasy
A Steampunk Dystopian
A Male-POV of my favorite trilogy
A Twin with Problems
An epic fantasy that left me breathless
Liz Lemon, Vampire Slayer


A Worldwide Urban Fantasy

This one was recommended to me by my favorite human Emily from Emily Reads Everything. I knew I needed to wait until the third book was out to really devour it, and I was glad I waited. Except the ending wasn’t…well, I’ll get to that in a second.

This one isn’t for the faint of heart. Magic is a potent drug, and those that deal in it are well aware of their power. Mattie is your perfect little conservative Wisconsin girl, engaged to a vet, planning her wedding on Pinterest, etc. Then her husband-to-be is kidnapped, and suddenly she’s sucked into a world she had no idea existed. Except she, herself, has always had an innate power. She’s a reliquary, meaning she can take magic into her body, hide it, and then release it back out. Super helpful for smuggling things in and out…

I loved the relationship between Mattie and Asa and it was interesting to watch it develop over the three books. Until the last chapter.

Sarah assures me that it’s not her plan to end the series at three books. May that bring you some comfort as you stare at the last page in horror.

    This book sounds really good! Can’t find author on Twitter. Link in Rafflecopter said profile doesn’t exist and I couldn’t find her by searching. Favorite fantasy I’ve read this year is without a doubt Fire and Flood by Victoria Scott

      The author’s twitter seems to have vanished. Interesting. Oh well. Thanks for commenting!

    I really really need to keep better track of when I read things. I think my favorite fantasy of 2016 was The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Gaiman.

    I don’t think I read a fantasy this year. I think I am long over due though. I have some good ones in my TBR list, including this one which I will be adding!

      Ha! I just went to add it on Goodreads, & guess what was already there! Definitely a must read!

    I tried to follow @finesarah, but it said the page does not exist! Nevermind! Just saw the post below saying that it seems to have vanished..
