Books On Our Radar: Once a King by Erin Summerill
Once a King by Erin Summerill is a companion book to her Clash of Kingdoms duology, which I loved! So I am extremely excited to get another book in this world. This story takes place after the events in Ever the Hunted and Ever the Brave, so technically you can read this as a standalone, but I highly recommend the duology too! I am excited to see what the King has to offer to try and change the decades old laws and prejudices against the women who posses magic and bring peace to their kingdoms. Thank you so much to HMH Teen for providing me with an advance copy & I can’t wait to read it! Once a King is releasing on December 4th, 2018, and you should add it to your TBR now!

Aodren: A lonely, young king, searching for a way to dismantle his father’s dark legacy.
Lirra: A girl with the power to control the wind, torn between duty and following her dreams
For twenty years, Channelers—women with a magical ability—have been persecuted in Malam by those without magic. Now King Aodren wants to end the bloody divide and unite his kingdom. But decades of hatred can’t be overcome by issuing decrees, and rumors of a deadly Channeler-made substance are only fueling people’s fears. Lirra has every reason to distrust Aodren. Yet when he asks for help to discover the truth behind the rumors, she can’t say no. With Lirra by his side, Aodren sees a way forward for his people. But can he rewrite the mistakes of the past before his enemies destroy the world he’s working so hard to rebuild?
