Books On Our Radar: White Stag by Kara Barbieri
White Stag by Kara Barbieri is one of those soon to be released books that a lot of people are talking about right now. It was a well-known Wattpad sensation. So of course now that Wednesday Books is publishing the story, I had to check it out for myself and share with you all! This debut fantasy is about a mortal girl stolen into the world of goblins and for the last 100 years has suffered. She never stops hoping she will be able to return home. Yeah, sounds fascinating! I have seen some trigger warnings, so if you are like me and like to know that going in, I want to make sure I share that knowledge too. I haven’t read it yet so no true opinions here. So if you are looking for a new dark fantasy, put White Stag on your TBR for the January 8th release!

Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy
The first book in a brutally stunning series where a young girl finds herself becoming more monster than human and must uncover dangerous truths about who she is and the place that has become her home.As the last child in a family of daughters, seventeen-year-old Janneke was raised to be the male heir. While her sisters were becoming wives and mothers, she was taught to hunt, track, and fight. On the day her village was burned to the ground, Janneke—as the only survivor—was taken captive by the malicious Lydian and eventually sent to work for his nephew Soren.
Janneke’s survival in the court of merciless monsters has come at the cost of her connection to the human world. And when the Goblin King’s death ignites an ancient hunt for the next king, Soren senses an opportunity for her to finally fully accept the ways of the brutal Permafrost. But every action he takes to bring her deeper into his world only shows him that a little humanity isn’t bad—especially when it comes to those you care about.
Through every battle they survive, Janneke’s loyalty to Soren deepens. After dangerous truths are revealed, Janneke must choose between holding on or letting go of her last connections to a world she no longer belongs to. She must make the right choice to save the only thing keeping both worlds from crumbling.
