Books On Our Radar: To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo
To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo is probably my most-anticipated read for 2018! (As of right now. I reserve the right to change this view at any point without notice 😉 ). I LOVE fairy tale retellings, so this being a Little Mermaid one is beyond exciting. It’s different than the typical fare in the genre. And I’m not gonna lie, a princess saving a prince is gold. I’m looking for the unique in fantasy these days and only hope this lives up to the hype in my head! To Kill a Kingdom will be hitting shelves on March 6th, 2018 so add it to your TBR now!

Princess Lira is siren royalty and the most lethal of them all. With the hearts of seventeen princes in her collection, she is revered across the sea. Until a twist of fate forces her to kill one of her own. To punish her daughter, the Sea Queen transforms Lira into the one thing they loathe most—a human. Robbed of her song, Lira has until the winter solstice to deliver Prince Elian’s heart to the Sea Queen or remain a human forever.
The ocean is the only place Prince Elian calls home, even though he is heir to the most powerful kingdom in the world. Hunting sirens is more than an unsavory hobby—it’s his calling. When he rescues a drowning woman in the ocean, she’s more than what she appears. She promises to help him find the key to destroying all of sirenkind for good—But can he trust her? And just how many deals will Elian have to barter to eliminate mankind’s greatest enemy?
