Hello and welcome to another Goodreads Monday!
This weekly meme was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners and it invites you to pick a book from your TBR and explain why you want to read it. Easy peasy!
I have a huge “want to read” list on goodreads at the moment so ill be using a random number generator to pick one from the list to talk about. So without further ado….
The magic number is 154! Which means that the featured book this week is Rhapsodic by Laura Thalassa. Currently rated 4.07 based on over 45000 reviews and published in November 2016.
Callypso Lillis is a siren with a very big problem, one that stretches up her arm and far into her past. For the last seven years she’s been collecting a bracelet of black beads up her wrist, magical IOUs for favours she’s received. Only death or repayment will fulfil the obligations. Only then will the beads disappear.
Everyone knows that if you need a favour, you go to the Bargainer to make it happen. He’s a man who can get you anything you want… at a price. And everyone knows that sooner or later he always collects.
But for one of his clients, he’s never asked for repayment. Not until now. When Callie finds the fae king of the night in her room, a grin on his lips and a twinkle in his eye, she knows things are about to change. At first it’s just a chaste kiss—a single bead’s worth—and a promise for more.
For the Bargainer, it’s more than just a matter of rekindling an old romance. Something is happening in the Otherworld. Fae warriors are going missing one by one. Only the women are returned, each in a glass casket, a child clutched to their breast. And then there are the whispers among the slaves, whispers of an evil that’s been awoken.
If the Bargainer has any hope to save his people, he’ll need the help of the siren he spurned long ago. Only, his foe has a taste for exotic creatures, and Callie just happens to be one.
Why do I want to read it?
I am such a huge fan of urban fantasy and paranormal romance and so when I saw a book about a siren and a fae king I absolutely couldn’t resist. I hadn’t ever heard of it before so I was surprised to see it has so many ratings so it’s obviously a fairly popular book which could be a good or a bad thing. I had completely forgotten that this one was on my list but I am excited all over again for this one now! ♥
