    I’m looking forward to Reign of the Fallen and To Kill a Kingdom too! I didn’t know about Beyond a Darkened Shore – it sounds super interesting. I don’t think I’ve read a book inspired by Irish myths before.

    I am also so excited for ‘Thunderhead’ and ‘Reign of the Fallen.’ ‘Heart of Iron’ also sounds so amazing and I am definitely adding it to my TBR.

    I still have to do my post. But the BIGGEST anticipated release for me is Obsidio. I read Illuminae & Gemina twice last year, and I just love those books SO dang much.
