There are so many INCREDIBLE debut novels coming out this year, my TBR pile is absolutely quivering in anticipation! I want to help spread the word about some of these amazing new books and authors, so I’ll be doing a feature each Friday for a debut author you need to keep on your bookish radar!
I am so thrilled to read this STUNNING debut novel by Rhoda Belleza. Not only do I think this story sounds incredible, but Rhoda seems like she is going to be an up-and-coming YA author to keep an eye on. I’m also a huge fan of Paper Lantern Lit and the work that they do. So mark those TBR lists, because this debut novel is coming out on February 7th!
About Rhoda Belleza
Rhoda Belleza was raised in Los Angeles, where she grew up writing X-Files fanfiction and stuffing her face with avocados. She’s a children’s editor at a publishing house and writes from a sunny Brooklyn apartment stuffed with far too many bikes and far too many shoes. When she’s not writing, Rhoda obsesses over nail art tutorials, watches kung fu movies, and sews together crooked things that pass for clothes. Empress of a Thousand Skies is her debut novel. Follow her on Twitter @rhodabee.
Empress of a Thousand Skies
Rhee, also known as Crown Princess Rhiannon Ta’an, is the sole surviving heir to a powerful dynasty. She’ll stop at nothing to avenge her family and claim her throne.
Aly has risen above his war refugee origins to find fame as the dashing star of a DroneVision show. But when he’s falsely accused of killing Rhee, he’s forced to prove his innocence to save his reputation – and his life.
Out February 7th, 2017!!!!
