A Book Rec brought to you by @The_Review_Loft #13
Readers love to share about books they’re reading. We asked readers to recommend a book they enjoyed which most of their friends had not read. We’ll be sharing what we learned and hopefully you’ll find a new book to read. I know my TBR list will be growing as we get introduced to all these books.
Today Jenny from The Review Loft is sharing ➜ THE AFFILIATE series by KA Linde
K.A. Linde is known for her angst-driven contemporary romances but she’s even better at creating a world of fantasy, which is truly saying something. The Affiliate series is fantasy but don’t let that scare you off. I never used to read fantasy but when a series like this one comes along, it’s worth the genre jump. Linde has a knack for creating a detailed world with a strong, respectable, admirable heroine surrounded by tempting men and adrenaline-inducing scenarios. Once you enter the world of The Affiliate you won’t want to leave. Linde is currently working on the anticipated third installment of the series. Bonus: the audiobooks for this series are very enjoyable. The narration is above average and adds to the intensity on the page.
The Affiliate (Book 1 in The Affiliate series) On the day of her Presenting, in front of the entire Byern Court, seventeen-year-old Cyrene Strohm’s lifelong plans come to fruition when she’s chosen for one of the most prestigious positions in her homeland—an Affiliate to the Queen. Or so she thinks. When Cyrene receives a mysterious letter and an unreadable book, she finds nothing is as it seems. Thrust into a world of dangerous political intrigue and deadly magic, Cyrene’s position only grows more treacherous when she finds herself drawn to the one man she can never have… King Edric himself. Cyrene must decide if love is truly worth the price of freedom. Find out in this first book in USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde’s new Ascension series.
The Bound (Book 2) Cyrene Strohm is a Queen’s Affiliate, a high-ranking official of the court of Byern, with power and privilege to spare. But she’s also a keeper of dangerous secrets: like the fact that she holds the heart of the King, and that she possesses magic in a world where magic no longer exists. Determined to discover what this means and how to use her newfound abilities, Cyrene sets off for the distant land of Eleysia. An island nation where Affiliates are strictly forbidden from entering. But the journey is perilous, and the destination may mean utter ruin, as Cyrene comes to learn that everything she’s been told her whole life – about her court, her homeland, and even herself—are bound in a beautiful lie.
The Consort (Book 3) Book 3 in the Ascension series following Cyrene’s journey to discover magic, find true love, and unravel the mystery of 2000 years worth of history…
