The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon
I was so excited to get this book from the publisher via NetGalley!
This is my next book on the list. I have received the ARC via the publisher on NetGalley, So thank you so very much for that. I have already purchased the book and the audiobook! I needed this book in my life! I hope to get started on this tonight or tomorrow! The hype on this book has me truly intrigued but the size has me intimated. It will be my most accomplished size when I finish this book.
“No woman should be made to fear that she was not enough.”

An ancient enemy awakens.

Across the dark sea, Tané has trained all her life to be a dragonrider, but is forced to make a choice that could see her life unravel.
