FOR THE LOVE OF QUADRICORNS EVERYWHERE, WHY IS THERE STILL NO FANTASY/SCI-FI CATEGORY FOR THE CHRISTY AWARDS!?!?!?!?!?!
There are 3 different contemporary categories, (yes, 3, contemporary, contemporary series, and contemporary romance) and two historical categories, but all we have for the fantasy/sci-fi genre is the Visionary category. Not that there’s anything wrong with visionary, but it’s not really for fantasy or sci-fi. I don’t know why. I really don’t. Every year I’m disappointed. EVERY YEAR.
In a world at war, a slave girl’s lethal curse could become one kingdom’s weapon of salvation. If the curse – and the girl – can be controlled.
As a slave in the war-weary kingdom of Faelen, seventeen-year-old Nym isn’t merely devoid of rights, her Elemental kind are only born male and always killed at birth – meaning, she shouldn’t even exist.
She’s a weather elemental! So Cool! I loved this book and it got some pretty good reviews from some big-name YA authors like Jay Asher (13 Reasons Why) and Marissa Meyer (The Lunar Chronicles). Book 2, Siren’s Fury, just came out last month.
