thousand skies


Empress of a Thousand Skies by Rhoda Belleza

Honor, bravery, loyalty–these made up her ma’tan sarili, the three values.

It was an everyday Kalusian greeting, but it meant much more than hello or goodbye. It translated to “highest self,” and to say it was a pledge to be the best person you could be.

“It would’t matter if you visited a million worlds. You never know everything about another person - not even someone you love. You can’t, and you wouldn’t want to. 

“You have to love the mystery. You have to take a chance.”

The Firebird Trilogy by Claudia Gray

Rainbow books on a rainy day. ♡🌧

I received my pre-order of Empress of a Thousand Skies and Wintersong today. I already read Wintersong, and I looove love this fantasy book. The prose is gorgeous accompanied by luminous writing and swoon-worthy otp. I plan to reread it later this month. ⭐🎶 I haven’t read Empress yet but I intend to start it tonight! It’s been compared to SAGA and Rogue One which are two of my favorite things. I’m crossing my fingers, I’ll love it!
