Bilan du mois de mai: Le mois de la Fantasy!

Hello les dragons! Le mois de mai est déjà fini, c’est FOU! Je ne l’ai pas vu passer… mais j’en ai quand même bien profité niveau lecture! En ce qui concerne le challenge du mois de la fantasy, j’ai eu un très bon départ la première moitié du mois, mais j’ai été ralenti par la suite car j’avais d’autres livres que je m’étais engagée à lire! Donc bon, par rapport à ma liste de départ (qui était fort ambitieuse), je pense que je n’ai même pas lu la moitié des livres prévus. Ce n’est pas grave, je suis quand même bien contente de mes lectures et je vous laisse les découvrir, ainsi que le total des points!

Hello everybody, today I am presenting you a book pretty different from what I use to read: The Bird and the Blade. Different, but so so good!

« Enslaved in Kipchak Khanate, Jinghua has lost everything: her home, her family, her freedom . . . until the kingdom is conquered by enemy forces and she finds herself an unlikely conspirator in the escape of Prince Khalaf and his irascible father across the vast Mongol Empire.
On the run, with adversaries on all sides and an endless journey ahead, Jinghua hatches a scheme to use the Kipchaks’ exile to return home, a plan that becomes increasingly fraught as her feelings for Khalaf evolve into an impossible love.
Jinghua’s already dicey prospects take a downward turn when Khalaf seeks to restore his kingdom by forging a marriage alliance with Turandokht, the daughter of the Great Khan. As beautiful as she is cunning, Turandokht requires all potential suitors to solve three impossible riddles to win her hand—and if they fail, they die.
Jinghua has kept her own counsel well, but with Khalaf’s kingdom—and his very life—on the line, she must reconcile the hard truth of her past with her love for a boy who has no idea what she’s capable of . . . even if it means losing him to the girl who’d sooner take his life than his heart. »
