What’s Next (#90) – The Promise of an Outlaw Prince

What's Next? Hosted by IceyBooks
Hi everyone! Welcome to the another week of What’s Next?! Click here to read more about the meme and be sure to link up your posts below.

Here are a few I have to (or want to!) read soon. Which first?


The League of Princes returns in the hilariously epic conclusion to the hit series that began with Christopher Healy’s The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom, which the Los Angeles Times called “one of the more clever, hilariously successful incarnations of the current literary rage to rip apart and rewrite fairy tales.”

Prince Liam. Prince Frederic. Prince Duncan. Prince Gustav. You think you know those guys pretty well by now, don’t you? Well, think again. Posters plastered across the thirteen kingdoms are saying that Briar Rose has been murdered—and the four Princes Charming are the prime suspects. Now they’re on the run in a desperate attempt to clear their names. Along the way, however, they discover that Briar’s murder is just one part of a nefarious plot to take control of all thirteen kingdoms—a plot that will lead to the doorstep of an eerily familiar fortress for a final showdown with an eerily familiar enemy.


In the epic sequel to the New York Times bestselling novel, The School for Good and Evil, Sophie and Agatha are home, living out their Ever After. But life isn’t quite the fairy tale they expected.

When Agatha secretly wishes she’d chosen a different happy ending, she reopens the gates to the School for Good and Evil. But the world she and Sophie once knew has changed.

Witches and princesses, warlocks and princes are no longer enemies. New bonds are forming; old bonds are being shattered. But underneath this uneasy arrangement, a war is brewing and a dangerous enemy rises. As Agatha and Sophie battle to restore peace, an unexpected threat could destroy everything, and everyone, they love—and this time, it comes from within.

Promise of Shadows

Zephyr Mourning has never been very good at being a Harpy. She’d rather watch reality TV than learn forty-seven ways to kill a man, and she pretty much sucks at wielding magic. Zephyr was ready for a future pretending to be a normal human instead of a half-god assassin. But all that changes when her sister is murdered—and she uses a forbidden dark power to save herself from the same fate.

Zephyr is on the run from a punishment worse than death when an unexpected reunion with a childhood friend (a surprisingly HOT friend) changes everything. Because it seems like Zephyr might just be the Nyx, a dark goddess made flesh that is prophesied to change the power balance.

For hundreds of years the half-gods have lived in fear, and Zephyr is supposed to change that.

But how is she supposed to save everyone when she can’t even save herself?

    Tough choice this week. I’m not familiar with the first book A hero’s guide to being an outlaw. So I would say Promise of Shadows or The School for Good & Evil. Good luck choosing. I hope you enjoy your pick. Happy reading

    I just reviewed Promise of Shadows on my blog on Tuesday (take a look if you’re interested!), so I would say any of the books EXCEPT that one.

    Hehe. I’m so helpful :D

    But seriously, I recommend NOT reading that one.

    A World Without Princes – I just finished reading the eGalley and LOVED it. The first chapters are a little slow but it doesn’t take too long for it to get interesting.

    I recommend reading A World Without Princes! I haven’t read that series, but it’s always a good thing to continue a series if you enjoyed the first one.

    I don’t read a lot of middle grade or younger teen fiction, though these first two titles are ones I’ve seen around the blogosphere. Promise of Shadows seems really – no pun intended! – promising! I love a character-driven paranormal story line with plenty of growth and action, which the synopsis seems to indicate. I can’t wait to see what you think of these three – I hope they exceed your expectations! :)

    I haven’t read the School of Good and Evil or heard of the first book but I am definitely intrigued. As for Promise of Shadows, that one is on my TBR but I’m not sure what to expect. I would love to read your thoughts on that one ;)
